It is official, adults can get braces and still be cool and famous! Tom did it in 2002, at 40 years of age, in between filming Minority Report and The Last Samurai. Compare his smile in Jerry Maguire to his new pearly whites in Valkyrie - not bad Tom, who's your Somerville dentist!
We'll I am certainly not Tom Cruise, though I think my wife wishes I am, but I too am 40 and I am sporting some shiny metal braces myself. Granted, I did select white brackets to hide what bling I could, and as long as I don't eat Indian food, the color tends to remain white.
So why did I not chose Invisalign if I am so concerned with my smile - I was also not a candidate based on the way my teeth needed to move. I didn't just get braces for my smile. The biggest reason was to get my bite aligned so I would stop cracking my teeth. And it's working - after 24 months I can already tell a major difference in my contacts. A pearly white smile will be an add on to my new ability to bit into a steak or an apple.
And its not just the men that are doing it. Famous No Doubt lead singer Gwen Stephani shocked her fans in 1999 when she posed for this metalic smile. No she did not go to a Somerville Dentist, more likely someone in Hollywood.
More and more adults are opting for braces to impove their smile and bite. The way braces are priced, they are really very affordable. One upfront cost to get the brackets on followed by 12-24 months of small payments. It's not a bad way to go and you can solve a lot of dental problems by fixing your bite. And if Invisalign works for you, even better!
At West Somerville Dental, we do not provide orthodontic services, but we work with an orthodontic genious. In my opinion, Dr. Mo Rizkallah (Dr. Riz) is the best Somerville Orthodontist in town - litterally a few blocks down. He not only takes care of me, but my kids and my friends. In fact, one of my best friends (mid 40's) got his braces on today and he reported around 6pm that all was well.
Dr. Riz works directly with our Somerville dentist, Dr. Alvi and our Prosthodontist, Dr. Mediouni to treatment plan our cases - which is the best practice for cooperative orthodontics and prosthodontic care. Visit Dr. Riz's website at www.veryniceteeth.com to schedule your Complimentry Orthodontic Exam. Tell him Rob from West Somerville Dental sent you and they will roll out the red carpet.
So give yourself a reason to smile again and get those braces on! And if you're looking for a great Somerville dental practice, give us a call or register online for an appointment.
