Do you have crooked teeth? Gaps between your teeth? Overlapping teeth?  Tooth misalignment can give you a smile you don’t love, but you may not want to commit to braces to get that coveted straight smile. Thank goodness for cosmetic dentistry. The right procedure will deliver straight teeth and then some.

The Magic of Porcelain Veneers

There is one cosmetic dentistry procedure that gives you a flawless smile, the most bang for your buck, and strong, natural-looking teeth: porcelain veneers. This comprehensive treatment covers whatever aesthetic complaints you have. Any unsightly misalignment will be covered up with veneers, plus:

  • Tooth stains
  • Chips
  • Short teeth
  • Broken teeth
  • Worn teeth
  • Gapped teeth
  • Short teeth

Veneers are custom-designed to look and feel like natural teeth. They are personalized in color, size, shape, and translucency (the way they reflect light) so they look like teeth you were born with and flatter your appearance in all ways.

A talented cosmetic dentist knows that the construction of the veneers must consider your age, gender, mouth size, face shape, skin coloring, and more. Every little detail is an essential part of the whole when it comes to a successful smile makeover.

The straight smile veneers gives you eliminates the need for braces. It usually takes only two visits to your dentist to complete the veneers procedure, so if you’re in a hurry and want ultimate perfection, this may be the right treatment for you.

Modern Braces Make Orthodontics Easy

Of course, if you are willing to put in the time and effort to straighten your teeth at a slower pace, Invisalign braces are the way to go, especially for adults.

Through customized clear aligners, Invisalign gradually moves teeth into their proper positions. The aligners are so discreet that no one will ever know you’re wearing Invisalign. Plus, Invisalign is removed for meals – with no restrictions on what you can eat, you’re not giving up anything when you have braces, only gaining a straight smile.

Invisalign is a good idea for adults who not only have crooked teeth but for those who have jaw alignment problems. If you suffer from TMJ problems, clench or grind your teeth, or have gum recession and worn tooth enamel, there’s something that isn’t quite right with your bite. A course of Invisalign can correct these problems and give you straight teeth too.
