Teeth can be straightened using either orthodontics or porcelain veneers or a combination of both. Only mild to moderate crowding or protrusion can be aligned with veneers alone, but orthodontics can straighten any teeth, however severely misaligned.
Orthodontic treatments are another method to straighten or move teeth by wearing braces, helping to improve the appearance of teeth. If you have crowded or crooked teeth, orthodontic treatment will not only improve the appearance of your smile, but also help you bite more evenly and therefore help you maintain good oral hygiene.There are many options of Orthodontic treatment to suit your budget and lifestyle. These include:
These are the metal brackets and wires that most people picture when they hear the word "braces." However, modern brackets are smaller and less noticeable. Least expensive type; colored bands ;D. They are noticeable type of braces.
Ceramic braces are the same size and shape as metal braces, except that they are tooth colored or clear brackets that blend in to teeth. They are less noticeable than metal braces. They move teeth much faster than clear plastic aligners. But, expensive than metal braces. The ceramic brackets can stain easily if clients don't care for them well.
Clear Aligners straighten teeth by using clear, invisible aligners that are custom made for your teeth. This treatment is perfect for adults that want to change their smile without affecting their lifestyle. It is removable, invisible and comfortable. To achieve a straight smile, the average treatment time is 14 months. It is a slower process to other options due to it being an aligner rather than a fixed brace.
Braces are no longer just for the children. Adult orthodontics is now a big part of our treatment plans, especially with the advent of the more aesthetic "invisible" braces.
