Alternatives to Braces

Do you have crooked teeth? If so, you’re not alone. Millions of people are not perfectly happy with their smiles for one reason or another. The good news is that there’s not just one solution to crooked teeth. We offer alternatives to braces that can help you gain straighter teeth, and we can do it in more affordable and less invasive ways than braces. 

If you’re interested in top-notch dental care, contact us at Dyer Family Dental. We can offer cosmetic treatments that will straighten your teeth, such as clear aligners or teeth whitening treatments that will make your teeth shine by shades brighter in just one appointment. 

We’re a family dentistry practice, so we can help you with any dental issue regardless of your age or budget. For example, perhaps someone in your family needs a tooth extraction. We’ll perform the procedure with the utmost care and comfort. And we even offer laser dentistry. 

Why Might You Want an Alternative to Braces?

Many patients want straighter teeth, but they don’t relish the idea of going through braces treatment. They think of a mouth full of metal and the frequent and sometimes uncomfortable adjustment appointments. They think about the cost of braces and the time it takes to straighten teeth with braces. They think about all these things and wish there was an alternative. Well, at Dyer Family Dental, there is! In fact, there’s more than one alternative to braces. 

What Are the Alternatives?

Depending on your needs, goals, and budget, plenty of options can keep you smiling with beautiful, healthy, straighter teeth. These include the following and more.

Clear Aligners 

Clear aligners offer many advantages of braces with virtually none of the drawbacks. We custom design them to fit perfectly in your smile, and they are made from clear, smooth, BPA-free plastic that is comfortable to wear. Unlike braces, you can remove them when eating or brushing your teeth or just when attending a special occasion such as a wedding or a date. 

And the best part? They are almost impossible to see on your teeth. They are transparent so that others will see your beautiful smile even during treatment instead of an orthodontic appliance.

Clear aligners can treat many of the same orthodontic issues as braces. They are excellent for minor to moderate alignment issues. And many patients can get straighter teeth in a much shorter period than traditional metal braces. So, what’s not to love about all that?

Dental Veneers

Veneers can give you a brand-new smile. They are thin porcelain shells that we place over the surface of your teeth. Among their many advantages is that they keep your natural teeth in place for optimal health and functionality. They can be less expensive than braces, and treatment takes a much shorter time. It usually only takes a few visits to our office, and you can leave with white, straight, beautiful teeth that will boost your confidence and make you want to smile at every opportunity. 


Our dental crowns in Horizon City, TX, can also be an excellent alternative to metal braces. We can place them over your natural teeth to improve teeth that are damaged, misshapen, or misaligned. We can also put them over dental implants. They are easy to clean – you can just brush and floss around your crown like you do with your natural teeth. And crowns can last for a lifetime with proper care!
