Many of our patients at Levenson Smile already have some idea of what they want the perfect smile to look like. They can imagine the freedom and confidence that their perfect teeth will give them in a social setting. Having teeth that you aren’t confident about can impact your ability to interact in many social settings.
Patients often discuss difficulties with speaking up during an important meeting or laughing with a group of friends. Fortunately, the staff at Levenson Smile help make these dreams a reality every day for our patients, and we can do that for you too.
There are a number of issues that our patients can easily identify by themselves that do not take the years of education that our staff has. For instance, stained chipped, or gapped teeth can all detract from your smile. One of the most common issues that patients have are teeth that do not have the proper alignment. Many patients may shy away from getting this corrected because they have heard that it is too painful, too expensive, or that it takes too long.
Advances in dental science have created a number of different approaches that we can use to fit your needs and get you the smile you want.
Braces have been a tried and true method for helping straighten teeth for decades. Braces are dental devices that have a small bracket that is attached to the front of each tooth. Then a series of bands, wires, or springs can be strategically attached to these brackets.
Braces work by placing regular and continuous pressure on the teeth to gently guide them back into the proper alignment. Braces have come a long way since their inception, and there are a variety of different options to fit your needs. While braces are very successful at being able to correct and properly align your teeth, many patients feel that they take too long, or they do not like that they cannot temporarily remove them for an important meeting or event.
Dental retainers are often used in the last phases of having braces, or for patients who have mostly aligned teeth, but may need to alter their bite position. After braces are removed, teeth can often have a tendency to try to slip back out of place. A retainer is worn at night to help maintain the correct position of the teeth and make sure that the results of straightening your teeth last longer.
Invisalign is an option that works well for many patients to straighten their teeth without having to undergo attaching objects to your teeth. Instead, an impression of your teeth is made, and then a digital program is outlined specifically for you. Once this plan has been approved, it is sent to a lab, where they make a series of different aligner trays to fit your teeth throughout the entire straightening process. Each tray is slightly closer to what your final smile will look like.
The aligners are made of a clear plastic that is generally not noticeable by anybody else. They are designed to be worn for about 22 hours out of every day. This means that you sleep in them and wear them through most of your day. You only remove them to eat and brush your teeth (and the aligners). Patients often like that the aligners are not as visible and that they can be easily removed for short periods of time (like family dinner).
