How are Crooked Teeth Treated?

Do you want to straighten your crooked teeth? Payette Dental has cosmetic options for you. Crooked teeth can not only cause appearance issues but can compromise your oral health, so it is important to know your treatment options.

Why Treat Crooked Teeth?

Crooked teeth can increase the risk of health problems from occurring, such as:

  • Infection
  • Heart disease
  • Diabetes
  • Pneumonia

Problems like tooth infection can quickly spread to other parts of the body. Crooked teeth increase the risk of tooth infection because it can be difficult to clean between teeth. Hard-to-clean areas easily become infected when bacteria and plaque build up. If crooked teeth are not treated, infection may spread.

How to Fix Crooked Teeth

There are multiple treatment options that we offer at our Payette area office:

Tooth Bonding

In this procedure, biocomposite resin material is sculpted to a prepared tooth. The resin is shaped, polished, and “bonded” to teeth using a special curing light. Bonding material is also color-matched to teeth for a natural look. Be sure to avoid tooth-staining beverages like coffee, tea, and soda for 48 hours after the procedure.

Porcelain Veneers

This treatment option covers the front and sides of teeth with stain and decay-resistant veneers. Porcelain veneers not only help treat crooked teeth, but can also treat misaligned and damaged teeth. The shape, color, and alignment of teeth can be customized with porcelain veneers.

Dental Crowns

Dental crowns act as caps that cover teeth. They not only correct crooked teeth, but provide protection from decay and staining. When caring for dental crowns, it is important to prevent infection by brushing and flossing regularly.
