Options For Correcting Crooked Teeth

January 25, 2022by Care And Cure Dental

A winning smile is one the best social assets. Teeth that are a little ‘crooked’ or ‘spaced’ or ‘tilted’ are often what prevent a smile from being ideal. The upper front teeth lie in a crucial aesthetic zone and make up the essence of a smile. Correcting the appearance of teeth positioned anaesthetically can be done by a number of ways.

Orthodontic treatment: Orthodontic treatment is the ideal way of correcting tooth positions and alignments, but is lengthy, and some adult patients find the idea of wearing braces unacceptable. Alternatives such as ceramic brackets and lingual braces have greatly improved its aesthetics. The advent of ‘Invisalign’; a system of removable custom- made invisible orthodontic appliances has revolutionised the comfort, feasibility and acceptability of orthodontics for an increasing number of people. Invisalign is increasingly popular in-spite of being more expensive, and is best suited for cases with minor to moderate orthodontic discrepancies. Yet, a lot of people simply can’t commit to the time span involved in orthodontic therapy.

Dental veneers: “A lot of people often believe that any misaligned teeth can only be corrected only by wearing braces as a part of years long orthodontic treatment,” says Dr.Tejal Thorve, Dentist in Dombivli, “when in fact cosmetic dentistry can often offer a fast and satisfying alternative for many, though not all people.”  Dental veneers are minimally invasive restorations, which can be used to mask minor discrepancies of teeth placement and shapes, especially for the front teeth. These involve a minimal and painless preparation of tooth structure so that custom-made esthetic veneers can be bonded on to the teeth. Small gaps, overlaps and unequal sized teeth, can often be beautifully masked by well-designed veneers. Veneers are designed from ceramic or composite. Ceramic veneers such as Emax can be computer designed and milled and offer the best esthetics. Composite veneers, also highly esthetic, are a more inexpensive solution. Veneers need basic care like avoiding biting on them with very hard food, preventing staining by not regularly having coloured beverages and when cared for, can last for above a decade on an average. Some people have ‘high smile lines’, which means their gum line is visible on smiling and a balance of the gum display with that of teeth is crucial to a pleasing smile. Dental veneers are often clubbed with cosmetic gum contouring for achieving an overall balanced and pleasing smile. A cosmetic dentist will perform a ‘smile analysis’ and help you choose the right treatment plan. Call our dental office clinic for more information.
