Technology For A Better Smile
Today, orthodontic care is light-years ahead of where it was 30 years ago. With new techniques and new advancements in treatment options, getting a great smile is more comfortable and faster than ever. From custom clear aligners and lingual braces to smaller brackets and clear ceramic brackets, finding the right treatment option for your smile is as easy as – well, smiling.
At Silver Smiles Orthodontics, Dr. Meagan is a certified Invisalign provider, meaning she has the knowledge, experience, and skill to transform your smile using virtually invisible clear aligners. These custom clear aligners gradually move your teeth into their ideal position by applying specific pressure to specific teeth at just the right time. In order for Invisalign to really work, it’s important that patients wear their aligners for at least 20 to 22 hours a day.
So, if you’re thinking of starting treatment, now’s the perfect time to do it. And with the free consultation we offer here at Silver Smiles, there’s nothing stopping you from finding out more. Don’t wait! Schedule your free consultation today with Dr. Meagan. During this visit, we’ll examine your smile and take X-rays and photographs before determining which treatment options are best for your smile.
If you’ve ever had a traditional smile impression taken, you know that it’s pretty uncomfortable. Luckily, there is now an advanced alternative to the messy goop impressions—the iTero digital scanning system.
Using a small handheld wand, the iTero scanner uses optical technology to create 3D scans of the teeth and the gums in minutes. Not only is the process much more comfortable, but it also allows for much more accurate results! The iTero digital scanner allows our team to create a digital model of your smile that is more accurate, precise, and comfortable than a traditional impression. This means that you have a better experience with us and more personalized treatment. And since 3D scans are easier for patients to understand, it also helps you to be informed and empowered in your treatment.
Using the 3D scans generated by the iTero scanner, we can also create a simulation of what your future smile will look like as you move through treatment and once you’ve reached the end!
