Dreaming of having a straighter smile? If the thought of having to wear braces is stopping you from getting the smile you want, you should know that there are other options out there. Modern advancements in dentistry have opened the door to a few other teeth-straightening solutions aside from the traditional braces method. Here are some other ways you can straighten your smile:
Cosmetic Tooth Bonding
Tooth bonding is a great option for improving the appearance of your smile without ever needing to get braces. This treatment involves applying a strong material made of plastic resin to your tooth and then using a special light to bond it into place. With cosmetic tooth bonding, you can close up gaps and make your teeth look straighter and more uniform.
Porcelain Veneers & Lumineers®
These thin shells of porcelain are bonded to the front of your natural teeth to create a beautiful, custom-crafted smile. Veneers and Lumineers can be used to achieve similar results to dental bonding (as in fixing small gaps and crowding issues), but they differ in the type of material used, how much of your natural tooth structure is affected, and the complexity of the procedure.
Clear Aligner Therapy
Inman Aligners® are a type of orthodontic therapy, but they’re not technically braces. Braces use a combination of wires and brackets to adjust the position of teeth, while this treatment employs clear, plastic aligners to shift teeth into a straighter smile. Since the aligners are transparent, they are a barely noticeable treatment. This solves the big problem most people have with conspicuous braces.
