Do you need to wear braces to straighten your teeth, but don’t like how it looks? There is a discreet option available: Sardinia House Dental Practice is a provider of lingual braces in London.

Lingual braces are a variation of wire braces. They use custom brackets and arcs attached to the inner side of the teeth, located on the tongue and palate. It is more of a cosmetic alternative, as their function is very similar to regular braces, but allow you to straighten your teeth without them showing.
When you come in for a consultation, our dentist will analyse your bite and the alignment of your teeth. We will then take an impression of your teeth and create customised brackets so that they will fit in your mouth exactly. The process will take some time, so you will likely have to come back for another session so that we can apply the brackets.
Once we have your custom brackets, we cement them onto the teeth and install the arch wires. Like traditional braces, they gently apply continuous pressure to shift teeth to their desired position. You will need to come back every few weeks so that we can adjust the braces as needed until your teeth are properly aligned.
The primary benefit of lingual braces is that they can straighten your teeth and correct your bite in the same manner as regular braces, but in a much more discreet manner. They are hidden behind your teeth, so when you smile or talk, they are much less noticeable.
The cost of lingual braces in London varies depending on the extent of straightening required, and how long you will need to wear them. Prices start £4500.
