Dr. Becker aims to help his patients receive healthier, straighter, and more aesthetically pleasing smiles using cosmetic dental treatments. He works with patients to help create a custom and comprehensive treatment plan.
Straightening teeth is often a preventative measure to stop future dental problems. It can be difficult to clean between crooked or overcrowded teeth, which is why plaque can build up easily between teeth. However, patients who schedule biannual visits to our Columbia office get a deep clean with specialized dental tools.
Early Preventative Care
In your child’s early development, habits like chewing on objects, thumb sucking, or using a pacifier can contribute to the development of crooked teeth. Because of this, it is important to treat crooked teeth in their earliest stages. Orthodontic treatments with traditional braces can benefit children and treat their crooked teeth early before tooth decay or gum disease are problems.
Invisalign aligners can straighten crooked teeth over time. The clear aligners are removable so you do not have any dietary restrictions. With Invisalign, patients are able to clean their teeth much more easily than if they were wearing metal braces. Although younger patients cannot use Invisalign because their teeth are not fully developed, teens and adults benefit from Invisalign treatment.
Porcelain veneers or tooth bonding are effective cosmetic treatments for slightly crooked teeth. Our dental veneers are crafted from reflective porcelain and are a great option for patients who want a natural-looking and long-lasting smile. With the right dental care, porcelain veneers can last patients for over 15 years. Composite dental bonding is made of a resin that is molded and shaped to change the size and shape of your teeth. This resin can be color-matched to blend in with your natural teeth.
