Tooth Coloured Braces: Making Your Dental Experience Colourful

The need for braces is now becoming widespread. However, as expected, not every orthodontic patient is equipped with the confidence to flaunt his/ her braces. Thus, patients are now given options on how they can wind up with straight teeth through the availability of tooth coloured braces and other types of braces. One no longer needs to be disturbed as to how they look during the course of the treatment.

Tooth Coloured Braces And Other Types Of Braces

There are five types of braces that one can choose from: metal braces, gold braces, ceramic braces, Invisalign, and lingual braces. Although the treatment plan is based on the assessment of the Orthodontist, patients still get the chance to voice out their opinion. So if you are planning to get braces, but would not like to look ridiculous in them, here are two of the common options that you can select from.

Invisalign Vs. Tooth Coloured Braces

Metal braces- it is the traditional form of braces. It makes use of small metal brackets which are attached on each tooth. These may sound physically unappealing, but there is an additional appliance like the elastics. The elastics are small coloured rubber bands attached to the metal bracket. Most of the time, patients can select the colour that they prefer.

Invisalign- this is a new innovation when it comes to teeth alignment. It makes use of clear plastic aligners. The duration of use is determined by assessing the extent of the orthodontic problem. However, no matter how long the treatment will be, Invisalign will remain unnoticeable. Additionally, flossing and brushing will also become a breeze since the aligners can be removed anytime.

Getting braces can be considered as a great leap. But, regardless of what type of braces you choose, the end-results are the same. You will soon sport straight teeth which allow you to have a camera-worthy smile.
