Porcelain Veneers: “Instant Orthodontics”
If your twisted tooth is only slightly misaligned compared to the surrounding teeth in your mouth, we may be able to address the issue in an instant with porcelain veneers. Veneers are shells that are custom-crafted from the finest-grade porcelain to be bonded to the front surfaces of the teeth. They are generally used to conceal cosmetic flaws such as cracks, chips, discoloration, and imperfections in size and shape. However, they can also be created to address minor flaws in the orientation of teeth, as well. In other words, a single veneer can be manufactured so that, when it is placed on a tooth that is not facing perfectly outward in relation to the adjacent teeth, it will create the appearance that the tooth is aligned in the proper direction.
This solution is best suited for cases of minor misalignment.
Invisalign®: The Clear Alternative to Traditional Braces
For more severe cases of misalignment, Invisalign® clear aligners offer an aesthetically pleasing alternative to traditional metal braces. Invisalign® aligners are made of a virtually invisible plastic that is non-abrasive and bio-friendly. You will receive a series of aligners customized to your mouth. Each aligner in the series will be designed to move your twisted tooth closer to its optimal position. You will replace each aligner with the next in the series every two weeks. While you are undergoing treatment, you will be able to remove the aligners for eating, brushing, and flossing. Best of all, your smile will be unaffected by the clear aligners as they will be practically undetectable to the human eye!
