Results you can get with traditional Braces:
Glenda's Traditional Braces MakeoverGlenda’s case is an example of using orthodontics as part of a more complex treatment plan. Glenda had gorgeous teeth already, we just needed to put them in the right place. First, I aligned the gum levels with traditional braces. After the teeth were in the correct position, we whitened her teeth with KoR Deep Bleaching and I placed three composite veneers on teeth to make them the correct length.
We all know how important a great smile can be for growing children and adults. An unattractive smile can make you or your child self conscious and keep you from fully enjoying life. Misaligned teeth and jaws can also cause pain and adversely affect your ability to chew, talk, and keep your teeth clean and healthy. Using the newest techniques and highest quality materials, Dr. Wehking can help patients of all ages achieve their best-looking smiles.
Orthodontics for Your Health & Self-Esteem
Can you straighten teeth without orthodontics?Minor tooth movement can be performed with crowns or veneers, where the restoration is shaped in order to make the teeth look straight. Orthodontics before restorative procedures allows us to be more conservative, or grind away less (sometimes zero) tooth structure.
Results you can get with Invisalign:With Invisalign it is possible to have straight teeth in as little as 9-15 months. The clear, custom-made aligners are replaced every two weeks - without metal or wires so there's less time in the dentist's chair getting adjustments. Even better, no one will know you're straightening your teeth because it's nearly INVISIBLE! Invisalign is easily removable so you can eat and drink while in treatment, and even brushing and flossing are no problem!
