    All You Need to Know About Invisalign

    Last updated 1 year ago

    There is good news for people whose teeth aren’t as straight as they would like them to be: Metal brackets and wires are no longer the only route to straight teeth. Invisalign provides all the health and aesthetic benefits of straight teeth without the inconvenience of metal braces.

    How it works:

    Invisalign dentists use a series of invisible, individually customized aligners to straighten the patient’s teeth. These BPA-free aligners are changed approximately every two weeks, with each aligner bringing your teeth closer to their desired locations.

    What it treats:

    Invisalign is an effective method of treating widely spaced teeth, crowded teeth, crossbite, overbite, and underbite. Whether these malocclusions occur due to natural shifting, tooth extraction, or incoming wisdom teeth, Invisalign treatment is a proven approach to straightening teeth.

    Who it works for:

    Invisalign is the ideal treatment for patients who want straight teeth without the discomfort and inconvenience of metal braces. Because Invisalign requires a greater degree of patient responsibility—including switching to the next aligner in the series, wearing the appliance for at least 22 hours each day, and removing the aligner for cleaning—young children are not the ideal candidates.

    What life with Invisalign entails:

    Invisalign treatment lasts approximately two to 24 months; but because the aligners are practically invisible, patients benefit from aesthetic improvements at every stage of straightening. Invisalign aligners are removable; so unlike metal braces, Invisalign allows you to enjoy all your favorite foods. Aligners may also be removed to allow for brushing and flossing as normal.

    What its benefits are:

    A healthy smile is a huge confidence booster, and straight teeth are essential to a healthy smile. But the benefits of straight teeth go beyond aesthetics alone. Straight teeth are less likely to experience plaque buildup that can lead to gum disease. Additionally, eliminating bite problems and protruding teeth can prevent damage and allow you to speak more effectively.

    Who Can Benefit from Dental Veneers?

    Last updated 1 year ago

    Many dental patients wish for more beautiful smiles. Knowing that your smile is radiant is sure to make you more confident in your professional and personal lives.

    Modern cosmetic dentistry can address minor imperfections and help you achieve that sought-after smile using dental veneers. Dental veneers are custom-designed porcelain or composite resin shells that cover the front surface of the teeth. Once bonded to the tooth, a veneer protects the tooth and improves its appearance.

    Patients with damaged teeth:
    Veneers can be used to disguise the look of teeth that have been chipped, cracked, or pitted due to injury or wear. Dental crowns can also correct these issues but require extensive preparation of the tooth and removal of enamel from its entire surface. Instead, choose veneers for a quick, natural-looking way to improve your smile’s appearance.

    Individuals who want straight teeth without orthodontics:
    If your teeth are slightly crooked or have small gaps, veneers may be a better option than orthodontics. Dental veneers can be crafted to lengthen or widen teeth, thereby closing up minor gaps and generally improving the shape of the teeth. Small or misshapen teeth can also be addressed with dental veneers.

    Patients who are dissatisfied with at-home whitening treatments:
    Whitening toothpastes and mouthwashes can be effective but require weeks or even
    months of continued use before results become apparent. Professional whitening at the dentist’s office is another excellent option, but you may be looking for a more permanent solution. Veneers can easily cover up the appearance of tooth discoloration and staining caused by tobacco use, age, certain medications, excess fluoride, and dark foods and beverages. The color of dental veneers is customized to each patient to create a natural, dazzling look.

    Contact the dentists at Art of Modern Dentistry to find out more about how dental
    veneers can give you the beautiful smile you have always wanted. Call our office at (312) 361-0683 to schedule an appointment.
