There are many options for invisible braces including crystal cosmetic braces (clear) or Invisalign.
A properly aligned bite and straight teeth is more than a cosmetic consideration. Correction of malocclusion (improper alignment of teeth) is better for your overall dental health.
According to the A.D.A. Orthodontic treatment "is used to correct a "bad bite." This condition, known as a malocclusion, involves teeth that are crowded or crooked. In some cases, the upper and lower jaws may not meet properly and although the teeth may appear straight, the individual may have an uneven bite.
Correcting the problem can create a nice-looking smile, but more important, orthodontic treatment results in a healthier mouth. That's because crooked and crowded teeth make cleaning the mouth difficult, which can lead to tooth decay, gum disease and possibly tooth loss. An improper bite can interfere with chewing and speaking, can cause abnormal wear to tooth enamel, and can lead to problems with the jaws."
