Putting off straightening your front teeth because you can’t stomach the thought of braces? It’s time to learn a little more about the options that are really available. Metal brackets and wires aren’t the only way to realign teeth and improve your smile’s appearance. In the photo above, no orthodontics were involved in creating the final grin – instead, porcelain veneers accomplished this transformation.
In 2016, your cosmetic dental treatment can fit your personal needs. You don’t have to make compromises to see a more beautiful, fulfilling, and healthy smile – your treatment will incorporate what you want with what’s possible. Keep reading for some info on procedures that will straighten front teeth, and get in touch if you’d like to learn more or schedule a consultation. We’ll talk you through the process before getting started so that there are no surprises ahead (other than just how gorgeous your new smile will look).
Straighten Front Teeth the Simple Way
- Dental bonding – With bonding, you get the quickest possible cosmetic treatment. Tooth-shaped composite is shaped, applied, and hardened chairside, within the course of a single appointment. You don’t have to spend any time wearing temporaries or waiting for restorations to get back from the lab. Bonding can fill in gaps and resize or reshape teeth to improve overall symmetry.
- Porcelain veneers – Veneers accomplish so many different changes, and lead to a smile that really looks like your own and enhances your natural features. The porcelain material blends incredibly well with enamel, so your veneers become a fully integrated part of your smile. If your front teeth are crooked, they can be prepared and then paired with veneers to appear straighter and more tailored.
- Porcelain crowns – If you have sustained damage to your front teeth, whether it’s from decay or from physical wear, crowns may be the right solution for a combination aesthetic and restorative fix. Crowns add more bulk to teeth, so they’re ideal for teeth that need more significant restoration.
- Alternative orthodontics – Today’s orthodontic treatment doesn’t necessarily involve a mouth of metal. Options like Six Month Smiles and Invisalign straighten teeth while keeping treatment subtle and patient-oriented. If you’d like to learn whether you might be a candidate, just get in touch.
When you don’t love your teeth, you lose out on confidence, personal success, and general satisfaction with your life. Make a decision to make a change – it’s as simple as requesting a consultation.
