One reason why people put off getting braces is because they don’t like the idea of having metal on their teeth. Fortunately, there is another option for those concerned about the aesthetics of braces. Invisalignaligners make it possible to straighten your teeth with clear, removable trays.
Invisalign trays help remove gaps and teeth crowding. They also treat bite issues, such as overbites, underbites and crossbites. At the dental office of Dr. Mal Braverman, we can help you find out if you are a good candidate for clear braces in NYC. To schedule an appointment, Call Us At 212-688-3838 Today!
During treatment, we will take a mold of your mouth to develop custom Invisalign trays. Approximately every 2 weeks, we provide new trays to progress the treatment. You can remove Invisalign molds when you brush, floss and eat.
It usually takes about one year to see final results. During that time, you will see the dentist every 6 to 8 weeks for adjustments.
Teeth often turn yellow or stained from sodas, teas and medications. Teeth whitening removes these stains and leaves your teeth bright and white. The process can take place at-home or under the direct supervision of a dentist.
The at-home teeth whitening method involves a custom mouthpiece that the dentist molds to fit your teeth. Youwear the tray, which is filled with bleaching material, for about 30 minutes per day for 2 weeks, though times may vary according to the dentists instructions. Patients often are amazed by how white their teeth become.
If you receive teeth whitening from Dr. Braverman, your gum tissues will be covered for protection. Then, the dentist activates the bleach with a laser or other high-intensity light. Most patients schedule more than one appointment to achieve the desired look.
Brite Smile is a special in-office teeth whitening bleaching method that only takes one hour. The dentist shines a Brite Smile gas-plasma light on teeth, which are covered with the new wavelength-specific bleaching gel.
