Fix a Crooked Smile
Your smile is often times the first feature someone sees, which is why it is important to maintain your pearly whites and keep them in tiptop shape. While teeth whitening will whiten and brighten your smile, what do you do if your teeth are crooked? Well, you don't worry because there is hope for adults who are looking to correct their crooked teeth. Take a look at a few of the most common ways you can go about fixing your crooked teeth in order to perfect your smile.
The most common way to correct crooked teeth is by having an orthodontist install a set of metal braces. They are highly effective, yet they are unpopular among adults because they are inconvenient and unsightly.
Invisible braces don't always correct crookedness as fast as metal braces, but they are a great alternative for those who can't fathom the thought of wearing metal braces for a few months.
If the crookedness is minor or if a gap is your concern and you aren't too thrilled about the idea of wearing braces, a retainer will be the best choice. Retainers are also fairly inexpensive, but you will have to clean them regularly and make it a point to practice excellent oral hygiene.
Porcelain veneers can also be used to fix minor problems, including gaps and chips. Since veneers can get costly, you'll want to make it a point to protect your teeth when participating in rigorous activities, such as boxing, football, hockey, basketball or any other sport.
