If you've got crooked, bent, or misaligned teeth, you know how embarrassing it can be to give your biggest smile. When you lack a winning smile, in fact, your confidence often dips to depressing lows and can even ostracize you among your peers and family members.

At The Dental Spa in Woodbridge, VA, the health and appearance of your pearly whites is the top priority. That means that evenBraces if your teeth are kept clean and shine with a crystal-clear glow, more work must be done if they're not symmetrical with one another and/or lack proper alignment!

One of the leading solutions for crooked or misaligned teeth is braces, which offer a long-term solution in the form of metal devices attached to your teeth to help them slowly straighten out. While braces are reliable and very effective, there are some myths about them that are doing them no favors.

Let's get the top three myths straightened out below:

1: Only Kids Get Braces
On the contrary, an estimated one million American adults wear braces today. Recent dental improvements have made adult braces a leading orthodontic solution in recent times, in fact!

Look at celebrities from Tom Cruise to Lil Wayne, and you'll see why braces aren't just what the cool kids are doing these days!

2: Braces Are Unattractive
Using techniques like Invisalign, Lingual Braces, and Clear Bracket Braces, patients have more options than ever before to get their braces to fit right in, naturally!

3: Braces Take Forever Before They Work
Nowadays, braces can lead to significant dental improvements in as little as six months. Using only the most expert techniques to safely transition teeth into their desired position, the orthodontic possibilities of today allow brace treatments to be as convenient as you want them to be!

If you're ready to get back that confident smile today, give The Dental Spa a call at (703) 580-1443 and discover for yourself why braces are ready to straighten things out in your mouth!
