Misalignment of teeth can cause a variety of dental problems. They can create food traps, which can lead to gingivitis and tooth decay. Porter Smiles Dental offers options for straightening crooked teeth. The most common treatment for straightening teeth is still traditional metal braces. However, they are now more comfortable than ever. Brackets and archwires made from high-grade stainless steel move the teeth into position. We offer a selection of colored elastics to give your smile a unique and colorful look if you prefer.Another option we offer is ceramic braces. For those who need traditional braces, but do not want the look of metal, the clear ceramic material offers a high level of effectiveness with a more discreet look. The ceramic braces we use at Porter Smiles Dental are of the newer ceramics, which are stronger and more durable than previous braces of this type.
