How to make your Teeth Straighter without Braces (Alternate options)  

Before proceeding to the home natural options, I would also like to share a few other alternate options for teeth straightening.

Here I am sharing 5 alternate options of braces that you must know, if not for now then for the future.

Option 1:- Veneers

This is the best alternate and the fastest way to align your teeth. Veneers are a cosmetic dentistry method in which a tooth is permanently bonded with a thin and hard shell.

However, this method is very expensive and not applicable to all people.


Option 2:- Essix Retainers

Essix retainers are transparent and so less noticeable than other braces.

This option is less expensive and works for only minimal alignment of teeth.

This option is not recommended if you have major alignment.


Option 3:- Invisalign

This is another popular option for orthodontic treatment and a brace alternate.

This method works quickly and clear plastic retainers are used to align the teeth.

The process is safe and it’s really hard for people to guess that you have anything on your teeth.


Option 4: Headgear

This orthodontic method applies force on the upper and lower jaw to bring teeth in the proper position.

Headgear is removable and you only need to wear it for few hours daily as recommended by the dentist.


Option 5:- Incognito braces 

As the name incognito technically means private, and here your braces will also be private and nobody would be able to see it.

Now if your concern is due to braces visibility that looks really weird, then you can go with this option.

In this method, braces are placed from the backside of the teeth due to which it’s not visible to others.
