Do you hide your smile because of crooked teeth?
Teeth that are crooked, or malocclusion, can impact your appearance AND your dental health. Crooked teeth can cause lasting problems and should be addressed for a healthy and comfortable smile. They can increase your risk for complex dental problems down the road.
Losing confidence in your smile?
Smile Dental Group offers orthodontics and is a leading Invisalign provider in Palmdale, East Lancaster, and West Lancaster. Our dentists can help children and adults straighten their smiles and improve their oral health with personalized care for their unique needs. There are also alternative cosmetic dental treatments that can be used to straighten teeth that are crooked but not affecting the function or fit of the bite. Your dentist will meet with you to evaluate your needs and discuss your cosmetic goals.
Why Straighten Crooked Teeth?
Crooked teeth can create a range of problems for the health and function of your smile. When teeth are not aligned properly, they can be difficult to clean effectively and are more prone to decay and gum disease as plaque builds up in areas difficult to reach or between the teeth.
Malocclusion or crooked teeth can also be the cause of a bite problem and TMJ related disorders. If teeth are not positioned properly and do not make contact effectively the bite is out of balance and can lead to stress in the jaw joints and muscles. Patients may grind their teeth, clench their jaw and experience cracked or worn teeth over time.
Straightening your smile will improve the fit and function of your bite in addition to enhancing your overall appearance. We offer complete orthodontic treatment with traditional braces, oral appliances, and Invisalign. Our team will work with you to determine the most suitable option for your needs.
Straightening Teeth without Braces
If your bite is stable, comfortable and functional there are alternative treatment options for addressing mild cases of crooked teeth. We can use:
Dental Crowns: To cover the misshapen tooth like a cap.
Tooth Bonding: This procedure can reshape the tooth without damaging natural tooth structure.
Dental Veneers: This is more for minor crooked teeth issues. We recommend straightening your teeth before considering cosmetic solutions.
