Adult Braces Can Get You the Smile You Want

At Shiney Smiles Orthodontics, age is just a number. No matter how busy you are, there is always time to improve your smile—it’s never too late to treat yourself to a beautiful smile that we’re proud to stand behind.

Get a Perfect Smile

Gone are the days of adults feeling ashamed to undergo orthodontic treatment. With the drastic improvement of technology and materials over the past several years, we’re happy to give you multiple subtle options.

With options such as clear ceramic braces, InBrace hidden braces and clear aligners (like Invisalign® and 3M® Clarity), there is no reason why your kids should be the only ones to get that perfect smile.

Today, about one in every five orthodontic patients at our office are adults from all around Syosset, Plainview, Woodbury and Huntington areas.

Are You Too Old for Braces?

Although childhood is the ideal time to make changes to the positioning of the teeth, more adults are opting for orthodontic treatment.

Many adults believe that they are too old for braces or may feel embarrassed to wear them, but with advancements in orthodontic treatments, wearing braces is no longer aesthetically unpleasant (think: Invisalign & lingual braces) and the outcomes can be just as good.

There’s only one key factor to keep in mind and that is that it might take longer to straighten the teeth. Since adults have denser bone tissue than children, the treatment may take longer, but age does not keep the teeth from moving.
