Do you have a crooked tooth that you want to be fixed? Are overcrowded teeth impacting the look of your smile? Dr. Lauren Francis treats crooked teeth in Hampstead, NC. Invisalign, dental bonding, and porcelain veneers can all be used to improve the appearance and function of the smile. Tooth bonding and dental veneers offer more cosmetic results, and Invisalign aligners are used for more moderate orthodontic concerns. Learn more about each of these dental solutions below.
Treatments for Crooked Teeth
There are several crooked teeth treatments that we offer to address slight misalignment or orthodontic issues:
- Invisalign: Clear Invisalign aligners gradually straighten crooked and misaligned teeth. We take dental impressions to ensure that the aligners fit properly. Once complete, each set of aligners are worn for several weeks and then switched out for the next pair. Invisalign aligners are removable so patients can eat without dietary restrictions.
- Porcelain Veneers: Dental veneers are thin shells of porcelain ceramic that are bonded to the front of teeth. Patients who have cosmetic imperfections like slightly crooked teeth benefit from veneers. Veneers are a long-lasting cosmetic treatment that can be color-matched to natural teeth.
- Tooth Bonding: Dental bonding treatment is similar to veneers in that we can use bonding material to address single crooked or misaligned teeth. The bonding material is biocompatible and may also be shade-matched for a natural look. Tooth bonding is a more economical treatment than dental veneers and offers a quicker treatment time.
