Choosing Braces That Are Right For You
Adults often opt for less noticeable braces, such as clear aligners or ceramic braces, in order to maintain a more professional appearance. Invisalign braces allow adults to straighten their teeth in a nearly undetectable manner. These clear aligners are removable, so you can take them out to eat or brush your teeth. Ceramic braces remain on your teeth during the treatment period, but since they are tooth-colored, they are less noticeable than metal braces.
You can also invest in braces that go on the back of your teeth, known as a lingual appliance. Or you may simply opt for traditional metal braces that are more noticeable but promise excellent results. Your orthodontist will discuss your options and help you make the choice that is best for your particular situation.
