Great smile. Great lifestyle. Great benefits for you.
With crooked teeth increased dental plaque buildup is common. Bacterial proliferation between teeth increases potential for gum disease and can lead to heart problems. Straight teeth eases hygiene and can improve your health.
Your smile is one of the first things people notice when meeting you. A smile is a big part of making a first impression. A smiling face tells people that you’re positive, outgoing and worth getting to know.
Emotions are contagious. When you smile your brain releases endorphins and serotonin which improves mood and relieves stress. Smiling makes you feel better inside and appear more attractive to others.
"Smile951 has been my family orthodontist for six plus years. Both my boys have beautiful teeth thanks to Dr. Pesh and his team. I have referred many of my friends & family to Smile951 and honestly I wouldn't go anywhere else. Dr. Pesh and his team are always courteous and professional to my boys and I. Seeing as many patients as he does he still makes us feel like we are his only one each time he sits down with us. Thank you for being our family orthodontist."
