Straightening your teeth secretly?

I’ve wanted to get my teeth straightened since I was a pre-teen. My parents couldn’t afford braces, then after I grew up, I couldn’t afford them. I’m finally in a place where I can get braces, but don’t fancy a metal mouth at my age. A friend mentioned there is a secret way to straighten your teeth where there’s no metal. Is that true?

Georgia,

Your friend is right. Adults (and even teenagers) no longer have to wear metal braces. You can straighten your smile with invisible aligners using the Invisalign system.

These are clear aligners that can’t be seen on your teeth, even at a conversational distance. You can get them from an orthodontist, or even a general dentist.

Invisalign has a high patient satisfaction rate because of the comfort and speed of the treatment.
