Sure, you would like to show off a smile that is not affected by any gaps, overlaps, or other signs of poor alignment. However, in order to do that you would have to agree to orthodontic treatment, and that means spending an extended period of time wearing metal braces…right? There are exciting alternatives to traditional braces that you should know about if you are concerned about poor dental alignment. Your Virginia Beach, VA dentist uses Invisalign aligners to help patients fix gaps and overlaps in their smile. These appliances are designed to be discreet, making it easier to commit to an adjustment without having to feel self-conscious about your appearance.
Are You Affected By Poor Dental Alignment?
It can be hard to miss the signs of poor dental alignment. You can have teeth that look sunken, or appear to be crooked. You may also have issues with awkward-looking overlaps between teeth, or problems with spacing that leave gaps in your smile. Unfortunately, these problems can affect more than just the confidence of your smile. You might be more vulnerable to issues like teeth grinding and TMJ disorder due to this issue, known as malocclusion.
Using Invisalign Aligners To Improve Your Smile
You will wear a set of Invisalign aligners over a recommended treatment period. While they are removable appliances, note that you should keep them on as often as possible if you want to stay on track to complete your correction. Over time, you will move from one aligner to the next as you gradually change your appearance. Over the course of your treatment, you can be glad to notice just how little attention your aligners can bring. This makes it easy to keep them on even in a situation where you are more concerned about your appearance.
What Else Can My Dentist Do To Help Me Feel More Confident About My Appearance?
At our dental practice, we offer multiple approaches to making cosmetic smile improvements. You can discuss treatment through the placement of porcelain veneers, which can restore the shape, size, and color of teeth while also covering some alignment concerns. If veneers can be used to effectively cover gaps and overlaps, they can provide a faster solution to your issues with your appearance. We may be able to produce similar results via bonding and contouring work, which can demand fewer changes to your tooth structure.
