The perfect smile isn’t something that everyone in born with, in fact, most people have some sort of cosmetic dentistry issue. Dr. Ivan Valcarenghi understands how a less than perfect smile can not only affect your self-esteem, but can also cause complications for your teeth and gums.
If you were born with crooked teeth, you may find it difficult to brush and floss. Not being able to brush and floss can cause tooth decay and gum disease. Porcelain veneers, dental bonding, and invisible braces can correct your less than perfect smile while giving you a healthy mouth.
Why Do I Have Crooked Teeth?
People have overlapped, twisted, or crooked teeth for several reasons. Sometimes a mouth can be too small causing the teeth to shift or crowd. Other reasons for crooked teeth include an improper bite or a misaligned jaw.
Teeth that are widely spaced, crowded, or misaligned will wear unevenly and could cause your teeth to weaken or even fall out. Other problems that may be associated with crooked, misaligned, or crowded teeth include:
- Jaw pain
- Excessive wear
- Tooth decay
- Gum disease
Misaligned and Crooked Teeth can also:
- Increase tooth wear
- Interfere with talking and eating
- Make it difficult to clean your teeth
- Strain the muscles, jaws, and teeth making you more susceptible to tooth breakage
- Make you self-conscious
According to Dr. Ivan Valcarenghi, straight teeth provide easier access to your teeth and gums and help reduce tartar and plaque accumulation, which reduces the bad bacteria count in your mouth.
Cosmetic dentistry and restorative dentistry really can make a difference to your teeth and gums and your overall health. Some of the procedures that may work for your crooked and misaligned smile include:
- Porcelain Veneers
- Cosmetic Dental Bonding
- Onlays and Inlays
- Dental Implants
- Conventional Braces
