Misaligned and Crooked Teeth
Straighter teeth are better teeth.
If you have crooked or crowded teeth then you may be uncomfortable with your smile. Misaligned teeth can be difficult to keep clean, causing them to stain and discolour much more quickly.
Why is it important to correct crooked teeth?
Straightening your teeth has many advantages, the main one being achieving a beautiful smile that you can be proud of. Leaving crooked teeth untreated may cause functional problems including:
- Gum Disease and Tooth Decay – due to the difficulty cleaning and flossing crowded teeth
- Jaw Misalignment – Bite issues may develop if the teeth have difficulty coming together
- Reduced Chewing – Eating certain foods may be challenging depending on the misalignment
Does it hurt?
At Studio Smiles we take pride in our emphasis on pain-free dentistry. During Invisalign treatment there may be a feeling of pressure and tightness when changing aligners every two weeks, however this is generally very mild and temporary.
With Porcelain (Ceramic) Veneers we use the latest techniques and technologies to keep you as comfortable as possible. For those fearful of treatment, we offer oral conscious sedation and IV sedation too – which means you can wake up to the smile of your dreams without feeling a thing!
