Which Teeth Straightening Method Works Best For Me?

Are you considering straightening your teeth? Traditional braces, veneers, or Invisalign? Do you know about the different options and which one will be best for you?

Traditional braces have been the most effective and the most common method to straighten teeth for many years. However, Some people are embarrassed to have their mouths full of metal braces. For this reason dental practitioners have invented ways to help people straighten their teeth without the use of unsightly metal and wire braces. If the idea of having a mouth full of metal is unappealing to you then you may want to look into the less noticeable options.

When people come to us and ask about having their teeth straightened we start with an examination that helps us determine what the best options are for them. Depending on your teeth problems, we can recommend a few methods like veneers, Invisalign treatment, or cosmetic bonding. Cosmetic bonding is used for very minimal crooked teeth. The materials used are tooth-colored and can be applied directly to the teeth. When bonding is not for you, we can try veneers. Veneers are used to cover the facial surface (front part) of your teeth to look like your natural teeth. Invisalign, on the other hand, is a removable clear plastic aligner that works in a shorter amount of time than traditional braces.

To find out if you are a good candidate for one of these treatments, see your dentist. To learn more about dental care and how to straighten your teeth without braces watch this video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1K43TpiIMwk
