Before and after braces: Incredible Transformations of People Who Wore Braces

We’re all familiar with the term “Hollywood smile” – those straight, white, perfect smiles we see on television and in glossy magazines. Some people are born with the perfect smile, but others need the assistance of an orthodontist to achieve their ideal smile. Today, oral medicine is advanced enough to offer a treatment for physical problems created by crooked teeth and restoring the confidence necessary to smile when you want.

Braces are worn for a variety of reasons. The benefits of braces go far beyond aesthetics alone. By aligning the teeth with braces, you’ll be able to chew food better. Additionally, it prevents cavities, periodontal disease, grinding, and chipping. Some people get them to correct overbites and underbites. Orthopedic braces are also used to address disorders of the jaw joints or jaw position. Some people get braces to better their orofacial appearance. While braces can be uncomfortable, the resulting perfect smile is more than worth it. The braces apply mild pressure on the teeth to shift them into the proper position as the interlocking wires are tightened. Despite the time and discomfort involved in the process, most people still value those inconveniences.

While it’s best to get dental treatment when you’re young, you can still ask a dental professional what they can do for you at any age.

Here below are some incredible before and after photos that perfectly depict the magic of braces. These amazing transformations are achieved through wearing orthodontic braces and, in some cases, even dental surgeries. Vote your favorites.
