  2. Braces. While this is more of an investment, it still has a great payoff. Patients of all ages are able to get straighter, more confident smile thanks to braces. There are even discreet solutions available like Invisalign. Braces work by applying pressure to the teeth to reposition them over time. Braces are used to correct teeth that are crooked or crowded, and problems with your bite such as an overbite or under bite.
  3. Bridges and Implants. If your smile is overshadowed by a missing a tooth, you can consider getting bridgework or an implant. While both are great options for replacing a missing tooth, the difference is in how the prosthetic tooth is secured in the both. For a bridge, the prosthetic tooth is adhered to the adjacent healthy teeth around it. For an implant, the prosthetic is anchored in place by a screw-like implant that is inserted directly into the bone of the jaw.
