Crooked teeth are more than just a cosmetic concern. Crooked teeth make brushing and flossing difficult and can allow food, debris, and plaque to build up between teeth. This build up can cause tooth enamel to wear away and can irritate gum tissue leading to tooth decay and gum disease.
Straightening Teeth without Braces
Porcelain veneers and dental crowns are common treatment options for straightening teeth without braces.
Porcelain veneers are a dental procedure in which a covering is placed over the outside (visible area) of the tooth. Veneers are usually only done to the part of the tooth that is visible when talking or smiling.
Crowns are used to restore and enhance teeth that are damaged or to take the place of missing teeth. A crown, also referred to as a cap, is used to entirely cover a damaged tooth. A crown not only strengthens a tooth, but it can also dramatically improve a tooth’s appearance, shape, and alignment.
