Do you have crooked or misaligned teeth? Crooked teeth and malocclusion are dental concerns that can create dental problems related to the fit and function of your bite. They may also present challenges for keeping clean and avoiding common dental problems such as decay and gum disease. Dr. Paul Cavanaugh and his team work with patients on an individual basis to evaluate their needs and offer appropriate recommendations for restorative and cosmetic care. Our office in Colorado Springs, CO also offers Invisalign to meet your needs.
Treating Crooked Teeth
Dr. Cavanaugh and his dental team provide multiple solutions to straighten crooked teeth or improve the appearance of slightly misaligned teeth.
Dental veneers are often used to correct minor problems such as small gaps between teeth. Veneers can also give your crooked tooth a more uniformed appearance. Dr. Cavanaugh uses a thin shell of material that can also be placed on short teeth and worn-down teeth to make them appear larger.
Cosmetic Dental Bonding
Tooth bonding is a quick and economical way to fix minor imperfections in your teeth by fixing chipped or cracked teeth, closing the gaps between teeth, and covering discoloration. A biocompatible resin material is applied directly to the tooth and sculpted into the proper shape and form. Dental bonding is often beneficial for patients with minor concerns who can consider more permanent and invasive options later on.
A dental crown covers the entire tooth and can be used to close spaces between teeth, lengthen teeth, and achieve symmetry in your smile. A dental crown is used to fix crooked teeth that have also been compromised by tooth decay or other damage.
Invisalign invisible braces are clear, removable aligners that gradually shift your teeth. This clear aligner system straightens teeth discretely and without any dietary restrictions. Patients who undergo Invisalign treatment also report little pain and visible results within a couple of weeks.
