For secret straightening
If you have always yearned for a straighter smile, but don’t want to commit to wearing a highly noticeable brace for months on end, lingual braces can provide an almost invisible alternative.
Lingual braces work in a similar way to conventional fixed braces but, as they are positioned discreetly behind the teeth, there are no visible brackets or wires – making it an ideal option for self-conscious teens and adults.
Lingual braces – the Sutton Aesthetic way
We use the STB Light Lingual System to correct minor to moderate cases, such as crowding or spacing of the ‘social six’ (those teeth that show when you smile). This system works extremely quickly, delivering impressive results in just 6-16 weeks.
It has a unique design which reduces friction and uses light forces to move teeth with exceptional efficiency.
See right for an example of a case performed by Dr Afzal, who successfully straightened the patient’s teeth in just 12 weeks.
