How Can I Straighten My Teeth without Braces?

Happy-Man-SmilingCrooked, crowded, or gapped teeth can often be a source of insecurity and may even lead to other dental issues. Not everyone wants traditional metal braces, which is why OC Lifesmiles offers two alternative solutions for straightening out your smile. Porcelain veneers and Invisalign® are popular cosmetic options among our patients because they can improve the appearance of teeth discreetly and comfortably with natural-looking results!

Porcelain veneers bond to the front portion of the tooth to mask a variety of dental concerns, including teeth gaps and minor misalignment. They are not designed to reposition the teeth, but rather hide the appearance of crooked or spaced-out teeth. With veneers, your desire for a straighter smile can be achieved without a lengthy orthodontic treatment process. Veneers can also be used to conceal discoloration, worn down teeth, and chipped/broken teeth to enhance the overall appearance of your smile.

Orthodontic concerns such as teeth gaps, crowding, and mild to moderate teeth misalignment can effectively be corrected with Invisalign®. If you happen to have an overbite, underbite, or crossbite, this treatment option can address those concerns as well. The Invisalign® process involves custom-fitted, clear plastic aligners that patients wear regularly to gradually straighten out the teeth. Unlike traditional braces, the Invisalign® system is wire- and bracket-free. Many patients choose this teeth-straightening treatment over conventional braces since it is considered more comfortable and convenient.

Dr. Cross has done such a fabulous job in the 8+ years I’ve been his patient, it leaves him with very little work to do on me these past few years. I appreciate how he embraces and has mastered cutting-edge technology. It’s also comforting that he remembers minor details about the condition of my teeth without even having to refer to my chart. The girls at the front desk have an equally impressive memory and are so sweet and friendly.
