Solutions for Crooked Teeth

One of the most obvious signs of a healthy and beautiful smile is straight teeth. Your smile conveys much about you to others in your life, and when your teeth are straight, you are more likely to exude confidence. If you want to straighten your teeth, there are several solutions to give you the smile you have always wanted.

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are a versatile solution for minor imperfections. The bonded porcelain shells give your teeth the appearance of being straight, and they are matched in color and shape to fit seamlessly. A minute portion of enamel is removed to fit your veneers, and this can be accomplished in only a couple of visits to Dr. Kern.

This is a cosmetic fix to crooked teeth. If you need to straighten your teeth, and are looking for a full restoration, but don’t want to concern yourself with traditional metal braces, Invisalign is another option.


Invisalign’s clear plastic aligners are a very effective way to straighten crooked teeth gradually. You will replace aligners as your teeth become straighter. Benefits of Invisalign include:

  • Aligners are very difficult to detect by others
  • Aligners may be removed to allow for eating foods you enjoy, as well as maintaining your brushing and flossing regimen
  • No need to worry about metal edges that can cut teeth and gums like traditional braces
  • Adjustments are painless. Just visit Dr. Kern for the next set of aligners

Because your teeth will straighten gradually, Invisalign takes some time to complete. However, this is a much quicker timeline than with traditional braces. However, given the end result of what straight teeth can accomplish, Invisalign is a very popular treatment for fixing crooked teeth.
