At Smilemakers we offer several options for straightening teeth. Our cutting edge techniques result in beautiful results in less time and with less expense than previously thought possible.
Smiles are a big part of our identity, how we feel about ourselves and how others perceive us.
"We live in a very image-conscious society and impressions are made within a few seconds. Straightening teeth makes a difference and can ultimately make or break your chances of getting certain opportunities."
This is why teeth straightening (Orthodontics) has become very popular and in many cases has now become the treatment of choice - and contrary to what you may believe, you are never too old to have your teeth straightened.
A nice smile is not only beautiful, it also promotes good health:
When left untreated, many minor orthodontic problems may become worse, contributing to abnormal wear of tooth surfaces, inefficient chewing, excessive gum stress on gum tissue, and misalignment of the jaw joints. This can all lead to chronic headaches or pain in the face or neck. Treatment by a dentist to correct minor orthodontic issues are often less costly than the additional dental care required to treat more serious problems that can develop in later years.
With recent advances in Orthodontics allowing teeth to be straightened much faster and efficiently than ever before, it is never too late to invest in braces and start enjoying the lifelong results.
There are two main types of brace - those which are Fixed, and those which are Removable.
