We use the gauge-unfixing (GU) formalism framework in a two-dimensional noncommutative chiral bosons (NCCB) model to disclose new hidden symmetries. That amounts to converting a second-class system to a first-class one without adding any extra degrees of freedom in phase space. The NCCB model has two second-class constraints —one of them turns out as a gauge symmetry generator while the other one, considered as a gauge-fixing condition, is disregarded in the converted gauge-invariant system. We show that it is possible to apply a conversion technique based on the GU formalism direct to the second-class variables present in the NCCB model, constructing deformed gauge-invariant GU variables, a procedure which we name here as modified GU formalism. For the canonical analysis in noncommutative phase space, we compute the deformed Dirac brackets between all original phase space variables. We obtain two different gauge-invariant versions for the NCCB system and, in each case, a GU Hamiltonian is derived satisfying a corresponding first-class algebra. Finally, the phase space partition function is presented for each case allowing for a consistent functional quantization for the obtained gauge-invariant NCCB.
