The main complaint about traditional braces is that they are very noticeable. The metal brackets and wires cannot be missed by anyone you come across each day. Some patients opt for Invisalign due to this concern, but not everyone makes for a good candidate for this appliance. If our Rocklin orthodontists recommend braces for you, you could receive a less noticeable form for a more discreet experience.
One option is white braces. Instead of metallic brackets, these feature white ones that match the color of the teeth. They will work exactly like their traditional counterpart, which involves tightening the wires in order to pull the teeth into place.
This option is a great choice for those who lead lives wherein a good appearance is vital. This may include business professionals, on-air personalities, and younger patients with a growing sense of self-confidence. You might be able to combine white braces with another less-noticeable aspect, such as Damon braces, which feature smaller brackets.
Our orthodontist will be able to discuss your options with you, both in regards to your health and your appearance. We can answer any questions you may have about the process and your teeth.
