It is very common to see photos or videos of people with perfect teeth. However, the majority of Americans aren't born with perfect teeth. Twenty-five percent of people who wear braces are adults, and researchers estimate that half of the people who wear aligners are adults. If you are an adult, and you're thinking about your crooked teeth, there are some ways you can fix those teeth. Here are some options you have.
How to Help Straighten Your Crooked Teeth
If you have crooked teeth, you have several options for fixing those teeth.
First, if you only have one tooth in a prominent position that is crooked, you may want to think about placing a cap or crown on that tooth. Crowns are porcelain over a metal cap that can protect a damaged tooth, or cover a tooth that is crooked, misshapen, or discolored. If you have multiple crooked teeth all in one jaw, your options can expand to include braces on your top or bottom teeth, clear aligners, or you could opt for veneers for either your upper or lower teeth. Braces are lighter and tougher than braces of years gone by. They're also available in clear or ceramic, which makes them much more difficult to see. You can also get aligners for your crooked teeth. Unlike braces, which work by moving all of your teeth at the same time, aligners move one or two teeth at a time. Aligners are made of clear plastic, so they are easy to remove when you're eating or drinking, brushing or flossing. Aligners are also difficult to see, so no one has to know that you're wearing them except you.
You should also think about getting veneers. Veneers are porcelain shells that fit over your teeth. Unlike braces and aligners, porcelain veneers are a permanent solution. The shells are cemented onto your natural teeth, which gives your smile a flawless look. No matter which method you choose to help you with your crooked teeth, working with a dentist can get your teeth into flawless shape before you know it.
