To correct my crooked or gapped teeth, do I have to get braces?

Requiring braces depend on the severity of your orthodontic problems. If your teeth are slightly crooked or have minor gaps between your teeth, these problems can be eliminated with ClearCorrect removable braces, Invisalign clear aligners, porcelain veneers, or dental bonding.

If you have serious orthodontic problems, we can refer you to an orthodontist and see what options are available.

#1 ClearCorrect Removable Braces

ClearCorrect is an innovative orthodontic alternative to traditional metal braces. ClearCorrect uses custom-made, clear, plastic trays to gradually move misaligned teeth into position.

#2 Invisalign Clear Aligners

Invisalign is a world-renowned orthodontic system used to straighten crooked teeth. With a track record of transforming millions of smiles since 1997, Invisalign is a reliable, low-stress alternative to fixed orthodontics. In as little as six months, you can achieve straighter teeth with Invisalign.

#3 Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers can conceal a multitude of aesthetic flaws in your smile. In addition to reinforcing a broken tooth’s strength and appearance, veneers can also make crooked or gapped teeth look more uniform. Veneers are placed on the tooth’s surface and can be shaped and spaced evenly, immediately giving you a more symmetrical smile.

#4 Dental Bonding

Dental bonding can cover slight imperfections, including crooked or gapped teeth. Your dentist molds, shapes, and polishes the bonding to match your natural smile and improve the appearance of your teeth. Dental bonding is a durable, tooth-colored material that directly adheres to the tooth, or teeth, and it can last for many years.
