Smile Makeover

Braces aren’t just for kids anymore! Choose the treatment that will make your confidence soar and receive the radiant smile you deserve.

Here are the most common reasons why braces make sense for adults:

Adults braces - braces at any age are worth the results
  • Reposition drifted or recently re-crowded teeth
     

  • Boost self confidence
     

  • Customize appearance of teeth to your lips (smile design)
     

  • Close gaps
     

  • Decrease chipping and wear to avoid cracked teeth
     

  • Straighten teeth and improve avoiding cavities and gum problems
     

  • Potentially decrease TMJ and associated headaches
     

  • Support improved chewing and food digestion for good overall heath

Adult orthodontics has shown to dramatically improve personal appearance and overall confidence.  The goal is to improve self-esteem, support optimal oral health, and shine with an amazing smile.

 

Adult orthodontics is different than teenage braces because growth and development are complete and the gums and bones around the teeth are not as flexible and pliable.  Not to worry, your goals will be achieved under Dr. Patil’s careful treatment planning, care, and skill.  He has distinct experience, as he was a Cosmetic Dentist for 12 years before becoming an Orthodontist, plus he had braces both as a teenager and as an adult.  

 

Dr. Patil carefully develops a custom treatment plan that spells out direction, rotation, and timing for each specific tooth in order to create an optimal fit with all of the other teeth.  As a Board-Certified Orthodontist with an aesthetic eye, Dr. Patil combines the artistry of sculpting smiles with the precision and science of creating healthy smiles. He offers individualized smile design through a unique treatment plan for each patient.

 

Specific goals for treatment are set during a consultation with Dr. Patil and will vary based on each individual case.  Generally, adult orthodontic treatment takes between six and thirty months to complete.  The treatment time will depend on the specificity of your case and treatment. Additionally, longest lasting results occur when the bite is corrected because the fitting of upper to lower teeth act as a lifetime natural retainer.
