What Choices Do Adults Have?
Traditional metal braces remain the most popular type of braces for a reason: they work efficiently and are budget friendly. Today’s metal braces are sleeker, smaller and more comfortable than metal braces from your teenage years. If you have a severe malocclusion, bite issue, or never had braces before, metal braces can get you the best results.
With braces a bracket is placed on the front of each tooth, connected together by a metal wire. If you want to add some color to your smile, you can change out the elastic bands for a new color at each orthodontic visit, every four to six weeks. Most adults wear metal braces a minimum of 18 months. Remember, you will need to wear a retainer once the braces are removed to keep that perfect smile.
Ceramic Clear Braces
Ceramic braces work similarly to traditional metal braces in achieving fantastic results. Instead of metal brackets, the orthodontist places a clear ceramic bracket on each tooth, connected by a metal wire. Since the brackets are clear, they blend in with the color of your natural teeth, making them basically transparent. Most people will not even notice your braces.
As we've grown with age so has technology, unlike clear braces of the past these brackets resist staining so they'll stay white. Don’t worry, you don’t have to give up your coffee or wine anymore. Feel great about yourself now, it all starts with a smile.
