Cosmetic Dentistry Options for Teeth Straightening

Cosmetic Dentistry Newtown, CT

Cosmetic dentistry is a welcome solution for people with teeth alignment issues. Most people do not have the gift of straight teeth. Crooked or misshapen teeth are commonplace in various corners of the country and the world. While it is true that crooked teeth affect dental esthetics, uneven teeth can cause dental health problems, as well. Thanks to advancements in cosmetic dentistry, you can achieve straighter teeth. If you want to have your teeth straightened, let us explore the available options.

Dental bonding

To address uneven teeth, cosmetic dentistry offers dental bonding. During this procedure, the dentist applies a tooth-colored composite substance to the patient’s tooth. The dentist then sculpts it and hardens it with a curing light. Dental bonding is a treatment that lasts for about 30-60 minutes. It is an inexpensive and effective way to correct dental issues without removing any of the patient’s enamel.

Porcelain veneers

Advances in cosmetic dentistry give patients porcelain veneers to straighten teeth. Veneers can also fill in gaps between teeth. Dentists bond these thin, porcelain shells to the front of the patient’s tooth or teeth. The shells have the color of natural teeth. This makes porcelain veneers good dental aesthetic solutions. Dental veneers are also resistant to staining and can last for up to 30 years.

Traditional braces

Cosmetic dentistry has always had traditional braces as an effective solution to misaligned or uneven teeth. The wires and brackets in this dental therapy apply gentle and steady pressure on teeth. Over time, the teeth move into proper alignment. The latest advances in cosmetic dentistry have given birth to other types of braces, such as Damon braces and lingual braces.

Damon braces have special brackets that self-litigate. The brackets slide and do not depend on elastic bands to secure the wires. These braces are less obvious than traditional braces. Patients also appreciate the shorter treatment time. The only setback is that it is more expensive.

Lingual braces are also known as invisible braces. These braces work from the back of the teeth. Lingual braces are an option for patients who do not want visible brackets and wires. Since these braces are custom-fit, every package costs more.

Cosmetic dentistry also offers transparent aligners to patients who do not want wires and brackets. These aligners are custom-fit, as well. Patients can remove aligners during oral care, eating, or contact sports. Many people choose aligners over braces because of sheer convenience and near concealment.

Dental crowns

Cosmetic dentistry offers dental crowns for those who want more dental protection. Each crown covers the entire exposed tooth and not just the front surface. Dental crowns can even out natural teeth and align them. Patients are more confident in having dental crowns because their natural teeth feel stronger. Dental crowns are available in ceramic, metal, and porcelain.
