Invisalign is a modern way for patients to address their orthodontic concerns. This discreet and removable treatment allows patients to realign crooked teeth comfortably. Because Invisalign aligners are removable, patients can brush and floss their teeth and keep their aligners fresh. Unlike metal braces, Invisalign does not come with dietary restrictions. Patients also do not need to visit our office as often for adjustments, which are required to tighten the metal brackets in traditional braces.
Porcelain veneers are an excellent option for patients who want to conceal their crooked teeth. Porcelain veneers are thin, custom-made shells that can be attached to your natural teeth. This means that you will get improved aesthetics from the veneers while maintaining the functionality of your natural smile beneath the veneers. Patients love porcelain veneers because it offers them the opportunity to take control of what they would like their smiles to look like and get the final results that they want.
Teeth bonding may also help patients with crooked teeth conceal minor gaps within their smile.
