Straighten Your Teeth
Let’s face it; we live in a superficial society. There isn’t much we can do about it except play along.

However, some people don’t feel like investing the time it takes to get that perfect bite, they just want a perfect looking bite. These folks can just leave the braces on long enough to fix what they don’t like then have them removed.
On the same track as superficiality, people want better looking teeth but they also don’t want people to know that they have braces or deal with the unattractiveness of having those things in your mouth for so long. You can give the appearance that you don’t have braces simply by asking for invisible braces. They are a little more expensive but they’ll get the job done, and you won’t look like a 13 year old.

They are placed on the backs of your teeth so nobody will even see that you have them on, unless they get an up close and personal look at the inside of your mouth. You can have them applied to either the top or bottom teeth…which begs the question:
Are lingual braces on only one level of teeth called Bilingual braces…think about it!
