The face is mirror of one's soul and pleasing, confident smile reflects the personality. Severely proclined teeth or rabbit teeth don't allow you to smile openly nor is it possible to hide them behind lips. Overlapping, crooked teeth are unsightly too. Orthodontic treatment is the best natural way to get them straight.

The science has evolved over years to provide best aesthetics during and after treatment. The aim is to achieve aesthetic harmony while maintaining structural balance and functional efficiency. As said by Ralph Waldo Emerson Love of beauty is taste. The creation of beauty is art.
