Am I too old for braces?
You are never too old for the smile you have always wanted. You might be surprised to learn that many of our patients seek cosmetic dentistry or choose to improve the health of their smiles in their fifties, sixties, and even seventies! The truth is that we can expect to live long lives and many people enjoy healthy social lives and successful careers well into their golden years. Your smile counts, regardless of your age. At Young General Dental, we believe your smile is your best asset.
Straight teeth are not only beautiful but also healthier. Properly aligned teeth can prevent such problems as uneven wear, cracked and fractured teeth, and gum recession, and can make you feel like a million bucks!
The best news is that you can have a straighter smile without brackets and wires, which are traditionally associated with kids and teens. We offer Invisalign clear braces in our Des Moines dental office. Invisalign eliminates the need for brackets and wires by using clear aligners to gradually move teeth into ideal alignment.
Often, patients who choose to straighten their teeth also like to whiten them, which can take years off your smile. Contact us to learn more about Invisalign and teeth whitening in Des Moines.
