Crooked Teeth Atlanta, GA

Crooked teeth are more than a cosmetic problem. Misaligned teeth may contribute to poor oral health, as well as problems with the bite and TMJ. Buckhead dentist Dr. Deborah King is highly trained in the diagnosis and treatment of dental concerns such as crooked teeth and bite problems and can provide you with a number of options for straightening teeth with or without braces.

Why Straighten Crooked Teeth?

Crooked teeth can contribute to serious health problems including tooth decay and gum disease. Because it is often more challenging to brush and floss crooked teeth, food and plaque can become trapped between teeth. Even with the best daily care and routine visits to the dentist, build up like this can cause tooth enamel to wear away and irritate the sensitive gum tissue.

Crooked teeth and misaligned bites can also interfere with proper chewing or even speech. In addition, crooked teeth can cause tension to the teeth, jaws, and muscles. This often leads to headaches, teeth grinding, TMJ related issues and worn or broken teeth.

Straighten Teeth With Invisible Braces

Invisalign Before and After

In addition to the pleasing aesthetic results, I went with Invisalign to correct a bite that was causing damage to my teeth. Invisalign is great dental technology, even more important is the Doctor’s treatment plan and a dedicated staff to monitor your progress. I credit Dr. King and her staff with the exceptional results that I achieved.-David Gellner

Invisible braces are ideal for many adults because the aligners are virtually unnoticeable, removable and straighten teeth in a relatively short period of time. Dr. King offers choices when it comes to straightening your smile with invisible braces:

  • Invisalign: an Atlanta Invisalign provider, Dr. King offers the clear retainer system that has helped millions successfully straighten their teeth and improve oral health.
  • Smart Moves: for short term treatment for milder orthodontic concerns, Smart Moves may be the answer to your cosmetic concerns.

In addition to the esthetic and comfort advantages, invisible braces can offer a number of significant clinical benefits including:

  • Improved gum and tooth health during treatment because of better oral hygiene
  • No metal allergies due to brackets and wires
  • More predictable treatment planning with Invisalign software
  • Custom aligners tailored to fit your teeth precisely, for reduced irritation and fewer scratches

Straightening Teeth Without Braces

For patients who wish to avoid braces, Dr. King offers options such as cosmetic tooth bonding, porcelain veneers and dental crowns.

Dental Bonding
Cosmetic dental bonding is a simple procedure, typically completed in a single visit. Dr. King will apply a tooth colored, biocompatible composite resin directly to the tooth. The composite material is sculpted into the proper shape and form, then “bonded” to the tooth using a special light. Little or no tooth preparation is needed for the dental bonding procedure.

Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers are a great way to straighten teeth without the use of braces. Made of ultra-thin, translucent ceramic material, porcelain veneers have a highly aesthetic and natural appearance. Porcelain veneers cover the front and sides of teeth and can be used to address other cosmetic concerns such as 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. Dental crowns are also used to treat teeth that have been badly damaged, cracked or suffer from tooth decay.
