How do I fix crooked teeth?
Crooked teeth are not only cosmetically unpleasing, but they can have negative ramifications on your oral health. Patients with crooked teeth are at a higher risk of developing periodontal disease, tooth decay, and cavities. Crooked teeth make it more difficult for patients to properly brush and floss all surfaces of their teeth, increasing the risk of developing plaque buildup on the surface of the teeth. In advanced cases, crooked and misaligned teeth can contribute to TMJ disorder and other complex bite disorders.
Annapolis dentist Dr. Vernon Sheen offers a full range of cosmetic, restorative, and general dentistry service to improve the appearance of crooked and misaligned teeth. After a one on one consultation, comprehensive examination, and a detailed discussion of cosmetic goals, Dr. Sheen will recommend porcelain veneers, dental crowns, cosmetic bonding, or Invisalign.
Straightening Crooked Teeth
Dental Crowns: Essentially, dental crowns act as a “cap” to cover the entire tooth. Dental crowns can cover gaps between the teeth and improve the appearance of crooked teeth. In some cases, Dr. Sheen can create same day dental crowns using CEREC technology.
Porcelain Veneers: Porcelain veneers are thin, translucent shells that fit securely over the front and sides of the natural teeth. Porcelain veneers are stain resistant and offer a natural, long-lasting solution for crooked teeth.
Cosmetic Bonding: Cosmetic bonding can usually be completed in one visit to our Annapolis, MD dental office Dr. Sheen will carefully shape, mold, and cure composite resin onto the teeth to improve the appearance of crooked and misaligned teeth. Cosmetic bonding is a natural looking, effective, and quick solution to address crooked teeth.
Invisalign: Invisalign can be an effective, comfortable solution for teen and adult patients with mild to moderate orthodontic concerns. Invisalign is a set of clear, removable aligner that carefully repositions the teeth into proper alignment. Invisalign is an excellent alternative to traditional metal braces. Dr. Sheen can work with you to determine if Invisalign is right for you.
