Lingual braces


Lingual braces are applied behind the teeth, unlike metal and ceramic braces which are applied to the front of the teeth. From an aesthetic standpoint, lingual orthodontics provides the best option for comprehensive treatment.


After an initial diagnosis and a thorough review, your Orthodontist can determine whether lingual Braces right for you. To proceed with your invisible orthodontic treatment, a set of records will be taken and sent to the laboratory. After few weeks of production, your digitally customized solution is sent to CosmeSurge for THE initial bonding appointment.


The process of creating your new smile begins with a highly accurate 3D image of your teeth. Using CAD/CAM technologies, the laboratory generates a digitally customized treatment simulation of your desired smile as well as a customized solution engineered to seamlessly form to the shape and contour of each tooth. Preformed arch wires are produced – all resulting in the highest levels of orthodontic precision and accuracy in tooth correction.


The bonding appointment begins with a preparation of the tooth surface. Unlike traditional bonding where braces are attached to the teeth one at a time, Lingual Braces use an advanced tray system for delivering the entire set of braces all at once.


During your treatment, you will need to visit CosmeSurge periodically to check on your progress and to change the arch wires. After each visit your teeth can become sensitive, which is a result of the new arch wire that is gently moving your teeth toward their ideal position. This discomfort will disappear after a few days. If you notice anything unusual during treatment or if your braces feel like they might have come loose, contact your orthodontist immediately.


While your teeth are straight on the day that your braces are removed, they can move out of alignment if they are not properly retained in the months and years ahead. Your orthodontist has a solution for keeping your smile looking perfect for the rest of your life. Protect your investment in your new smile by following your orthodontist’s retention program and visit your dentist regularly for check-ups.
