Aesthetic Dentistry, or Cosmetic Dentistry, involves various dental treatments to give you that beautiful natural smile. Aesthetic Dentistry includes:
Orthodontic treatment can improve your dental health and change your facial appearance for the better, and it can boost your self-esteem by improving the way you look.
Orthodontics is the branch of dentistry that specializes in the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of dental and facial irregularities. The practice of orthodontics requires corrective appliances, such as braces, to bring teeth, lips and jaws into proper alignment and to achieve facial balance.
Children and adults can both benefit from orthodontics, because healthy teeth can be moved at almost any age. Because monitoring growth and development is crucial to managing some orthodontic problems well, the American Association of Orthodontists recommends that all children have an orthodontic screening no later than age 7. Some orthodontic problems may be easier to correct if treated early. Waiting until all the permanent teeth have come in, or until facial growth is nearly complete, may make correction of some problems more difficult.
The results of orthodontic treatment can be dramatic — beautiful smiles, improved dental health and an enhanced quality of life for many people of all ages. Treatment typically lasts from 6 to 30 months, depending on age, and the severity of the orthodontic problem. Outstanding results are also dependent on maximizing the coordination of care between you and our practice.
