Growing up with crooked teeth is no fun. Many people are not blessed with nice straight teeth and even if they start out that way, by the time you are a teenager, they may change and start moving in all directions. If you thought the only option for straightening crooked teeth was expensive orthodontist treatments, you are wrong. There are other cosmetic treatment options available that are not as time consuming and can give you the smile you have always dreamed of. Porcelain Veneers One of the most versatile dental appliances in use is the porcelain veneer, also known as instant orthodontics. Veneers are extremely thin glass coverings that can be formed to fit over your teeth, providing them with a new, clean, and bright surface. If you teeth are not too crooked and no major realignment is necessary, porcelain veneers can be put on your teeth to straighten them. The veneer can be shaped to add tooth material where it is needed and create a new smile line. The procedure is quick and relatively painless. Invisalign A new option for straightening teeth is perfect for busy adults who do not want to spend time and money on an orthodontist. Using a series of custom fitted plastic trays, Invisalign aligners will help straighten your teeth in small increments. Every two weeks, a new tray is worn, which is geared toward moving your teeth into proper alignment. The trays are virtually invisible when worn and can easily be removed when you eat and for cleaning.
