How To Optimize Your Invisalign Results with Complementary Dental Treatments

17 Aug 2018 by  Ali Long in Invisalign

Invisalign can help people of all ages improve a variety of functional and aesthetic concerns with their smile. This cutting-edge orthodontic treatment has numerous advantages over metal braces and allows patients to straighten their teeth, correct overcrowding and gaps using discreet and comfortable clear aligners.

Invisalign is among the most requested procedures available here at Long Island Implant & Cosmetic Dentistry. Depending on your concerns and desired outcome, we may recommend complementary cosmetic dentistry treatments to help you achieve optimal results.

Achieve Optimum Results with Invisalign

The custom-fabricated aligners move the teeth over a period of months by applying gentle yet consistent pressure. Because the trays are practically invisible and able to be removed for brushing, eating and special occasions, Invisalign is the treatment of choice for millions of Americans.

Invisalign can effectively correct many common orthodontic concerns, but it does have its limitations, which is why patients may be interested in the following procedures after their Invisalign treatment is finished.

Teeth Whitening

Professional tooth whitening is an excellent option for brightening up dull or discolored teeth after your Invisalign treatment. We offer both take-home kits and in-office treatments that use concentrated carbamide peroxide to gently lighten tooth enamel by up to 7 shades. Discoloration is most typically caused by coffee, tea, wine and smoking, though genetics and age can also factor in. For a luminously bright smile in just one visit, we’d recommend our in-office teeth whitening with Sinsational Smiles.

Dental Crowns

Crowns are custom-designed tooth-shaped caps that fit over a damaged, weak or misshapen tooth. This type of dental restoration can significantly enhance aesthetics after your bite is corrected with Invisalign. A crown can restore the strength, shape and appearance of a tooth that has been heavily filled over the years. Crowns can also supplement Invisalign by correcting the alignment of problematic teeth that did not shift completely into place. Of all restoration materials used in dental crowns, ceramic is the most natural-looking, since it closely resembles your own tooth coloring. Our Long Island practice offers high quality CEREC crowns that are manufactured at our office in just one visit.

Porcelain Veneers

A veneer is akin to a new face for your tooth. They are a superior option for correcting a tooth that is too small, too large or is resistant to dental whitening. Porcelain veneers are practically undetectable from your natural teeth and can add the finishing touch to a smile makeover with Invisalign. Once the Invisalign treatment is complete, veneers can create a beautiful, white smile that is uniform and cosmetically pleasing.
