It can be hard to feel comfortable in your own skin when you’re uncomfortable with your smile. Unfortunately, many people suffer from misaligned teeth. Crowding, widely spaced teeth, underbites, overbites, and crossbites can all affect the appearance of your smile. Another thing that they have in common is that they can all be fixed with clear braces. At Dental Arts of Plymouth in Plymouth, NH, we want to provide you with the best option for your dental issue.
Clear braces are a common alternative to traditional metal braces that are less noticeable and blend in with teeth more. Clear braces are a great choice for individuals who want to get braces, but don’t want them to be obvious. Clear braces are also a great option for those who are not good candidates for Invisalign, which is only meant for simple realignments. Clear braces can be made of porcelain, which is designed to match the shade of surrounding teeth or a translucent material similar to plastic. There are pros and cons to each option. You can talk with our dentist about which option is best for you.
Clear braces are a great aesthetic choice for adults who are interested in getting braces. The thought of having a mouth full of metal in adulthood may seem unappealing to most. This may lead these individuals to never getting their teeth properly aligned. Clear braces are a good solution to this problem. Another benefit is as simple as having straighter teeth. While this will look great cosmetically, straight teeth can also help prevent bacteria and plaque from building up better than misaligned teeth. This will protect you from developing dental decay and gum disease. In addition to this, misaligned teeth will produce more wear and tear. You can think about your teeth like they are moving gears in your mouth. If one gear is not placed properly, it will grind on other gears and cause damage.
If you are interested in getting your teeth aligned but don’t want the burden of full metal braces, give us a call to schedule a consultation.
