Kenilworth, IL – Everybody wants a gorgeously straight smile that they can show off, but the idea of months in orthodontic treatment may not seem appealing. Many people may look for other ways to get the smile they want. And, if their only goal in mind is a pretty smile, they may think a cosmetic option such as veneers is ideal. After all, veneers only take a couple visits to your dentist’s office to change the appearance of your smile.
But, while you may think the only thing that is being accomplished during orthodontic treatment is a more cosmetically pleasing smile, you would be wrong. Orthodontic treatment doesn’t just create prettier smiles, it creates healthier and more stable bites.
