Active Lingual Bond
If you want a straighter smile but do not want to wear metal braces, or if you just don't want the responsibility of having to manage removable appliances like retainers or clear aligners, or if you've had treatment in the past and want to make minor corrections to your smile, the Active Lingual Bond Technique might be for you.
How does Active Lingual Bond work?
Used to straighten anterior teeth that demonstrate mild to moderate crowding, there are many advantages to orthodontic treatment with the Active Lingual Bond Technique.
Small flexible wires are bonded directly to the back surfaces of misaligned teeth as an alternative to traditional braces or clear removable aligners, and are placed in a position that activates the wire to help guide teeth into their proper alignment.
Just like braces and clear aligners, these wires use gradual force to control tooth movement, but without any metal wires or brackets. Since they are placed behind the teeth they are virtually invisible.
Is Active Lingual Bond Right For Me?
The best way to find out if active lingual bond is the right option for you is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Covino. It's your first step toward achieving the beautiful smile you've always wanted!
