Lingual braces in preparation for a Wedding!

Initial Records

This young lady was getting married and wanted her teeth straightened for her wedding and also did not want to show any braces or aligners while her teeth straightened.  Given she has a good posterior bite we were able to straighten the teeth using lingual braces on the upper and lower anterior 6 teeth only.  We also did interproximal reduction (slenderising) to create a little space to overcome the crowding of the teeth and also to reduce the risk of loss of the interdental papilla (gum between the teeth) and subsequent creation of dark triangles between the teeth.

Final Records

Treatment was finished in 8 months in time for the wedding!  Retainers are upper and lower fixed lingual wire retainers and we provided upper and lower clear plastic removable retainers that double as tooth whitening trays.
