Your smile is one of the first things to be noticed about your appearance – and this can make or break others’ first impressions about you. Are you confident about the appearance of your smile? That confidence is reflected in how you carry yourself in social settings – with self-assurance knowing you have an amazing smile. Sadly, the opposite is true as well; if you are aware that your smile looks less than stellar, your entire appearance can be negatively affected by a dip in your self-esteem.
You can turn to cosmetic dentistry to improve the appearance of your smile. These are the treatments that focus on enhancing the aesthetics of your smile, instead of functional improvements – although there are times when cosmetic dentistry treatments improve the smile’s function as well.
Are you conscious of your crooked teeth? Orthodontic treatments move teeth into a more properly aligned position, so your smile looks more attractive with straighter teeth. The dental braces are placed onto the teeth to gradually guide the teeth to better alignment, which can also bring about functional smile improvements.
If you are looking for a more discreet way to have straight teeth, invisible braces are the way to go. Adult orthodontic options such as Invisalign do not use metal braces, but instead, use plastic aligners to straighten teeth. The aligners are nearly invisible, making the orthodontic treatment a completely discreet one. Without the metal parts used in conventional dental braces, the invisible braces are also much more comfortable and convenient to use.
