Savannah, GA, cosmetic dentist Dr. Ryan Reeves has been fixing crooked smiles for many years, and we’re happy to share some information about how we fix crooked and/or gapped smiles here today. No dental problem is too small or too large for our highly trained, extensively educated dentist and our stellar dental team, who, together, have been transforming smiles from dull to dazzling for people ready for a change—maybe that’s what brought you here today: You are prepared to make some improvements to the aesthetics of your smile and your oral health.

How We Fix Crooked Smiles

There are many ways to fix a crooked smile, such as cosmetic dentistry procedures and orthodontics (if necessary). If you just have a few crooked teeth, the treatment plan will be different than a patient with a full mouth of crooked teeth.

After a comprehensive examination and evaluation, Dr. Reeves and his team will customize a treatment plan to fix your smile and achieve your goals. Some patients only require a couple of procedures to correct a crooked smile, while others require orthodontic treatment to straighten their smile.

Here are some of the most common procedures we perform to correct crooked smiles:

  • Porcelain Veneers
  • Dental Crowns
  • Invisalign® Clear Aligners
  • Six Month Smiles® Cosmetic Braces

Orthodontics Without Metal Braces

Clear braces and traditional metal braces serve the same purpose of straightening your teeth but do so in different ways and speeds. With Six Month Smiles®, less time is needed in the dentist’s chair, and the results are impressive.

Clear aligners do not cause any of the discomfort traditional braces do, and no one will know you’re wearing them unless you tell them. While Six Month Smiles® may not be as invisible as Invisalign®, they’re still very difficult to see. This type of cosmetic braces is a top choice amongst our Savannah, GA cosmetic dentistry patients.

Dental Veneers and Dental Crowns

Porcelain veneers and dental crowns are also excellent solutions for a crooked smile. Porcelain veneers are a popular choice for minor flaws on a single tooth or many teeth. Porcelain veneers are wafer-thin pieces of porcelain and other delicate materials attached to your teeth. Veneers look and feel natural while maintaining the function of your normal teeth and improving your smile.

A dental crown may be the best solution when teeth are too damaged for a veneer. Natural-looking dental crowns repair broken teeth by covering and protecting the remaining tooth structure from further decay. Dental crowns also allow perfectly straight teeth that look great and function well.

How We Fix Smiles with Gaps

Gaps between teeth may not only affect the beauty of your smile and your self-confidence; gaps can lead to serious dental problems. When teeth are too widely spaced out from each other, your tooth and gum health can be affected, also. Gaps between teeth allow food particles to enter, allowing bacteria to grow; untreated bacterial growth leads to plaque and tartar. When left untreated, this can lead to serious dental problems, including tooth decay, gingivitis, and periodontitis (more advanced gum disease).

Most people are fine with small gaps between a couple of teeth, and many people even find small gaps between teeth attractive. However, when those gaps are too large and detract from the aesthetics of your smile, it’s time to look into cosmetic dentistry solutions to fix those gaps.

Dr. Reeves and his team will discuss ways to fill the gaps between your teeth; you may need some combination of cosmetic dentistry and orthodontia. We have different types of teeth straightening systems at our Savannah, GA, practice, and we look forward to meeting you and discussing ways we can transform your gappy smile into the stunning one you’ve always wanted.

No two patient smile makeovers are ever identical because every patient presents with different problems and goals; therefore, we won’t know your treatment plan until we perform a thorough exam and evaluation of your current smile and oral health.
