Many people with crooked teeth feel self-conscious about their smiles. Several factors can cause these, and it can be challenging to choose the proper treatment.
Crooked teeth can also cause dental problems, including difficulty chewing and speaking, as well as jaw pain. They can also be more challenging to clean, leading to an increased risk of tooth decay and gum disease.
Timberlands Dental Clinic offers a variety of services for crooked teeth that can improve your oral health and your facial appearance. These include dental veneers, crowns, smile makeovers, and clear aligners. Our experienced team will work with you to create a personalised treatment plan and help you choose the most appropriate procedure.

Common Causes of Crooked Teeth

There are several factors that can lead to crooked or misaligned teeth. Here are some of them:

  • Genetics:
    Having crooked or crowded teeth can be hereditary and passed down in the family.

  • Poor oral hygiene:
    If you don’t care for your teeth and gums, it can lead to tooth decay and gum or periodontal disease. These can cause you to lose your teeth and the remaining ones to shift out of place.

  • Injury:
    An injury to the mouth or face can damage the teeth and jaw, resulting in the misalignment of teeth.

  • Childhood habits and early tooth loss:
    Bad habits such as thumb sucking and thumb thrusting can cause adult teeth to become crowded if these are not corrected early on. Early loss of baby teeth can also cause permanent teeth to grow with limited space.

Dental Services

Dental Services that Can Address Crooked Teeth

Dental Veneers

Dental veneers are thin pieces of porcelain that are placed over the front surfaces of your teeth. They can make your teeth appear straight by changing the tooth’s shape.

Timberlands Dental Clinic offers veneers as a natural-looking option to conceal slightly crooked teeth.

Dental Crowns

As with veneers, dental crowns can also change the shape and appearance of your teeth and make them look straight.

Crowns are cap-like restorations that are cemented on top of teeth. Consult with the dentists at our clinic to see if dental crowns can help straighten your crooked teeth.

Smile Makeovers

A smile makeover is a set of treatments that can address crooked teeth and improve the overall appearance of your smile.

Our competent dentists will develop a personalised treatment plan tailored to your smile goals so that you can smile confidently.

Frequently Asked Questions about
Crooked Teeth

Here are some of the signs that may indicate that you have crooked teeth:

  • Your teeth look crowded when you smile.
  • You have difficulty cleaning your teeth properly.
  • You feel like your bite is off.
  • Your teeth are chipping or wearing down unevenly.

If you want to be sure, your dentist can assess your teeth and give you a diagnosis.

Unfortunately, if crooked teeth are not managed, they may get worse over time. This is because your teeth can slowly shift out of alignment as you age. This shifting may lead to more crowded teeth and other dental problems.

Misaligned teeth can lead to self-esteem and dental health issues. They can cause:

  • An increased risk of cavities, gum disease, and periodontal disease
  • Poor oral hygiene due to difficulty flossing and brushing
  • Excessive tooth wear and a misaligned bite
  • Speech and eating difficulties
  • Pain in the jaw joint and facial muscles
  • Lower confidence and self-esteem

The treatment duration depends on the type of treatment you receive. There are same-day procedures for dental crowns and veneers, so the results are instantaneous. But, there are instances when you may have to come for multiple appointments over weeks.

For removable aligners, you may need to wear them for several months to years, depending on your case. Before your procedure, our dental team will give you an estimate of how long your treatment will take.

Some discomfort may be felt when wearing clear aligners, but this is usually minimal. You should not feel any pain during dental crowns and veneer procedures, as these may be done under local anaesthesia. It is normal for your teeth to feel a little sensitive for a few days after the treatment, but this should subside.
