Lingual Braces Treatment in Dubai
The popular lingual braces system are Incognito and Harmony. These are braces which are attached to the back side of your teeth. These are the old generation “invisible braces” or “hidden braces” which cannot be seen in your mouth easily, unless of course if you yawn wide!
The Incognito system consists of fully customized brackets, arch wires and bonding trays to deliver predictable treatment out comes. These cost of lingual braces in Dubai is between AED 25,000 to 30,000. The reason why these customized lingual braces are expensive is because, they are customized to the unique prescription of each patient and are manufactured by Rapid Prototyping, CAD CAM milling technology.

Today, they are not the first line of solution for patients seeking “invisible” ways of correcting their irregular or overlapping teeth as advanced braces solutions have already entered the market in a big way!
