Spring Time Is a Great Time to Renew Your Smile!

Thursday, March 20th, 2014

Brad Durham Dentistry in Savannah BlufftonYou sacrifice a lot of things for your kids. If your smile was one of them, Beyond Exceptional Dentistry can help you reclaim a beautiful, youthful smile.

And there’s no time like the spring time to fix a smile that is making you unhappy and get one you will be happy to share for all the special occasions of your kids’ lives.

It’s Never Too Late to Get Straight

Many of us never had the opportunity to get braces when we were kids. Others of us either had straight teeth as kids or got braces, but they got crooked over time.

Crooked teeth can give your smile character, and if you’re happy with them, it’s great, as long as you can keep them clean and don’t get food stuck in them. But if your crooked teeth make you unhappy, you can get them straight at virtually any time in your life, as long as your mouth is generally healthy.

Invisalign is a great way to get your teeth straightened without braces. Instead of metal wires, it uses clear plastic aligners. They fit on your teeth like a mouthguard, one for the upper teeth and one for the lower, if you’re getting both straightened. They’re practically invisible, and you can remove them for eating, cleaning your teeth, or for special occasions. You wear an aligner for about two weeks, then move on to the next one.

Invisalign takes about as long as braces, but it’s a lot more convenient, comfortable, and discreet.

For getting a straight smile faster, we offer “instant orthodontics.” You can get a straight smile in less than a month! In this procedure, we don’t move your teeth, we reshape them so that they’re straight, using porcelain veneers and sometimes dental crowns.

This is also a great way to get rid of a gap between your teeth, or take care of small peg laterals or a single “snaggletooth” that makes you self-conscious about your smile.
