Not everyone is born with a perfect set of teeth; however, people with misaligned teeth can always seek the help of an orthodontist. An orthodontist is a trained dentist who specializes in dental procedures used to straighten teeth and correct misalignment. Although, getting braces is a permanent fix to the problem of misaligned teeth, many people are afraid of it for the affect it may have on their appearance.
There is good news for those wanting to straighten their teeth without facing the ordeal of greeting people with a metallic smile, courtesy metal braces. Invisible braces have come as a blessing, now you don’t have to worry about hiding your teeth every time you smile or laugh.
Unlike metal braces, the lips aren’t pushed out and one does not have to worry about cutting the lips and the mouth. Your braces will never come in the way of having other dental cosmetic procedures such as teeth whitening done. And the obvious one, you can be assured of looking your best even with the braces still put. With invisible braces one does not have to worry about people noticing the sudden change in appearance. They are made up of ceramic or plastic and are suitable for those who do not wish to make their braces the talk of the town. Even if you smile and laugh, people will not be able to notice the change.
The two most common invisible options for aligning teeth are Invisalign and Incognito.
Invisalign technology uses a 3 dimensional model to make transparent and removable braces. A customized set of aligners are created by the orthodontist depending on the severity of misalignment. The aligners will shift the teeth into place in a period of time that may range from months to a few years.
Incognito braces are placed behind the teeth and are will not be visible to anyone, except you and your dentist of course. The brackets are made from an alloy of gold with a customised arch that fits the brackets.
Both the technologies have been proven effective in straightening teeth and correcting any misalignment. It is advisable to consult your orthodontist regarding what would work best for you.
