If you are concerned about your smile because of tooth deficiencies, then you are not alone. There are thousands of individuals that are looking to obtain straight teeth in order to have a beautiful smile. You no longer have to feel embarrassed by the way you look, as there are many dental techniques that can straighten out your teeth in a reasonable amount of time.

1. Braces - A great way to get the straight teeth that you have always wanted is to have braces placed on your teeth. This type of orthodontics will be able to correct various types of issues with your smile -- from large gaps between your teeth, under bites and over bites. Each tooth that needs to be repaired will have a bracket that is installed using dental cement. Each row of braces are then joined with a wire that allows the dentist to correct your smile.

2. Implants - If you have missing teeth, then you may want to consider implants. This dental technique provides a strong substrate that will permit an artificial tooth to fill the void. It will generally take up to six months for the implants to be accepted by the jaw bone. It is often used to replace teeth that have been lost due to gum disease, tooth decay and root canal issues.

3. Mini-implants - Similar to implants, mini-implants will also provide you with the straight teeth you are searching for, but in less time. For instance, custom dentures can be created to provide you with the smile that you deserve and they are able to be installed in one day. Additionally, patients that already wear dentures and are tired of having them come loose, can have mini-implants installed so that their existing dentures may be retrofitted.

4. Veneers - A cosmetic dentist can also provide you with straight teeth by having veneers installed on teeth that are chipped, cracked, uneven, over worn and damaged. The dental work is completed by taking a mold or cast of the subject area. The dentist will then create a custom veneer that will cover the tooth, properly aligning it with the teeth immediately around it.

5. 6-Month Smile - This type of orthodontics will provide patients with perfectly straight teeth in no more than 6 months. The secret behind this type of dental work is that a dentist only concentrates on teeth that are clearly visible or the teeth that you feel most insecure about. This is accomplished by using braces that are clear, along with wires that are colored to match your teeth. The end-result is the same as braces, but it is accomplished in less time.

Having straight teeth is important because it boosts your self-confidence level. You no longer have to live with an imperfect smile, contact your dentist today to find out more about these and other dental procedures.

When looking for a dentist to straighten your smile, take the time to find a professional that not only has the credentials and experience, but the passion to perform exceptional work.
