“A warm smile is the universal language of kindness.” Often times, a simple smile from someone just makes your day. As a result, a beautiful smile can boost your confidence wherever you are. Your crooked teeth shouldn’t get in the way of giving someone a good smile.
It is common knowledge that braces take years of waiting, costly materials, many visits to the dentist, and quite a lot of pain. You need to be picky about which dentist to go to. All of this comes a great expense to you. Often times, it’s cost-efficient to get it done in Seoul especially if you are residing in Seoul. Seoul offers various types and options of braces at a reasonable price. They range from regular braces, invisalign invisible braces, retainers to simple aligners and even one day alignment! Compared to other K-beauty services, braces are just as affordable to other countries like the US, Canada and Europe. And the good thing is that you have more options so you can choose the best one that fits your needs.
Here are few places of my recommendation

MINISH is at the top of the list for not only being one of the best and most trusted dentists in Seoul or Korea, but for being one of the most famous in Asia.

At MINISH they perform all types of alignment treatment and you can even have one day treatment done if you don’t want to wait months to have your fixed.

Do your research and shop around prior to making your decision
Most people when it comes to braces, they often get afraid of visiting the dentist and end up not doing any research assuming first place they visit is the best choice. I made my mistakes when I was young by visiting the dentist that was closest to me. Because not only the prices are different, but also the options they were offering were different. So it’s best that you visit at least 3-4 and listen to the list of options and how they are going to approach your problem. If all the dentist offers you the same options, then all you have to worry about is the price assuming their quality and review is above par. In the end, it doesn’t hurt to do some research and visit few places prior to making your decision. Here are some other popular cosmetic dentistry procedures
