Crooked Teeth Fox Lake IL

While the most obvious complaint about crooked teeth is appearance, a misaligned bite or crooked teeth can lead to a number of health concerns as well, including tooth decay and gum disease.

Crooked teeth make it difficult to brush or floss and can lead to plaque build-up and a misaligned bite could also lead to TMJ. Fixing crooked teeth can vastly improve how you bite, chew, speak, and clean your teeth. Many adults do not wish to wear metal braces; they can be uncomfortable and embarrassing. There are several ways to fix crooked teeth without braces:

Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain Veneers are used to correct minor problems such as small gaps and will give the teeth a more uniformed appearance. Visit the Porcelain Veneers page to learn about the procedure.

Cosmetic Bonding
Cosmetic bonding is a quick and easy way to fix minor imperfections in the teeth, including:

  • Chipped or cracked teeth
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Discoloration

A biocompatible resin is applied directly to the tooth and sculpted into the proper shape and form. Cosmetic bonding does not remove any of the natural tooth, but is not as durable and long-lasting as other procedures. Touch ups may be needed in the future.

Dental Crowns
A dental crown covers the entire tooth and can be used to close spaces between teeth, lengthen teeth, and achieve symmetry in the smile. A dental crown is used to fix crooked teeth usually when they also have been compromised by decay or broken teeth.

Invisalign invisible braces are clear, removable trays that gradually shift the teeth. Visit the Invisalign page to learn more.
