We Offer More Professional-Looking Adult Braces at South Florida Dental Arts

Posted on: December 16, 2017

BracesIf you need adult braces but are hesitant because you think they look unprofessional, then we have some information that you need to hear. According to a survey by American Association of Orthodontists, 78 percent of Americans, over three-fourths, think adults with crooked teeth look unsuccessful. The participants in the survey also think that many people with crooked teeth feel like they are missing out on a nicer job due to their smile. Thus, getting adult braces can increase your chances of looking professional and becoming more successful.

Not only will straight teeth make you look more attractive, but they will also increase the health of your teeth and give you a more hygienic appearance. Crooked teeth can increase your chance of getting cavities and paying higher dentist bills for repairs at any age. Adult braces can help you maintain attractive, straight, and healthy teeth. Braces are actually more common for adults than ever before. In many cases, adults make up about 50 percent of people who wear braces.

New Braces Designs

If you are concerned that the appliance of braces looks unsightly or distracting, we are happy to tell you that we now offer more light-weight, attractive, and less obvious braces designs for adult teeth. The braces today have smaller brackets, zero thick bands around teeth, and tooth-colored options. Some of these designs for adult braces are:

Lingual Braces

These braces use the tried-and-true traditional metal braces method, however, lingual braces go on the back of the teeth so they are not noticeable to others. They are commonly known as concealed braces.

Ceramic Braces

These are similar to traditional braces, but they are more attractive using tooth-colored and translucent ceramic components that blend in with your teeth. This is a popular option for adults because it is more cosmetically appealing. Since adults are more careful, they wear ceramic braces more successfully. Ceramic braces are slightly more fragile than traditional braces and require extra precautions.

Traditional Braces

Traditional braces are more attractive to wear than in the past. It is easy for adults to reminisce about the cumbersome and noticeable braces of their childhood. However, the brackets are smaller, the wiring is thinner, so the entire structure is less noticeable. Patients can always customize the bands and other parts of the braces to match the shade of the teeth.

Shorter Wear Period

For those who want braces but do not want to go through the normal 12-20 month treatment period, we offer shorter treatment times. We reserve this form of treatment for patients who only need a few adjustments around the front teeth. Some adults only have to wear the braces for six months.

These are a few of the designs we provide and we will be happy to work with you on an individual level to determine what option is best for your smile needs. To learn more about our attractive and professional-looking options for adult braces, call South Florida Dental Arts at (305) 665-6564 and visit our office.
