These below-mentioned procedures may include braces, veneers, dental bonding, or even removing teeth. In some extreme situations, we may even recommend altering your bones to allow for more room. Below, find three effective procedures that effectively straighten the teeth to offer you the prettiest smile on the block.


Porcelain Veneers 

Porcelain Veneers have the ability to change the appearance of the teeth and cover imperfections, and can effectively correct misalignment issues. The reason behind this is that the veneers are bonded directly to the teeth and thus they offer more strength and durability. You can also brighten your teeth by selecting a lighter shade for your veneers. These are staining resistant, and thus you won’t have to think about whitening your teeth over a period of time. These Porcelain Veneers can be completed quickly, typically in one or two sitting appointments, so it is vital to mention that you’ll be enjoying your new smile in a matter of weeks. 



In this procedure, a cover is developed to be placed over the top of the teeth, restoring it to its regular size and shape. Crowns can effectively improve teeth by making them whiter, straighter, and stronger and are made up of diverse kinds of materials, often colored to match the look of your regular teeth. The procedure of positioning a crown starts with the removal of the outer portion of the teeth to make room for the crown. The crown model comes from the impression made of your teeth, and once the process is complete, the crown is placed in the mouth. Since crowns don’t prevent cavities, it is crucial to take good care of your teeth. 



Invisalign act as an alternative to the traditional metal braces and offer subtle and clear treatment to straighten the teeth. This treatment enables the patient to remove the aligners in order to clean the teeth or eat food, as well as the plus of not having to visit the dentist for painful tightening procedures. The aligners are developed to fit the exact requirements of the patient and make the teeth straightening process more effective, quicker and less painful. 


In this process, the dentist takes X-rays in order to determine how to develop the aligners. He then takes highly detailed images of the teeth, mouth, and bite to make the tray customized for the patient’s smile. Treatment via Invisalign can be up to twice as rapid as regular braces.
