Are you unhappy with your smile? Have you considered braces?
Braces used to be reserved for kids to straighten crooked teeth, but now many more adults are seeking braces and alternatives like Invisalign to solve their tooth issues. If you’re unhappy with your smile and you’re thinking about braces, it’s a good idea to weigh the pros and cons.
Braces traditionally involve an arrangement of brackets and wires that are slowly tightened over time to push teeth into a proper position. Many people are put off by braces because they’re embarrassed to be seen with them, but Invisalign takes care of that issue.
Another concern is pain, and it’s true the pressure can be uncomfortable, especially when chewing. It also generally takes a couple years to move the teeth where they need to go.
Braces generally don’t cost as much as other options like porcelain veneers, but it’s still something to consider. The self confidence you feel once your smile is straight might be worth the effort, and the price. Talk to your dentist to decide what’s right for you!
