Beauty is in the eye of the Orthodontist

Dr. Patel believes that Orthodontics is as much an A-R-T as it is a science.  When designing your smile, he will take into account your unique facial proportions when aligning your teeth, bite and your smile. In no time at all you’ll have the smile, the facial profile and aesthetics you’ve always dreamed about! 

When making your decision, be sure to look at the big picture.  Don’t focus solely on what you will experience during your time in treatment OR what appliances will be used OR the lowest possible cost of treatment OR the shortest possible treatment option, but consider on what you will look like for the rest of your life!

Deciding what type of treatment you want can be a difficult decision. Braces, Aligners, Removable appliances or Hybrid options. Let Dr. Patel review your individual case and provide you with his recommendation(s) of what will be the best for you and your final treatment outcomes, then the decision of what type of orthodontic treatment you prefer is yours!

A Beautiful S-M-I-L-E is more than just straight teeth. 

If you look at popular personality magazines, or celebrity models, you will notice that smile catches your eyes first. A fuller smile with a wider arch is more attractive and adds to the smile’s appeal.


Smiles with a broad arch show more teeth and fill the corners of the mouth more fully. The result is a more natural and appealing smile. A broad arch also provides facial support, which more the face a more youthful appearance.


Teeth may appear relatively straight, while still being tipped in or flared out. Having the teeth upright in correct position helps the jaws to function properly and can protect against wear caused by improper teeth. Upright teeth can also enhance a smil’s appeal.


An important aspect of a beautiful smile is the smile arch. A smile arc is created when the curve of the teeth follows the curve of the lower lip, creating a natually beautiful and flowing smile.

Gummy Smile

A smile with gingival excess, also known as ‘gummy smile’, can distract from the natural beauty of the teeth and face.
