Straighten Up: 3 Ways to a Straighter Smile

If you look at the mouths of a lot of supermodels or even actresses you may notice that a lot of them have less than perfect teeth. And although a perfectly imperfect smile can be an endearing trait, it can also make you look a little less than put-together. Luckily, here at McDowell Dental Group, we have a variety of different treatments that we can use to help you get that straight smile you’ve always wanted. From traditional metal braces to veneers, this article will list three of your main options you have to choose from. Read on to learn more.

Metal Braces

Metal braces have consistently been one of the easiest, most effective, and affordable options that patients have to straighten their teeth. By using a combination of wires and brackets, metal braces work by placing pressure on the teeth to help properly align them.


As a popular option amongst adults, Invisalign is a newer way to help correct crooked teeth. By using a combination of customized clear trays, Invisalign works to reposition your teeth without you having to sport a mouth full of metal. Plus, because you can take the trays out when you eat, you won’t have to worry about getting a lot of food stuck in between your brackets.


Veneers are another great way to completely transform your smile. By filing down your existing teeth and placing porcelain veneers on top, our dentists can help give you not only a straighter smile but a whiter, brighter one as well.

During your initial consultation with one of our dentists, we will perform a dental x-ray and oral examination to get a closer look at your teeth. Once we can target your problem areas, we will then be able to create some different treatment scenarios for you to hopefully choose from.
