Many people come to our office complaining of crooked teeth. While crooked teeth aren’t always a major concern, they can sometimes contribute to other dental health problems like gum disease or tooth cavities. Crooked teeth make it difficult to brush and floss, allowing plaque to build up between teeth and along the gums. Straightening teeth can improve not only the appearance of the smile, but the health of the teeth as well.
Solutions For Crooked Teeth
Annapolis dentist John Cutting, DMD offers several solutions for crooked teeth and can help you choose the best one based on your needs and goals.
Dr. Cutting offers Invisalign® treatment in his Edgewater dental office for teens and adults who want to straighten their smile without traditional metal braces.
2. Porcelain Veneers and Dental Crowns
Porcelain veneers and/or dental crowns can be used to correct minor alignment issues, close gaps between teeth and give the teeth a more symmetrical and uniform appearance. These restorations can also help improve the strength of teeth that are worn or broken.
3. Tooth Bonding
Cosmetic tooth bonding is a quick and conservative approach to straightening crooked teeth. A tooth bonding procedure can be completed in a single visit with very little preparation to the teeth.
