Every new year brings with it the promise of change, and this year is no different. If your New Year’s resolution is to improve your smile, then you’re in luck. With Invisalign, composite bonding and teeth whitening treatments available, there are a variety of ways to get the perfect new smile you’ve been dreaming of. Our dentists can help you with your smile transformation and Dr Jonathan Fitzpatrick is looking forward to working with patients in 2023 on their smile makeovers. Let’s take a look at some options that can help you achieve the smile makeover you’ve been wanting.
If your teeth are crooked or misaligned, Invisalign could be the perfect solution for you. Invisalign straightens your teeth without wearing traditional metal braces. Instead of metal brackets and wires, Invisalign uses clear plastic aligners to move your teeth into their proper place. The aligners are virtually invisible when worn and can be removed for meals or brushing and flossing. The duration of treatment varies from patient to patient.
We will assess your teeth using advanced 3D scanning technology. The scan will help to create a custom treatment plan specifically for you. You will also be able to see a virtual representation of your future smile.
You will then receive your first set of aligners to be worn for 20 to 22 hours a day, changing to a new set of aligners every ten to fourteen days. Each set of aligners will gently and gradually straighten your teeth.
Once your teeth have shifted into their correct position, you will be fitted with a set of clear retainers to give you a long-lasting smile.
Composite bonding is an ideal solution for those looking to restore their chipped or cracked teeth without the use of crowns or veneers. During a composite bonding procedure, a tooth-coloured resin material is applied directly to the surface of the tooth, after which it is shaped and sculpted into place before being hardened using an ultraviolet light. The entire process usually takes about 30 minutes per tooth and results in a beautiful new smile that looks completely natural. Plus, composite bonding can be used to fix gaps between teeth as well as discoloured teeth that don’t respond well to whitening treatments.
Finally, if your main goal is just brightening up your already healthy smile, then professional teeth whitening may be right for you. Teeth whitening treatments involve using hydrogen peroxide-based gels that work by bleaching out stains on the surface of teeth caused by tobacco use and certain foods and drinks such as coffee or red wine. Professional whitening treatments last longer than store-bought products because they contain higher concentrations of hydrogen peroxide gel than over-the-counter kits do. Most professional treatments take one hour or less and result in immediate results while also providing long term protection against discolouration caused by staining agents like coffee or tea.
Whether it’s Invisalign for straightening crooked teeth, composite bonding for chips and cracks, or professional whitening for brightening up dull smiles – there are plenty of ways to get the perfect smile makeover in 2023! So why not make this year your year? With all these options available, there’s never been a better time to give yourself the gift of a beautiful new smile!
