If your smile looks uneven or awkward because of malocclusion, it can be difficult for you to show it off with true confidence. In addition to causing problems for the way you look, this issue can also affect your ability to maintain your oral health, as it can make hygiene efforts less effective and create difficulties for your bite function. At our Temecula, CA dentist’s office, we provide several treatment options for people who feel that their teeth are uneven. In addition to traditional treatments with metal braces, we can discuss care that relies on materials that are more discreet. We also have the option of moving teeth into better positions with Invisalign!

Are You Embarrassed By Your Uneven Teeth?

An awkward, uneven smile with teeth that are not in the right positions can make you self-conscious about your appearance. Symmetry is an important facial feature, but visible gaps and overlaps between your teeth can interfere with this quality. Visible gaps and overlaps can also be distracting, as they create noticeable flaws that you can have a hard time covering when you smile and speak. Orthodontic work can help with these issues, just as it can help you put oral health problem associated with malocclusion behind you.

What To Expect From Orthodontic Work

We can use appliances that rely on brackets and wires to move your teeth, or we can recommend the use of clear Invisalign aligners. Orthodontic work with Invisalign depends on clear, removable appliances that will gradually fix spacing and overlap problems that make you self-conscious. For bracket-and-wire braces, we can recommend clear braces or gold braces, appliances made from materials that are more difficult to see.

Hiding Minor Alignment Issues With Cosmetic Treatment

It is possible for some patients embarrassed by malocclusion to move forward with cosmetic treatment. A cosmetic dental procedure can hide flaws in less time, making this a convenient solution when you want results fast. We can evaluate you to see if the issues you have with the way you look can be addressed through the placement of porcelain veneers that cover teeth.
