Orthodontics & Braces
Braces can take 2-3 years to straighten your teeth. Porcelain veneers can give you that same look in as little as two to three weeks. Instead of wearing braces, we shape your teeth and apply a thin porcelain veneer. The result is a beautiful, healthy looking smile showing off your new straight teeth. Veneers can also give you a brighter smile than you’ve been unable to achieve with brushing or bleaching. Porcelain veneers are high tech, have similar strength to enamel and we can custom shade colors and texture to match any existing smile.
Typically appliances, brackets, bonding material, archwires and ligature elastics used to straighten teeth as a result from force and pressure. Usually takes average 2-3 years concluding with a natural bite, improving dental health and happiness. This process corrects underbites, overbites, open bites, cross bites, deep bites or a mixtures of these. Crooked and /or crowded teeth are amongst other misalignments experienced with the teeth and jaw and can culminate into TMJ dysfunctions. Braces are often used in conjunction with other orthodontic appliances to help re-adjust towards the natural alignment of the teeth and jaw.
Aligners (Clear Correct and DentoCorrect)
Invisable braces for the image conscious. Clear Aligners are sequentially used for simple cases, typically mild to moderate crowding or in conjunction with more involved cases. Simple and easy to use.
If you have crooked teeth or a crooked smile and would like it to be corrected to a healthy looking smile conservatively ask NewYorkDMD about aligners.
