When you think of gold, you probably think of jewellery, medals and maybe Spandau Ballet. Gold braces might not instantly come to mind. But don’t make the mistake of thinking that stainless steel is your only option when it comes to straightening your teeth.
The Incognito brace features sparkling gold alloy brackets that are custom made just for you. And if you’re wondering why you haven’t seen them before, it’s for a very good reason – they are fitted behind your teeth.
You might be wondering if there’s much point to gold braces if they’re hidden from sight, but the beauty of Incognito braces is more than just skin deep. Unlike traditional metal braces, gold braces are ideal for anyone with a nickel allergy and won’t irritate the inside of your mouth.
Going for gold
Gold braces are a great talking point, and even though you’ve chosen a brace that’s fitted behind your teeth, you might find yourself wanting to show it off to friends and family. Plus, if someone does catch a glimpse of your brace while you’re laughing or talking, gold will blend in more discreetly with your teeth than silver alternatives.
Gold in dentistry
Gold has its own unique properties, which make it perfect for dentistry. In fact, gold is one of the oldest filling materials and today it’s used to make hardwearing crowns. Gold is not very reactive and also non toxic – if you’re feeling decadent you can even enjoy it in food and drink.
Importantly, as well as looking great, Incognito braces are also brilliant at moving teeth. 3M Unitek, the people behind Incognito use the latest computer technology to custom make your brace, helping to ensure the perfect fit, maximum comfort and precise results.
