What Are Cosmetic Orthodontics?
Many adults have misaligned teeth, but are hesitant to get braces because they are embarrassed, feel too old or are worried about the time commitment and pain level.
Cosmetic orthodontics is a type of dental braces worn for cosmetic reasons: to straighten your teeth, improve your smile, improve your ability to chew and speak more clearly. Utilizing the Invisalign clear aligner system, your transformation process is designed to be as discrete as possible.
Types of Cosmetic Orthodontics
We utilize Invisalign® – the most advanced clear aligner system in the world. Invisalign is committed to continuous innovation, with 20 years of clinical research and more than 700 patents. No other clear aligner is backed by the data and experience of 4 million cases.
These “invisible” braces provide effective orthodontic correction while remaining practically impossible to see. Treatment consists of a series of clear plastic aligners that are custom created for each patient. The aligners may be more comfortable than traditional braces and are removed during eating.
When Are Cosmetic Orthodontics a Good Option?
If you are unhappy with your smile or suffer from dental issues related to misaligned teeth, cosmetic orthodontics are probably a good solution for you. Braces can help fix:
• Spacing problems/gaps
• Overbites, underbites, crossbites and open bites
• Protrusion of teeth
