This Dog Has Braces and Is Smiling Big Time

BY: BUZZ60

They say that after a while pets start to resemble their owners, so if you've ever had your teeth straightened, your pooch better brace himself.

Like this pup, Wesley, who had such crooked teeth that he needed to be fit for braces not because his owners are perfectionists, but because he couldn't close his mouth!

That's when Dr. Moore from Harborfront Hospital for Animals in Michigan stepped in.

Some were shocked to learn that Dr. Moore is actually a "doggie dentist" who straightens the teeth of four-legged friends.

The dentist's Facebook page reassures visitors "orthodontia in pets is not normally for aesthetic purposes but because of health concerns."

The vet/dentist also takes care of root canals and oral surgery.

If you find your dog in need there are options out there, and dentists like Dr. Moore, to help with the pain.

Luckily Welsey's treatment should only last a few weeks and he won't have to endure an awkward teenage phase of being called Tinsel Teeth.
