Regular metal braces are designed with metal brackets that are attached to the outside of your teeth with a special glue with metal wires running horizontally as well as applied pressure put onto your teeth to shift it until it is perfect. The next style is a tad bit more expensive but it is a great option nevertheless if you do not mind metal braces and want to conceal your braces behind your teeth. It is essentially regular metal braces placed on the inside of your teeth instead of the outside. The last type is invisalign which is the most expensive option; however, it gives you more flexibility than the other options. It is made of a clear plastic material that is very hard to spot someone wearing it; moreover, it is constructed from a mold of your teeth so it applies pressure like metal braces to fix your smile. It is normal for every couple of weeks to get a new invisalign so it adjusts to your teeth’s movement. Many benefits come with invisalign including it being detachable like a retainer, allowing you to eat whatever type of food you want without being worried about damaging brackets, and more.
