Do you hide your smile because of crooked teeth?
Crooked and misaligned teeth are not just a cosmetic concern, they can also be the underlying cause for dental health problems. Crooked teeth can be difficult to clean effectively, increasing the risk for tooth cavities and gum disease. They can also impact the balance of the bite, leading to disorders of the temporomandibular joint, or TMJ.
Dr. Gauthier or Dr. Murray will evaluate your oral health and bite to determine the best option for straightening your smile and supporting your long term dental health. We offer treatment options for achieving a straighter, healthier smile without the use of braces for patients with mild to moderate cosmetic concerns.
Straightening Teeth Without Braces
Your Russell Street dentist will work with you to develop a treatment plan that will meet your cosmetic goals for a straighter smile. Depending on your specific needs, treatment options can include:
- Cosmetic tooth bonding: if there are minor imperfections or damage affecting your smile, tooth bonding can offer an economical alternative.
- Dental crowns: when one tooth is rotated or misshapen and lending a crooked appearance, a custom dental crown can be placed to improve the aesthetics of your smile.
- Dental veneers: porcelain veneers will offer a high quality, lasting treatment option for making over your smile with beautiful results.
