Straighten Crooked Teeth Without Traditional Braces

Dr. Dechter and Dr. Moy can work with you to develop a solution that best suits your needs. Patients often let crooked teeth go unaddressed because they don’t want to deal with traditional braces. However, crooked teeth may be treated without traditional braces.

At Dechter & Moy Dentistry, we offer a full range of cosmetic solution to treat crooked and misaligned teeth. To determine the best solution for your dental needs, Drs Dechter and Moy will perform a full oral examination. Depending on your needs, we may recommend one of the following treatments:

  • Dental Bonding: Dental bonding is a quick, cost-effective solution to address crooked teeth. The bonding material can be shaped, molded, and color matched to transform the appearance of a crooked or misaligned smile. Dental bonding is typically used to address minor orthodontic concerns.
  • Invisible Braces: Invisible braces are a clear, removable aligner system that gradually straightens crooked teeth. Invisible braces can effectively and discreetly straighten crooked teeth, making it an ideal treatment for teens and adults with minor to moderate orthodontic concerns. Invisible braces provide the added benefit of no dietary restrictions or oral hygiene restrictions.
  • Dental Veneers: Porcelain veneers are considered a permanent restoration. Porcelain veneers are created using professional grade porcelain ceramic that is custom designed to achieve natural looking, beautiful results. Porcelain veneers can be used to completely transform a crooked or misaligned smile.
