If you want to straighten your crooked teeth with orthodontic treatment, then you are in luck, because in today’s orthodontic world there are more straightening options than ever before. To straighten your crooked teeth with orthodontic treatment, you have the option of using regular old metal braces, though if you are older than middle school age, you probably have no desire to be referred to as “metal mouth.” Instead, many orthodontists now offer “invisible” braces in which no one but you will be able to tell that you are having any kind of orthodontic work done.
These invisible braces are clear trays that are molded from your teeth that snap over your teeth and correct your smile in similar ways to braces. After a few weeks, a different tray is used to fit your already changed mouth. For this reason, invisible braces are often much more effective than traditional braces, that can sometimes take years to show any true progress.
However, invisible braces are much more expensive and require the wearer to be consistent in their wearing of them. Unlike regular braces that can not be removed by the wearer, invisible braces can be removed. Thus, make sure that you are willing to make the commitment to your invisible braces before you start paying the hefty price for them. And remember, there is no price tag on the confidence that comes with having a beautiful smile.
