Solutions to aesthetic problems, about color or shape, that bother when smiling
Orthodontics is used to improve the cosmetic appearance of theeth (fitting braces to realign the teeth), together with tooth whitening, porcelain or composite veneers, and all-porcelain crowns or sheaths.
We may have perfectly straight teeth but with altered colour or shape, which may cause problems when smiling.
To solve these problems there are different techniques and each has its specific indications.
We must not forget that any underlying problem (caries, periodontal disease etc) must be pretreated before correcting aesthetics. Obviously whenever possible we seek that function and aesthetics go hand in hand.
