ClearCorrect: A Discreet Orthodontic Solution
If you’re tired of crooked teeth but also hate the idea of metal braces, it’s time to check out ClearCorrect.
This alternative to braces involves a series of clear plastic aligners. They’re virtually invisible, and they’re custom-made for your teeth. The result is an incredibly discreet way to correct teeth and bite misalignment issues.
When you opt for orthodontic treatment with the ClearCorrect system, you’ll simply wear an aligner for roughly 22 hours a day. To encourage incremental changes to the positioning of your teeth, you’ll periodically swap out your aligner for the next in the series. It’s as easy as it is convenient! There are no uncomfortable brackets or dietary restrictions — just gentle movement of your teeth that makes a huge difference in your smile.
Plus, if you needed one more reason to love ClearCorrect aligners, they’ve been made right here in the Lone Star State since 2006!
Dental Veneers: A Dramatic Transformation With One Procedure
Hollywood celebrities love dental veneers. That’s because they produce such a dramatic smile transformation with just one procedure!
Dental veneers are thin but durable pieces of porcelain or composite material that are custom-made to look like the front part of a healthy tooth. They’re bonded to your teeth with a special cement to conceal dental flaws that might make you hesitant to smile.
Dental veneers can address:
- Discoloration. This includes stains originating from the inside of your teeth that aren’t effectively removed with teeth whitening treatments.
- Broken or cracked teeth. Because dental veneers add an extra layer of support to the tooth, they can have restorative properties when bonded to damaged teeth.
- Worn down or misshapen teeth. Years of teeth grinding can affect the appearance of your smile. Dental veneers can improve the shape of your teeth.
- Misalignment or gaps between teeth. Dental veneers can make your teeth more uniform in size and shape, which can help your smile appear straighter and fill in gaps.
According to the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, most people getting dental veneers get four or more placed in one sitting. But you can also choose to get a dental veneer placed on just one problematic tooth. It’s up to you!
Plus, Davenport Dental Group offers three different types of dental veneers. We’ll help you find one that fits your needs and your lifestyle.
Tooth Bonding: Fix Minor Problems Quickly And Affordably
Fixing seemingly minor cosmetic issues can actually have a huge impact on the way your smile looks. If you have small chips in your teeth, areas of discoloration, or other small dental imperfections, you may not have to get dental veneers to address them. You might be able to improve the appearance of your teeth with a simple tooth bonding procedure.
When you come to Davenport Dental Group to have a tooth bonded, we’ll first clean and prepare the tooth. Then, we’ll cover or fill in the area with the dental imperfection using a composite material similar to what we use for fillings. After hardening the resin with a special light, you’ll be good to go!
Dental bonding is a quick, easy, and comfortable procedure that’s more affordable than dental veneers.
