At our Riverside, CA dental office, we are happy to work with patients who want to make ambitious smile improvements. Many people who have negative feelings about their appearance can have several specific flaws they would like to address. One problem that can affect your smile is malocclusion, or problems with poor teeth spacing. If your teeth overlap, or if they are too far apart, your smile can look awkward and asymmetrical. Even if your teeth are healthy, they can look unattractive because of the way they are positioned. We can perform an evaluation and recommend orthodontic work to help. If you wish to take on more than just the alignment of your smile, we can look at the benefit of following orthodontic work with additional cosmetic dental work.

Poorly Aligned Teeth Can Negatively Affect Your Smile

If your teeth are not properly aligned, it can make you reluctant to show off your smile. Your work to prevent dental decay and gum disease can ensure your teeth are healthy, but you can still have doubts about your appearance because of gaps and overlaps. Problems with malocclusion can actually affect more than just your appearance. Poorly spaced teeth can interfere with your bite function, which can lead to TMJ problems and more issues.

Beginning Orthodontic Treatment

After a review, your dentist will be able to plan treatment with either braces or clear aligners. Your appliance will gradually move your teeth, straightening out overlapping teeth and closing gaps that hurt your appearance. During your adjustment, we can monitor your progress and make sure you are on the right path to see your desired improvements.

Why Some Patients Follow Orthodontic Work With Cosmetic Treatment

If you have more than just malocclusion to worry about, we can recommend cosmetic dental work that can further improve your appearance. By following orthodontic work with a teeth whitening treatment, you can enjoy a smile that is brighter and straighter, leading to a significant boost in confidence. We should note that in some cases, cosmetic treatment can address problems with poor smile alignment. With porcelain veneers, we can address minor gaps and overlaps that make you unhappy with your appearance.
