How Can I Address Crooked Teeth?

Do you want to straighten your smile? Are you looking for a way to address crooked teeth cosmetically? We can help patients treat their crooked teeth in Nashville, TN. Sometimes, crooked teeth may only affect the look of the smile. However, crooked teeth can also contribute to TMJ disorders, tooth decay, and gum disease. Crooked teeth create an unbalanced smile and add pressure to the temporomandibular joints. It can also be difficult to clean between crooked teeth, so bacteria can easily build up between teeth. Addressing crooked teeth, whether they create solely cosmetic problems or otherwise, can help patients’ confidence and oral health.

Crooked Teeth in Nashville, TN

There are multiple treatments that we offer for patients with misaligned and crooked teeth:

Dental Bonding

Tooth bonding treatment uses a composite material to cover chipped, cracked, and even crooked teeth. Patients who have one or two crooked teeth can benefit from bonding treatment. Bonding uses composite materials that we can color-match to natural teeth.

Dental bonding is best for patients who want to add structure to a damaged tooth or brighten one or two stained teeth. This treatment offers a quick and efficient way for patients to address small dental problems.

Porcelain Veneers

Dental veneers are thin shells that we bond to the front of the tooth enamel. Patients with cosmetically crooked teeth also benefit from veneers. We can use veneers to cover crooked teeth that do not interfere with the bite or cause oral hygiene problems.

Because dental veneers are made of porcelain ceramic or other tooth-colored materials, they look and feel natural. Veneers can cover all teeth that show when patients smile, also known as the smile line. Preparing the teeth, we ensure dental veneers do not look or feel bulky. Our team is dedicated to helping patients receive lasting, natural results.

Clear Braces

Reveal aligners offer a modern alternative to metal braces. These aligners are not effective for patients with large tooth gaps, underbites, overbites, cross bites, or rotated teeth. However, clear aligners are a great option for patients with mild to moderate orthodontic problems like crooked teeth.

Patients can also remove their aligners to eat, brush, and floss. Clear braces have fewer dietary restrictions than traditional braces because patients do not have to worry about damaging their oral appliances. Additionally, clear braces make cleaning the teeth and gums much simpler.
