If you have one or more teeth in the smile that are crooked, you may be well aware of how it impacts your self-confidence. But were you aware that cosmetic dentistry has become more affordable than ever and is no longer only for celebrities and upper-class patients? By working with our cosmetic dentists at Marsh Cove Dental and Implant Center in Naples, FL, you can learn the three popular methods available for addressing these teeth and improving the smile’s appearance.
What are some treatment options for crooked teeth?
- Composite resin bonding. With composite resin bonding, you have a reliable and affordable option for disguising issues such as crooked teeth. The treatment can be performed in a single appointment and is an economical option for many of our patients who need an option that is also cost-effective. Composite resin bonding can last a few years with proper care, though it is susceptible to staining and discoloration.
- Porcelain veneers. Another option to cover and disguise these imperfections is with porcelain veneers. These are thin shells of porcelain custom-made for you and bonded onto the front of the tooth. It is an effective way to cover crooked teeth as well as permanently stained teeth, chipped teeth, or gapped teeth.
- Orthodontia. If you have one or more crooked teeth, or other alignment issues such as gaps or overcrowding, you may be a great candidate for orthodontic treatment. We can refer you to a specialist in the area that is respected and trusted in the community and provides solutions for you regarding realigning the teeth and improving the appearance of the smile. If you have severe misalignment, you may benefit from traditional metal braces, or with mild to moderate malocclusion, clear aligner therapy may be an option.
