Are you tired of your crooked, gapped, or crowded smile, but can’t help preferring this to the alternative mouth full of metal? Have you considered going incognito? At Shirck Orthodontics, our dental team helps patients near Newark straighten their teeth without impacting their appearance. We offer several types of cosmetic orthodontic options including Invisalign, Invisalign Teen, and clear or tooth-colored traditional braces, but for truly imperceptible smile alignment, we recommend the incognito braces Newark residents prefer — lingual braces. Call our Pataskala, New Albany, and Westerville offices to schedule a consultation with Dr. Jeffrey Shirck today.
Lingual Braces for Patients in Newark & Beyond
Lingual braces are the most discrete orthodontic option available, and Shirck Orthodontics is the lingual braces expert. What makes these braces so different? They’re the only tooth alignment option that attaches to the backs of teeth not the front. That means no one but you and the Shirck Orthodontics team ever know you’re wearing braces. Lingual braces are made to fit your mouth which minimizes any possible scratching of the tongue. Many patients worry about the way these braces will feel, but those who use lingual braces don’t actually report having any more discomfort than traditional braces wearers. Additionally, patients express concerns about financing lingual braces. The cost is actually not much higher than traditional braces, and our team is always happy to help patients develop a financial plan.
3M™ Incognito ™ Braces
The Incognito™ braces Newark prefers are 3m™ lingual braces from Dr. Shirck. With the Incognito™ brand patients get the added benefit of discrete smile correction, but if that weren’t enough of a reason to choose lingual braces, the customized 3M™ design should be. Unlike traditional, one-size-fits-all braces, Incognito™ braces are made for individual smiles. The 3M™ lab makes your lingual braces to order. Here’s how it works:
- Dr. Shirck takes impressions of your smile that are sent to the 3M™ lab.
- Experts at the lab use these impressions to create a model of your current and potential smiles.
- You and Dr. Shirck approve the proposed smile results, and 3M™ gets to work creating your customized brackets, wires, and bands.
- You’ll visit our office for application, and all you’ll ever see are beautiful results.
Additionally, the patented 3M™ self-litigating brackets and wires are available, making Incognito™ braces more comfortable and faster working than any other lingual braces. Incognito ™ Lite braces are available for patients who just want to correct their “social six” front teeth. This is an excellent option for adults who didn’t receive orthodontic treatment in their youth and would like to improve their smile with a minimized time and financial commitment.
