What is Cosmetic Teeth Straightening?


Ever wished you could straighten your teeth without a lengthy treatment like braces? Cosmetic teeth straightening might be your best shot. Unlike conventional orthodontic treatment which aims to fix comprehensive issues with your bite, cosmetic teeth straightening is designed to fix small, aesthetic concerns particularly with regards to the teeth in your “smile zone”. They offer a more discreet solution.

Why straighten your teeth?

A bright and confident smile is a powerful asset that goes beyond just aesthetics. Many people consider teeth straightening not just for its cosmetic advantages but also for the numerous benefits it brings to your oral health and overall well-being.

Benefits of Cosmetic Teeth Straightening

Faster results

Far fewer teeth are adjusted when you opt for cosmetic teeth straightening so the process will take less time to complete. Usually, our patients tend to see results in just 4 to 9 months. This means, in just under a year, you could get a straighter smile! You no longer have to endure 24 months or more of orthodontic appliances.

No metal braces

Brackets and wires may not even be necessary depending on the type of orthodontic treatment you opt for. If you’re worried about your appearance, there are several discreet appliances available to choose from, such as clear aligners, retainer-like mouthpieces & removable braces. During your consultation, we’ll help you decide on the best option that meets both your dental needs and preferences.

Cosmetic teeth straightening is a faster path to straight teeth for individuals who have relatively healthy teeth and don’t suffer from severe misaligned bite issues. Schedule your consultation with Port Melbourne Dental today to find out which orthodontic appliances you’re eligible for!

Enhanced Chewing & Functionality

When your teeth are properly aligned, it promotes more effective chewing and digestion. Having your teeth fit together correctly also reduces the risk of uneven wear, jaw pain and discomfort while eating.

Speech Improvement

Misaligned teeth can add to speech difficulties. By straightening your teeth, it can improve how clearly you pronounce words and your articulation.

Prevention of Dental Issues

Straighter teeth are less prone to certain dental problems. Overlapping or crowded teeth can create tight spaces where plaque accumulates. This leads to cavities and gum disease. Straightening can help prevent these issues.

Comfortable bite

Orthodontic treatments are designed to achieve a balanced bite, which not only reduces the risk of jaw pain and discomfort but also helps prevent problems like temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders.

Versatile treatment options

We have various treatment options beyond traditional braces at PMD. Clear aligners, ceramic braces, and lingual braces offer a more discreet and comfortable choice for achieving a straighter smile.
