Here at Elara Orthodontics, we see folks of all ages, from kids to grandparents, deciding it’s their time to shine. So, let’s get into why it’s never too late for you to have the smile you’ve always wanted.

Adult Teeth Straightening Options: Finding the Right Fit for You

As an adult, you may think it is late to straighten your teeth. However, you might get surprised to learn that there are options to help you lighting your teeth and to achieve the dream smile you always wanted.


Braces are not just for kids or teens. Those busy and metal braces you used to know are transformed to much cooler and comfortable ones today such as clear braces. These aligners are designed for people of all ages who want to fix their smiles, whether you’ve got a small gap or need a major fix.


If the idea of braces seems a bit much, say hello to Invisalign. What makes Invisalign different is that fact that they are clear aligners. They blend in so well with your natural smile that almost no one will realize you have them on, making your journey to straighter teeth as seamless as possible. While you will need to keep your braces on while brushing or eating food, with Invisalign you won’t need to pop them out before you eat or brush. This makes Invisalign a super convenient option. They’re very popular with adults and even teens.

Both of these options are fantastic for adults looking to give their smile a bit of a tweak or even a major overhaul. And the best part? You’re not doing it alone. At Elara Orthodontics, we’re with you every step of the way, ensuring your journey to a brighter smile is smooth and successful. To explore more about these options and how they can fit into your life, swing by our website and check out what we offer at Elara Orthodontics’ Aligners and Braces page.

So, what’s it going to be? Sleek braces or invisible aligners? Either way, we’re here to make sure you get that dazzling smile you deserve. Let’s get smiling, no matter your age!

How Long Will the Process Take?

Wondering how long you’ll be on the journey to a straighter smile? Well, it depends on what your teeth need. If you go with braces, you might be looking at wearing them for about 18 to 24 months. But everyone’s teeth are a bit different, so it could be more or less time.

If Invisalign sounds more your style, sometimes it can be a quicker trip to that perfect smile. Again, it really depends on your own set of chompers and what they need to get in line. The coolest part of all this? Once you’re done, you get to enjoy your awesome new smile for the rest of your life!
