Options for straightening crooked teeth in Jacksonville
Dr. Alexander is an Invisalign dentist in Jacksonville, offering discreet treatment for straightening teeth without traditional metal braces. Invisalign is available for adults and teens and is one of our most popular treatments.
Invisalign uses a series of virtually invisible, removable aligners to gently reposition teeth. Studies indicate that patients who use Invisalign vs. those who wear metal braces may have improved oral health throughout their treatment. The reason for this is Invisalign patients can remove their aligners so that they can brush and floss normally to avoid plaque build up.
Dr. Alexander may use porcelain veneers to cover the front and sides of teeth, correcting minor alignment issues, closing gaps between teeth and giving them a more symmetrical and uniform appearance.
Dental crowns are similar to veneers, except that they cover the entire tooth like a cap. Dr. Alexander uses dental crowns in cases where there are also issues with the health and stability of the tooth, such as tooth decay, a broken tooth or worn tooth.
Cosmetic bonding is an excellent option for improving the appearance of crooked teeth. Applied directly to the tooth, this procedure is quick and cost effective for treating teeth, but is not permanent and may need to be touched up in the future.
