Perhaps you have always wanted to address the appearance and function of your teeth, but you never received orthodontic care as a child or teenager. At the Smile Center in Virginia Beach, VA, Drs. Scott Parr and Tara Frey offer adult orthodontic treatment.
We understand that, as an adult, you may feel very self-conscious about the look of metal braces. For this reason, we offer discreet orthodontic treatment options, including Invisalign® clear aligners, as well as traditional braces.
No matter which type of treatment you choose, we can help you achieve a more beautiful smile.
Many patients mistakenly believe that they are too old for orthodontic treatment. In fact, adults can benefit from braces just as much as teens. If you have any of the following issues, you may be a good candidate for adult orthodontic care:
• Crooked or overlapping teeth
• Extra spacing
• Turned, tipped, or rotated teeth
• Open bite
We will carefully evaluate your teeth and take x-rays of your entire mouth. That way, we can determine your candidacy for orthodontic treatment, and begin creating your treatment plan.
Our practice offers several different types of orthodontic treatment that can benefit patients of all ages. The right type for you will depend on your aesthetic goals, budget, and the severity of your misalignment.
The options at our Virginia Beach practice include:
No matter what type of braces you choose, adult orthodontic care can improve your appearance and oral health. First, your teeth will be straighter and more proportionate.
Your new smile may revitalize your whole face, and you could look several years younger.
Along with your improved smile, you will also enjoy a greater sense of self-confidence. Following treatment, you may feel more assured in both social settings and in the workplace.
Along with these aesthetic benefits, adult orthodontic treatment can improve your long-term oral health. With straighter teeth, you will be less prone to cavities since food will no longer be trapped beneath crooked and overlapping teeth.
Braces and Invisalign® can also reduce your risk for TMJ disorder by redistributing the force of your bite.
