We all want to have perfectly straight teeth. In this blog, our team at PS Dental in Tigard, Oregon, has put together a list of the three most popular dental procedures that can efficiently straighten your teeth.
If you do not want to have to deal with unsightly metal braces, Invisalign is considered the best alternative. Unlike braces, Invisalign aligners are comfortable, flexible, and invisible. They are custom-made and gradually move the teeth into their correct positions.
Dr. Sepehri uses 3D technology to create a model of the aligners based on impressions of your teeth. Then, the aligners are fabricated using that mold. You will receive a series of aligners to change at home every 2 weeks as the treatment progresses and have to visit the clinic every two months for checkups.
This method of straightening teeth has become very popular from the moment it was introduced in dentistry. This is because it provides results within a shorter span than traditional methods. However, the method still entails the use of conventional appliances like braces.
For the AcceleDent procedure, orthodontists use a vibrating device that pushes the teeth into their correct positions faster. The device is easy to use and provides results when it is used for at least 20 minutes each day.
Lumineers are “no-prep veneers” that are ultra-thin, tooth-colored shells attached to the front surface of the teeth. They can improve crooked, chipped, stained or discolored, gapped, irregularly shaped, or worn-down teeth. They are thinner than traditional veneers and do not require any modification to the tooth structure. This allows you to reverse the procedure and acquire your original smile anytime you want.
All of the above-mentioned dental procedures are considered the best options for straightening teeth to give you the smile you’ve always wanted.
