Do you want to straighten your teeth, fix your bite, or close gaps, but hate the idea of wearing metal? Most of us weren’t born with a Hollywood smile, but everyone deserves one. Our dentists in Everett WA understand that beautifully aligned teeth not only improve your appearance but also enhance the function of your mouth, your health, and your overall quality of life.
Technology has improved in recent years and brought with it many alternatives to traditional metal braces, opening the door to a variety of treatment options.
Ceramic Braces: Ceramic braces are one alternative to metal braces. While they’re typically not recommended for severe cases, they can be a beautiful alternative. High quality ceramic braces are strong and can be less painful because they don’t irritate the gums. They offer high esthetic options for the right candidates and virtually disappear in the mouth.
Porcelain Veneers: A veneer is a thin ceramic covering that is bonded to the front of a tooth. It doesn’t change the alignment of the tooth but makes it appear as if you have. It is ideal for covering just a few teeth that are slightly misshapen or covering small gaps. Veneers give you the option of an attractive smile without a huge investment of time.
Invisalign®: Invisalign® straightens your teeth using a custom-made series of aligners created just for you. These aligners are made of a smooth, comfortable, and virtually invisible plastic that you wear over your natural teeth. Invisalign® is rising in popularity and becoming the first choice for both professionals and patients due to its convenience and comfort.
Don’t let your fear or apprehension of conventional metal braces stop you from getting that beautiful, healthy smile you have always dreamed of having. Schedule a consultation today, and we’ll go over all available options so you can make a decision that works for you and your lifestyle.
