Adults and Braces

Posted .

As an adult getting braces isn’t the most pleasurable thing you can do. Braces are for teenagers, not professional working adults, right?

Well, if you want a straight smile to help improve your confidence in professional settings – as well as your self-confidence in regards to your appearance – then you definitely need to take a moment to consider what options you have as an adult to get the straight smile you deserve.


Invisalign is one of the most popular teeth-straightening methods available. Instead of using the traditional brackets and wires you think of when picturing braces, Invisalign uses a series of clear plastic aligners. These aligners are worn for two weeks at a time, then discarded for the next set. Over a short period of time, the aligners will move your teeth into position – without braces! Most people won’t even notice the clear aligners on your teeth.

Ceramic braces

If you’re not a candidate for Invisalign, ceramic braces are another great option. These do use wires, but they’re attached to your teeth with a ceramic, tooth-colored resin, making them more discrete and professional.
