Get a beautiful smile with invisible braces at a Mount Prospect dentist

Would you like to have a beautiful smile with straight teeth?

Have you looked in the mirror for many years and wished you had straight teeth and a better smile? Are you envious when you see people on television with perfect teeth? Do you feel self-conscious when you smile and you’re finally ready to do something about it? There are many dentists and orthodontists in your area. How do you choose the right dentist or orthodontist to help you? There are so many braces options too. Visible braces, invisible braces, invisible aligners, which one is right for you?

You also wonder how long the process takes, how much it costs, and how much pain is involved. Do you feel confused and worried about making this decision?

Making decisions about getting braces shouldn’t be overwhelming, confusing, and time-consuming! 

At Meyer Dental Group, we believe that finding the right braces solution for you should be clear, simple, and fast. Dr. Tom Meyer has over 25 years of experience, including orthodontic treatment. Dr. Meyer is trained and experienced in providing his patients with SureSmile and Invisalign invisible braces. He has years and years of experience and happy, confident smiling patients who are enjoying their straight teeth. Because he wants patients to have an affordable solution for teeth straightening, he also has payment options available for invisible aligners.

SureSmile and Invisalign invisible braces are transparent, removable braces which are designed to straighten your smile and let your confidence shine through! They are designed using advanced software which ensures that they fit comfortably and provide the exact tooth movements needed for your new smile. They are custom-made for your teeth using 3D scanning technology right in the dentist’s office and are clear plastic replicas of your that fit over your teeth. Once printed and delivered, they exert slight force which gradually moves your teeth into their new straighter position. The software design and the digital lab that creates the aligners accurately ensures that just the right amount of pressure is applied at the right time to the right tooth. 

 

You will make regular visits to see Dr. Meyer for a new set of aligners that will continue the pressure that straighten your teeth. The process can be much faster than traditional braces. Because there are no wires and metal brackets, you can continue to eat all your favorite foods and enjoy participating in your favorite sports activities. Unlike the old metal wire braces, aligners don’t catch on your food and are unlikely to cause pain and headaches. For the shortest time to achieve your new smile, you will wear your invisible aligners for 20-22 hours a day, so even at night while you sleep. 

 

Besides gaining a beautiful smile, you will experience other benefits from having straight teeth. Teeth which are crooked or crowded are harder to clean which increases your risk of cavities. They also place you at greater risk for gum disease and tooth loss. Crooked teeth can cause wearing away of tooth enamel, so straightened teeth will also improve your bite, which allows for better chewing, and less wear of your enamel.  All in all, after you have had your aligners, you will be more confident with your smile, and your oral health will improve as well.

 

The best part is no one knows you have braces!

3 Best Ways to Fix Spacing in Teeth

3 Best Ways to Fix Spacing in Teeth

You’ve been taking good care of your teeth over the years. You’ve flossed, brushed, and done everything your dentist, Dr. Tom Meyer, recommended to keep your teeth clean and white.

For the most part, you love your smile – except for the gap between your front teeth.

Spacing in your teeth may be small, but can still make you feel self-conscious. It can be caused by missing teeth, teeth shifting, thumb-sucking as a child, gum disease, or overgrown frenum (the tissue above the two front teeth).

Fortunately, there are several treatments to fix spacing in teeth. But since treatment options vary in cost and effectiveness, it can be tricky to decide which procedure is best for you.

Why Do You Need to Fix Spacing in Teeth?

Besides its effect on your confidence, widely spaced teeth may also affect your oral hygiene. Teeth gaps tend to trap food particles, which trigger bacteria and plaque build-up in your mouth. If unchecked, this may weaken your gums and teeth, causing complications such as periodontitis, tooth decay, and gingivitis.

Gaps between teeth can also result in a misaligned bite. This can make chewing difficult and painful, as well as cause pain in the jaw and ear. Worse still, chewing difficulties may force you to swallow large chunks of food, which can cause digestive problems.

How Can You Fix Spacing in Teeth?

Depending on the complexity of your situation, the following treatments are available to fix spacing in teeth in Chicago:

1. Dental Bonding

Dental bonding is the quickest, easiest, and cheapest way to fix spacing in teeth. Your Chicago dentist will shape and apply a tooth-colored resin material on the affected spot. They’ll then harden it with a special light to secure it in place.

A dental bonding procedure can be completed in a single dentist visit. It doesn’t involve the removal of the enamel, making it a reversal procedure.

Although this procedure is simple and economical, it has a few drawbacks. The composite material may stain over time and cause tooth discoloration. It’s also not as durable as other teeth restorations as the bonding material may break and chip off several years down the line.

2. Veneers

If you’ve discolored and/or chipped teeth that also have gaps, veneers may be your best treatment option. They’re ceramic or porcelain shells that the dentist places and bonds over your teeth to cover gaps and other imperfections.

Veneers are a great option because they do not stain and they are far more permanent than bonding. The color and shape can be custom designed to look and feel more natural.

3. Braces and Invisalign

For more severe cases of teeth spacing, you may need to see Dr. Meyer to prescribe you the right braces or Invisalign.

Both techniques restore your teeth to their ideal position and improve your smile while promoting proper function.

Braces use metal brackets to restore your teeth to their normal position while Invisalign utilizes a set of clear plastic trays. A complimentary in office consultation can help you decide which option would be your best way to go.

As such, seeing an Invisalign dentist like Dr. Tom Meyer may be more appropriate if you want to fix teeth spacing.
