A common reason for adults to choose not to adjust a misaligned smile is the concern over the treatment’s appearance. People can sometimes have an image of orthodontic treatment featuring clunky metal braces or headgear that makes them put off important treatment. Adjusting a misaligned smile is important not only for the smile’s appearance, but for the health of it. Cosmetic orthodontic options can provide a discreet way to adjust the smile. Your orthodontic team in Fort Worth, Texas can help you choose the right option for you and your smile.
For mild to moderate orthodontic needs, Invisalign can be a fantastic treatment option. Clear, acrylic aligners incrementally and gently adjust the teeth into the proper alignment. The aligners are custom-designed for your smile using digital scanning technology, which provides a snug, accurate fit. The better the fit with the clear aligners makes for a more natural, mostly unnoticeable appearance.
For alignment issues that are a bit more severe, traditional metal wire braces may be required for treatment. In these situations, tooth-colored brackets can be paired with the braces to provide a more seamless appearance. The brackets are created to match the shade of the teeth to blend in with your natural smile as much as possible. While the braces will not be completely invisible, they will be less noticeable.
Why Adjustment Is Important
Not only does a misaligned smile decrease confidence in one’s appearance, it also comes with higher risks of tooth decay, damage, TMJ disorder, bruxism, and more. Putting off straightening your smile over fear of how you will look puts your smile’s health at risk. Straightening your smile with cosmetic orthodontic options can give you the best of both worlds: a healthier smile with a less intrusive treatment.
