One of the common concerns with people that have crooked teeth is the fact that they think the teeth are dark.
Here is a photograph of James Arthur, the recent winner of X factor in 2012. Since winning the show he has commented in the national press about the fact that he wants to have his teeth straightened. Here is a photograph showing him with his crooked teeth, notice how the second tooth on the left-hand side of the photograph (James is right hand side) looks darker due to the fact that the front tooth is rotated.
Many people go to the dentist asking for teeth whitening because they see this dark tooth, however the reason is that it is in shadow caused by the rotated front teeth.
Shadows very often create dark areas on teeth and in fact teeth whitening is not the solution, having straighter teeth is!
Generally speaking straightening teeth nowadays is a fairly simple process with either invisible braces or fixed tooth coloured braces. These treatment options are certain to help your crooked teeth look white again.
Very often though, after treatment, teeth whitening is also offered to finally make your new straight teeth look really white. You may find that your dental practice offers free teeth whitening with any orthodontic treatment, although this is not always the case.
If you’re looking for a dentist to help you with your crooked teeth then the best way to find them is to go to the search engines, most commonly Google, and do a search for the following terms:
- ‘Six month smiles < <your geographical location>>’
- ‘Invisalign < <your geographical location>>’
- ‘Inman aligner< <your geographical location>>’
- ‘invisible braces< <your geographical location>>’
- ‘ceramic braces < <your geographical location>>’
- ‘lingual braces < <your geographical location>>’
By doing this type of Google search and adding your geographical location will allow you to find a dentist in the local area who can provide for you one of these orthodontic options.
