There are many different ways in which you can improve the aesthetics of your smile. Over the last few decades advances in dental technology have seen the introduction of many different types of braces in Liverpool targeted at adults who have not undergone orthodontic treatment as a child or are still unhappy with the look of their smile following orthodontic treatment earlier in life.
Conventional braces made up of metal wires and brackets are still the most effective form of orthodontics however there is a reluctance among adults to opt for this treatment option when looking to improve the aesthetics of their teeth. Previously there were no other options available and therefore most people put up with the look of their smile to avoid having conventional metal braces but now there is no need to remain unhappy about the aesthetics of your teeth.
There are many different factors which affect the aesthetics of your smile and affect your overall oral health at the same time, including crookedness or wonky teeth. Some people have overcrowding of the teeth whilst others may have gaps in their teeth and these are all issues that can be treated using dental braces.
The growing popularity of invisible braces
Invisible braces have become a popular and widespread form of the orthodontic treatment across the world and there are many different forms of invisible braces available which you can find out more about with your dentist to decide which may be the more suitable option for your personal requirements and preference.
What is Invisalign and how does it work
Invisalign is a well-established and effective form of invisible braces which are used to correct the aesthetic issues of your teeth. Firstly you will need to visit your dentist to make sure that your teeth are clean and your gums are healthy and that there are no dental issues which may be exacerbated by the movement of your teeth. Once your dentist is happy then specialised three-dimensional scans of your mouth are carried out to help you visualise what your teeth can look like following successful treatment and also to precisely manufacture individually tailored aligners for your teeth. Invisalign aligners work as a series, each designed to move your teeth by up to 0.25 mm after two weeks of wear following which you then move on to the next aligner in the series until you have reached the desired results.
Braces such as Invisalign provide discretion and comfort and are very convenient which makes them suitable for modern-day lifestyles. They can be removed and replaced into the mouth as and when necessary and the subtlety of the process itself makes it a perfect choice for those who may be self-conscious about undergoing dental treatment in adulthood.
Like Invisalign there are also many other types of dental braces which can help improve the aesthetics of your smile and and promote better oral health at the same time, so speak to your dentist today to find out more about what treatment options are are suitable for you and how you can change the way you smile, comfortably and confidently!
