If done correctly, orthodontic treatment will leave you with a dazzling smile that will enhance your facial aesthetics. If done wrong...just the opposite will occur. DO NOT allow the extraction of bicuspid teeth prior to having orthodontic treatment. I have written extensively on this subject if you want further clarification. Good luck!
