Are Crooked Teeth Holding You Back from Your Best Smile?

Whether you're an adult or a child, having a straighter, more beautiful smile is essential! For adults, crooked teeth may cause you to hide your smile when you interact with other people, giving them the impression that you're unapproachable or unfriendly. For kids, misaligned teeth or an incorrect bite can impact things like their developing speech patterns and their self-esteem.

However, your team at Toronto Lakeshore Dental can help both adults and children achieve a healthy and beautiful smile with teeth straightening in Etobicoke that includes both traditional and invisible braces.

Traditional Orthodontics in Etobicoke

We make it convenient for our families to achieve straighter teeth by offering a full range of orthodontic services. Adults who need traditional brackets and wires to correct their smiles can choose between metal or clear braces.

Our dentists begin evaluating children for orthodontic treatment in Etobicoke around the age of seven years old. While most kids who need orthodontic treatment start around the age of 12, some children who struggle with bite problems (overbite or underbite) or severe crowding of their teeth can benefit from early orthodontic treatment. Early treatment maximizes their growth to help correct tooth and bite alignment and make future orthodontic treatment more comfortable and efficient.

Invisible Braces

Our dentists typically recommend invisible braces in Etobicoke for our teen or adult patients. This is because the treatment entails using clear plastic aligners instead of braces, which requires good compliance to be most effective.

Invisalign is an excellent way for busy adults and teens to straighten their teeth without anyone noticing. Since aligners are removable, there are no changes to a home care routine or diet restrictions during treatment.
