Linguals braces or braces which are attached behind the teeth are an invisible way to straighten teeth.  They can be used to treat any type of malocclusion including "crowded teeth".

Lingual Braces are Just Braces on the Inside of Your Teeth

Lingual (invisible) braces are just just braces mounted on the inside of your teeth. They have all the same parts, produce forces the same way, and require cooperation (and Advil) just like regular braces. Although there are some cases that are better treated with conventional braces, lingual braces are appropriate for most mild to moderate orthodontic problems... including crowding. Visit an orthodontist experienced with lingual braces to see if you're a good candidate.

Lingual braces, as with traditional brace will correct and align crowded teeth. However, lingual braces will usually cost more, take more time.
