What are ClearSmile Alingers?
Clear Smile is a series of transparent, custom made aligners that can treat widely spaced and misaligned teeth. As they are removable, they are a non-invasive option compared to traditional fixed appliances.
What is involved as part of treatment?
Do you have a missing tooth or several missing teeth? Replacing missing teeth as soon as possible is important when it comes to your overall health as well as your dental health.
Do you have broken, damaged or chipped teeth? Ceramic crowns are one of the best treatments when it comes to salvaging and strengthening broken teeth. Dental crowns emulate the shape of a real tooth, fitting over the top of the damaged tooth. There is no need for impressions or follow-up appointments – walk-in and walk out with a new smile!
The benefits of cosmetic dentistry extend beyond that which are aesthetic, helping many patients ‘reset’ their dental health and allowing them to implement significant changes for the future.
How do missing teeth affect my facial structure?
When you have a missing tooth, this has a profound impact on your facial structure and there is a lot more going on than you might think.
Your jawbone requires constantly stimulation so that its density and form can be maintained. All day, everyday your teeth make constant contact with each other and this helps to encourage the bone to rebuild itself continuously, which is how your jawbone is maintained. So when a tooth is lost, this stimulation cannot occur in the area where the tooth has been lost and the height, width and volume of the alveolar bone is lost. In fact, according to DearDoctor, there is a 25% decrease in the width of bone during the first year of tooth loss and up to a total of 4 millimetres in height over subsequent years.
What is an Inman aligner?
Inman aligners are clear plastic retainers with 2 spring loaded aligning bars that fit over your four front teeth. As opposed to traditional brace models, the Inman Alinger places continuous gentle pressure, easing your teeth back in place.
Are you unhappy with a certain aspect of your teeth? Perhaps you have a cracked, damaged or chipped tooth that needs a crown? Or maybe your teeth have become discoloured overtime and you’ve lost a bit of confidence and the desire to smile?
