Fix your crooked teeth with Invisalign or porcelain veneers.
What Problems Come With Crooked Teeth and Misaligned Bites?
There are several reasons why some people's teeth grow in crooked, overlapping, or twisted. Some people's mouths are too small for their teeth, which crowds the teeth and causes them to shift. In other cases, a person's upper and lower jaws aren't the same size or are malformed, resulting in either an overbite, when there is excessive protrusion of the upper jaw, or an underbite, when the lower jaw protrudes forward causing the lower jaw and teeth to extend out beyond the upper teeth.
Crooked teeth and misaligned bites can:
- Interfere with proper chewing.
- Make keeping teeth clean more of a challenge, increasing the risk of tooth decay, cavities, and gingivitis.
- Strain the teeth, jaws, and muscles, increasing the risk of breaking a tooth.
- Make people feel self-conscious about their appearance and affect their self-esteem.
There are a few options to fix crooked teeth, including Invisalign and porcelain veneers.
