Here is How Braces Behind Your Teeth Works:

Digitally Customized Technology

A highly sophisticated 3D image of your teeth starts this incredible process. Each tooth is then digitally simulated and straightened according to Dr. Tisseronts’ treatment plan customized especially for you. Robotically bent wires as well as powerful CAD/CAM technology ensure the highest level of orthodontic precision for each patient.

Custom Treatment

Each component of your incognito lingual braces is uniquely customized to achieve your perfect smile quickly and efficiently. No other lingual (behind the teeth) system offers this level of accuracy and customization. The benefits again over traditional treatment include:

  • Invisible! No one will know you are on your way to a perfect smile!! (This is a perfect system for Middle School age through adulthood!)
  • Faster treatment time!
  • Shorter appointments!
Types of Lingual Braces

Types of Lingual Braces

Brius Lingual Braces

Brius lingual braces are a type of orthodontic treatment that, like traditional braces, help to straighten teeth and correct dental issues. What sets Brius lingual braces apart is that they are attached to the back (lingual side) of the teeth instead of the front, making them less visible and more discreet

While most lingual braces have a wire that connects the brackets, Brius braces feature separate brackets that move independently. The treatment works by applying gentle yet continuous pressure on the teeth, causing them to shift into the proper position over time. The duration of the treatment can vary between 18-36 months, depending on the severity of a patient’s dental issues, such as overcrowding or bite problems.

In summary, Brius lingual braces offer a less noticeable alternative to traditional braces, with the added benefit of independent bracket movement for more precise tooth alignment.


Brava Lingual Braces

Brava™ Lingual Braces are a type of orthodontic treatment that provides a more discreet alternative to traditional braces. Just like lingual braces, Brava™ Lingual Braces are attached to the back (lingual side) of the teeth instead of the front, making them virtually invisible when you smile or talk​.​

Brava™ Lingual Braces, offered by Brius® Technologies, are designed to provide patients with the results they want while requiring less time and hassle than other orthodontic options. They work similarly to conventional braces, using brackets and wires to apply gentle yet continuous pressure on the teeth, guiding them into the desired position.


3M Incognito Braces

The smooth, low-profile braces follow the contours of your teeth for maximum comfort and minimal interference with your speech. Unlike clear aligners, the Incognito System by 3M is always in and always working. That means you don’t have to worry about removing anything when you eat or drink. The Incognito System is 100% customized to the unique shape of your teeth and for your individual treatment needs. The custom brackets and robotically bent wires work together to efficiently straighten your teeth with minimal discomfort.

Ormco Alias Lingual Straightwire Braces

Developed through collaboration with world-renowned lingual leaders, Drs. Kyoto Takemoto and Giuseppe Scuzzo, Alias offers an aesthetic alternative to labial brackets or aligners, but with the efficiency of straight-wire mechanics. Alias’ unique square slot allows for optimized movement and the greater interbracket distances make the aligning stage easier.

Harmony Braces

Harmony braces are an invisible orthodontic solution that is digitally customized for each Tisseront patient. Harmony patients benefit from self-ligating technology, where a metal gate holds your archwire in place instead of an elastic O-ring, which can loosen over the course of your treatment.

InBrace Braces

InBrace is teeth straightening on autopilot with a personalized Smartwire™ hidden behind your teeth that gently perfects your smile. Hidden behind your teeth, our revolutionary InBrace Smartwire effortlessly aligns your teeth according to your personalized treatment plan.

SureSmile Orametrix Software

Dr. Tisseront serves on the advisory board for the SureSmile Orametrix Lingual department and is one of the biggest users in the U.S. SureSmile Orametrix is a form of lingual treatment that generates custom wires to move the teeth in the right direction. SureSmile can be used with any lingual braces excluding Harmony, Incognito, and InBrace.

How Much Do Lingual Braces Cost? 

About 40% more than traditional braces.

Lingual Braces vs Regular Braces 

Just like traditional braces, lingual braces have no limitations in tooth movement and in Dr. Tisseront’s office will give you a gorgeous smile. The difference is lingual braces are placed behind your teeth. Nobody will know you are wearing braces so they are perfect for older teens, working professionals, and anyone else who doesn’t want to show braces.

Comfortably Adapts to Your Teeth

Lingual braces are engineered to be small and smooth, which helps you adapt quickly and comfortably to your Reston orthodontic treatment.

Dr. Tisseront is the leading expert in lingual braces (customized braces placed behind your teeth) in the country, including from manufacturers like SureSmile, Harmony, Incognito, InBrace, and Brius.
