Your pediatric dentist has recommended that your child get orthodontic treatment now -- and your youngster still has most of his or her baby teeth. Does that make any sense? Actually, although most children don't get braces until all or nearly all of their baby teeth are gone, some do benefit from early orthodontic intervention. The Purpose of Early Intervention In some cases, providing orthodontic care when a child still has most of the baby teeth prevents worse dental problems in the future.
I have never liked my teeth. I had a lot of dental problems, including deep staining and oddly shaped teeth. Every tooth did not have the same shape, and some were rounded while others were more square. Not surprisingly, I never smiled in pictures and not even much in real life. This left people thinking I was mean before they even met me. My dentist told me my best bet to improve the look of my smile was a set of porcelain dental veneers. He said they could make all my teeth white and the same shape. I said I wanted them without any hesitation, and we scheduled my procedures. I love my new teeth, and they really did change my life. I created this blog to help other people living with teeth they don't like realize that they do have options that can improve their smiles and their lives.
