What You See And What You Don’t

invisible braces Houston

If you have had restorations, orthodontia, or a complete smile makeover, you want people to notice the final outcome: your sensational smile. A lot, however, goes on behind the scenes to get you there. Today’s post talks about three important smile makeover components that are not readily apparent when you smile.

Invisible Braces
Not everyone wants to flash a metal smile while your teeth are being straightened. Invisible braces keep your secret safe because it is nearly impossible to see them while they are being worn.

White Fillings

If you have metal fillings, you might be interested in replacing them with composite fillings that match your surrounding teeth. You can’t undo the decay, but you can make the metal disappear.

Tooth Implants

A dental implant is a metal (usually titanium) rod implanted into the bone to replace the missing root after a tooth extraction. The crown and supporting structure are securely and permanently attached to the post. Titanium is super strong and well tolerated by the jaw bone. When the final crown is placed, your new tooth is indistinguishable from the others. Dental implants have many critical advantages over dental crowns. If you are missing teeth, schedule a consultation with Dr. David Montz to discuss your options.

Bright Purple Mouth?

Friendswood Invisalign Remember when Houston adolescents undergoing orthodontic treatment were mortified by their metal mouth? Thankfully, for most young men and women, those days are over. Many Friendswood teens of today wear their braces proudly and make no effort to hide them. They know they don’t need to wait until their teeth are aligned to flaunt a striking smile; they enjoy flashing their brightly-colored braces in all their glory.

Another plus? Just as they mix and match their clothes and shoes, teens can change their wires and bands every time they visit their Pearland dentist or orthodontist. Braces have become another fun way for fashion-forward Alvin and Manviel teens to express their personality.

Of course, there are still some kids (and many adults!) that are not thrilled about having metallic fuchsia bands and neon yellow wires adorning their teeth. Discrete Invisalign aligners are virtually undetectable and can straighten teeth just as quickly and effectively as metal braces. Another benefit of the Invisalign system is that the aligners are not permanently attached to the teeth. Invisalign aligners are easily slipped out for brushing, flossing, meals, and sports. If your Friendswood child plays a musical instrument that defies traditional braces, removable aligners may be the best option.

If you or one of your children need orthodontic treatment in the Houston area, call David C. Montz, DDS at 832-895-5120 to schedule a consultation with David Montz. David C. Montz, DDS is located at 820 S Friendswood Ste 100 in Friendswood.

We provide comprehensive restorative and cosmetic dentistry including porcelain veneers, sleep apnea and sedation dentistry. If you need affordable state-of-the-art dental care in Friendswood, let us tell you about our financing options.

Whatever your age, if you want to straighten your teeth while making a fashion statement, don’t hesitate to get bands to match every outfit in your closet!
