Do you have crooked or misaligned teeth that affect the appearance of your smile- and your confidence?
Memphis cosmetic dentist Dr. Elizabeth Lee offers convenient, effective treatment for crooked teeth that is tailored to your oral health needs, cosmetic goals and budget. We work with patients on an individual basis in order to provide the best possible treatment solution for a lasting and comfortable result.
Why Straighten Your Teeth?
Crooked teeth can be more than just a reason to hide your smile. Teeth that are misaligned make it difficult to effectively brush and floss, increasing the risk of tooth decay and gum disease. Crooked teeth can also contribute to an uneven or dysfunctional bite, leading to conditions such as TMJ. Dr. Lee offers a range of effective options for straightening your teeth and providing a smile that feels comfortable- and looks beautiful.
A straight smile that you are happy to share can boost your confidence in both social and professional settings. It also lends a more youthful appearance, especially when treatment is followed up with professional teeth whitening for a complete smile makeover that is supporting your long term dental health.
Invisible Braces for Crooked Teeth
Dr. Lee offers invisible braces for straightening your smile discreetly. Six Month Smiles® uses clear brackets to gently reposition the teeth in the “smile zone” for a beautiful new smile that can be achieved in less than a year. Six Month Smiles can be ideal for the teen or adult patient, even those who have previously had orthodontic treatment and are experiencing changes in their teeth position.
Straighten Teeth Without Braces
Dr. Lee can address crooked teeth with a range of restorative or cosmetic procedures for a permanent solution and improved dental health. Treatment can include one or more of the following options:
- Tooth Bonding: Cosmetic tooth bonding is a simple procedure, typically completed in a single visit. Dr. Lee will apply a tooth colored, biocompatible composite resin directly to the tooth for a natural looking result.
- Porcelain Veneers : Porcelain veneers are a great way to straighten teeth without the use of braces. Porcelain veneers cover the front and sides of teeth and can be used to address many other cosmetic concerns including gaps between teeth or discolored teeth.
- Dental Crowns: A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap placed over a tooth that is misshaped or crooked. Similar to a porcelain veneer, a dental crown covers the entire tooth rather than just the front or sides.
