Are Invisible Braces Right for You?

Do you struggle with feeling self-conscious about your smile? If you do, then the experts at Legacy Dental Care in Huntington Beach will be able to help you become more confident in your smile with invisible braces. These are not like regular braces that use metal and bulky wires and brackets. Invisible braces are discreet and work well to perform minor corrective work on smiles.

In today’s world of advanced technology, it is possible for everyone to have a perfect smile no matter what their situation is. If you have crooked teeth, there is no longer a need for metal braces. Invisible braces are the preferred option by many adults around the United States. Instead of using metal bands or brackets and cementing them to teeth for stability and to move the teeth into position, clear plastic trays are used.

How Do They Work?

Clear braces work by applying gentle pressure on your teeth for an extended period of time. This pressure allows teeth to be moved into position gradually and with minimal discomfort. Each aligner is custom made to fit over your teeth and realign them so that you can experience relief from orthodontic issues and gain a beautiful smile. There are plenty of reasons to choose invisible braces over traditional braces, such as:

  • Easy removal: Aligners must be worn for at least 22 hours each day, but they can be removed while eating and drinking things other than water and while brushing teeth.
  • Near invisibility: Since aligners use clear plastic, they blend in with your teeth, so nobody will be able to tell you are getting corrective orthodontic treatment.
  • Less discomfort: Invisible braces use plastic aligners that are more comfortable in the mouth than traditional metal braces. This means less pain and discomfort during your treatment.

Invisible braces will be recommended by your dentist if you are in need of minor orthodontic treatment for your crooked teeth. If you are interested in learning about your options for orthodontic care and invisible braces, speak with a Legacy Dental Care professional in Huntington Beach.
