Almost everyone has braces at some point in their lives, so why not make the best of it? Most people are afraid that braces will be a huge, ugly disturbance to their life. Luckily, you can have low-key braces that still give you a beautiful smile. Here are a few popular options for the best looking braces.
Ceramic braces are one of the least noticeable types of braces. McDonough Orthodontics offers In-Ovation braces that have transparent ceramic brackets with clear white ties that blend in beautifully and are practically invisible. These white braces are very popular among our patients with adult braces because they are more discreet, but also more delicate. Ceramic braces are especially effective on the front teeth rather than the lower teeth.
If you want completely invisible braces, we have a solution. It’s called clear aligner therapy and one of the brands of this type of treatment that is best known is INVISALIGN. Invisalign, or clear aligner therapy, is a great option for those who don’t want to deal with the brackets, wires, and bands of traditional braces.
Instead of clear braces or metal braces, a few small clear “attachments” are placed on selective teeth to give the orthodontist control and help the aligners move the teeth. Then, placed over the top of your teeth with these small clear attachments are clear retainer like trays that we call aligners.
Each aligner is slightly different and has a calculated amount of tooth movement in them that move your teeth little by little until they are straight and beautiful. These aligners are worn for 1 to 2 weeks depending on your treatment plan. And there is a series of these aligners that can include 5 to 10 to 20 aligners or more depending on how much tooth movement is needed. Learn more about why you should choose Invisalign here!
