Get Straight Teeth in Much Less Time

Many people have crooked or unevenly spaced teeth. This can be caused by genetics, aging or an accident. There are many orthodontic and cosmetic dentistry procedures to straighten teeth.

The length of time that it takes each orthodontic treatment to straighten teeth varies from patient to patient depending on your individual factors:  age, bone density, tooth relationships, distance teeth need to be moved, etc.   However, often conventional braces can deliver results faster than Invisalign clear aligners (see, mainly because many people don’t wear their clear aligners as instructed.

According to Dr. Ryne Johnson, prosthodontist, of Newton Wellesley Dental Partners, regarded as one of Boston’s top cosmetic dentists, “there are prosthetic/cosmetic options which can ‘re-align’ teeth without braces or Invisalign.  If you don't have time for your teeth to slowly straighten and move into a better position, veneers or all-ceramic crowns can get the job done in just a few visits.

The other advantage to porcelain veneers is that they can address color as well. Often with braces, teeth will yellow due to the challenge of maintaining ideal oral hygiene during the years of orthodontic therapy.  With veneers you can achieve a straight, white, beautiful smile in a matter of weeks rather than months or years.

Your Smile Can Make You Look Younger

As you age, so does your smile. Along with tooth decay, your teeth can shift as the enamel becomes thinner. Aging can also result in chipped teeth and they wear down looking smaller over time. According to Dr. Ryne Johnson, of Newton Wellesley Dental Partners, who has been regarded as one of the region's top cosmetic dentists, there are several treatments to make your smile look younger--some that can be completed in just one or two visits.

Fix gaps: If your teeth have natural gaps or if teeth are uneven in size, a set of veneers can dramatically alter your smile. Bonding, a one-time procedure, can also help with minor gaps or to elongate teeth, which can create a healthier, sexier smile that takes the years off.

Straighten teeth: When you were younger, a few crooked teeth probably didn't age you much. However, as your face starts to naturally lose volume, crooked teeth may look more pronounced, and even cause your lips to appear thinner. Veneers are a quick solution to slightly crooked teeth, but if you have more time, you might opt for traditional braces or invisible braces, depending on what your dentist recommends.

Get a "lift": If you are losing facial volume, a traditional facelift isn't your only option. Your dentist can use veneers or bonding to build out your back teeth to support your cheekbones and even soften naso-labial folds. After this you will have a younger smile and better cheekbones.
