Nowadays, there’s a lot of emphasis placed on having the perfect smile. Everyone is striving for straight, white teeth. Unfortunately, not everyone is blessed with the smile of their dreams. This is why there has been an increasing amount of people opting to have braces, including adults. With more adults choosing to have braces fitted, they are becoming a lot more normal and common. However, not all adults want to have braces that are clearly visible. This is where tooth coloured braces come in. Luckily for you, at Weybridge Dental Practice, our team of dental experts are capable of fitting braces that will really make a difference.
What Are Tooth Coloured Braces?
As an adult, there’s a high chance that you won’t want your braces on show. We understand this and you’re definitely not alone. This is why tooth coloured braces are becoming more and more popular. These braces are fixed using brackets and wires, and they are attached to each individual tooth; there are ceramic, plastic and metal options available. These tooth coloured braces are not deemed to be ‘invisible’ in the same way that other styles are, but they have been designed to be discreet. So, though they work in the same way as other braces, they definitely have an aesthetic advantage.
How Do Tooth Coloured Braces Work?
Tooth coloured braces work in the same way as other braces, except they are clear and very hard to see. This makes them a popular choice for adults and those who are concerned about how their braces look cosmetically. There is a range of tooth coloured braces available, including those which have been designed to cut down on the number of times you’ll have to visit the dentist.
Why Do People Choose Tooth Coloured Braces?
The main reason that people choose tooth coloured braces is that they are extremely discreet and less unsightly than many other types of braces. If you’re not able to opt for the invisible style of brace and do not want a brace that’s metal, a tooth coloured brace is a good alternative.
Tooth coloured braces are extremely popular with adults, as they are not as obvious as the metal varieties. A lot of older people don’t want to show off their brace in the same way that a younger person may want to, especially if they are shy or lacking in self-esteem. However, this isn’t a problem with tooth coloured braces. One of the great things about tooth coloured braces is that they do not stain; they continue to look natural for a long time. This means the brace will look great until all teeth are aligned.
At Weybridge Dental Practice, we take great pride in helping our patients get the smile they deserve. Whether it’s a minor alignment issue or you want straight teeth to be proud of, we’re on hand to help.
