Are your teeth not straight? Do your teeth make you feel self-conscious about yourself every time you laugh? Do you wish your teeth were straighter? If the answer to any or all of these questions is a yes, we’re pretty sure you might already be looking into ways you can have straighter teeth. 

The good news is that numerous orthodontic procedures can straighten your teeth. This blog post lists 3 of these procedures for you. 

1.     Braces

One of the best and oldest procedures that can help you get straighter teeth is braces. Braces are metallic wires and brackets that are attached to the teeth. A bracket is attached to each tooth, and wires connect these brackets. They form a fence-like structure over the teeth that help teeth shift into a better alignment over time. 

2.     Aligners

Aligners are the next orthodontic treatment you can opt for to straighten your teeth. Aligners are dental appliances that are applied over the upper or lower teeth. You can put aligners over your teeth or remove them per your preference. You get full control over your treatment. Unlike braces, you don’t have to keep wearing aligners. 

3.     Cosmetic Contouring

Cosmetic contouring is another orthodontic procedure that can straighten teeth. This procedure can be done when the teeth' shape or size isn’t the same, making teeth appear misaligned. In this procedure, the dentist reshapes the teeth to ensure that all the teeth are of the same shape and size and appear to be perfectly aligned. 

At Duhon Family Dentistry, you come with misaligned teeth but leave with perfectly straight teeth and a confident smile!
