Teeth can be straightened using either orthodontics or porcelain veneers or a combination of both. Only mild to moderate crowding or protrusion can be aligned with veneers alone, but orthodontics can straighten any teeth, however severely misaligned. Combination treatments are ideal for crowded and misaligned teeth that are also heavily worn, discoloured or broken down.
Aesthetic orthodontic treatment is a state-of-the-art method of achieving cosmetic improvements in tooth position. Working closely with Rx aligners here at Gwynne Dental we can provide a series of clear plastic aligners to gently move your teeth into the correct positions. The aligners are almost invisible so your confidence and smile are unaffected during treatment.
Treatment length and cost will depend on how much tooth movement is required, but is usually between three and twelve months. Some minor adjustments to your teeth and lifelong retainers may be required and will be discussed during the planning stage. To complement their new straighter smile, most people undertake tooth whitening once the aligner treatment has concluded.
