In addition to causing cosmetic problems, crooked teeth can also contribute to many oral health problems such as TMJ disorder, cavity formation and gum disease. In our Marietta Ga. dental office, Drs. David Hildreth and Michael Mulkey offer several solutions for crooked teeth including straightening teeth with or without braces.
Straightening Teeth Without Braces
Many adults who visit our Marietta dental office want to straighten their teeth without metal braces. Dr. Michael Mulkey is an experienced cosmetic dentist and offers several options including:
- Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain Veneers can be used to correct minor problems including gaps between teeth, crooked teeth or uneven teeth.
- Cosmetic Tooth Bonding
To fix minor imperfections, Dr. Mulkey may recommend cosmetic tooth bonding. This procedure is quick and affordable, usually complete in a single office visit. For this procedure, a biocompatible resin is applied directly to the tooth and sculpted for a natural-looking restoration.
- Dental Crowns
A dental crown covers the entire tooth and can be used to close spaces between teeth, lengthen teeth, and achieve symmetry. A dental crown can also treat teeth that are worn, broken, or affected by tooth decay.
Clear Braces to Straighten Crooked Teeth
In addition to our cosmetic dentistry solutions, Lost Mountain Dental is a certified provider of Six Month Smiles, a orthodontic solution that uses clear braces to straighten teeth in as few as six months. Six Month Smiles is ideal for patients who have mild to moderate orthodontic concerns but don’t want to go through a lengthy process with traditional metal braces.
