Why Straighten Crooked Teeth?
Crooked teeth are both a cosmetic and restorative dental concern. Because they are often difficult to clean effectively, patients with crooked teeth are more likely to develop tooth decay and gum disease. They are also more susceptible to TMJ-related disorders and bite discomfort when the teeth are prevented from making proper contact.
Correcting the appearance of crooked teeth can not only prevent the development of additional oral health problems but can improve a patient’s overall self-confidence and quality of life.
Straighter smiles are more visually appealing and can impact how you interact with others. Patients often say they feel more confident, both professionally and personally, after a cosmetic dental treatment to correct crooked teeth.
Options to Fix Crooked Teeth
Contrary to what many people think, not all cases of crooked teeth require braces. We offer options for straightening teeth without the use of braces. Straightening teeth without braces can be used when there are no health considerations that would require braces.
Common treatment options for straightening teeth without braces include the use of porcelain veneers and tooth bonding. Dr. Sarkarzadeh will carefully evaluate your condition to determine if you are a candidate.
Porcelain Veneers: They provide patients with the smile they desire and are expertly crafted to fit in with the rest of their natural teeth. A dental veneer is a thin piece of material that is fixed to the front of a crooked tooth to make it look like it’s not crooked. They are used for mild cases of misalignment. It is an almost painless procedure.
Tooth Bonding: Dental bonding is another procedure for minor misalignment issues. This highly malleable material is placed directly on your tooth and molded to align teeth. This is another relatively pain-free procedure that can be completed in a single visit.
Crooked Teeth FAQs
Do crooked teeth get worse over time?
Yes, over time crooked teeth may shift further and become more crooked. Gaps may become larger and teeth may shift further out of alignment as a patient ages. Crowding may get worse, and gaps may become larger.
What is the most common way to straighten your teeth?
The most common way to straighten teeth is to use traditional orthodontic braces. This is usually the least expensive and most common option for patients looking to straighten their teeth with orthodontic treatment. Although, it may take more time than more modern options.
Can teeth be straightened without braces?
There are many options that are available to patients that do not include traditional metal braces. The most common is Invisalign. Invisalign consists of a clear aligner that is worn for 22 hours a day and is easily removed to eat, drink, or speak. Other metal aligners may be available to straighten a patient’s teeth depending on the severity of the misalignment.
