I’ve wanted a prettier smile for a long time. I can afford it, but am in desperate need of braces. I just can’t stand the thought of a mouth full of metal for several years as an adult. Is there another option?

You’re in luck! You have a couple of great options. If your teeth are crooked, but not bucked out too much, you may not even need to straighten them. Porcelain veneers can give you a complete smile makeover without braces. They can make your teeth appear straight, as well as change their shape, size, and color.
There are some cases where your teeth actually do need to be straightened. But don’t despair! That no longer condemns you to a mouth full of metal. You can get Invisalign. These use clear aligners that you switch out every two weeks. Plus, because the treatment is computer designed, it usually works in less than half the time of traditional braces.
The important thing for you is to get in to see a highly skilled cosmetic dentist. Click here to get an idea of what kind of credentials you need to look for in a cosmetic dentist.
