Crooked Teeth

Are crooked teeth affecting your confidence, but you don't want traditional braces?

We can conceal minor misalignment with dental solutions like veneers and correct more severe cases with Invisalign®.

See how Matthew A. Turner D.D.S., P.C. in Kansas City, MO, has been transforming crooked teeth without braces for over 30 years.

Why Correct Crooked Teeth?

During your consultation at our Kansas City, MO, office, our dentist will examine your bite to determine how crooked teeth affect your smile. Patients may experience the following benefits from correcting their crooked teeth:

Improved Appearance

Crooked teeth can undermine the beauty of your smile. Often, patients with crooked teeth avoid smiling because they feel self-conscious about their appearance. If you are unhappy with the way your crooked, misaligned teeth make you look, you may benefit from treatment.

Better Oral Health

Crooked teeth can make it hard to reach certain areas when brushing and flossing. This can lead to a build-up of bacteria and may put you at risk for developing decay or gum disease. Straight teeth can result in more effective cleaning.

Balanced Bite

When your teeth are crooked, you may have a misaligned bite which can result in speech problems, headaches, jaw discomfort, and excessive biting of the tongue and cheek. Without treatment, a TMJ disorder or other serious oral health concerns may develop. A more balanced bite can prevent these costly and painful problems from developing.

Do I Have to Get Braces?


While many patients may assume that metal braces are the only option to fix their teeth, Dr. Matthew A. Turner can provide cosmetic treatments to correct both superficial and substantial needs, including Invisalign and porcelain veneers. His diverse skill set allows him to customize your treatment for the best possible results.

Should I See an Orthodontist?


While Dr. Turner doesn't perform traditional orthodontic treatments like braces, he is a qualified Invisalign provider who can offer you a wider variety of dental solutions than a traditional orthodontist. If patients don't qualify for Invisalign, Dr. Turner can use cosmetic dentistry to conceal minor misalignment.

Your Treatment Options

While the best solution for your crooked teeth will be based on the extent of the issue and your overall goals, several cosmetic dentistry treatments can be performed to address crooked teeth:


A popular alternative to traditional braces, Invisalign is an orthodontic option that can straighten your smile using aligner trays. The aligners are clear, BPA-free plastic for more discreet, comfortable, and often faster treatment. Invisalign is an ideal solution for many teen and adult patients with misaligned teeth who have avoided traditional orthodontic options due to social concerns.

Porcelain Veneers

Veneers are thin shells that cover the entire front of the tooth. Porcelain veneers may be a viable option if you only suffer from slightly crooked teeth or a single tooth that is misaligned; however, it is important to remember that veneers will only conceal teeth, not correct the misalignment.

Dental Bonding

Like porcelain veneers, dental bonding is designed to cover dental imperfections; however, bonding is a more affordable alternative. Dental bonding uses a composite bonding material that is molded over the tooth to improve its appearance.

Smile Makeover

If you wish to target multiple cosmetic concerns in addition to crooked teeth, a smile makeover may be the ideal solution. Our dentist can combine treatments and create a custom plan to transform the appearance of your smile, once oral health concerns like tooth decay and gum disease have been addressed.

We Use Digital Impressions

Instead of traditional putty impressions that can be messy and uncomfortable, our Kansas City office uses the iTero® scanner to capture 3D images of our patients' teeth and gums digitally. With this technology, impressions are faster and more accurate.
