Crooked teeth can cause many issues, not just for your confidence but also for your health. When your teeth are not properly aligned, there is a greater chance of your bite not being properly aligned. When your bite is out of place, it can cause issues such as pain, headaches, grinding of your teeth, clenching, and even TMD/TMJ. By correcting your cooked smile, not only will it restore your confidence, but it will prevent many associated health issues as well.
What are my options for fixing crooked teeth?
There are many different options for fixing crooked teeth, or even a single crooked tooth. The first option is with porcelain dental veneers. Veneers are thin pieces of porcelain material that are placed on the front surface of teeth in order to give a whiter, straighter smile. Veneers allow for slight alterations to the size, shape and color of the tooth. Veneers are ideal for fixing less complicated crooked teeth.
The second option for fixing crooked teeth is with Invisalign clear braces. Invisalign braces are the clear alternative to braces and are a discreet orthodontic treatment that will give you the beautiful smile that you’ve always wanted. Invisalign uses a series of clear, custom made, removable aligners that are designed to fit your teeth. The invisible aligners are changed every two weeks, so that your teeth move little by little, gradually straightening your teeth.
