How To Achieve Discreet Teeth Straightening As An Adult

Gone are the days when teeth straightening was just for teenagers – thanks to the rise in celebrities looking for a more perfect smile, there are more and more adults looking for suitable teeth straightening methods which are fast working and discreet. The rise in orthodontic developments means there are a variety of very discreet teeth straightening treatments which are available and affordable for the average person, let’s take a look at Invisalign, one of the leading brands.


What are the options for adults who want straighter teeth?

Adults can wear visible braces, similar to those that teens wear. However, many people do not want to do this because they do not like the way that the braces look in their mouths. Luckily, there is another option, described below.


Invisible teeth straightening

Invisible teeth straightening

Invisalign is the name for clear braces that are practically invisible. From far away, no one will be able to tell that you are wearing braces, and when they are talking to you close up, all that they will be able to see are discreet, transparent aligners which fit neatly over your upper and lower teeth.


The Invisalign treatment process

You will go through a series of aligners, each of which will move your teeth closer to their final position. The time for which you need to undergo this treatment will vary depending on how much you want your teeth to change their positions. In addition, once you have finished using the transparent aligners, you can also opt for a clear retainer to keep your straightened teeth in place and prevent them from regressing back to their original positions (which can happen with all braces after a period of some years).


Not just for adults

Children and teenagers can use this teeth straightening option too as well - this teeth straightening option is just not for adults. Whilst it is generally pricier than visible braces, invisible straightening is valued for the discretion that it offers.


The quest for straighter teeth does not stop in childhood

People most often associate braces with teenagers. But that does not mean that you should abandon your hopes for perfectly straight teeth just because you have got older. There are plenty of great teeth straightening options for adults.
