Columbia, MD dentist Dr. Sulekha Agrawal helps patients improve the appearance of misaligned and crooked teeth. At Columbia Family Dental Care, she collaborates with patients to create treatment plans that target dental concerns.
It is important to straighten crooked teeth as patients with misalignment are more prone to tooth and gum decay. Because it is difficult to clean between crooked teeth, plaque can easily build upon and between the teeth. Dr. Agrawal wants to ensure that patients are scheduling regular dental visits so she can keep track of any problems with their smiles. Routine care allows Dr. Agrawal and her dental team to be aware of dental issues before they worsen. Treating problems early prevents costly and complicated treatments.
Treating Crooked Teeth in Columbia, MD
There are a variety of methods that can improve the alignment and appearance of misaligned teeth:
- Invisalign: If you have moderate to severe tooth misalignment, Invisalign clear aligners can straighten your smile. Unlike metal braces, these clear aligners are removable so you may easily brush your teeth and eat the foods you love.
- Porcelain Veneers: Crafted from thin shells of porcelain, dental veneers cover the front of the tooth enamel. Patients with tooth stains, chips, or cracks in teeth benefit from veneers. We are also able to color-match porcelain veneers to brighten teeth and allow them to blend in with your natural smile.
- Tooth Bonding: Dental bonding is a more economical alternative to porcelain veneers. While tooth bonding also addresses tooth discoloration and damage, they are crafted from different materials. During a dental bonding treatment, we typically use a composite, malleable material that is molded onto the tooth enamel. We then cure this material with a special light.
