Are you looking into your orthodontic cosmetic treatment options because you want to improve the way your smile looks? The more you understand about the cosmetic dentistry treatments available nowadays, the better able you will be when it comes to choosing the one or more that are going to work for you. Everyone is different and therefore requires their own special dental plan for improving their smile. This means you can have the smile you want to have as now, there are such a variety of cosmetic treatment options available that you really can design your own smile.

Why straight teeth support a healthy mouth

While straight teeth do indeed make for a nice looking smile, they also support a healthy mouth. When someone’s teeth are not straight, it is much more difficult to properly clean them. When the teeth are not properly cleaned it is more likely to lead to a number of oral problems, with dental decay and cavities being one of the most common issues.

Popular cosmetic orthodontic treatments

The following are four of some of the more popular cosmetic orthodontic treatments people are choosing in order to improve the way they look when they smile.

  1. Traditional braces

    Traditional braces are still a popular choice for those who are in need of a little tooth straightening. Also commonly known as metal braces, this orthodontic treatment for straightening teeth is one that is permanently attached to the teeth for a certain amount of time, such as 12 months, 18 months.

  2. Clear braces

    Clear braces are just like traditional braces except for that they are made with clear materials instead of metal, making them much less noticeable. While clear braces are less noticeable, the clear materials used are not as strong as the metal used in traditional braces, making it necessary for wearers to be mindful of this fact while eating and brushing.

  3. Invisible braces

    Invisible braces are a common choice amongst those who would rather keep their tooth-straitening methods a little more discreet. These barely noticeable braces consist of aligners that need to be worn for a certain amount of time during the day, which means they can be taken out when performing everyday functions like eating and brushing one's teeth.
