This is a category of braces which are worn to improve your facial appearance, namely that of your smile. These braces are white or transparent and are designed to be as discreet as possible.
They are one of several options to the traditional ‘train track’ braces.
Braces are a type of orthodontic device which are worn to correct any number of dental or facial abnormalities such as malocclusion, under/overbite, TMJ, crowded teeth and spacing between teeth.
In these cases there is a clear dental need for a brace which is discussed in more detail in the orthodontics section.
This section discusses the various types of braces worn as part of a smile makeover or for purely cosmetic reasons. In either case the aim is to straighten the teeth and improve their appearance. This will also improve your smile.
A cosmetic brace is often included as part of an overall treatment plan which includes porcelain veneers and crowns plus inlays and onlays.
