Many patients hide their natural smile because they are embarrassed by their crooked teeth, but resist orthodontic treatment with traditional metal braces. Modern dentistry offers comfortable, convenient options, like porcelain veneers, for straightening teeth that are discreet and effective.
Why Straighten Crooked Teeth?
Dr. Kush Patel and Dr. Krutav Patel are Fullerton, CA Invisalign providers and often recommend this option to straighten teeth without the embarrassment and hassles often associated with metal braces. Invisalign uses clear aligners to gently reposition the teeth according to a customized treatment plan. Your results will not only enhance the appearance of your smile, but will improve your overall dental health.
Crooked teeth are more than a cosmetic concern. They are often the root cause of a range of common dental concerns as well as bite problems. Crooked teeth can be difficult to brush and floss effectively, raising the risk for developing tooth decay and gum disease.
Teeth that cannot make proper contact with each other when chewing or speaking can strain the jaw joints and throw off the balance of the bite, leading to complex dental concerns such as a temporomandibular disorder (TMD). Commonly called TMJ, bite problems can compromise any dentistry you may receive and lead to bigger problems down the road. Straightening your smile with Invisalign can address mild to moderate bite problems and restore lasting dental health.
