Incognito™ – Invisible Braces
Serving Portland, Oregon and the surrounding areas
Many people who need braces put off getting them because they don’t like the look of metal on their teeth, or worry about what other people might say. However, with Incognito™, no one will be able to see them. Incognito, or invisible braces, are unique because they are the only invisible fixed braces on the market today. While traditional braces are fitted on the front of your teeth, Incognito are fitted to the back. They are custom-made to fit your teeth using state-of-the-art technology.
The first thing Dr. Miller will do is to take an impression of your teeth. This impression will be sent to an in house lab where a model is created to make the custom wires and brackets for your Incognito. It will take up to six weeks for you to be fitted with the Incognito.
To customize your braces, CAD/CAM and prototyping technologies are used. iBrace brackets are created using the prototyping technology and then fabricated using a durable gold alloy. Robotic technology helps to bend a set of designed precision wires.
Six weeks after impressions of your teeth are taken, you will return to Dr. Miller. He will then prepare and fit your teeth with the Incognito. You will have periodic follow-up appointments to be monitored for progress.
