Is your smile a little less than straight? Thanks to today’s technology, achieving the smile you desire is possible. At Advanced Dental, we offer a variety of options to get your teeth in line.
Traditional Metal Braces
Metal braces are made up of brackets and wires that move the teeth into place. When you think of typical “braces,” this is probably what comes to mind. The good news is that today’s brackets are smaller and less conspicuous than the braces of the past. While these braces are definitely noticeable on the teeth, they’re also cost-effective. The colored rubber bands on the brackets can also offer a fun platform for self-expression for kids.
Ceramic braces are very similar to metal braces when it comes to the size, the shape and the ability to straighten teeth more quickly, but they’re significantly less noticeable due to their tooth-colored or clear ceramic brackets. Tooth-colored wires can even be used to make the braces less noticeable. However, if you’re opting for ceramic braces, beware: they can stain and become discolored easily.
If you’re looking for an option that’s more discreet, lingual braces can be an effective choice. Lingual braces are similar to traditional braces, but the brackets are actually placed on the inside of the teeth. While lingual braces are hidden out of sight, beware that they can be difficult to clean, take longer to adjust the teeth and feel uncomfortable initially.
Clearcorrect Invisible Braces
Clearcorrect Invisible braces are a revolutionary product that allow you to get the straightening benefits from traditional braces without the unsightly metal and glue. These invisible braces are tailored specifically to your smile’s needs, and the aligner trays are usually smooth, comfortable to wear and nearly invisible.
If you’re ready to achieve the smile you’ve always wanted, there’s a perfect fit for you. Let’s talk about your options.
