If you know you need braces, have you thought about clear braces as an option?
One could easily be deterred from committing to a teeth-straightening protocol between the cost of treatments and the noticeable metal brackets and wires. But now that’s all changed.
Making the decision to straighten your teeth is an investment into a beautiful and professional looking smile for the rest of your life. In many respects it was well worth a bit of suffering to end up with straight teeth. But now, with many more options available, you really don’t have to suffer with metal brackets affecting your smile.
Many of today’s braces are designed to provide patients with more attractive, less evident alternatives to metal braces. These braces provide the same benefits as metal braces, except they’re clear! They are made of clear materials, making them less visible than metal braces, while also being strong and resistant to staining.
A Perfect Smile Orthodontics in McAllen, TX offers a Free Braces Consultation to help you understand which braces option is right for you.
Advantages to Clear Braces
Clear braces are much less noticeable than traditional metal braces. They offer a fantastic aesthetic alternative for patients seeking options other than traditional metal braces.
Many patients who choose ceramic braces feel more confident about their orthodontic treatment, especially knowing that people are focusing on their smiles rather than their braces.
For young adults, clear braces offer the discipline of traditional braces, without the embarrassment or self-esteem issues that metal braces can sometimes result in.
Clear braces can help give you the confidence to excel in school, work and personal life.
For those whose professions involve public speaking or interaction with people, clear braces can be a good option to straighten your teeth in a way that is barely noticeable to others if at all. And they can give you clearer speech for interviews, public speaking, etc. than with clear aligners.
At A Perfect Smile Orthodontics, we can provide answers to your questions and extra information explaining the benefits of each treatment. If you would like to learn more about clear braces and all of the options available to you, please contact our practice and schedule an appointment today.
What is the Difference Between Clear Braces and Clear Aligners?
Clear braces are the same as traditional metal braces except they are clear! These braces are a less noticeable alternative to traditional metal braces and provide patients with an equally effective treatment.
Clear aligners are different from clear braces. These aligners are made out of clear plastic and are designed to fit into your teeth, similar to a mouthguard. Every couple of weeks you start using a new aligner that moves your teeth a little bit more than the previous set. Over time, your teeth are gradually moved into correct alignment.
As with any orthodontic treatment, it is important to choose the right option for your needs and lifestyle. Clear braces are a great alternative to traditional metal braces and your orthodontist will help you determine whether they are the right treatment for you.
Smile with Confidence
Our smiles are a very important part of our identity and how we are perceived by others around us. A recent broad survey really made this point clear. It showed that 72% of the respondents agreed that people of all ages with healthy straight teeth are typically treated better in social situations than those with noticeably crooked teeth. It also found that crooked teeth leave a negative first impression more often than not.
With so much technology available today, it’s easier than ever to improve your smile and experience the difference that a beautiful smile can make in your life.
Compared to some of the other ‘extreme’ cosmetic procedures available today, improving your smile is one of the most valuable investments you can make to improve your overall appearance for a lifetime.
If you want straighter teeth but are concerned about how you’ll look with braces, ask us about clear braces. They’re not only discreet, they’re virtually invisible.
Clear Braces Give Straight Teeth For Long-term Health
A beautiful smile is not only aesthetic, it also promotes good health. Straight and evenly spaced teeth are easier to keep clean, providing better oral health. Properly aligned teeth chew more efficiently, which can aid in digestion.
Ideally aligned teeth create a more perfect bite, which can reduce stress, headaches, and strain on your supporting bone and tissue.
According to the American Association of Orthodontists, crooked and crowded teeth are hard to clean and maintain. This may contribute to conditions that cause not only tooth decay but also eventual gum disease and tooth loss.
When left untreated, many orthodontic problems become worse, contributing to abnormal wear of tooth surfaces, inefficient chewing function, excessive stress on gum tissue and the bone that supports the teeth, or misalignment of the jaw joints, which can result in chronic headaches or pain in the face or neck. Treatment by a specialist to correct the original problem is often less costly than the additional dental care required to treat more serious problems that can develop in later years.
