About Adult Orthodontic Treatment
We offer a variety of treatments designed for different age groups - including adults!
Orthodontic treatment at later stages in life can dramatically improve your personal appearance and self-esteem. There are even virtually invisible, individualized options available – no one even has to know you’re undergoing orthodontic treatment!
Improving the health of your teeth and gums is equally important.
Crooked teeth and a bad bite can contribute to gum and bone loss, tooth decay, abnormal wear of tooth enamel and surfaces, and can even cause headaches and jaw and joint (TMJ / TMD) pain.
Good News! Teeth can be straightened at any age if your gums and bone structure are healthy.
The techniques and appliances we use for straightening teeth greatly reduce discomfort levels, decrease the frequency of visits, shorten the time in treatment and may allow you to choose from several options. Your options for a beautiful smile and good dental health make a difference in your well-being and self-confidence. While braces for teens are more common, adults can benefit just as much from orthodontic treatment, as it’s never too late to improve your smile. Treatment options may include metal braces, clear braces, or Invisalign clear aligners. During your complimentary consultation, we will be able to determine the best possible approach for straightening your teeth for your individual needs!

Being a part of someone’s orthodontic journey is a dream come true and a position not taken lightly at Shoreline Orthodontics. My own personal orthodontic journey was both fascinating and inspiring and I wish to be able to impart the same experience to the patients here. Learn more
Dr. Megan McFadden
I really had fun going to the orthodontist when I was in braces. Everyone in the office was happy and enjoyed their work. This and the fact that my father was an oral surgeon inspired me to become a dentist and eventually an orthodontist. I like solving puzzles, thinking, planning and organizing all of which I am able to do as an orthodontist. More importantly, I enjoy getting to know people and making them smile. Learn more

I really care about the people who trust their teeth to me. When you come to Shoreline Orthodontics for treatment you are more than a patient, you are part of the family. Your relationship with everyone at Shoreline will extend beyond the office and beyond your time in treatment. Learn more
Dr. Erin Eyer
I have always wanted to be an orthodontist. While visiting my family home a few years ago, my husband came across an old school project of mine from grade three. In it, we were asked to describe what we wanted to do when we grew up. My answer was “I want to be an orthodontist because I like to make people smile”. Years have gone by and it turns out my answer is still the same. What I have learned now is that what we do at Shoreline is so much more than making people smile – it is helping people find their confidence – and that lasts a lifetime. Learn more
Dr. Nadine Williams
I grew up with a father that is a very passionate orthodontist in South Africa and was fascinated by the career from a young age. My interest might have made my braces experience more difficult for him, but I loved every moment of it. While studying for my dental boards in Australia, I shadowed an orthodontist and realized that was where my passion lay. Learn more
Dr. Silas Yeung
Growing up, I needed extensive dental care due to my addiction to candy (and possibly lack of brushing). These experiences helped me recognize the tremendous long-term impact dental professionals can make. After practicing general dentistry for a few years, I decided to become an orthodontist, stemming from my passion for problem-solving and making people smile. Learn more
