Ceramic (tooth coloured) braces
This option is using the camouflage principle where the braces are made to almost merge with the color of your teeth so they appear less visible.The more advanced variety you choose the more they blend with your teeth appearing visible only to someone in close proximity. Being fixed these work within a very quick timeframe exerting pressure where needed and require training similar to conventional braces so any orthodontist is qualified to work with them.
Lingual braces (behind your teeth) braces
These are metal braces that go at the back of your teeth so that no one can see them except you can feel them. People who work in media or prefer not to highlight their correction opt for these and usually adjust very well to them except a few who find it inconvenient to speak and eat as the encroachment in the tongue space can take some getting used to. This option is also fixed and may take some additional time also needs more intensive training and even very good laboratory support.
Invisible (Removable plastic) braces
This option seems to be catching on the most attention as the idea of wearing braces when u want and getting rid of them at a party or an important event is definitely appealing.There are multiple varieties in the market which even cost a lot but only a few certified ones bring you the results (but a word of caution) only if you wear them.High level of patient cooperation is solicited for these as they will not work unless worn for almost 20-22hours a day making them almost fixed.While these are entirely computer guided and generated, your orthodontist needs to be highly trained and certified to make these work. Since they come as ready trays in a sequence opting to visit your doctor only once every 2 months is also a popular option for people who travel excessively.
