Four Ways to Get Straighter Teeth

Beyond achieving the smile of your dreams, there are many reasons why you may be seeking straighter teeth. Glacier Creek Dental knows jaw pain, periodontal disease, and crowding can all be issues of crooked or misaligned teeth. Luckily, our team of experts is here to help provide you with options for straighter teeth. Keep reading to learn more about our top options or schedule an appointment with one of our trusted dentists today to see which option is right for you.



The most common option for straighter teeth is braces. Braces attach individually to each tooth to improve overall alignment. Braces tend to be a popular choice for children, but if you are an adult looking for other teeth-straightening methods, Glacier Creek Dental has you covered.


Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are a great option to achieve a beautiful, straight, natural smile. Porcelain veneers are ultra-thin ceramic shells that are cemented over your existing tooth to correct teeth that are chipped or fractured, permanently discolored, or misaligned. For porcelain veneers to be an option for you, you must have relatively healthy teeth and gums, along with enough enamel for the procedure. To see if you would be a good porcelain veneer candidate, contact our dental office today!



Crowns are another restorative method to get straighter teeth. Much like veneers, crowns are placed over the existing teeth. This method is commonly used when the shape of your tooth is destroyed due to a cavity or injury, or also for spacing issues.



Invisalign is quickly becoming a popular teeth straightening technique for both young adolescents and adults alike. Invisalign is a clear aligner that discreetly goes over your current teeth and works to restore your smile. Treatment is variable, but you can expect it to be less than that of traditional braces. Most people typically wear their Invisalign between 5 months and one year to achieve an optimal, straight smile.

Less than perfect teeth are not only embarrassing but can also be painful. If you are tired of having crooked, misshapen, or constant tooth pain, make an appointment to see what our team at Glacier Creek Dental can do for you!
