As much as we may not like it, many of us are just going to have crooked teeth. While we may all fantasize about having that fantastic celebrity smile--we must also keep in mind that almost nobody is born with perfectly straight teeth. But you can choose to see an orthodontist and get yourself a set of braces that will certainly straighten those canines out. These four steps will show you exactly how to get braces and ultimately gain one more step in having that perfect smile that you so desire.
Things You'll Need
- Dentist referral
- Substantial budget
- Ability to sit for long periods of time
Research orthodontists or get a referral. The best way to find the right orthodontist is usually by getting a referral from your general dentist. Or, you can research one on your own.
Set up a time for a preliminary appointment. Once you have found an orthodontist, call them and set up a time to come in and meet with the doctor for a preliminary appointment.
Meet with the orthodontists and discuss your options. When you meet with your doctor make sure that you ask them any questions that you may have regarding the procedure and daily care as well as total costs of the treatment.
Make an appointment to get braces. Now that you have found a doctor and you are armed with knowledge, it is time to take that budget and go and get the pair of braces that you have been wanting.
