Each year, many adults throughout the United States decide to straighten their teeth using clear braces. This is not surprising because your smile is extremely important as it affects every social interaction you have with others. Whether it is a date, a job interview, a business meeting, a presentation, or just getting together with friends and family, your smile has a big impact on your confidence level and your self-esteem. Unfortunately, your smile and your overall appearance can also significantly affect the way you are treated by others. Fortunately, advances in dental technology and orthodontics now make it possible for most adults to achieve a straighter more beautiful smile, without putting up with the time and hassle associated with traditional metal braces.
If you are an adult, there are a variety of orthodontic solutions that are available to help you achieve straighter teeth without significantly altering your appearance in the process. Invisalign® invisible braces and Six Month Smiles® are two different types of orthodontic treatments that can be used to help adults improve the appearance of their smiles. The Invisalign® system utilizes a series of custom-made, clear aligners that can be worn over your teeth to gently move them into the desired position. Six Month Smiles® uses a patented set of Lucid-Lok® clear brackets and tooth colored wires as well as low forces to move your teeth into the desired position. Both of these options offer significant advantages over traditional metal braces, however, they are not suitable for every patient.
Both the Invisalign® system and Six Month Smiles® can be used for most patients with crooked or misaligned teeth. However, if you are in need of major bite changes or have other dental health issues, you may not be a candidate for either of these options. Only a qualified dentist can determine for sure whether or not these orthodontic solutions are right for you. If you are interested in clear braces, the first step is to find a certified and experienced Invisalign® and/or Six Month Smiles® dentist in your local area. Then, you and your dentist can decide together which option is best suited to help you meet your goals while at the same time fitting your lifestyle and your budget.
