TRANSFORMING SMILES


BLOGS


A smile is the surest symbol of joy. It has been rated to showcase the highest positive content and emotional security and is a tell-tale sign that one is content and happy. Every smile is unique to an individual and the situation. Whether it's a wry smile, a flirtatious grin or a hearty laugh, everyone enjoys a natural smile, and everyone looks for reasons for it. A perfect smile, however, may not always be easy to get. You might need some help.

If you have struggled with crooked, crowded or malaligned teeth and braces seem like a nightmare to you, you best believe you are up for a beautiful revelation - presenting, Invisalign.

What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a brand of clear orthodontic aligners that help align and orient teeth. These aligners work as a series of custom-made well-fitted trays that help straighten teeth in as much time as metal braces. Because they are essentially invisible, they are more preferred by teens and young adults as compared to the bulky framework of braces.

Invisalign clear aligners are generally made with specialized hard plastic and in conjunction with 3-D technology making the procedure both painless and non-invasive. The Invisalign digital scan allows you to visualize teeth positions and orientations before the fabrication of the trays.

How long does it take to straighten the teeth?
Usually taking around 10 to 24 months, if you are an adult who has had braces as a kid, it can take as little as 10 weeks with the invisible aligners. A single Invisalign tray is used for 2 weeks after which another tray may be assigned, continuing the cycle until the teeth are aligned perfectly.

An Invisalign aligner should be strictly worn 22 hours a day and should be cleaned periodically.

Are you eligible to get Invisalign?
No matter what age you are, as long as your adult teeth are fully grown, you can consider Invisalign as a valid option. This could be for teenagers too. Invisalign is a viable orthodontic treatment option. Whether it is gap teeth, open bites, and crowded teeth or position of a single tooth, Invisalign may be the best option.

In cases where your dental problems are severe, you may require other type braces to align your teeth. Consult us at Banning Dental Group before ruling yourself out as we are specialists in all type of orthodontics.

How is Invisalign superior to traditional braces?
Invisalign clear aligners come with a wide range of benefits that win the orthodontic conquest against traditional metal braces.

  • Aesthetics: Invisalign aligners are nearly invisible and give better visual regard to onlookers as compared to metal braces. Who would want to land up with a mouth full of metal when you can have a great-looking set of pearly whites?

  • The comfort of wear: Since these Invisalign aligners are made up of plastic, nicks and cuts caused by the traditional metal wires and brackets of braces can be avoided.

  • Convenience for removal: The biggest drawback of metal braces comes with its inability to be removable. Invisalign aligners are more relaxed with the duration of wear and can be removed every time you want to eat.

  • Faster results: Invisalign aligners have been recorded to work faster than braces in straightening teeth and arranging them in great alignment.

  • Predictability: Working with advanced technology, clear aligners straighten teeth more predictably and comfortably. You can see the end result on the digitized image to get an idea of what your teeth would look like after the treatment.

With all the benefits of the Invisalign, there is no doubt that it is an easy and affordable method to regaining your confidence to smile. Yield the welfare of Invisalign clear aligners and make your every day filled with smiles and waves of laughter. As a clear-cut and outstanding alternative to conventional braces, Invisalign aligners are really revolutionary wonders for malaligned teeth! Get yours today!

A beautiful, natural gleaming smile can help you stand out in a crowd of unique individuals and brighten the room as you enter. If this is what you wish for, we may just have the thing for you. Dental veneers can add the right amount of elegance in your life.

Why choose Banning Dental Group?
Dental veneers, also known as dental laminates are thin wafer-like shells that are "attached" onto the visible facial surfaces of the teeth and can be useful for the correction of minute defects on the teeth corresponding to colour and size. They offer brilliant solutions to enhance the appearance of teeth that are unsatisfactory and perceived as undesirable by the patient. Designing the right veneers and preparing the teeth with attention to detail is paramount to achieve the best and most natural results. At Banning Dental Group, we have specialists, knows as prosthodontists, who can treat your teeth to perfection.

There are many stages to planning and designing your smile, which is only achievable with experts and sophisticated equipment such as the ones Banning Dental Group has invested in.

When are dental veneers recommended?

  • Teeth that are discoloured, stained and cannot be whitened

  • Teeth that are misaligned, or irregularly shaped

  • Teeth that are chipped or broken

  • Teeth with uneven gaps between them

  • Veneers can be made in a laboratory or designed by the dentist in a process knows as "dental bonding."

How are dental veneers placed?

  • To create a suitable dental veneer for you, the dentist begins with the preparation of your teeth by reshaping the teeth and providing adequate space for the dental veneer to seat. In some cases, the preparation is not needed at all or minimal. At Banning Dental Group, we offer no-prep veneers as well as conventional veneers.

  • Following the making of the dental veneers, your teeth are etched, and the bonding agent is washed off. You can choose the colour of your new smile, and we can discuss the options with you in detail and show you samples.

  • Dental veneers are then permanently cemented onto your teeth surfaces in a process called bonding.

  • The dentist places the veneers on the teeth to check for flawless fit and shape.

  • Once proper veneer positioning is achieved, a curing light is used to polymerise the dental veneer in place, finalising its adherence to the tooth.

Types of dental veneers
Dental veneers are of two major types depending on the dental material used to build efficient dental veneers, namely porcelain dental veneers and composite bonded veneers. Attention is required to stretch the longevity of the dental veneers. The design and material choices are essential to minimising the risk of compromising the tooth structure. Porcelain veneers resist stains better than resin veneers and better mimic the light reflecting properties of natural teeth.

Porcelain veneers
They are custom-made dental veneers that are made to functionally and aesthetically replace natural teeth made up of porcelain or ceramics.
The benefits of porcelain veneers are:

  • Strong and long-lasting

  • Stain-resistant

  • Biocompatible with gum tissues

Composite veneers (Bonding)
They are tooth-coloured shells that are bonded to the teeth for better aesthetics made up of composite resins.
The benefits of composite veneers are:

  • Less enamel needs to be trimmed than porcelain veneers

  • They take fewer visits to fabricate

  • Cost-effective and is cheaper than porcelain veneers

  • Easily fixable and repairable in the case of damage

Dental implants are brilliant products and are marvelled in the dental industry. Unlike many of its predecessors like dentures and dental bridges, they bring on to the table a fresh new approach to tooth loss. Your dentist makes sure your dental implants check these boxes:

  3. Durability
    With dental implants, there is no fear of loosening over time which could be one of the many drawbacks of dentures or bridgeworks.
    Unlike its predecessors (the dentures or bridges), it is a long-lasting and permanent solution to tooth loss and cannot be unscrewed or removed by the patient. As a result of its high success rate, dental implants also work less costly than other treatment options.

  4. Convenience
    They require minimum maintenance as they eliminate the pains of constant cleaning and cleansing of ordinary dentures.
    They can benefit oral health as they are not anchored to other teeth, unlike bridges. Adjacent teeth do not need to be ground down to support these.

    The apparent benefit of same-day implants is that they can be made the same day. The loading of the crown onto the dental post is done on the same day as a dentist appointment. This saves time and ensures that you will not have to go even a day toothless!
