Time To Upgrade Your Smile?

Cosmetic Dentistry OptionsHave you thought about upgrading your smile? Cosmetic dentistry at Winston-Salem Dental Group offers many remarkable possibilities for your smile.

The quickest and least invasive procedure is light teeth whitening. The results are dramatic, and teeth whitening side effects are minimal.

If your teeth are slightly crooked, but require no orthodontic work, porcelain veneers could be the answer. Porcelain  veneers are translucent, wafer-thin covers that are permanently attached to the front of teeth. They correct chips, cracks, stains, and other imperfections.

Another option is clear braces from Invisalign. Clear braces have no wires or metal; in fact, they look like an athlete’s mouthguard. A series of aligners gradually bring teeth into proper alignment. People love them, because they can be removed for meals and to brush your teeth, and are so subtle, others may not realize you’re wearing them.

To find out more about Invisalign clear braces, and how cosmetic dentistry can upgrade your smile, please call us at Winston-Salem Dental Group to schedule an appointment.

Nearly Invisible Teeth Straightening

Clear Braces - Nearly Invisible Teeth Straightening for Winston-Salem Adults

Do you want to straighten your teeth? There are many options, and braces have come a long way in the last twenty years. Options include clear aligners, available from Winston-Salem Dental Group, and braces attached behind your teeth.

The current menu of orthodontic treatments requires a whole new glossary.

Lingual Braces and Clear Braces

Lingual braces are sometimes described as ‘braces behind the teeth.’ These braces can be just as effective at realigning adult teeth as the traditional ‘metal and wires’ kind but are almost completely hidden. Many adults and teenagers who straighten their teeth choose this type of orthodontia.

Clear braces, like those from Invisalign, are similar in appearance to an athlete’s mouth guard. Since they are clear they are very subtle. People love them because  they’re removable, so they can come out for meals and to brush and floss. The should be worn at least twenty-two hours per day.

To find out if you’re a good candidate for lingual or clear braces, contact us today. We can help you determine which type is right for you.

Traditional and Clear Retainers

After teeth have been moved into position, the patient might need to wear a retainer to maintain their alignment. There are several types of retainers available.

The time-tested Hawley retainer consists of a metal wire that surrounds the teeth and keeps them from shifting. The metal wire is attached to a molded acrylic form that fits snugly in the upper mouth (palate) or lower mouth.

Clear retainers are newer on the orthodontic scene. They cover the teeth like a see-through glove and do not need metal bows or clasps. Some retainer wearers believe clear retainers are more comfortable than Hawley retainers.

You don’t need to live with a mouth full of metal to get the beautiful teeth you are seeking. Make an appointment at Winston-Salem Dental Group to find out whether clear braces are right for you. We also provide general and cosmetic dentistry.

Almost Invisible: Clear Braces

Invisalign clear braces produce excellent results in many patients. Unlike traditional braces, there are no wires or brackets or rubber bands. Even better, they are almost undetectable to people who are standing just a few feet away from you. You can get Invisalign clear braces from Winston-Salem Dental Group.

Invisalign clear braces are so undetectable that some people call them invisible. They look a lot like an athlete’s mouth guard. The proper term for such braces is “aligner.” They are made of clear plastic and are worn over your teeth to gradually bring them into alignment.

One of the things that people like best about Invisalign clear braces is that they are removable. You can take them out at mealtime, and when you brush your teeth at night. You should wear them while you sleep, however. For the best results it’s recommended they be worn for at least twenty-two hours each day.

Invisalign clear braces are a great choice for adults who didn’t have braces when they were younger, but don’t want to wear traditional braces at work. They are not, however, for everyone. They are not good for patients who, for example, have severely rotated teeth.

To find out if Invisalign clear braces are right for you, schedule a consultation with Winston-Salem Dental Group. We also provide a full range of cosmetic dentistry services. Make an appointment with us today.
