Why have a straighter smile?

In the past, adults were more accepting of changes in their teeth as they grew older, or they may have assumed that it was a natural phenomenon and couldn’t do too much about it. Many people used to think if teeth were crooked that it was too late in life to straighten their smile. Some adults were also put off wearing traditional braces as they didn’t want to show off a mouth full of metal.

These days, many adults are willing to try anything to maintain a more youthful appearance, eliminate signs of aging by obtaining straighter teeth and a more aesthetic straight smile. The fact is it’s never really been too late to straighten teeth. Modern dental procedures can help to straighten adult teeth without being too noticeable to others.

Different types of braces for straighter teeth

One of the commonly used at You First Dental here in Airdrie is Invisalign®. This is most suitable for teeth which only need to be moved a little. They have the ability in certain situations to straighten teeth that are crooked and straighten teeth without braces that are not made of visible metal parts.

Many adult orthodontic procedures don’t necessarily require excessive movement of teeth that are crooked, but just enough to give a straighter smile.

There are a variety of other modern types of braces that are suitable as orthodontics for adults. They have the convenience of smaller brackets than conventional metal brackets and there’s no necessity for bands to completely encase the teeth.

Bonded brackets, as well as being quite a lot smaller than metal brackets, can feel less painful and may seem to be more aesthetic.
