Straightening your teeth not only improves your oral health, but it can also improve your smile. Braces can redefine your smile at any age, and as many as 20 to 25 percent of orthodontic patients today are adults, according to the Seton Hill University Center for Orthodontics.
Perfecting your smile doesn't begin and end with braces. Once the braces come off, you have a few options for further enhancing your smile, including wearing a retainer, teeth whitening and teeth reshaping after braces. If you're looking for ways to perfect your smile, consider how these treatments might work for you.
