What are Incognito braces?
When it comes to discreet (hence the name 'incognito') teeth straightening, lingual braces are one of the best hidden solutions modern dentistry has to offer.
With lingual braces, your teeth are quite literally straightened behind the scenes - meaning you can undergo treatment without anyone being able to see your brace.
The gold alloy brackets are bonded to the tongue side of each tooth and, along with the archwires, are custom-made to your teeth to help you achieve the exact results you’re looking for.
Incognito lingual braces are now considered by dentists to be one of the most effective and discreet ways to straighten teeth, with the smaller brackets making them extremely comfortable to wear once you have gotten used to them.
Incognito braces cost in London
Due to the massive number of dentists in London offering a variety of these treatments it is hard to give an accurate price for Incognito lingual braces. However, you can expect to pay anywhere between £800 and £10,000 depending on the complexity of the case.

Top quality lingual braces treatments
At our state-of-the art North London practice, we offer the following Incognito lingual treatments:
Incognito™ lingual braces
These brackets are custom made from gold. The braces are fitted behind your teeth to stay out of sight. They are made using state-of-the-art technology to make sure they fit your teeth perfectly to deliver optimum comfort and teeth straightening.
The STb™ Light Lingual System
Similar to the Incognito technology, the STB Light is the more cost-effective alternative to traditional gold lingual braces. It is, however, still very effective at straightening teeth whilst ensuring a great level of comfort throughout the treatment.
Forestadent® 2D Lingual Brackets
With the Forestadent design, the brackets placed on the back of the teeth are much flatter than any other kind of lingual braces. With a thickness of between just 1.3 and 1.65mm and soft, smooth edges on each bracket, Forestadent is the number one brace for patient comfort.
Why choose lingual braces with Portner Pittack?
Of course, the main advantage of the lingual braces is their unrivalled level of discreetness. Whilst the actual brackets and wires are not invisible, the way we place them in your mouth makes them undetectable.
With the fixed braces behind the teeth, it will be nearly impossible for anyone to catch a glimpse of them when you speak or smile.
Lingual braces offer other significant advantages:
- the appearance of your teeth is fully natural,
- you don’t need to remove them at certain times of day, or
- you don’t need to remove them for eating or sport
Your lingual braces are bonded to the back of your teeth until your treatment is complete, meaning you can go about your day without needing to worry.
How lingual braces help
They can be used to treat a wide variety of orthodontic issues, including severely overcrowded teeth and poor spacing, as well as both underbites and overbites. Using brackets made especially for your teeth, we’re able to control even the slightest movements of each tooth.
Smoking or eating and drinking certain things whilst wearing traditional braces can cause irregular staining on your teeth, which is highly visible once the brackets are removed; leaving behind small white squares on each tooth. Decalcification is also a common result of poor oral hygiene during teeth straightening treatment, which can also leave behind white spots.
If either of these issues were to happen during your treatment with lingual braces, any irregular marks would be hidden behind your teeth – leaving your smile perfectly straight and evenly coloured.
