Since many patients come to us wondering how they can fix their crooked teeth, we’d like to go over that right now.
Crooked Teeth Can Cause Problems with the Appearance of Your Smile
If you have teeth that are crooked, it can lead to various kinds of problems.
First of all, you can experience serious cosmetic flaws that affect the overall appearance of your smile. These can make you hesitant to laugh, smile, and speak around others, even family members and long-time friends. In addition, you may find it more difficult to make good first impressions in social settings and in your professional life.
Crooked Teeth Can Lead to Issues with Dental Health
In addition to the cosmetic flaws caused by malocclusion, there are dental health concerns to consider as well. Crooked teeth can lead to problems with the overall alignment and comfort of your bite, which can make eating foods painful and difficult. In addition, malocclusion can contribute to teeth grinding (bruxism) and even cause TMJ disorders to occur.
It’s for these reasons that patients should undergo advanced dental treatment when they have the opportunity.
Porcelain Veneers Can Treat Cosmetic Misalignment
When the issue with crooked teeth is predominantly cosmetic in nature, an ideal option to consider is porcelain veneers. These thin shells of dental ceramic fit over the front faces of the teeth, concealing flaws in size, shape, and alignment. The porcelain veneers blend in with natural tooth structure, which helps ensure they appear seamless after treatment.
One or more porcelain veneers may be necessary to treat cosmetic misalignment of the teeth, and the results can be quite dramatic. Many professionals and patients refer to porcelain veneers as “instant orthodontics” given how effective they are.
Orthodontic Treatment Can Address Health Issues
When teeth are seriously crooked or misaligned, “instant orthodontics” isn’t going to cut it. In such cases, traditional orthodontic care is most ideal. Whether it involves the use of braces or another form of teeth straightening technology, orthodontic care will improve overall dental alignment and improve the appearance and health of your smile in the process.
In addition to the use of braces, patients can also have clear braces used to address crooked teeth that cause significant dental health issues. This includes Invisalign®, an alternative to traditional braces that uses clear plastic aligners to reposition the teeth.
