Most of adult patients are seeking orthodontic treatment in order to improve their smile, and they realize that a beautiful smile will improve their overall facial aesthetics, their self confidence and quality of life.
The benefit of orthodontic treatment can be achieved with a variety of orthodontic appliances, clear brackets or clear aligners. But the most aesthetic are the invisible braces which are bonded on the lingual surface of the teeth (the inside) and provide excellent alternative to traditional orthodontic braces, along with the best control on tooth movements. This is the best option for esthetically concerned patients.
