Crooked, crowded, widely spaced or protruding teeth can be common in children and adults alike, and may be caused by either tooth irregularities, a jaw misalignment or a combination of both.
Teeth straightening (also known as orthodontic treatment) moves teeth into a better alignment to create a more balanced bite, making it easier to keep them clean and lower your oral health risks.
At EVP Dental in Perth's East Victoria Park, we offer a range of teeth straightening services for teens and adults including modern braces and clear aligners from leading brands.

Misaligned bites (known as a malocclusion) don't always cause oral health problems, but straightening your teeth can have a range of benefits beyond aesthetics:
For younger patients, orthodontic treatment can be particularly effective as the jaws and gums are still developing.
A consultation with our qualified dentists will allow us to determine your individual teeth straightening needs so we can recommend a suitable treatment plan. If your misalignment issues are more complex, we may refer you to a specialist orthodontist in Perth. At EVP Dental, our dentists provide teeth straightening with:
We also recommend wearing a retainer after completing an orthodontic treatment plan, to help keep teeth in their new place.
The thought of traditional metal braces might be off-putting, but modern braces today are smaller, less noticeable and designed to feel more comfortable in the mouth compared to those of the past. That being said, it can still take a few weeks or longer to get used to life with braces, and they can impact on eating and oral hygiene.
Modern braces can be the best treatment option to help balance and align your bite, as well as straightening your teeth.
Book a consultation with one of our dentists and we can help you understand the differences between modern braces and clear aligners.
Our certified Invisalign® providers in East Victoria Park are qualified to provide teeth straightening using Invisalign® and Invisalign® Go clear aligners, a leading alternative to metal braces.
Rather than being fixed to teeth, these aligners can be removed when you eat, brush and floss, so they have minimal impact on your lifestyle. Made from transparent plastic, they can also be virtually invisible on the teeth.Learn More
After your teeth are straightened, we'll provide a retainer that helps to hold your new smile in place for the long term.
Often the reason why patients experience a relapse in orthodontic treatment is because they don’t continue to wear their retainers after braces or aligners come out.
Retainers may need to be worn all day, every day after braces or aligners come out, or alternatively overnight. Our dentists will advise you about how often and how long you need to wear a retainer for.
