Aligners are made of clear, strong medical grade plastic that is virtually invisible when worn. Aligners are clear and look similar to tooth-whitening trays, but are custom-made to fit better while moving teeth. Some orthodontists and dentists have referred to them as "contact lenses for teeth."
For many teens, how they look matters. They can put much thought into choosing just the right clothes and styling their hair just right. No matter, if they are headed to school or they, are going to hang out with their friends, their appearance is important. While braces can effectively solve crooked teeth, the idea of having a shiny metal smile can be rather off-putting. At Sylvan Heights Dental, we can provide your teen with a more discreet treatment with Invisalign.
You would like to straighten your teeth, but if you're unsure which route to go after comparing the benefits and drawbacks of braces vs Invisalign. Make a sound selection with an orthodontist's assistance after researching and asking questions. The greatest choice for orthodontic treatment may be Invisalign, but it's still essential that you seek professional guidance from an orthodontist. The kind of orthodontics ideal for you also relies on the kind of orthodontic issue you need to be fixed. At Sylvan Heights Dental, Dr. Jeremiah Leary can check your oral health to determine if ClearCorrect is a suitable option for you.
Whitening the teeth is one of the easiest and most noticeable changes that you can make to improve the appearance of your smile. Whitening, or bleaching, is a non-invasive and simple dental treatment that will alter the color of your tooth enamel to make your smile look whiter and brighter.

Bonding is a procedure where we apply a tooth-colored composite material to a tooth, shape it, allow it to harden and polish it. It can be used in certain situations where a tooth has been damaged or become stained. These are generally minor repairs that can be resolved through this relatively inexpensive means rather than through a more costly dental procedure.
Veneers are very thin pieces of durable tooth shaped porcelain that are custom-made (for shape and color) by a professional dental laboratory. They are bonded onto the front of teeth to create a beautiful and attractive smile. They can completely reshape your teeth and smile and are often alternatives to crowns. Over the years, they have become an ideal solution in treating many cosmetic dental conditions for the front teeth.
Dental crowns are available in multiple materials. However, porcelain crowns are becoming increasingly popular. At Sylvan Heights Dental, we specialize in restorative dentistry and strive to provide our customers with the best available treatment options, including porcelain crowns.
