Teeth straightening and teeth whitening at your dental Coorparoo
There are many aesthetic issues which can affect the appearance of your smile. If you have healthy teeth and gums, but you are unhappy with the look of your teeth then speak to dental Coorparoo and find out about the different cosmetic dental treatment options that we have available to help correct the aesthetic issues of your smile.
Crooked, wonky teeth can affect your self-confidence and stop you from smiling as openly or as often as you would like to. Overlapping teeth and small gaps between the teeth can also affect the appearance of your smile. If you would like to straighten your teeth and create a neatly aligned, uniform smile then you need to speak to us at Brisbane Laser Dentist and find out about Invisalign at our dental Coorparoo.
Invisalign for teeth straightening
Invisalign is a suitable treatment option for patients who have minor misalignment issues of the teeth. It is highly popular across the world as it is a discreet and convenient method of teeth straightening in comparison to fixed orthodontic braces.
Invisalign aligners are clear thermoplastic aligners which are almost invisible when worn in the mouth. The aligners work as a series and each one is individually manufactured according to three-dimensional scans of your teeth. The aligners are created to place pressure on your teeth to help move them into their desired positions. Each aligner will move your teeth by approximately 0.25mm. They need to be worn in the mouth for approximately 22 hours of the day and are removed at mealtimes when they can be kept in a cleaning solution to allow you to eat comfortably and clean your teeth effectively, before you put them back in your mouth again. The length of the treatment will vary from patient to patient, however, average treatment times are usually from 6 to 12 months.
Another important factor which can affect the appearance of your smile is teeth staining or yellow teeth. Everybody wants a beautiful white smile, but the reality is that we all have a certain extent of extrinsic staining on the surface of our teeth. Extrinsic stains can occur as a result of poor oral hygiene and the build-up of plaque and tartar on our teeth. It can occur as a result of some drinks such as coffee, red wine, black tea and food such as curries and tomato based sauces. Teeth staining can also occur as a result of lifestyle choices such as smoking, chewing tobacco and drug abuse.
If you are looking to whiten your smile then here at our dental Coorparoo you have two different options. We are able to offer you a home teeth whitening kit which we can prescribe for gradual teeth whitening in the comfort of your own home, but if you are looking for a quicker and more convenient treatment option then you can speak to us and find out about undergoing a teeth whitening session at the dental practice itself. Another possible option is to begin with a teeth whitening session at the practice and then carry out subsequent treatments with our home whitening kits. Speak to us at Brisbane Laser Dentist today and find out more about teeth whitening and improving the appearance of your smile.
All treatment carries risks. Individual consultation is required with one of our practitioners to ensure that the treatment is right for you.
