Do you want to know a secret? Hardly anybody is born with “perfect teeth”. Most of the people you know with straight, bright, million-dollar smiles probably have their dentist to thank, not genetics. Even Hollywood movie stars who display their smiles on the silver screen usually have had some work done.
If you have crooked teeth, an overbite or underbite, or you simply don’t love the way your smile looks, the solution is often relatively simple. Orthodontics, including braces for both teens and adults, offers a pathway to the type of smile you can be proud to display for the rest of your life.
Braces for Everybody
Most people think you have to be a teenager to get braces. But that’s simply not true. Just about everybody can benefit from having orthodontics straighten their teeth, giving them the kind of perfect smile they have always wanted. The only people who don’t usually need braces are small children who are still waiting for their adult teeth to grow in.
Adult braces are becoming increasingly common. People whose parents didn’t have their teeth straightened when they were younger often seek dental solutions later in life. It can be rewarding and satisfying to have straight teeth. Today, there are even transparent braces that straighten teeth without the embarrassment of wires and retainers.
At Bella Smile, we have one goal: To provide our patients with healthy teeth that make them happy. For people with crooked teeth or smiles they are embarrassed to show, that may include braces — regardless of your age.
Having braces is no big deal. Depending on the starting condition of your teeth, you may be able to have your braces removed after less than a year and enjoy the kind of bright, cheerful smile you’ve always wanted for the rest of your life.
