How Invisalign Works

Invisalign treatments use a set of clear, removable and a custom-made aligners intended to straighten up teeth over time. The Invisalign Treatment is painless and easy process that leads you down a path for a healthier smile.

1. Get a smile test:

During your first consultation, your Merrylands dentist can scan your teeth and show you how the Invisalign treatment will affect your smile over time. Using a new technology known as the iTero Element scanner, our Invisalign Consultants can digitally map your teeth and bite with fast precision. This 3D recreation can be used to show you the parts of your teeth that will receive the most benefit from the treatment. Unlike many dentists, this process occurs entirely in-house, so you can get your information faster than ever!

2. Custom Made Aligners

Once your digital Invisalign treatment plan is approved, the digital recreation of your smile is sent to a manufacturer to print a set of custom aligners.

3. Starting your Invisalign treatment

Congratulations, you have recieved your very own, custom made Aligners. You will receive a unique set for every week of your treatment. These aligners will need to be worn for a minimum of 22 hours a day. Failure to wear your Aligners for the required amount of time will only reduce the effectiveness of your treatment. Our Dentists recommend you only remove your Aligners while you eat and clean your teeth.

 

Invisalign vs Braces

Braces and Invisalign are both effective orthodontic treatments that align your teeth and improve your smile.

Traditional braces work by using a metal wire with a metal bracket adhered to each individual tooth. A wire is then connected that your dentist will keep tightening over time with the use of small rubber bands, until your teeth reach the desired position.

In contrast, Invisalign straightens your teeth with without the use of any "permanent" fixture. The treatment uses a series of clear, customized aligners that are easily adjustable as well as removable during its application. The effectiveness of Invisalign is dependent the users ability to maintain the usage of aligners, and unlike tradition braces, leave no stains on the teeth when the treatment is removed.

Dental Crown in Merrylands

dental-crown-merrylands-guildford

One of the common dental procedures available at the Merrylands Dental Clinic is the dental crown. A Dental Crown is actually a “cap”, which is shaped like a tooth, and it is placed over a compromised tooth so that it not only gets size, shape, and appearance back, but it also becomes stronger. At Merrylands Dental Clinic, our dentists take a mould of your tooth and send this off to a lab. Your Dental Crown is then custom made for your tooth using rare materials such as porcelain and zirconia that have a nice tooth coloured appearance.

Why you need a Crown

Our Merrylands Dentists will recommend a Dental Crown in one or more of the following situations:

  • When you have a weak tooth, which may be due to various reasons like due to tooth decay, or it has cracked or broken, then you may need a dental crown. In these scenarios, you may also need a Root Canal Treatment before the Crown is placed.
  • If a tooth is worn down, or it is broken and has lost its shape, then you can regain its shape with a dental crown.
  • When a tooth has been severely damaged, or it is discolored and you are unhappy with its appearance, you may request a dental crown to restore the color and beauty of your teeth. If this is the case, you may also ask our Dentists about Veneers, which fulfill a similar role.
  • If there is a need for cosmetic modification or when the purpose is to cover a dental implant, a dental crown is the way to deal with it.

Benefits of Dental Crown

It is mentioned earlier that dental crown is a great way to get back the appearance, shape, functionality, and strength of your teeth. Here are a few other considerable benefits to look at:

  • Damages teeth can hinder your ability to eat or chew. With a dental crown properly placed over a damaged tooth, you will be able to chew again without concern for the damaged tooth
  • Your damaged tooth is vulnerable so long as it is exposed. A dental crown keeps it safe from further damage and infection
  • Dental crowns are vital to maintain and restore the structural integrity of your mouth.  If you think of your tooth like a house, and then every filling is like a renovation. Each renovation breaks the house a little, including the structural walls, which weakens the tooth. A crown is a cap that strengthens the tooth by replacing all the structural walls. Its the strongest thing we have in dentistry.
