About Cosmetic Orthodontics

smileperfecttealtopYou may be wondering what the term cosmetic orthodontics means. After all, aren’t all orthodontic treatments cosmetic in nature? True, this type of care typically results in a more beautiful, aligned smile. However, in some cases, patients require treatment that solely focuses on the way they look without a need for improving their overall bite. Feel like you need a few more details to determine whether this service is right for you? Read ahead:

Your Smile Needs Minor Improvement

Some patients have needs that require a mouthful of braces. This is often the case when someone suffers from a crossbite, overbite, underbite, severe overcrowding or spacing, or other problems that require comprehensive treatment to correct their entire bite. However, some patients simply wish to improve the alignment of their visible teeth – or those that show when they smile. These patients make wonderful candidates for cosmetic orthodontics, or orthodontic care that improves the appearance of your smile without addressing a serious malocclusion.

You Have Options

Patients who require cosmetic orthodontics often fail to realize they have a variety of options, particularly those that lie outside of the realm of traditional metal braces. For your needs, metal braces are simply unnecessary. Instead, we offer barely visible treatments that will allow you to straighten your smile without others noticing. Depending on your particular needs, we may suggest either tooth-colored brackets or clear aligner trays with the Invisalign system.
