I’m an adult and interested in getting braces

I’m an adult and interested in getting braces. Are there things I can do to make them less obvious and play them down?

There are now a number of cosmetic brace options available. The brackets can be clear rather than the metal brackets and look more discrete. If you didn’t want to show the braces at all, then lingual braces are the choice for you. The brackets are fitted on the inner surfaces of the teeth and no-one will see that you are wearing braces. Invisalign is also a less obvious treatment option as you are wearing transparent aligners which are also removable.
