Backus Smiles proudly serves the Vestavia community of children and adults.

In fact, you are not alone. These days, adults make up nearly half of the orthodontic patients hoping to get the perfect smile they have always dreamed about. The era of the “metal mouth” is officially over, as braces have evolved significantly over the past 15 years. Backus Smiles is a cosmetic orthodontic practice, offering a variety of alternatives for the discerning adult. State-of-the-art all ceramic clear braces are smaller, more comfortable, and easier to clean than ever. In addition, our tooth colored wires and braces do not stain. If the idea of having something cemented to your teeth is a concern, consider Invisalign, the clear aligner system of choice for our patients. The clear trays are worn for 22 hours per day for 2 weeks per tray.

If treatment time is your main concern, we offer Propel, an FDA approved medical device used in conjunction with your orthodontic treatment. Propel provides a safe, comfortable, and affordable procedure to accelerate tooth movement. With Propel, orthodontic treatment time can be reduced by half.

Lastly, we offer the most esthetic orthodontic option on the market- Incognito or “hidden braces” that are bonded to the inside of a patient’s teeth. Incognito is 100% customized for each individual patient and delivers superior smiles. There are also health benefits for having a correct bite. With teeth that do not meet properly, are misaligned, or in cross-bite, there is an increased chance of plaque and tartar build-up. This build-up can contribute to gum disease and bone loss. Most adults want a beautiful smile, and adults know that it can make a huge difference in their personal and professional lives, increasing self-confidence and self-esteem.
