If you have one or more crooked teeth, we have several options for you. At Dovedale Dental Care, we offer cosmetic and orthodontic options for patients with crooked or misaligned teeth. Straightening teeth not only improves the aesthetics of the smile but also improves patients’ oral health. Patients with misaligned or crooked teeth are much more prone to developing problems like tooth decay or gum disease. This is because it can be difficult for patients to remove food particles from between their crooked teeth. Over time, harmful bacteria feed on these particles and eat away at the gum tissue and tooth enamel. Our dental team, led by Dr. Puneet Agarwal, offers a variety of options for patients to create a more even bite. Here you can learn about your treatment options for crooked teeth in our Marriottsville, MD dental office.
Treating Crooked Teeth in Marriottsville, MD
Our office’s treatment options for patients with crooked teeth include:
As an alternative to traditional metal braces, Invisalign offers a simple and efficient way to straighten crooked teeth. If you have mild to moderate orthodontic problems, we will recommend Invisalign. Invisalign uses clear aligners that realign teeth over time. Each Invisalign aligner is different and shifts the smile into proper alignment. Additionally, Invisalign aligners are removable, so patients can eat and drink without any restrictions.
Dental veneers are ultra-thin pieces of porcelain ceramic that cover the front of crooked teeth. Patients with crooked teeth in their smile line benefit from veneers. Porcelain veneers are a cosmetic option best for patients with cosmetic issues with their misaligned smiles. Veneers are durable and look and feel just like natural teeth.
Similar to dental veneers, tooth bonding treatment can also address slightly crooked teeth. If you have one or multiple crooked teeth that impact the look of your smile, bonding can help. The dental bonding material is made out of malleable biocompatible resin. Dr. Agarwal can mold and sculpt this resin material to the tooth enamel. Once the resin is the correct shade and shape, we use light to cure the material to the tooth.
