Faith's Smile

Faith was embarrassed with her smile. She felt she could not even smile. She was very shy and did not make friends easily.  She had a missing lateral incisor and a peg lateral tooth. Her mother wanted her to have braces to help her daughter with feel confident about herself. We worked on her spaces, centering her teeth and afterwards, her dentist helped with restorative treatment to give their correct shape.

Vlad's Smile

Vlad was a young bright 12 year old boy. He felt he did not like his smile, since it looked like she had a tooth missing. He did not have enough space for his upper teeth and also presented a deep bite. We placed and expander and after then braces, correcting the bite and space needed.

Millie's Smile

Millie could not close her front teeth and properly function. She was a very shy 14-year-old with a severe open bite. Her mom had consulted several orthodontists who said to her that she would need surgery and could not start her treatment until she finished her growth. We placed a habit appliance and referred her to a speech therapist, to help her re learn her tongue and lip postures. Afterwards we placed braces along with rubber bands to help close her bite.
