More adults are getting braces

General & Cosmetic Dentist Serving Austin, Round Rock & Nearby Areas of Texas


It used to be a widely held belief that braces were only for children in their adolescence, but as more and more adults are feeling the pressure to look their best, many are looking to braces to give them a perfect smile.

The number of adults who have braces has increased by 25 percent since 1989, with 1 million adults in the U.S. now sporting braces to give them beautifully straight teeth. More high-tech options for braces may be an influencing factor for the number of adults now getting braces. With options like Invisalign, braces are now less noticeable, and many adults feel less embarrassed about having to wear them at the office and in their daily lives.

Invisalign is a great option for teenagers and adults who are looking to straighten their teeth in a discreet way. If you or someone you love is interested in getting Invisalign, please contact the Austin Invisalign specialists of BridgeView Dental at 512-347-8299.
