I Don’t Want People to See My Braces. What Can I Do?

Don’t Want Your Braces Showing?

At King Orthodontics, we see many patients who would love to straighten their teeth and improve their bite – but they don’t want anyone to see that they’re undergoing orthodontic treatment.

We understand. We have many patients, both teens and adults, who would rather have people concentrate on what they’re saying than what’s in their mouth. We’re happy to share some orthodontic devices with you, both metal braces and invisible plastic aligners, that are nearly invisible.

Invisalign®

Invisible Braces

Invisalign® and Invisalign Teen® are clear plastic aligners that are custom-made for your teeth and mouth. They’re an easy, invisible alternative to traditional metal braces. Your orthodontist will take measurements to determine the specifics of your treatment, and a series of aligners will be produced that are meant for your teeth only. Every two weeks, you’ll discard your aligners and replace them with a new set. These trays gently push your teeth into place, and they fit comfortably in your mouth. The best part is that they’re both removable and invisible. No one will see them, and you only take them out to drink, eat, and floss and brush.

ClarityTM Clear Braces

These braces are much like traditional braces, but they’re clear. They’re less visible than other kinds of braces because the materials used are nearly invisible. Since they are more fragile than traditional braces, they are only used on the front teeth.

Damon Clear Braces

These braces are self-ligating, which means that they use tieless braces to move teeth more quickly, and with less pressure. They’re a combination of clear braces and clear aligners that deliver fast results. Additionally, the components are less likely to yellow or discolor.

IncognitoTM Braces

These braces are placed behind your teeth so that no one can see them. They can be worn by anyone, and are customized to your teeth. They’re very effective for any kind of bite problem, too.

Keep in mind that whether you’re using braces or Invisalign, you can speed up the movement of your teeth by as much as 50% by using AcceleDent, a safe and effective treatment that is used in conjunction with your orthodontic appliance.

There are many different options available if you’d like to use less visible braces or aligners. Call King Orthodontics at one of our two convenient locations in downtown Pittsburgh and North Pittsburgh. We can help you choose the right clear braces or invisible aligners that will straighten your teeth, invisibly and quickly.

I just wanted to take a minute to write and let you know what a wonderful addition Dr. Babb is to your office. I was in twice this week and saw Dr. Babb on Monday for the first time. She is absolutely wonderful - just so nice and she really seems to be invested in her patients. The entire staff at Wexford office is wonderful and Dr. Babb is just icing on the cake.

I absolutely love King Orthodontics!! The staff are so friendly and actually care about you and your teeth. Almost everyone who works there knows you by name which is very uncommon for a place with so many patients. It is so worth the hour drive it takes me to get there. I would highly recommend King Orthodontics to anyone!!!!!
