Do you have crooked or misaligned teeth that make you feel self conscious? This can also affect your oral health. A bad bite, tooth wear and tooth decay are some of the most common and risky dental problems crowded teeth can cause.
We provide Invisalign, a faster and convenient way for patients of all ages to get the straighter teeth they’ve always dreamed of.

What Is Dental Crowding?
Dental crowding or teeth crowding is a dental condition that affects the alignment of your teeth. It occurs when there’s insufficient space in your mouth for your teeth to fit properly. It can cause your teeth to become crooked, or overlap.
Crowded teeth can affect the functionality of your teeth and make eating, chewing and speaking challenging. Cleaning between your teeth thoroughly also becomes very difficult, resulting in a higher risk of other dental problems and dental pain.
Causes Of Crowded Teeth
Several factors can cause and contribute to dental crowding. These include:
Extended use of a dummy and bottle feeding after the age of 3
Poor oral hygiene
A cleft lip or palate
What Are The Benefits Of Having Straighter Teeth?
Having straighter teeth offers a range of benefits – in terms of both appearance and oral health.
Reduced tooth wear and tear
Improved dental hygiene as teeth are easier to clean
Lower risk of tooth decay and gum disease
Restores functionality (makes chewing and speaking easier)
How Does Teeth Straightening Work?
Orthodontic treatments use dental appliances to straighten and align your teeth.
Orthodontic appliances work by applying a gentle force on your teeth to move them into the desired position and straighten them gradually. Treatment times depend on the complexity of the case. It can take anywhere between 12-18 months or more, but the end result will make it worth it!
During treatment, you’ll be expected to come in for regular appointments, where our experienced dentists will monitor the progress and make adjustments as necessary.
Treatment Options For Straighter Teeth
At Warrnambool Smile Dental, we offer premium clear aligner orthodontic treatment to correct dental issues and straighten teeth.
Straighten your teeth with Invisalign – custom-made, clear aligners that are removable and comfortable to wear. With Invisalign, you can easily and discreetly transform your smile without the hassle of having conspicuous metal wires or brackets in your mouth.
Dental veneers are a simple yet effective solution to treat very minor malocclusions. Attached to the surface of your tooth, dental veneers will cover up minor misalignments and fill in gaps between your teeth. Unlike orthodontic treatments, however, veneers don’t actually align your natural teeth.
The cost of straightening your teeth will depend on various factors.
