Dentist in Charlotte, NC: Providing Dental Braces to Restore Smiles

While most individuals would normally go to orthodontists for their dental braces, a woman from the state of Washington thought she could have one by herself. Using colorless hairbands to create do-it-yourself braces, the woman reportedly closed a gap at the center of her front teeth in 44 days.

The six instructional videos she posted on YouTube to document her process reportedly went viral for having more than 100,000 views and earned a following. The medical community, however, is wary of this trend, stating that DIY braces come with immense risks such as severe damage to the teeth and gums even if the treatment may appear to be a success on the surface.
