How to Straighten Your Teeth

Are you embarrassed to smile because of what lurks behind your lips? Have you always dreamed of the perfect smile but never know where to even start? Would you like to land the next big promotion or date of your life? If you answered yes to any of those questions, Angel Care Dental has something for you! Unfortunately, not everyone is born with flawless teeth and a perfect smile and some of us just have to work for it. This means teeth straightening treatment, but with so many effective methods available, how do you know which one is right for you?

Here are 4 easy and painless ways the cosmetic dentistry industry can help you achieve the smile of your dreams, change your look, and change your life!

1. Braces:

Braces

Braces are the most common teeth straightening treatment. They have been around for ages and that’s because they work! Despite their unattractive qualities, braces get the job done and the end result is nothing short of amazing. Braces use metal bars, brackets, wires, and rubber bands to pull teeth into the correct positions. Braces not only make your smile look great, but also re-align your bite for less wear and tear in the future.

2. Invisalign®:

Invisalign

Invisalign® is essentially the less intrusive model of braces. Invisalign® works to produce similar results to braces by using clear retainer trays to pull teeth down, push them together, or whatever needs to be done to achieve a beautiful smile. Virtually invisible, Invisalign® corrects your teeth alignment without anyone noticing your wearing them. It’s great for older adults or anyone who doesn’t want to be seen with obnoxious braces.

3. Crowns:

Crowns

Tooth-shaped caps known as crowns are placed over the tooth to restore its shape, size, strength, and improve its appearance. Crowns, when properly placed, fully encompass the entire visible portion of the remaining healthy tooth structure that sits at, and above the gum line. Crowns are a great way to protect a tooth that has been weakened by decay and may be susceptible to cracking but are an even better smile makeover treatment. Crowns can be used to restore an already broken tooth, a tooth that has been severely worn down, or may even hold a cracked tooth together. Crowns may be made out of stainless steel, metals, porcelain fused to metal, or composite resin. Crowns are a wonderful solution for very crooked or very damaged teeth.

4. Veneers:

Porcelain Veneers

A dental veneer is defined as a layer of material that is placed over a tooth to either improve its aesthetic value or protect the surface of the tooth from damage. Veneers are used to fix cracked, broken, discoloured, and misshapen teeth as well as fill in unsightly gaps. After having undergone serious smile changes, veneers are a great way to achieve the appearance of straight teeth. Veneers may be made out of either composite resin or porcelain. While resin veneers are cheaper, porcelain veneers look and feel more natural and are far more durable.
