Choosing A Treatment To Improve Your Poorly Aligned Smile

If your teeth are not properly aligned, you can be embarrassed by problems with teeth that overlap improperly, or are separated by noticeable gaps. At our Seattle, WA dentist’s office, we can work with you to improve the way you look by hiding or correcting these visible alignment flaws. Through cosmetic dentistry, it is possible to hide spacing issues so that they no longer make you uncomfortable with the way you look. We can also discuss using Invisalign aligners to straighten your teeth without asking you to wear conspicuous metal braces. With the right approach to improving your smile, we can provide lasting smile improvements through surprisingly conservative treatment.

Addressing Gaps And Overlaps Through Cosmetic Treatment

While people often assume that alignment problems have to be addressed through orthodontic work, it may be possible to improve your smile without an adjustment. Cosmetic procedures can affect the shape and size of teeth so that gaps and overlaps are no longer noticeable. As a result, your teeth can look more uniform, your smile can look more attractive, and you can enjoy a more attractive appearance in less time than you expect!

Using Veneers Or Bonding Treatment To Improve Your Appearance

Porcelain veneers are custom-made shells that are designed to address specific flaws that have made you unhappy with the way you look. Your veneers can cover up chips and cracks that hurt teeth, dental discoloration, and problems with the way teeth line up next to each other. Your dentist can apply veneers that close gaps between teeth, or effectively hide awkward overlaps, so that they no longer concern you.

Your cosmetic treatment does not have to rely on any restorations. A bonding and contouring treatment can produce results by reshaping teeth, and using composite resin to improve their shape, size, and condition. In many cases, your dentist is able to complete this work in just one visit, making it a surprisingly convenient way to change the way you look.

We Can Also Offer Treatment With Invisalign Appliances

It is sometimes necessary to use an orthodontic appliance to address problems with dental misalignment. If this is the case for you, or if you prefer to permanently correct the positions of your teeth, we can discuss Invisalign treatment. Invisalign aligners are designed to go unnoticed when worn. You can have them in place throughout the day without attracting attention, and you can easily remove them when you are eating or cleaning your teeth.
