The Ideal Smile Vs Reality

Anyone who pays attention to their smile in the mirror for long enough will surely notice the different changes they can make to their smile to give a better first impression. When we start to ponder how our teeth could look better, we start to picture the ideal smile in our heads. We may then try to find this ‘ideal smile’ through orthodontics. The reality of doing this though can sometimes be different to how we imagined.

The Ideal Smile

Ceramic Braces

One choice that’s out there is ceramic braces. Ceramic braces are comprised of tooth-coloured brackets adjoined to a wire that runs across the teeth. The advantage of this type of orthodontics compared to traditional braces is that the brackets are less conspicuous due to their colour. Despite this, the combination of the brackets and wires are more visible than more advanced treatments available today. Additionally, because they use wires and brackets, these braces can cause irritation and can't be removed for eating or cleaning.



Some may chase their goal for better teeth by choosing clear braces. Invisalign, offered by Specialist Orthodontist Harley Street, are invisible braces designed to move your teeth over time into a more aesthetically pleasing position. These invisible aligners can be removed before eating, drinking and cleaning. Invisalign is a highly effective way to improve the positioning of your teeth and enhance your smile, and they are transparent too. This makes them incredibly discrete, meaning that you can wear them confidently without feeling self-conscious or awkward.


The Conclusion

To sum up, having the ideal smile in mind and then trying to make it a reality takes time and work. It’s not impossible though, and in truth, by going with a first-rate orthodontist like Specialist Orthodontist Harley Street you can expect a comfortable and easy experience en route to the culmination of your treatment process. From there you’re left to enjoy your new, glowing smile.

Why Choose a Specialist Orthodontist?

Specialist orthodontists are dentists who have more training and experience providing orthodontic treatments such as Invisalign. Patients that receive orthodontics from a specialist find that their treatment is of higher quality, they finish treatment much sooner, and the level of care they receive is much higher.
