Orthodontic Options for the 30+ Crowd
If you didn’t have braces as a teenager, you might think it’s too late to straighten your misaligned teeth. After all, you can’t imagine yourself in most professional or social situations with a mouth full of metal. Perhaps you have resigned yourself to feeling self-conscious about your smile.
The good news is that with cosmetic dentistry at our Lacey, WA area practice, adults can obtain a beautiful, straight, white smile with or without orthodontics.
Invisalign Invisible Braces
Invisalign offers an excellent option to fix several orthodontic issues, and it’s ideal for adults. Using a series of clear plastic aligners rather than brackets and wires, Invisalign is practically invisible so most people will have no idea you are undergoing orthodontic treatment. The aligners are swapped out for a new set every couple of weeks that will gently move your teeth into the desired alignment.
There are other advantages to Invisalign other than esthetics. Because they are removable, brushing and flossing your teeth is easy. There are also no food restrictions with Invisalign since you can remove them for eating. Another advantage is that if you need to remove them for an important event or meeting, you can do so. Just be sure to commit to wearing them for at least 22 hours each day.
For some people, even the six to 18 months you might need for Invisalign treatment seems too long. For them, porcelain veneers might be the answer. These wafer-thin translucent shells cover your teeth to camouflage a host of dental problems including gaps, misalignment, and discoloration, giving you a perfect smile. (Hint: The beautiful smile of your favorite celebrity might just be a result of porcelain veneers!)
