Brace Yourself … for a Straighter Smile

As an adult, you want to present yourself as a professional. You want people to respect you at work, and you want people to see you for who you are in your personal life.

If you have crooked teeth, however, you may have noticed that people can sometimes seem distracted when you are a trying to talk to them.

You would love to have straighter teeth and a nicer smile, but you aren’t sure if braces work for adults as well as they do for teenagers. At Hillstream Dental, we can assure you that you are never too old for braces.

If you are interested in creating a beautiful smile with straight teeth, we can help you achieve that goal. Start with a consultation at one of our offices in Rochester Hills or St. Clair Shores, MI.

Be Yourself

When you feel good about your smile, that can carry over into your overall sense of confidence. Perhaps it’s not a coincidence that in surveys, people have said that a person with a nice smile seems friendlier, happier, more intelligent, and more trustworthy.

Those are all traits most of us would like to have.

We’ve seen these kinds of changes more times than we can count in our decades of helping patients. People who feel self-conscious about their smiles sometimes go to extreme lengths to hide their teeth. This could mean covering their mouths with a hand any time they talk to trying their hardest to avoid smiling at all.

After they have changed their smiles with braces or another of our many services, they act as if a weight has been taken off their backs. They feel free to laugh and smile and talk . They let their personalities shine, and they don’t seem concerned that someone else might see their teeth.

It can be a life-changing experience , which might explain why 1 in 5 people wearing braces today is an adult.

Kinds of Braces

At Hillstream Dental, you have your choice of three kinds of braces.

First and foremost, we offer metal braces . This is what most people think of when they think of dental work. It’s what many of us remember teenagers wearing when we were kids.

At the same time, it’s also what makes some adults hesitant to get this kind of care. As much as some people would like straight teeth, they may not be willing to wear metal braces to make this happen.

But you should know that metal braces can work on almost any alignment problem that you may have.

For something a little more discreet, we also offer clear, ceramic braces . The brackets on these braces closely match the color of your teeth. This makes them much less noticeable while you are wearing them.

Many patients (teens and adults) prefer to wear these braces for precisely this reason.

Even so, some adults would rather wear something that’s practically invisible. Thankfully, that’s an option at our offices, too. ClearCorrect uses clear aligners, which some people have called “invisible braces.”

For adults with mild or moderate alignment issues, ClearCorrect can give you an inconspicuous option for changing your smile.
