An alternative to traditional metal braces, Invisalign uses clear aligners that gradually shift teeth every two weeks. The aligners can be removed for eating and brushing teeth. They also tend to be more comfortable than metal braces because they do not irritate the gums. Invisalign has a shorter treatment time than traditional options and can provide straighter teeth to patients in about six to eighteen months, depending on the patient’s needs.
Tooth bonding uses composite resin to change the size and shape of teeth. This resin also blends in with teeth for a more natural and aesthetically pleasing look. Tooth bonding procedure is less permanent and more economical than options like porcelain veneers. This treatment can be a great option for patients who may not want to commit to a more permanent dental treatment option.
Porcelain veneers are a great aesthetic treatment for crooked teeth because they are made of ultra-thin, high-quality porcelain. Porcelain veneers are color-matched to natural teeth so that they can blend in perfectly. Bonding porcelain ceramic to teeth results in a straighter and brighter appearance.
