Have you ever wished that you could correct your bite or straighten your teeth without anyone noticing? Aesthetic orthodontics lets you do just that. Using clear or tooth-colored plastic, Dr. Robirds can accomplish the same smile-enhancing goals as traditional orthodontics but with subtle, almost undetectable fixtures. We also offer teeth whitening procedures, allowing you to brighten your smile quickly and easily.
The Invisalign® system takes the place of traditional braces by using a series of custom-made, clear aligners that gradually reposition your teeth. These aligners are comfortable to wear and can be taken out when you eat or brush your teeth. With treatment typically taking six months to one year, Invisalign® allows patients to achieve straighter teeth and a more aesthetically pleasing smile as quickly as or even more quickly than traditional braces.
Made of porcelain, these brackets can be used as a less-visible alternative to traditional metal braces. These “invisible braces” or as we call them, the Ovation-C series, function in the same way as metal ones and result in the same orthodontic improvement in roughly the same amount of time. In addition, these brackets do not become stained by food or drink, thereby retaining their aesthetics throughout treatment. Their unique design of self closing doors or gates to hold the archwires in even allows for the visits to spread out without extending the total treatment time!
These appliances can be easily removed from your mouth, and many do not have to be worn all day. They include retainers, commonly worn after orthodontic treatment with braces, as well as expanders and tooth movers. Though considered less invasive and less visible than fixed appliances, they still produce substantial smile improvements. Removable orthodontic appliances can be used to correct mild jaw misalignment, improve the quality of a patient's bite, and prevent tooth crowding.
With our advanced teeth whitening treatments patients can achieve beautiful, lustrous smiles in as little as an hour. Teeth whitening treatments are much more effective at lightening teeth than brushing and flossing alone. This is because most stains lie beneath the surfaces of teeth. Teeth whitening treatments employ oxidizing chemicals that can penetrate deep into porous tooth enamel. These treatments produce a chemical reaction that breaks down stains without harming hard tooth tissue. Our whitening system allows you to accomplish your goal of a beautiful and bright smile from the comfort of your home. Dr. Robirds can restore natural brilliance to your smile and help to boost your confidence. Our practice offers a variety of teeth whitening products to meet every patient preference.
