With the impact and perception of a nice smile being such an important personal feature these days, many people are investing in their smile which can have a positive impact on all apsects of life from employment, social situations and even dating.
Kelton Research carried out a digital perception study on the images of men and women with straight and crooked teeth. In the study. Participants were shown images of people with various dental issues and asked to give their honest opinion about them, unaware that they were comparing people with straight teeth to crooked teeth. Results of the study indicated that participants perceive people with straight teeth to have more desirable qualities than those with crooked teeth, these qualities included being happy, being loved and professionally successful.

They straighten teeth like metal braces, yet they are more affordable, comfortable, less noticeable and more compatible with people’s every day life.
