Bite MechanicsYour dentist is not just concerned with beautiful smiles. Dentists are also concerned with the mechanics of your bite. If your bite alignment is off, your teeth may perform less effectively when eating or speaking. When assessing your teeth and gums, your dentist will be watching for:
Spacing or Crowding

Correcting Crooked® TeethTraditional methods of straightening the teeth involves the installation of dental veneers, or metal braces. While metal braces are an effective way to move teeth into alignment, they tend not to be esthetically pleasing and are required to be worn long-term. Veneers, on the other hand, can be costly to install, and may require replacement. Unlike braces, veneers must be installed on a prepared surface in which the tooth has been etched and therefore alters the structure of the tooth itself.
The Invisalign® AlternativeWhile traditional braces remain the preferred course of action for severe malocclusion, many clients have successfully used Invisalign® to correct mild to moderate dental alignment problems. Invisalign® offers a nearly invisible alternative to metal and veneers. Invisalign® is a series of comfortable, custom-made aligners which are worn over the teeth and can be removed at any time. Trays are adjusted in small increments, changing every few weeks to encourage teeth to come into alignment.
