Gabriel was always self-conscious about his smile. But, lately, he felt like his crooked teeth were suddenly front and center during zoom meetings. With cosmetic braces, he was able to fix his smile without traditional braces.
If you’re like Gabriel, you know that first impressions are important. Whether you’re meeting someone or giving a presentation to your boss, you want to put your best foot forward. And, in today’s world, that often means making sure your teeth look their best.
Let’s go over a few cosmetic braces options that can help you achieve the smile of your dreams.
Many adults and even children are self-conscious about their teeth and want to fix them. But, they don’t want to wear traditional braces because they’re afraid of how they’ll look. This is important because they know they’ll have to wear braces for a year or two, or maybe more depending on their specific orthodontic needs. If this is you, cosmetic braces may be the solution.
Cosmetic braces are available in a few different options.
This option is less visible than traditional braces and uses a clear or tooth-colored material. Typically, the wires are also tooth-colored, so people can only notice these braces in person.
With zoom calls, people will only be able to see your clear or ceramic braces if they are up close. And, even then, it’s likely they won’t even notice them.
Lingual braces are another cosmetic option that can be virtually invisible. An orthodontist will place lingual braces on the tongue side of your teeth. This ensures they’re not visible when you smile or talk. They are essentially traditional braces but are in a spot where your teeth hide them from view.
This option is great if you also have more severe orthodontic issues. The durability of lingual braces can handle more complex cases and issues.
Like clear and ceramic braces, people will only be able to see your lingual braces if they are up close. And, even then, they may not notice them unless you open your mouth or show them.
Plastic aligners, like Invisalign®, are also an option. They look similar to retainers and are practically invisible when you wear them. And, the best part is that you can remove them during zoom calls or photographs if you want to be even more discreet.
Invisalign® is great because you can receive treatment from the comfort of your home with Dr. Yazji’s Anywhere Smiles® program. After your initial consultation, you’ll come in to get your custom-made, clear aligners and you’ll receive instructions on how to wear and take care of them. You can then begin treatment and only need to check in virtually with Dr. Yazji every few weeks. Anywhere Smiles® by Dr. Yazji is a great alternative for those of you who work from home and are all day in Zoom meetings. You won’t need to leave the house to get orthodontic checkups.
Do your teeth make you feel self-conscious during Zoom meetings? Do you avoid smiling in photographs because you don’t like how your teeth look? If so, cosmetic braces may be a good option for you. With cosmetic braces, you can receive orthodontic treatment without anyone even knowing!
