Many adults live with smiles they do not absolutely love. We at Central Dental Group believe that every one of our patients deserves to feel satisfied and confident when they see their smile. In modern society, the smile is a valuable asset capable of improving our quality of life. In many instances, we find that patients with mild misalignment can transform the look of their smile without the need for long-term orthodontic care. During a consultation with Dr. Soll, you can learn more about what we refer to as instant orthodontics.
Instant orthodontics is a treatment we provide to patients from Toronto and surrounding areas after careful analysis of their smile and bite. In the absence of severe misalignment, which can affect the functionality of the jaw, Dr. Soll is often able to design a treatment plan that will disguise the malposition of certain teeth.
Cosmetic treatments for a straighter smile
For decades, crowns have been used as a form of restorative care, placed over teeth that have sustained some type of damage. What many people don’t know is that dental crowns can also be used to improve the cosmetic appearance of teeth, including those that need to be “built up” in order to appear straight.
Crowns are made in a two-visit process which begins with the modification of tooth structure and impressions. Based on a model of the patient’s dentition, a master ceramist carves a beautiful crown to our specifications, sending us a tooth cover that we will bond into place.
Veneers provide another option for slight misalignment. Veneers are thin sheaths of porcelain carved to the precise shape and size we desire. This type of treatment is performed on those teeth that show in the smile and are bonded to the front surface for long lasting beauty. When a tooth is turned or set back, an expertly-designed veneer can be placed to make the tooth appear as it should in the smile, the perfect complement to surrounding teeth.
A type of veneer process, bonding may also be performed to address crooked teeth. Bonding is a treatment that can be completed in a single visit, transforming the smile quickly and efficiently. The procedure often involves no alteration of tooth structure, only slight etching using a liquid conditioner. After placing a putty-like composite material onto the tooth, Dr. Soll strategically shapes and sizes the material to achieve the desired appearance. With laser or ultraviolet light, the material is cured, or hardened, to the tooth, where it can remain for many years.
Misalignment can pose a great many problems with your self-esteem. At Central Dental Group, we have solutions that can bring out your inner beauty quickly and without braces. Call (416) 789 1372 today to learn more about instant orthodontics in the Toronto area.
