Are you dissatisfied with the appearance of your smile? Are you bothered by the crookedness of your teeth, the misalignment and the obvious lack of harmony of how your teeth stand side-by-side with each other? When the teeth are in disarray, it looks messy and disorganized. Apart from that it poses hygiene issues that eventually lead to the development of gum disease and tooth decay. The need to have straight teeth is so much more than just to satisfy an esthetic need, but even the most desperate of individuals would rather endure it than to encage their teeth with braces.
People who are indicated for braces are quick to reject it for many reasons. Do you know that you can resolve orthodontic issues in other ways? Here’s how:
1. Composite Bondings. If you are dealing with small issues such as spaces in between the teeth, you can receive bondings. Composite is the same material used for dental fillings. It is made of polymer plastic so they are not as strong and they can stain and discolour. This may require the need be replaced from time to time, as it cannot very well be a permanent solution.
2. Veneers. Compared to composite bondings that are performed directly into the mouth, veeners are fabricated in the laboratory and they maybe made from ceramic or porcelain. For it to be made, the front surface of the teeth will have to be reduced, so that the veneers could be cemented. This can resolve spaces as well as minor crowding issues.
3. Dental Crowns. If the orthodontic issue is so much more severe, such as a tilted, twisted or rotated teeth; an open bite, underbite or overbite; and others, you can do away with braces and be fitted with dental crowns instead. With this option, such issues are possible because the teeth may be reshaped accordingly, to be fitted crowns that will conform to the dictates of a better bite and smile.
4. Snap-On Smile. This is the most modern cosmetic option available nowadays. It is an almost instant transformation. The issues will be properly masked by a removable smile that you can put on and remove in the most convenient manner possible. In some ways, the snap-on smile is like a mouthguard. It is fabricated on top of your existing teeth so that you may be given the appearance of a straighter and more beautiful smile.
The above-mentioned options can resolve various orthodontic issues and give you the appearance of a straighter and definitely more attractive smile. Compared to braces, you can obtain the results faster and you do not have to worry about the discomfort and appearance of the wires, brackets and rubbers. Of course the results will be limited, but you can discuss your options with a dentist.
