You can only hold a smile for so long, after that it’s just teeth. – Chuck Palahniuk, Invisible Monsters

teeth

Although lips contribute to a person’s smile, it’s mostly about their teeth. Attractive, healthy teeth form a lovely and lasting smile that others will remember. Unfortunately, teeth that are chipped, protruding, or missing detract from a lovely smile. With a professional evaluation, an orthodontist may be able to prescribe treatment that will maximize your smile and make you feel and look beautiful.

What its like to wear braces

Getting fitted for braces is the most common treatment for misaligned teeth. Wires and brackets are typically worn for several months with periodic adjustments by the orthodontic specialist. When the hardware is removed, teeth are beautifully aligned and proportionate to give patients a renewed sense of confidence and well-being.

Wires and brackets come in a variety of designs and colors. A popular type is Invisalign, which is nearly invisible to other people. They allow the wearer to speak and eat naturally without drawing undue notice to their dental treatment. Although this type may need extra care to retain durability, many professionals opt for this approach to treatment.

Different from Invisalign are wiring options that maximize visibility as a fashion statement. Wires can be covered in 24K gold plating for a flashy look. Neon colors are also available for those who want to include braces as part of their overall fashion look. This is often the case with teens who enjoy playing up their individuality. Some types are hardier than others, which can be discussed between parent and orthodontist during the evaluation.
