Dental treatment is often needed for correcting various dental irregularities. Orthodontists diagnose, prevent, and treat crooked teeth and bite issues. Cosmetic dentists address the appearance and aesthetics of the teeth and smile with veneer. And then both use various procedures to correct the irregularities faced by the patient.

Orthodontists check the mouth, teeth, and jaws. After taking x-rays and impressions, they advise on the best treatment option to treat bite issues, crooked teeth, and crowded teeth. Two popular options are explained below:


Invisalign treatment involves progressively straightening teeth using sets of discreet, removable aligners that are customized. They are popular for the following reasons:

  • They are almost invisible
  • They can be removed while eating, brushing, and flossing
  • No food restrictions as compared to braces
  • Treatment time is shorter
  • Since they are removable, the patient can forget to wear them, affecting the treatment process. Invisalign is also not recommended for complex cases.


    Braces are used to fix crooked teeth, bite issues, and overcrowding. There are different types:

  • Traditional metal braces – these are attached to the teeth
  • Ceramic braces – like metal braces, but made of ceramic, so less noticeable
  • Lingual braces – attached to the inside of the teeth so almost invisible
  • Self-litigating braces – uses clips, not elastic bands to hold the wire in place
  • Braces are the most effective for treating complex cases where the teeth are quite crooked.


    Dental veneers are used to improve the appearance of the tooth. You can change the size, shape, and color of the teeth with veneer, making them popular with adults.

    Dental veneers are not used to straighten teeth, but to repair a damaged tooth. Veneers are made from porcelain or resin and bonded to the teeth. They are used to address the following problems:

  • Discolored teeth
  • Chipped or broken tooth
  • To change the shape of teeth
  • Tartar and plaque need to be removed before getting porcelain veneers. Tartar and plaque can also form on the veneer so it is important to maintain dental hygiene.

    Consult an orthodontist or a cosmetic dentist to advise you on the treatment options available that are suitable for you. This also depends on the severity of the case, the age, and the budget. It is recommended to get the treatment done on time to avoid bigger problems in the future.
