Invisalign takes a modern-day approach to straightening your teeth. The treatment uses a series of aligners that are custom-made just for you. This method of alignment is known to be comfortable since the aligners are thin and transparent, and it's not as noticeable as other methods. Daily use of the Invisalign aligners will steadily shift your teeth into the correct position, providing you with a beautifully straight smile.
Before beginning your treatment, you and our dentist at My Dentist will choose a plan which properly suits your needs. Learn more about the steps we take for this procedure at our Duncan, Oklahoma, dental office, below.Read more about Invisalign
Lumineers may be suitable for teeth that are chipped or cracked, stained or discolored, misshapen, worn or slightly crowded. They're digitally designed to be ultra-thin (about as thin as a contact lens), so they can be applied seamlessly over your teeth to deliver a natural looking smile. This technique is best used with patients who have spacing in their smile and only minor tooth rotations.
Lumineers are a popular veneer option because they are a "minimal preparation" or "no-preparation" procedure. Lumineers do not require the dentist to grind, cut or file down any tooth structure for proper placement. The veneers are adhesively bonded to the facial (front) surface of the teeth, making the process as much of a minimally invasive procedure as possible.
The Lumineers Two-Visit Process
After your initial consultation, your dentist will take an impression of your upper and lower teeth and send the mold to a laboratory along with photos and other records that ensure the very best results for you. Unlike traditional veneers, there is typically no need for extensive drilling, shots or acrylic temporaries.
On your next visit, generally a couple weeks later, your dentist will place your Lumineers. Before they're bonded in place, it's important to try them on to ensure a good fit. Teeth are then moderately etched (covered with a protective coating) to prepare for placement and then bonded one by one.
