Straight teeth and a revitalized smile may no longer need to come from a mouth full of unattractive wire and bracket braces. Enhancing self-esteem and physical confidence, invisible braces offer an esthetic and barely visible alternative to conventional wire/bracket braces. The clear aligners (also called clear braces) are manufactured using advanced computer technology that predicts tooth movement, making it possible for the removable orthodontic appliance to gradually straighten teeth.
Conditions Treated with Invisible Braces
While invisible braces may not be suitable for certain misalignment cases or the complex bite problems that are better addressed by traditional orthodontics, invisible braces can be used to treat the following orthodontic conditions:
Overbite or overjet
Crowded or widely spaced teeth
Invisible braces are designed for adults and older teenagers; invisible braces are not recommended when baby teeth remain. Children and younger teenagers faced with orthodontic problems will require traditional metal braces with brackets/wires on the front of the teeth. However, only your dentist or orthodontist can determine if you are a candidate for invisible braces. The clear aligner treatment was designed primarily for adults due to the need for absolute and rigid cooperation; the trays are worn 22 hours per day and should not be forgotten or lost.
Laser Whitening is a simple procedure that usually takes less than an hour and can erase years worth of stains on teeth that have been exposed to tobacco smoke, coffee or red wine.
There are many advantages of using laser teeth whitening to brighten up your smile. For starters, it costs much less than porcelain teeth restoration procedures. The results appear instantly after the treatment so that you can see for yourself that it actually worked. It can give you the brighter smile that you’ve been looking for all this time.
Many patients are concerned about possible pain and discomfort during the procedure. But the majority of patients, even those with the most sensitive teeth and gums report feeling no, or very little, discomfort while the procedure in under way. The laser does not heat teeth, nor can it cause damage when used by a professional dentist with years of experience. Laser tooth whitening has been studied for years by dentists and medical researchers and the results of studies and real-life clinical experiences show that it is a very safe procedure with a very little risk of complications.
