How to Straighten Crooked Teeth Without Braces
The field of orthodontics has come a long way since the time when metal braces were the standard treatment to address teeth misalignment and bite irregularities. In fact, there are now a number of advanced techniques that can help you straighten crooked teeth without braces. Our dentists offer procedures that can provide you with more convenient, comfortable, and discreet solutions to your orthodontic concerns.
Two of the more popular options at True Dentistry include:
Invisalign® can correct mild to moderate teeth misalignment issues such as gaps, spaces, and crowding. This treatment can also improve overbite, underbite, and crossbite concerns. Invisalign® is a revolutionary orthodontic treatment system that utilizes no wires, brackets, or mechanical parts whatsoever. A series of clear plastic teeth aligners is custom-designed to gradually move your teeth into a straighter position over time. The aligners are removable, and so translucent that it would be very difficult for someone to see them on your teeth, even at a close distance.
Porcelain veneers offer another advanced solution in some cases of teeth misalignment. This option involves the placement of custom tooth restorations to mask signs of gaps, spaces, and misalignment. It does not require ongoing orthodontic treatment. A porcelain veneer is meticulously designed to look like a natural tooth. It covers only the visible part of the tooth, and can give your teeth a straighter, more even appearance while hiding areas affected by misalignment.
For more severe levels of misalignment, braces may be necessary; however, it’s important to remember that there are more discreet options available for those treatments, as well. True Dentistry offers clear braces, which are less noticeable than metal braces and are often more comfortable during the treatment process.
