How To Choose The Best Treatment For Crooked Teeth?

What makes a person appear smart and good looking apart from their clothes and attitude? Their perfect smile. A smile with crooked teeth would be undesirable to see and feel. Crooked teeth can be the major cause of an individual’s low self-esteem and downgrading confidence. However, this does not mean that a person will have to live all his life that way. Thanks to medical science and technological advancements, there are many ways to straighten out those crooked teeth and everyone can have that perfect smile. There are many treatment methods present today to have perfectly aligned teeth and improve the beauty of the smile. 


The first method to fix misaligned or crooked teeth is the braces. Braces are the oldest and traditional way to fix crooked or misaligned teeth. Braces are used to apply mild and controlled forces on the teeth to move them and change their direction to align them properly. The braces can be put in any age given the fact that the teeth are healthy. However, the treatment of braces also has some cons, this treatment requires a lot of time to see results which can take up to 36 months. Apart from this, you need to go to the dentist on a regular basis and have a continuous follow-up. Braces may cause speech defects which are not good for people whose job make them have to communicate verbally all the time. In addition to that, personal maintenance can become difficult, especially when it comes to flossing and cleaning the teeth.

Clear Aligners

 The second option to fix crooked teeth is clear aligners. Clear aligners are clear plastic aligners that are customised and made to fit a patient’s mouth. These aligners fit over every single tooth like a mouthguard. These plastic caps are replaced usually two times every month. However, this is not a good option for teeth that are severely misaligned and require a lot of correction. Invisalign are only for teenagers and adults and not for children. Although it is a better option than braces, invisible aligners may take a much longer time to align the teeth as compared to the traditional braces. 


Veneers are very thin coverings that are customised for the patient’s teeth. The veneers are usually made of porcelain or ceramic material that is custom made and are tooth coloured. The job of veneers is to cover the front surface of the teeth. It is a good option if the misalignment is minor. Veneers are a quick alternative to braces. They consist of a very thin layer of porcelain, which is placed over your natural tooth to disguise any imperfections. Not only can veneers be used to straighten teeth, but they can also mask the misshapen teeth or teeth that are badly stained and can’t be whitened. The results are quite impressive and one can easily imagine the Hollywood smile. The results are quick too and can be achieved within just a few appointments.


Sometimes the teeth are not only crooked but also broken or decayed. In these cases, the best treatment option is dental crowns. A dental crown is a cap that is tooth-shaped which are placed over a tooth to fully enclose the bad tooth. If teeth are broken or quite damaged, it is still possible to get the perfect set of teeth and a beautiful smile. After getting crowns, the teeth will look just as natural and function like natural teeth too.

Dental crowns do not last forever, but if good care and hygiene are maintained they can live for up to 30 years. Like braces, there are a few types of dental crowns like porcelain, gold, composite etc.  Another type of crown is the zirconium crown. This type of crowns have natural-looking effects and do not bring any side effect. Zirconium is a crystal and crystals are long-lasting and cannot be damaged easily. Zirconium also matches with the human body and its use is becoming popular in medicine. The best and cost-effective treatment to hide crooked, damaged, decaying or missing tooth is the Zirconium crowns because they are durable, long-lasting, compatible with the human body, looks good and can be reshaped easily.
