Crooked teeth are common among children and adults; some people's teeth grow uneven, overlapping, or twisted. If you have crooked teeth, you shouldn't feel like you have to settle for what you have.

Having crooked teeth can be embarrassing but, most importantly, for oral health. Crooked teeth are difficult to clean effectively; food is more likely to get stuck between crooked or misaligned teeth. And flossing will be less effective on crooked teeth. The longer your teeth stay crooked, the longer your oral health will remain at risk. Fixing crooked teeth helps improve oral hygiene and helps to make you smile beautifully and look happy.

Misaligned teeth can range in severity, and there are three different ways to treat crooked or maligned teeth depending on the degree of the teeth alignment.

  1. Wearing braces
  2. Wearing orthodontic appliances is the most common way to repair misaligned teeth and is the best treatment for children with teeth malocclusion. It can take up to 2 years, depending on the condition of the oral cavity.

  3. Aligners
  4. Adults with mild to moderate malocclusion of teeth can wear a clear plastic aligner to repair bites and smiles. Because these devices are removable, the patient follows the dentist's instructions on wearing the aligner until it pushes the misaligned teeth to correct the tooth position.

  5. Dental Restorations
  6. If your front teeth are the only crooked teeth, we can straighten your teeth and make your smile look beautiful by dental restorations such as veneers or customized dental crowns. The restoration treatment for patients with crooked teeth in the anterior teeth and good posterior fits: the molars' points fit in the opposite molar grooves. This dental restoration treatment takes three office visits.

Selena had a couple of caries on the upper front teeth area that required root canal treatments. She also did not like her smile because her teeth were not straight. After a CT scan, we discussed her concerns, goals, and personal preferences before beginning treatment. She did four crowns for the teeth in the center, and later she added four more veneers. In her case, we completed her treatment in three visits. Depending on the situation, fixing crooked or overlapping teeth can be done quickly and get a beautiful result.
