Treatment Options for Crooked Teeth
Premier Dental Care offers multiple treatments for patients with crooked teeth:
An alternative to traditional metal braces, Invisalign utilizes clear aligners that gradually shift teeth every few weeks. The aligners can be removed for eating and brushing teeth and tend to be more comfortable than metal braces because they don’t irritate gums. Invisalign has a shorter treatment time than traditional options and can provide straighter teeth to patients in six to eighteen months.
Tooth bonding uses composite resin to change the size and shape of teeth. The resin also blends in with teeth for a more natural look. Tooth bonding is less permanent and more economical than porcelain veneers. This treatment can be a great option for patients who may not want to commit to the more permanent option of porcelain veneers.
Made of ultra-thin, high-quality porcelain ceramic, porcelain veneers can be a great aesthetic treatment for crooked teeth. Porcelain veneers are color-matched to natural teeth so that they can blend in perfectly. This treatment bonds porcelain ceramic to teeth for a straighter and brighter appearance.
