When people think about Orthodontic treatment the first thing that comes to their mind is straight teeth. Braces can do much more than that.
Orthodontics not only improves the alignment and aesthetic look of your teeth, but it can contribute to the healthy function and longevity of your teeth as well. By aligning your teeth in the proper position through orthodontic treatment, you reduce the amount of undue force and wear on your teeth. You can also have better access for cleaning your teeth and therefore reduce the chance of developing gum disease and bone loss. When you improve the overall look and health of your teeth, you have more self confidence and self esteem. Orthodontics is an investment in the long term well being of your teeth.
Over time, teeth may darken or become discoloured over time from smoking, coffee, tea or certain fruits that can stain teeth. Tooth whitening is a bleaching process that reverses discolourations of the enamel to create a whiter, brighter smile. Once the exact cause of your tooth discolouration is established, we will recommend a whitening regime to meet your specific situation.
