Coping with a Crooked Smile? Here's How We Can Help

June 21, 2017
Posted By: Dr. Travis Buxton
Patient Shy About Smile | Bangor ME

If your teeth are crooked, you might have believed that months or even years of metal braces were your only option. But the fact is, there are plenty of other treatments your Bangor cosmetic dentist can provide that will give you straight, beautiful teeth.

Not only are crooked teeth something you might feel embarrassed about, but it can actually be more difficult to take care of misaligned teeth. This makes those with crooked teeth more prone to cavities, plaque buildup, and gum disease.

Let’s take a look at some of your cosmetic dentistry options for fixing crooked teeth faster than ever.

Invisalign and ClearCorrect

We offer both Invisalign and ClearCorrect braces that adjust crooked teeth with clear aligners. Teeth are nudged into place incrementally as patients receive new aligners every couple of weeks.

For most people, treatment lasts about a year so results are quick!

Because they are removable, there are no eating restrictions while undergoing this treatment. It’s easy to clean teeth too; just brush and floss as normal.

It is important to commit to wearing the aligners for about 22 hours per day if treatment is to be successful.

Porcelain Veneers

If even a six-month treatment for your crooked teeth is too long, take a look at veneers. Veneers fit over your existing teeth, camouflaging misaligned or gapped teeth. Treatment happens over a period of about two visits to the dentist.

Results are long-lasting—and good-looking. You’ll have a straight, white, bright smile in a very short amount of time.
