If you would like to improve the appearance of crooked front teeth, you have several options available to you. The right option for you will depend on your desired outcome as well as the amount of time and money you’re willing to invest in a straight, beautiful smile. During your initial consultation, Dr. Heather Fleschler will review these options with you in detail and recommend the right solution to address your unique goals and concerns.
If you would like to correct the underlying alignment issues that are responsible for your crooked teeth, then you may want to consider Invisalign. Invisalign is a great alternative to traditional braces that use a series of clear plastic aligners to gradually straighten your teeth over time. Each aligner is worn for approximately two weeks and then you’ll move onto the next aligner in the series, repeating this process until your teeth have shifted to their desired position. Since your Invisalign aligners are clear, they’ll be virtually undetectable to others, making it a very discrete treatment.
If you don’t want to invest the time and money associated with lengthy orthodontic treatment, then you may want to consider porcelain veneers. Dr. Fleschler can place porcelain veneers over the surface of your front teeth to make them appear straight. This treatment can be completed within two office visits, which is why veneers are commonly referred to as “instant orthodontics.” Keep in mind that porcelain veneers only give you the appearance of straight teeth. You’ll need to undergo orthodontic treatment to correct the functional issues associated with crooked teeth.
