Dr. Jacob Wallach is a comprehensive general dentist in Nyack with advanced training and experience to straighten teeth so that they look beautiful, feel comfortable and stay healthy. Our solutions for crooked teeth can include treatment options with or without braces.
Options for straightening crooked teeth
- Invisalign – Dr. Wallach is an Invisalign dentist in Nyack, offering discreet treatment for straightening teeth without traditional metal braces. Invisalign is available for adults and teens and is one of our most popular treatments.Invisalign uses a series of virtually invisible, removable aligners to gently reposition teeth. Studies indicate that patients who use Invisalign vs. those who wear metal braces may be able to maintain better oral health throughout their treatment. This is because Invisalign patients can remove their aligners so that they can brush and floss normally to avoid plaque build up.
- Porcelain Veneers – Dr. Wallach may use porcelain veneers to cover the front and sides of teeth, correct minor alignment issues, or close gaps between teeth, giving them a more symmetrical and uniform appearance.
- Dental Crowns – Dental crowns are similar to veneers, except that they cover the entire tooth like a cap. Dr. Wallach uses dental crowns in cases where there are also issues with the health and stability of the tooth, such as tooth decay, a broken tooth or worn tooth.
- Cosmetic Bonding – Cosmetic bonding is an excellent option for improving the appearance of crooked teeth. Applied directly to the tooth, this procedure is quick and cost effective for treating teeth, but is not permanent and may need to be touched up in the future.
