So I’m just over my two-month mark into having my Insignia braces and I feel well adjusted. I still can’t get over how quickly my teeth have moved and the amount of confidence I’ve already gained from seeing these changes so soon.

My smile has widened and more of my teeth can be seen when I smile. Overall, I think my smile looks better and I’m showing it more often now too!

Drs. Hess and VanLandschoot say my braces should be off by this fall as long as everything continues to go as planned and I continue to wear my elastics like I’ve been instructed. Check out my before and current pictures below and see the changes for yourself!

Many consumers are confused why they should choose an orthodontist in the Riverview, Lithia and Apollo Beach FL areas at Hess and VanLandschoot Orthodontics versus a general dentist or pedodontist to straighten their teeth with braces or Invisalign. Plain and Simple… the answer is experience and training.

Orthodontics can help children, teens, and adults of all ages look better throughout their lifetime. Adults today are much more aware than in the past of the importance of creating and maintaining a beautiful smile.

Orthodontists at Hess and VanLandschoot Orthodontics are dental specialists who have the education, experience and expertise to help patients of all ages attain properly aligned teeth and jaws for a lifetime of dental health.
