Do I need braces for an asymmetric smile?

Orthodontic treatment and braces aren’t exactly an exciting or appealing option for many patients looking to straighten their teeth – and we get it, who doesn’t want a quick fix?

We understand that our cosmetic patient’s time is valuable. They want fast and effective treatment solutions yesterday. And seeing as some brace treatments take up to a year or more, realigning your smile becomes less exciting.

But we bet you’ve heard of veneers. Did you know in the dental world, we often refer to them as “instant orthodontics” because they provide patients looking for a fast, cosmetic fix to their smile?

Patients less concerned about the benefits of orthodontic treatment from an oral health perspective and more concerned about the look of their smile can turn to veneers to make it happen.

Treatment options for asymmetric smiles and uneven teeth:

Even though typical brace treatments can take 12 months to straighten smiles, patients experiencing mild to moderately crooked teeth can experience much faster timescales to correct misalignment.

For example, if you have a small crowding in your visible smile, treatments like Invisalign i7 or Invisalign Go can straighten teeth in three months or less. Patients only with severely crooked teeth would have to extend their treatment time to 12 months, which will be unavoidable.

That said, Invisalign is an innovative solution for patients who might be embarrassed to wear braces because they are thin, invisible aligners that allow patients to carry out their treatment more discreetly.

Fixed and removable brace options that fix crooked and uneven teeth:

All treatments are available on 0% finance for 24 months. Treatments last from 3-18 months.

Why are your teeth uneven?

Several factors lead to and cause crooked, uneven teeth, which include:

  • Too little or too much space in the mouth for your teeth.
  • When baby teeth fall out too early or permanent teeth grow at the wrong angle.
  • Crooked teeth can also be attributed to genetics and can be hereditary.
  • Sucking a dummy or thumb for too long at a younger age.

Crooked teeth and future oral health problems

As dentists, we must address the issue of ignoring crooked and uneven teeth. Whilst appearance is the main driving factor for patients seeking treatment, another often ignored factor is the threat to the future of their oral health.

As we’ve seen, patients with crooked teeth also experience overlapping issues, making it difficult to clean and floss the teeth properly.

For example, one patient had slight crowding (only small) on her bottom two incisors; as the two overlapped, she could not floss between them, resulting in an overgrowth of plaque and tartar build-up, which was causing her gums a lot of hassle. Does this sound familiar?

Talk to us now to save your gums and teeth – we might be able to help with cleaning.

Without the correct oral health care and hygiene, harmful bacteria build up in the mouth leading to decay, tooth pain and gum disease. And seeing as gum disease cannot be reversed past the gingivitis stage; patients should not ignore any signs or symptoms of the disease developing.

Should you straighten uneven teeth?

It’s your mouth and rules – depending on how you value a symmetric smile. The choice to straighten and correct uneven teeth is a personal one – and one that can often rely on funds. And whilst your crooked teeth might make you self-conscious, it should not be your only reason to seek treatment.

As cosmetic dentists, we know the importance of a beautiful smile, but that does not mean to say that we have forgotten the importance of a healthy one too.
