Dr Goldstein advises his patients that there are two ways to correct poor position of
teeth in the mouth.
The first option is orthodontics. He advises his patients that are interested in this option
to have Invisalign treatment. Invisalign is an orthodontic option specifically designed
with adults in mind who do not want a mouth filled with metal. We perform this treatment
routinely on patients aged between 25 and 70, Invisalign treatment involves wearing
clear plastic trays that fit specifically to your teeth and are changed periodically thus
gradually moving the teeth into the desired position. On a social level no one will know
you are wearing them, furthermore you can take them off to eat and brush your teeth
which is fantastic!
The second option is to have porcelain veneers for “instant orthodontics” your first visit
would be to take impressions for a wax up which will give you a three dimensional
model of how your teeth will look with the veneers. Once you approve the wax up, your teeth will be prepared for the porcelain veneers. Seven to ten business days later you
will return to have the final veneers permanently bonded to your teeth.
Dr Goldstein states that “porcelain veneers can change the shape, color, and position of
the teeth, whilst Invisalign can only change the position.
