You know it when you see it: A problem with your alignment. Sometimes, it’s something that has bothered you for a long time not only because you aren’t in love with the way your smile looks but also because you’ve dealt with the side effects of true misalignment (such as issues with chewing or even jaw joint stress). In other cases, you find that you have some minor esthetic worries that mean your smile could look better but you aren’t really sure if you need to shift your teeth or if perhaps you could rely on a simple cosmetic treatment. Of course, you don’t have to figure anything out on your own! Our Auburn Hills, MI team is here to tell you what you need to know!
If It’s A Comprehensive Misalignment Issue
There are different types of issues that one may have, causing them to feel their smiles require aligning. For some, it’s just a space here or a bit of overlapping there. However, if what you’re seeing when you smile into the mirror is a comprehensive misalignment issue, then this may show itself as lots of spacing, overcrowding (with overlapping teeth), an over bite, an under bite, or something similar. We call this misalignment or a malocclusion. Fortunately, we offer Invisalign treatment that will let you wear clear trays to shift teeth where they belong!
If You Just Have Some Spacing
About that bit of spacing we mentioned: If your bite is healthy but you have a gap between two teeth or some spaces throughout your smile, remember that we offer the cosmetic treatment you need for your smile to look more aligned and consistent. Generally speaking, we will suggest you speak with us about porcelain veneers! They are hyper-thin, ceramic shells that are placed on the front of your teeth. Since we can customize everything about them, we can make them slightly wider than your natural teeth to close openings and give your smile the illusion of absolute uniformity.
If You’re In A Rush
Maybe you like the idea of Invisalign but you’re in a big rush. You know that clear aligner trays are efficient but you would still prefer the most accelerated option out there because you definitely need more than what veneers can achieve. The lovely news is that we offer Fastbraces, which let you wear a more traditional set of brackets and wires, which will align your teeth in as few as six months.
