Is it ever too late to get braces? Plenty of people who have chosen to get braces as adults say no. Adults now make up about half of the clients who visit Scottsdale orthodontists for braces. With new innovations in braces technology, adults can get the dazzling smile they want without looking too young and unprofessional. The simple fact that more adults than ever are choosing to wear braces means you aren’t going to stand out. With today’s smaller, less noticeable or invisible braces, you can straighten your teeth in a very low-key way that still yields exciting results.

Straight Teeth as Fast as Possible

If time is of the essence and you’re not overly concerned about having visible braces, traditional metal braces are one of the best choices for you. They move teeth into alignment more quickly than invisible braces. You can even keep things sophisticated by choosing low-key band colors such as neutrals or metallics.

Traditional metal braces also help to correct bad bites the most efficiently. If you have had a cross bite or severe tooth misalignment since childhood, metal braces offer you the biggest bang for your braces buck.

Straight Teeth Without the Metal Mouth – Alternatives to Braces as an Adult in Scottsdale

As a professional, you may not want to show off a mouthful of metal. In your case, invisible braces such as Invisalign in Scottsdale AZ could be a good option for you. Invisalign braces are clear, custom made aligners that slide over your teeth. Tooth movement is slower than with metal braces, and you’ll need to get a new aligner every two weeks. The advantage of invisible braces are the fact that they are far less noticeable than metal braces. A disadvantage is that you might have to wear braces for a longer period of time.
