Chances are, there are a few things you wish you could change about your smile. A few crooked teeth here, a gap there, or even more significant problems like jaw alignment issues or TMJ - but if you're like many adults, you may think the time has come and gone for such changes. After all, aren't braces just for teenagers? Well, we've got news for you! The truth is, healthy teeth can be moved at any age, so you're never too old for braces. And if you're interested in improving your smile for a lifetime, your Vancouver orthodontist, Dr. Lauren Cai, can help!


Orthodontic Treatment for Any Age

More and more adults are discovering that contrary to popular belief, orthodontic treatment is available to almost anyone. You're never "too old" for orthodontics, and in fact, nearly a quarter of our patients are adults! Adult orthodontic treatment is a convenient, effective way to improve your smile and improve your life, and thanks to advances in orthodontic technology, it's never been easier to achieve.

If you remember thick, clunky strips of metal from your teenage years, you'll be pleasantly surprised by the look of today's braces. Modern braces are sleek, small, and comfortable, making them feasible even for busy adult professionals. Plus, with alternatives like the virtually invisible Invisalign treatment, almost no one has to know you're straightening your smile. We can work with you to choose a treatment that works for your lifestyle and design a personalized treatment plan, giving you the freedom to improve your smile with a minimum impact on your life. Whether you're a stay-at-home parent or climbing the corporate ladder, we can help you improve your smile through orthodontics!
