You may think that orthodontic treatment is just for teenagers, but with even A-List celebrities like Tom Cruise and Faith Hill being photographed on the red carpet wearing braces, this is a perception that is rapidly shifting.
While according to the American Association of Orthodontists, one in five orthodontic patients are actually over the age of 21, our patient family is approximately 30% adults! Having a beautiful smile is becoming increasingly important and having straight teeth is high on the list. You don’t need to have expensive veneers to get the perfect smile. Adult orthodontics can straighten and align your own teeth so that you can look and feel fantastic.
Why should I consider orthodontic treatment?
Straight teeth look better and allow you to present your "best self" to the world. They are healthier, too. If your teeth are crooked or over-crowded it can make flossing and brushing difficult and can lead to dental problems such as decay and gum disease. Orthodontic treatment can not only help boost your self-confidence but also give you a healthy new smile.
