Orthodontics (Metal Braces)
Metal braces have been used for decades to correct crooked teeth or a bad bite. They consist of brackets that are fastened to your teeth by means of a special adhesive and then connected using wires. Metal braces are highly effective and are the recommended course of orthodontic treatment for severe misalignment. You can, however, take comfort in the fact that they have become smaller and more comfortable in recent years.
Metal braces have to be tightened from time to time in order to deliver the desired level of correction, so you will have to visit Dr. Bernstein regularly over the course of treatment. Metal braces are not removable, so patients have to pay attention to their oral hygiene in order to prevent decay from occurring around and under the braces. Once treatment is completed, though, you will have beautiful, straight teeth and a properly functioning bite. To learn more about orthodontics, read our other pages: Orthodontics Overview.
Porcelain veneers are used to correct cosmetic dental issues like chipped, discolored, gapped or slightly misaligned teeth. These small issues often do not require expensive procedures like implants or crowns. Veneers are bonded to your existing teeth and look completely natural. You can even go several shades lighter than your natural teeth if you like.
If dingy, dull teeth are keeping you from smiling, Dr. Bernstein can restore your
smile, using Zoom!® whitening treatments. This system makes use of gel-filled trays containing a powerful bleaching ingredient and an LED light that delivers no harmful UV rays. The procedure is done in four 15-minute sessions and delivers significantly better whitening results than the old three-treatment method.
Not all orthodontic issues require the use of metal braces. Unless your misalignment is severe, you may be a candidate for Invisalign clear aligners. They are virtually undetectable and you can remove them to brush, floss and eat. Dr. Bernstein will be happy to talk with you about using Invisalign aligners to give you the smile you deserve.
A smile makeover is any procedure, or combination of procedures, designed to give you a dazzling smile. Treatments include whitening, crowns, braces and porcelain veneers. Assuming that your dental health is generally good, Dr. Bernstein can work with you to devise a course of treatments that will give you a beautiful smile.
