Cosmetic Orthodontics Options for Adults

Cosmetic Orthodontics Options for Adults
Posted on 10/05/2021

Today, there are more orthodontic treatment options than ever before! Thanks to technology, advancements have been made to make braces more comfortable and convenient. However, it can be difficult for anyone to decide what type of treatment they want. At Panoramic Dental, our practitioners can guide you on what is best for you, and make a customized treatment plan for you. For many, they look towards cosmetic treatment to fix and straighten their teeth to boost their self-confidence. If you’re thinking of getting cosmetic orthodontic treatment, here is what is on the market right now.

  • Traditional Metal Braces- The most common type of braces. These include a metal bracket and wire. Traditional braces are mostly recommended for adults who have more severe teeth and jaw misalignment. They are visible, so they are not the most ideal option for adults who want to have discreet treatment.
  • Ceramic Braces- These are like traditional metal braces, but use ceramic (white/ivory-colored) brackets instead of metal. Are a little bit more discreet because they match the color of your teeth. This can be a great option for those who want traditional braces with a more invisible look.
  • Invisalign- A highly popular option in the market for adults. Invisalign is a clear aligner made out of plastic trays that snaps on top of your teeth. Unlike traditional or ceramic braces, they don’t include brackets and wires, so it is a more comfortable option. Can also be a more convenient option because you don’t have to visit the office as much; you’ll get a kit of trays that you change every 2 weeks, so no tightening and adjustment visits. You also can take the aligners off throughout the day to eat, drink, and brush/floss. So no food restrictions!
  • Lingual Braces- Fairly a new option in the market right now. These braces are like traditional metal braces, but are put behind your teeth. This can be a great option if you want a discreet option, but also want the same effect as traditional braces.
