Your teeth are healthy and strong. They are beautiful, but they are not as beautiful as they could be. You have orthodontic concerns that cannot be corrected by your regular dentist. A trip to the orthodontist is in order. You know that braces are the best way to improve your smile, but you don’t want the whole world to know you are undergoing treatment. Thankfully, traditional metal braces aren’t the only treatment option. Invisible braces could be the right alternative for you to help you get an unforgettable smile.
How Do Invisible Braces Work?
Invisible braces offer you another option beside traditional braces with metal brackets and wires. You have a few options if you choose to go with invisible braces. You can opt for clear aligners. These aligners are customized to fit your mouth with help from medical imagery. They slide right over your teeth and have a snug fit. Others will hardly notice they are there. The aligners will gradually begin to shift your teeth into the correct position. You have to wear them every day for at least 22 hours to have the best results, but you can take them out while you eat.
Invisible aligners offer you more flexibility than other methods of orthodontic treatment. However, they are not for everyone. Only our orthodontist will be able to determine if you are a good candidate for this treatment alternative. If our orthodontist tells you that you need to choose braces over aligners, there are clear brackets now that are ceramic. You can also request wires that match the color of your teeth. In the end, it will look like you are wearing invisible braces.
