Some adult never had the opportunity to have braces in their earlier years, but still yearn for a beautiful smile. Many of these patients believe that they are too old for braces, but the reality is that teeth are always able to move and be properly aligned, regardless of your age.
eDentistry Wantirna understands that wearing braces as an adult can often considered to be social taboo. Because of this, we have several options for teeth alignment for adults, which do not require braces and are virtually unnoticeable to others.
Notice how we haven’t used the words “straight teeth” so far? A really important concept for people to understand when aligning teeth, is that “straight teeth” is not the same as a beautiful smile. “What is the difference?” you may ask.
Have a look at the two photos below.
The photo on the left shows teeth that are “straight”. However, the smiles still doesn’t look that nice, does it? However, when the teeth are aligned to have the tips of the teeth in the shape of an arc that follows the shape of the lower lip, the smile is so much more beautiful. This is the secret of a dazzling smile!
