Crooked teeth are more than just a cosmetic dental concern. What many patients may not realize is that crooked teeth can cause additional oral health complications, damaging the gums, teeth, and jaw. It is important to address crooked teeth as soon as possible, but it is never too late to straighten your smile. Adult and children benefit from realigning their teeth.
The Problem with Crooked Teeth
Crooked teeth can lead to a whole spectrum of oral health complications. Early intervention of orthodontic concerns can help patients enjoy a healthier more confident smile. Your Buckle Advanced Dental Care dentist tracks your oral development monitoring for early signs of orthodontic complications. When treated early on, phased orthodontic treatments can allow for optimal results.
Crooked teeth can:
- Lead to TMJ dysfunction and chronic pain
- Make it difficult to properly clean teeth
- Increase tooth decay
- Cause overcrowding
- Cause malocclusion
- Make patients self-conscious of their smile

Straightening Teeth without Braces
Buckle Advanced Dental Care also offers several ways to fix crooked teeth without braces. Many adults do not wish to wear metal braces; they can be uncomfortable and embarrassing. Straightening teeth without braces can also be used when there are no health considerations that would require braces. The cosmetic dentistry options we offer our patients who want to straighten teeth without braces include:
Porcelain Veneers – Porcelain Veneers are permanent dental restorations that cover the front and sides of a tooth and are extremely durable. They are made of ultra-thin porcelain designed to look and feel like natural teeth. Porcelain veneers require three visits to our Wirral dental practice to design, create, and place.
Dental Crowns – A dental crown covers the entire tooth and is permanently bonded into place. The crown provides strength, aesthetics and lasting durable function. Dental crowns are stain and decay resistant and can be color matched to blend seamlessly with your smile for beautiful results. A dental crown is used to fix crooked teeth usually when they also have been compromised by decay or broken teeth.
