How to Get a Killer Smile
We would all love to have a smile that lights up the room and makes you feel like a Hollywood star, so aside from proper brushing and flossing, what else can you do to achieve your dream look? Read on to find out!
Tooth whitening is one of the most affordable and fast ways to improve the appearance of your teeth. There is a huge range of options for whitening procedures including both at-home and in-chair treatments. The right choice for you will depend on your budget, time constraints and the overall effect you want to achieve. Whitening is a great first step in your smile makeover to give you an instant confidence boost.
Braces are the most popular way to correct tooth alignment for adults and children across Australia. A system of brackets and wires across your teeth helps to slowly guide them into the correct position to reveal a beautiful straight smile when treatment is complete. Braces are an affordable way to realign teeth. Here at Tony Weir Orthodontics, we offer tooth-coloured brackets to give a subtler look.
If you want to straighten your teeth without wearing visible braces, then lingual braces – also known as ‘incognito braces’ are a great option. For this treatment, the brackets and wires attach to the back of your teeth so they are much less noticeable and don’t distort the natural contour of your lips so they won’t affect your speech in the same way.
Invisalign is the future of tooth realignment. This system uses a series of clear, removable brace trays to straighten your teeth with guaranteed results. Your treatment will be mapped out using 3D imaging so your progress is highly predictable, and the aligners are virtually invisible. Our patients find that wearing their Invisalign trays is very comfortable and, as they can be removed for eating and cleaning, they affect your daily life much less than traditional braces.
If you only have one or two small imperfections in your teeth then reshaping or contouring could be the solution for you. This simple procedure can correct irregularities in the shape and texture of your teeth, such as small chips, pointy canines, overlong teeth or surface flaws. Contouring can also be carried out in conjunction with realignment treatment such as braces or Invisalign to complete your smile transformation.
Once you’ve completed treatment to achieve that killer smile, now you have to maintain it! Orthodontic procedures such as braces or Invisalign are highly successful in realigning your teeth and perfecting your smile; however, in order to keep your teeth from shifting back into incorrect position, you’ll need to use a removable appliance (or retainer ) after your treatment. This can be a clear retainer worn at night, a plate retainer for upper or lower arches or a discreet bonded retainer on your lower front teeth.
