Invisible Braces V's Vanity

Growing up I had no problem with my teeth, even now in my 30's ive not had a single filling or a tooth removed and I have always looked after my teeth, my only slight issue is that my teeth aren't as straight as I would have liked them to be and vanity got in the way of me doing anything about it.  My work colleagues son isn't so lucky, his mouth is apparently too small to house all of his teeth and having to have at least one extracted, he has been told he needs braces to close up that gap and to pull all of his teeth into line.

Braces on teeth are nothing new, plenty of my friends growing up had retainer like braces or the ones which are fixed permanently to them for a good few years, the end result being lovely nice poker straight teeth.  I was slightly worried for my nephew, I remember the name calling when I was at school and looking back, it wasn't nice, taunts like 'train tracks' and 'metal mickey' probably still haunt my high school friend Michaela to this day.  However, now with a lot of cosmetic dentistry you can have what are called invisible braces or even ceramic braces, all options that were never around as I was growing up, apparently even Justin Bieber had invisible braces!.

Invisible braces are said to be a way to straighten your teeth without having the discomfort and inconvenience of wires and brackets. Using a series of clear, removable aligners, you can handle crowding, gaps, overbites, underbites and almost all other alignment problems.

I am really impressed with how many changes have been made with braces on teeth, more so because I have a fear of false teeth, something I have mentioned in another post and I hope that should any of my nieces or nephews ever need to have this work done on their teeth, they won't face the cruel taunts my friends did as children and should my vanity have not got in the way and this option was available to me then, I might have had those nice perfect straight teeth.

Did you have a brace growing up?

  1. I would definitely try this, braces are one thing that I think would really improve my confidence!

  2. I've been looking into tying Invisalign for many years. It's very expensive though O_o

  3. I refused to have a brace when I was offered one. I really wish I had though as I hate my teeth!

  4. If I had to choose I would go with the invisible ones as they make them stand out a lot less :)

  9. Gosh I have never heard of these, I wonder if they are available for teens as standard- they should be.

  10. I would definitely give this a go if I needed a brace; my nine year old is potentially looking at having to have one, and I think something like this would certainly help with her in puberty. Its a difficult enough time for them.... :-(

  11. I have terrible teeth, but never had braces. Something to remember if and when the kids need them.

  12. I knew that there were clear plastic dental trays. This is the first time I have seen clear dental brackets though. These brackets are super stunning and add quite a lot of grandeur to your teeth and smile. Would there be any problems with these brackets staying adhered to the tooth since they are made from non-metal material?
