Crowded Teeth…what are my options?
What would you change about your smile? Some people love the shape and color of their teeth, but are dissatisfied with the alignment of their teeth. Yeo Family Dental Group has a solution for you.
Issues that can be addressed are:
- Gaps between the teeth
- Open Bite
For gaps between teeth, we can bond composite material to fill the space between teeth. This is good for minor cases.
For all other tooth misalignment cases, we can evaluate whether or not you would be a good candidate for Invisalign or Fastbraces.
Invisalign uses clear aligners that are virtually invisible and fit snugly over your teeth. Each aligner shifts your teeth slightly, moving them horizontally and vertically and even rotating them when needed. You wear the aligners for 20-22 hours a day, removing them when you eat and brush your teeth. We typically see patients every 6-8 weeks to check your progress and give you a new set of aligners. This is an option that many of our patients in the entertainment industry wear, just in case you need to remove them in order to go on an audition or to film a scene.
Fastbraces is another great option. They look like traditional metal brackets (also come in clear). The great thing about Fastbraces is that they are, well, FAST! The design of the bracket itself is made so that it can safely and effectively move teeth into an optimal position. Treatment time is usually in the span of three months or less, but can vary with each case.
