How important is your smile? For most, it's up there on the list of things they notice first about others and themselves. 

A recent study conducted by Leeds and Central Lancashire University found that a smile is one of the top factors considered before deciding if someone is attractive or not. The study presented 150 images of men and women to participants. Evenly spaced white teeth were deemed the most attractive quality.

As researchers sought to find out why this was true, they determined teeth can be compared to the equivalent of a peacock's tail. A peacock's tail has often been known as a sign of health and superior genetic quality, one that many use to find their mate. For humans, the same seems to hold true for teeth. 

If your teeth aren't as perfect as you would like, there are many options to choose from to fix any present or underlying issue.

At Upper Eastside Orthodontists, there are many treatments available to enhance the appearance of your smile that also work to correct some pressing orthodontic health issues. Our options for teeth-straightening braces include iBraces, Invisalign, ceramic and traditional metal. 

iBraces​, also known as lingual braces, are one of the newest additions to the orthodontic field, providing an invisible form of treatment. They are completely customizable to each patient's mouth, creating a perfect, comfortable fit every time. Although they may new, they are just as effective as traditional orthodontic treatment methods.
