If you work in the entertainment industry, your smile is an important part of your repertoire. But crooked teeth, gaps, or an overbite or underbite can affect your confidence as a performer. Fortunately, you have many orthodontic options to choose from today. Dental patients are no longer limited to traditional metal braces.
As a performer, you need a discreet orthodontic treatment. You also need a treatment that won't prevent you from performing in the way that you want. Here are three convenient and discreet braces that you can wear while you continue to entertain.
1. Invisalign Braces
Invisalign braces are the most convenient brace type of all because you can remove them whenever you want to. Though most dentists recommend wearing each aligner for 22 hours per day, you can tailor your treatment to your specific needs. For instance, if you sing to an audience for six hours a day, you can arrange to wear each aligner for 16–18 hours per day instead.
And the other plus is that Invisalign braces are hard to spot while you wear them.
2. Ceramic Braces
Ceramic braces aren't quite as discreet as Invisalign braces, and you can't remove them. But if you are a singer or presenter, they won't affect your speech as much as Invisalign or incognito braces will. The wires and brackets of ceramic braces are clear, and this will allow you to perform without worrying about your braces standing out.
Another good thing about ceramic braces is that they are almost as effective at straightening teeth as traditional metal braces.
3. Incognito (Lingual) Braces
Incognito braces attach to the backs of your teeth rather than the front. From there, they gradually pull your teeth into a better alignment while remaining invisible. But these braces might not be suitable if you are a singer or presenter since they will irritate your tongue at first. But if you book some time off in the period after getting them, you can take some time to get used to them.
Once your tongue has adapted to incognito braces, then you may be able to perform without worrying about how they will affect your speech.
Crooked teeth can prevent you from giving the kind of performances you want. But if you choose the right orthodontic treatment, you can carry on entertaining and undergo orthodontic treatment at the same time. Once your treatment is over, you'll only need to wear a removable retainer at certain times of the day.
