Crooked teeth, besides being aesthetically displeasing, can also cause other dental health issues. Many adults wish to fix crooked teeth but don’t want to wear braces. Metal braces are uncomfortable, make chewing and speaking difficult, and are often embarrassing for adult patients.
Shiflet, Cox & Morgan offer a range of options to straighten teeth and fix misaligned bites other than metal braces:
Porcelain Veneers are thin, translucent shells that cover the front and sides of the teeth. They require little preparation to the tooth and are not permanent. Porcelain veneers are effective for treating crooked teeth because they provide a uniform and symmetrical appearance to the teeth. Veneers can be used to reshape teeth as well as close gaps between teeth and mask minor discolorations.
Dental crowns can be used as a restorative treatment for crooked teeth. The dental crown covers the entire tooth like a cap, reshaping the tooth and closing gaps between teeth. Porcelain dental crowns are available to provide a natural look.
Invisalign offers the advantages of braces without the hassle, permanence, and headache. Invisalign, specifically for patients over 18, is a series of removable, invisible trays that are changed every few weeks. They gradually shift teeth to form a more aligned bite and fix crooked teeth.
