Hello.. For aligning your teeth and getting your dream smile braces is the treatment of choice for you. It is called as orthodontic treatment. Your age is never a concern with orthodontic treatment as you can put braces at any age. If you are concerned regarding the visibility of the braces,  we have some great options for you that would make your treatment partially or completely invisible! The time frame generally depends on the severity of your condition. Although we have some braces that would reduce the overall duration of the treatment.
