You are unsatisfied with your smile and want straighter teeth, but you don’t want to waste your time or money. Maybe you’ve considered braces, Invisalign, Candid or even Smile Direct Club. Before you decide which route is best for you, read about three things will save you from frustration with dentistry and help you get the most life out of your new smile!

A straight smile with undiagnosed decay and infection will become extremely costly in the long run!
Cavities will not typically hurt until they are large or close to the nerve, resulting in a much more expensive solution than if they were fixed earlier.
Infections are not always painful, leaving you unaware of the bacteria causing bone loss or other health problems.
Gum disease and periodontal disease are also generally painless but left untreated, they can result in tooth and bone loss, limiting your options to restore your smile.

Visiting a dentist for a thorough examination and x-rays prior to starting tooth alignment will ensure your straight smile is also a healthy smile!

Orthodontics alone may not result in the smile of your dreams. We know that you want the best Invisalign before and after photos!
If you have teeth that are shorter or smaller than others, or wear caused by a bad bite, veneers can provide the final aesthetic look you may be looking for.
Cosmetic veneers require positioning and spacing considerations during orthodontic treatment.

If you are not happy with the shape, size, or color of your teeth, it is best to consult with a dentist who is experienced in Cosmetics and Orthodontics to avoid wasting your hard earned resources.

Missing teeth can often be the reason for crooked or shifting teeth.
The teeth around a missing tooth will shift into the open space.
Sometimes, you will unknowingly compensate for the missing tooth and create wear on other teeth and joints.
If an implant is required, special considerations are required while straightening the teeth.

When aligning teeth, proper space needs to be planned. Consult with a dentist experienced in replacing missing teeth to ensure you aren’t spending unnecessary time in treatment.
