Invisalign is a new system of straightening teeth without the use of conventional braces. A series of clear plastic aligners are utilized to create tooth movement. Moving teeth with removable aligners is not new. However, the computer program, which can generate a series of aligners with small changes is the new part. Invisalign is recommended for orthodontic situations with mild to moderate spacing or crowding. They are virtually undetectable, easy to use and comfortable to wear.
Passive self-ligating braces that eliminate the need for elastic or metal "ties". With self-ligating tie-less braces you can experience treatment with less tightening. This new clinically proven treatment approach that aligns your teeth and enhances your facial aesthetics—usually without extractions or rapid palatal expanders. Also, light high-technology shape-memory wires that move teeth faster and require fewer adjustments.
Unlike “Fast Braces” which may damage the roots of the teeth during treatment, self-ligating Damon type braces use a slide mechanism to hold the wire, which allows teeth to move more freely, quickly and comfortably.
Keeping our teeth their whitest is a lot harder than it sounds. With all the coffee, wine, smoking and other foods that have the ability to stain our teeth on a daily basis, even proper maintenance sometimes leaves them a little lackluster. Teeth whitening is an excellent way to restore the natural color of your teeth or even make them whiter than your natural color if you would like.
To accomplish the whitening of your teeth, we utilize a tray whitening system. This tray whitening system is completed in 2 steps. The first step is to make an impression of your teeth. With this impression, we’ll make your custom whitening trays that you can use over and over. Finally, you will take the whitening gel and place it in the tray for a short period of time over a period of a few days. This often results in a whiter smile of 4 - 8 shades!Please contact us today to see if you are a candidate for this type of whitening
