Are Crooked Teeth Hurting Your Smile?

Your goal should be to keep your teeth as healthy as possible, but there is nothing wrong with being concerned about the appearance of your smile. Dental discoloration, along with dental damage, are common issues that can cause cosmetic dental concerns. Of course, many people are frustrated by smile flaws caused by crooked teeth. This issue can create an uneven quality to your smile, which can hurt its attractiveness. This problem can also raise your cavity risk, and cause you to have an uneven bite, which can lead to stress on your jaw. Using Invisalign can help you discreetly fix this problem, and make a significant improvement to how you look.

Starting The Invisalign Treatment Process

At the start of your Invisalign treatment process, your dentist will perform initial examinations of your smile, and take digital impressions. Those impressions will be used to plan your treatment, and to construct your aligners. You will receive a series of aligners, made from clear plastic, which will gradually shift your teeth into position.

What To Expect During Your Invisalign Adjustment

Invisalign offers the benefit of inconspicuous orthodontic treatment, but you can also enjoy how this procedure is less intrusive when it comes to your daily life. Metal braces are permanently affixed to teeth, but your Invisalign aligner can be removed whenever you eat, or when you clean your teeth. This approach also eliminates the need for any manual adjusting, so you will have fewer appointments to make with your dentist over the course of your adjustment.

Porcelain Veneers May Be Able To Help You With Crooked Or Crowded Teeth

In some cases, patients can enjoy a treatment for crooked teeth that is less time-consuming than an Invisalign adjustment. You can have your dentist evaluate your smile, and see if your issues with overlaps or spacing can be fixed with the placement of porcelain veneers. Veneers offer a means of making dynamic cosmetic dental improvements to a person’s smile.
