What treatments will be included in your smile makeover?
Invisalign – invisalign or invisalign aligners aim to straighten your teeth with the use of invisible aligners made up of thermoplastic material that are custom made for you to move your teeth in sequence according to your dentist’s treatment plan. Through the use of thermoplastic design, invisalign aligners make slight adjustment to tooth position by gradually causing the teeth to move from the current position to straighten it out. It should be worn for 20 to 22 hours per day. Unlike braces, your food and drink consumption will not have to be restricted. You can also remove your aligners for brushing and flossing to ensure good oral health is maintained.
Dental veneers – dental veneers recreate the natural look of your teeth, based on the smile that you want to achieve. The dentist will begin with a smile analysis to determine the steps to take to achieve the look of your dream smile and will show you a photo of how it will look like. Veneers are made up of several thin ceramic layers which replace original tooth enamel, and an adhesive layer. This process requires removal of a small amount of your teeth enamel, usually less than a millimeter. Then the veneer is bonded to your original teeth by placing a light sensitive in between and hardened using a special curing light. This is a good choice for stained teeth, fractured teeth, and gaps between teeth.
Dental crown – dental crown is often recommended for a weak tooth that needs to be help together or a tooth that is extremely discolored. It is a tooth shaped cap that is placed over the tooth to improve its appearance by restoring its shape and size. The crowns encase the entire visible portion of a tooth that lies at and above the gum line.
The following situations call for dental crowns:
- To protect a weak tooth (for instance, from decay) from breaking or to hold together parts of a cracked tooth
- To restore an already broken tooth or a tooth that has been severely worn down
- To cover and support a tooth with a large filling when there isn’t a lot of tooth left
- To hold a dental bridge in place
- To cover misshapen or severely discolored teeth
- To cover a dental implant
- To make a cosmetic modification
Dental implant – Dental implant is used as a replacement of a missing teeth and is usually made of titanium and is surgically placed by a dentist or an oral surgeon. These screw – like parts are placed into the jaw bone and are meant to imitate the root of the tooth.
Tooth reshaping – Tooth reshaping or contouring is done by removing tooth enamel with a laser before a drill. The misshapen areas are being trimmed, and excessively long teeth are being shortened.
Regardless of the procedure your teeth need to give you your ideal smile, make sure you choose the right experts to perform these procedures for you and if you are one who needs a smile makeover, Blue Ridge Family Dental is the right place.
