Improving your dental aesthetics, and your dental alignment, is now easier than ever before thanks to many advancements in the world of cosmetic dentistry. There are many effective and convenient treatments at your disposal, and, today, our Orland Park cosmetic dentists are sharing some information about them. Let’s get started!
Improving dental alignment generally entails closing gaps between teeth, straightening crooked and crowded teeth, and improving bite dysfunction.
The traditional way to treat alignment issues is with metal braces. This system utilizes metal brackets and wires to gradually shift your teeth into better position.
Unfortunately, many people find conventional braces uncomfortable, unsightly, and tough to live with. That is why our dental team is so excited to offer Invisalign as an alternative to metal orthodontics. Invisalign uses clear plastic aligners, rather than metal brackets and wires, to shift your natural teeth. Because the aligners are clear, they practically disappear once in place. Additionally, since these aligners are removable, you’re able to thoroughly clean your smile throughout the treatment process.
If you’re looking for an even faster way to achieve perfected dental alignment, you may want to consider a treatment that covers your natural teeth, rather than moving them over time.
- Dental bonding uses composite resin to close gasp between teeth, and to build up certain dental surfaces in order to make your smile look straighter. The entire dental bonding process can be completed in just one dental appointment. Because composite resin is custom-shaded, it blends seamlessly with existing enamel
- Porcelain veneers are exceptionally thin aesthetic restorations that, once attached to the patient’s teeth, completely resurface the visible dental surfaces. Veneers are custom-crafted prior to being placed; our team personalizes the shape, size, and color of the veneers to look natural for individual. Generally speaking, it takes two to three appointments to craft, adjust, and attach veneers.
Taking the time to consider exactly what you want out of aesthetic treatment will empower you to choose the perfect treatment for your smile. Our Tinley Park cosmetic dentists are here to give you all of the information you need about all of your dentistry options, including those used to treat misaligned teeth.
