Braces Options for Adults
Braces – they aren’t just for kids, anymore! It’s never too late to start enjoying the benefits of a straighter smile. Why bother straightening your teeth at this point?
In reality, orthodontic treatment can greatly improve your oral health and quality of life by giving you:
- Straighter teeth that are easier to keep clean
- Decreasing the risk of developing cavities and gum disease
- Preventing stain buildup in overlapped teeth
- Uneven wear due to crooked teeth
- Boosting your self-confidence
- A better first-impression
Adult Braces in Carmichael, CA
The good news is that classic braces work just as well for adults as they do for our younger patients. Braces are the most thorough solution to a variety of orthodontic complications.
If you are concerned about metal brackets and wires looking a little immature and distracting on your smile, don’t worry! There are ways to work around this. At Marconi Dental Group, you have additional options. Tooth-colored or clear brackets will make your braces look barely-there. In talking with others face-to-face, they may not even notice your braces if you don’t mention them.
Still not good enough? Depending on your unique needs, the brackets and wire could even be mounted on the inside of your teeth instead of on the front.
A Solution in Six Months
Need a fast orthodontic fix? Six Month Smiles could be the right choice. This short-term cosmetic orthodontic procedure is aided by specialized computer programming to move only a few key teeth. It works quickly to place them in the proper position. This is ideal for tweaking specific teeth that show in your “smile zone.”
Six Month Smiles can also be used with clear or tooth-colored brackets for low-visibility on your teeth. As the name implies, this system works within an average of six months. This makes it ideal for sprucing up your smile just in time for a special event planned within the next year.
The Zero-Braces Option
Invisalign has gained in popularity among those who’ve had braces before but let their teeth shift out of place, or adults and teens who need mild to moderate tooth alignment correction. This program uses a series of clear, graduated, customized trays that are conveniently removable.
- Easy cleaning
- Ortho-appliance-free photos
- All the foods you love
The Invisalign option is great if you feel that brackets aren’t for you.
A Stellar Smile for Life
Whichever orthodontic option you choose, you will probably need to continue wearing a retainer for some time afterwards. This will prevent all of your hard work from reversing itself. You may want to treat yourself to some teeth whitening or veneers after having your teeth straightened to complete a mini smile makeover.
