Orthodontics For Straighter Teeth
Orthodontic treatment is one of the most popular and well known method for correcting misaligned, or crooked, teeth. There are several types of orthodontic treatment including traditional metal braces, short term braces and invisible braces. Dr. Albert Caves refers patients to a local orthodontist in Columbus, GA for treatment. This specialist is actually his father, Dr. Sammy Caves who has more than 25 years experience in orthodontics.
Alternatives To Braces For Crooked Teeth
Many patients, especially adults, want to avoid wearing braces. There are many alternative treatments available and Dr. Caves can perform an evaluation to determine which are your best options. Straightening teeth without braces is best when there are health considerations that would require braces.
Dr. Caves offers a number of cosmetic dentistry treatments that can improve the appearance of misaligned teeth. These treatments include:
Tooth bonding can be used to correct minor problems with alignment such as gaps between teeth or uneven teeth.
Veneers are used to cover the front and sides of teeth, best for correcting minor problems in tooth alignment. Porcelain veneers are usually used to improve spaces between teeth, uneven teeth or misshaped teeth.
A dental crown covers the entire tooth like a cap. This restoration is suited for teeth with more significant alignment issues and/or teeth affected by tooth decay or other damage.
