Crooked teeth are often much more than just a cosmetic dental concern. Crooked teeth may jeopardize the health and integrity of the teeth and gums, in some cases causing complex TMJ disorders. For many patients, crooked teeth can be treated without the need for orthodontics. Serving all areas of San Francisco, Union Square Dental Group offers cosmetic dental solutions to restore both aesthetics and health to crooked smiles.
If orthodontics are needed to correct more advanced malocclusion, your Union Square Dentist may refer you to a local orthodontist. For many patients, cosmetic dental treatments are highly effective at restoring the aesthetics of their smile and comfort of their bite.
Why Treat Crooked Teeth
Patients with crooked teeth are more likely to develop tooth decay and gum disease. Crooked teeth can make it difficult to effectively clean all surfaces of the teeth. Without proper oral hygiene, bacteria will begin to grow and spread, compromising the health of both the teeth and the gums.
Crooked teeth can also make it difficult to chew, bite, or speak. Patients with crooked teeth are less likely to smile and may feel self-conscious or worried that their smile does not make a good impression in both their professional and personal lives.
It is never too late to straighten crooked teeth. There are cosmetic treatments that can discreetly straighten the teeth. Adult patients who straighten their teeth often enjoy increased self-confidence and a better quality of life as well as improved oral health.
Treatment Options for Crooked Teeth
The most effective treatment for your crooked teeth will be determined after a thorough analysis of your teeth, gums, and bite. Our highly trained team of dentists can help answer your questions and will outline the benefits of each treatment option. Our goal is to improve your oral health while creating your most attractive smile.
- Invisalign®: Invisalign is a clear, and discreet way to straighten teeth and realign bites. Ideal for patients with mild to moderate orthodontic concerns, Invisalign can gently and gradually shift teeth into alignment without impacting your professional or personal life.
- Porcelain Veneers: Porcelain Veneers are a thin shell that covers the front and sides of a tooth. Dental veneers are designed to be a permanent dental restoration and can straighten the appearance of a smile. Our highly trained Financial District area cosmetic dentists provide natural and beautiful results that blend flawlessly with your natural smile.
- Tooth Bonding: Bonding is often used as a less permanent alternative to dental veneers. Less tooth preparation is needed so that the bonding can be removed if a dental veneer is desired at a later date. Bonding is color matched and molded to create a beautiful, balanced, and straight smile.
