Treating Crooked Teeth in Amherst, NY
There are a variety of options for patients with crooked teeth, including:
As an alternative to traditional metal braces, Invisalign is a great way for patients to straighten crooked teeth. During Invisalign treatment, patients wear custom-made aligners that are switched out every few weeks. Each aligner set is different to gradually realign the smile. The Invisalign aligners are also clear for discreet treatment. Additionally, unlike other traditional orthodontic options, Invisalign does not require as many office visits. The clear aligners also conform to the teeth and do not irritate the sensitive gum tissue.
A dental bonding treatment can cover discolored, damaged, and crooked teeth. During the bonding treatment, we use a biocompatible resin that we adhere to prepared teeth. The resin is color-matched and sculpted into the correct shape before we cure it on each tooth. Compared to dental veneers, tooth bonding is a more economical treatment that benefits patients with slight cosmetic imperfections. Dental bonding treatment is quick and can easily create a more even smile.
Dental veneers are thin shells of porcelain ceramic that can cover discolored or damaged tooth enamel. Patients who have crooked teeth in their smile zone but do not require orthodontic treatment benefit from dental veneers. The smile zone consists of the teeth that show when smiling. We bond veneers to the front of the tooth for a long-lasting restoration. Dental veneers can last for a long time with the right care. Because of this, we often recommend dental veneers for patients who want a permanent solution for cosmetically crooked teeth.
Tooth crowns are caps that fully cover teeth. Our dental crowns are made of porcelain ceramic, which is a highly reflective material. Like dental veneers, tooth crowns look and feel natural because of this material. Porcelain ceramic dental crowns not only blend in with the natural smile but are durable enough to withstand the force of the bite. Unlike traditional metal crowns, porcelain ceramic crowns do not contain mercury, which is a harmful substance when ingested.
