If you want to understand just how much the alignment of your teeth affects the appearance of your face, just look at before and after pictures of people who have had braces. The difference is astounding, and all because they made a subtle correction to their smile.
Part of the reason that people wear braces is to correct or prevent larger oral health problems, but an even bigger reason is that braces change the appearance of the entire face. This quick guide explains how.
It’s common for the human face to have a certain degree of asymmetry. But for certain people, this asymmetry is particularly pronounced, and it often starts in the mouth. Braces slowly and subtly restore symmetry so that people see your face for what it really is, and not for its one glaring flaw. Here are some common problems that braces change effectively:
In some ways, the health benefits of braces are also cosmetic benefits. For instance, after wearing braces, the teeth and gums are easier to clean effectively. That helps prevent tooth decay, gum disease, bad breath, and a host of other issues that can make you self-conscious about your smile. Healthy teeth are attractive teeth.
