Traditional metal wire-and-bracket braces are still a popular choice for straightening teeth, but clear braces are another great option. These inconspicuous aligners offer several advantages over metal braces, such as greater ease of maintenance and greater comfort. They also allow the wearer to go about their routines and schedules as normal, without feeling self-conscious or inhibited by their braces. Here are a few things that you can do with clear braces.
Everyone wants to look their best on their wedding day. This usually does not involve having a mouth full of metal. Even if you otherwise look gorgeous for your bride or groom, having a set of gear in your mouth can be somewhat distracting and take away from the wedding photos. Besides how they’ll look in photos, you’ll want to have the freedom to enjoy the dinner reception, without worrying that you have food caught in your braces.
Whether you’re presenting at a ceremony or receiving an award, chances are, you’ll be expected to make a speech. With clear braces, you can have confidence that you’ll be able to speak unhindered and look your best in photos.
Most people don’t have an issue with how metal braces look, but if you’re the one wearing them and you want to make a good impression, especially on a date, you might feel a little self-conscious. Clear braces help take away this worry and allow you to enjoy your night out.
Because braces are usually associated with the awkward teen years, you might feel a little awkward wearing them as an adult. This can hinder your confidence at work. To maintain the level of professionalism that you want, for meetings or presentations, you might want to go with clear braces.
If you’re presenting at a public event or just out and about, you want to have confidence that you’ll be perceived a certain way by others. Metal braces can hinder this feeling, while clear braces work to improve your smile without interfering with your day-to-day activities.
