How to Get Straight Teeth
Do you feel great about showing off your smile? If not, why? Many people say it is because they have a crooked or ugly smile and don’t feel good about showing it off. This is a shame! If your teeth are affecting your self-esteem, it’s time to do something about it. Complete Dental, in Houston, TX, has several ways you can go about correcting your teeth. Which one is right for you? Come into our office and we’ll discuss it with you!
First, let’s go over each option in a little more detail. This way, you’ll have a general idea of which choice may be the right one for you. All three of these are offered by the Houston, TX cosmetic dental experts at Complete Dental:
#1 Traditional Orthodontics
When you think of “braces,” this is probably what comes to mind. This method is a patient favourite and relies on metal brackets and wires to move teeth into place over time. Traditional braces are extremely effective when it comes to straightening teeth and improving your bite, which is why you see so many people who have them. By placing a constant, gentle force in a carefully controlled direction, braces slowly move teeth to the proper position. If you have alignment issues or many teeth that need to be straightened, this is the most cost-effective way to do it. When it is time for your metal braces to come off, you will have the smile you’ve always dreamed of and the confidence to show it off!
Invisalign® straightens your teeth without wires and brackets, using a series of clear, customized, removable appliances called aligners. Hardly anyone will know that you’re straightening your teeth! These aligners are custom designed to fit your mouth, and every few weeks we change out your aligner to bring you that much closer to straight teeth. Different teeth will have different requirements, but you can expect typically 20 to 30 sets of aligners. Not only are these aligners discreet, but they can also be removed when brushing, flossing, and eating.
If you only have one or two teeth causing the aesthetic problem, you don’t need a full set of braces. A veneer will do the trick! Porcelain veneers are natural in appearance and are a perfect option for patients wanting to make minor adjustments to the look and feel of their smile. This is ideal for a patient who’s front teeth or just a bit out of line. Veneers are thin, custom-made shells made from tooth-coloured porcelain and designed to cover the front side of your teeth. This can be done quickly, and you’ll walk out of the dentist with a smile you’re proud to show off.
You deserve to have a smile that lights up the room! When you visit Complete Dental for tradition braces, Invisalign®, or veneers, you will have that perfect smile you’ve always dreamed of. Make an appointment at our Houston, TX dental clinic and let us know you’re finally ready to have a great smile. We’ll see you soon and get to work making this a possibility!
