Patients in Mississauga and the surrounding communities want to enjoy the benefits that come with having straight teeth. Straight teeth may indicate a beautiful, healthy smile and patients who have a well-aligned smile often exude confidence. Drs. Shefali Tuli and Mislav Pavelic are dentists at Sherway Dentistry who work closely with teenagers and adults who want to achieve a more beautiful appearance with cosmetic dentistry.
There are two varieties of orthodontics available at Sherway Dentistry for patients to consider for treating malocclusion. They include Six Month Smiles and Invisalign.
Six Month Smiles is a revolutionary alternative to traditional metal braces. While this method does use brackets and wires, they are clear or tooth-coloured, allowing them to blend in better with the natural tooth enamel. The self-ligating wires quickly adjust the teeth near the front of the mouth into proper alignment. Six Month Smiles is most appropriate for patients who have mild malocclusion of the anterior teeth –the teeth that show when patients talk to others, laugh, or smile.
Patients who have moderate malocclusion may be better candidates for Invisalign. Invisalign is a clear aligner tray system that works by gently moving teeth into alignment. The method is a discreet option, as the trays are virtually impossible to notice when patients are wearing them. Patients must wear the trays day and night to achieve the results they desire. While the trays are removable, they should only be removed for eating or care of the smile. This ensures patients get the results they want in the time period they are quoted by their dental team.
To assess the smile and determine the option suited to your needs, we encourage you to book a complimentary consultation appointment and evaluation. This is the perfect time to evaluate the smile, discuss the concerns you have with your teeth, and determine the most appropriate solution.
If you reside in Mississauga, Etobicoke or the surrounding area, and want to learn more about the advantages of using Six Month Smiles or Invisalign to achieve a beautiful smile, contact the team of Sherway Dentistry today to make an appointment at 416.639.2546.
