Meet Dr. Jacquie

Meet Jacqueline Fulop-Goodling, D.M.D., P.C.

Dr. Jacquie Smiles started her career in orthodontics/dentistry at Boston University and after graduation became the first female and youngest Director of B.U.’s Predoctoral Orthodontic Department. She is now part of the Invisalign prestigious faculty department, this means she is among one of the most experienced Invisalign providers in the world, offering her patients the best quality of care. “Being a faculty member and brand ambassador for Invisalign was easy and fulfilling because I was able to discuss, teach and have brainstorming sessions with doctors and students all over the U.S. & rest of the world. It’s something that comes naturally to me and therefore never consider is working,” she says. Dr. Jacquie received this acknowledgment through hard work, perseverance, and expanding her vision, which is to always push the limits on what to achieve next. Dr. Jacquie says, “My favorite patients are the ones with smiles referred to me by other doctors asking me to treat them with Invisalign. It is a great compliment to have my colleagues believe in me and entrust their patients with me, my office and my team.”

She is a VIP Platinum Invisalign Provider and has been recognized as a top provider every year since 2003. In September 2005, Dr. Jacquie Smiles became Invisalign’s Spokesperson for a hygiene campaign. In 2009, she became a Spokesperson for Invisalign Teen treatment which was featured on the Tyra Bank’s show.

After being the Director of the Pre-doctoral Orthodontic Department at Boston University, Dr. Jacquie returned to New York to be with her family. Over the years, she opened several offices in Manhattan, Long Island, and in upstate NY and New Jersey. Dr. Jacquie enjoys the teaching aspect and says, “To teach is to learn twice. Being a professor while having a clinical practice is having the best of both worlds because you can take real-life experiences and apply them to your curriculum.”

Since then, Dr. Jacquie Smiles presented a four-year double-blind study on identical twins, comparing one twin being treated with braces and the other with Invisalign. As an Invisalign professor, Dr. Jacquie teaches and certifies students and orthodontic residents in many of our dental schools and universities in the U.S. and Canada. She has also taught over 14,000 doctors, students and their teams in multiple areas of orthodontics throughout the world including North and South America, Europe, Asia, The Caribbean, and the Middle East.

Dr. Jacquie’s most rewarding experience is one that she says she witnesses all the time when she removes a patient’s braces or finalizes their Invisalign orthodontic treatment. At the beginning of their treatment, when Dr. Jacquie evaluates a patient for the first time, she says that many patients don’t reveal their true self. Often they are covering their mouth and hiding their smile. Dr. Jacquie says, “The end of treatment is always the most rewarding when I witness how my patients sit up a little taller in my dental chair and become more confident, radiant and expressive. This feeling simply never gets old!” This moment is what Dr. Jacquie says is the most rewarding feeling.

Dr. Jacquie’s mission is to brighten the world one smile at a time. She achieves this through educating her patients and creating her signature broad smile design. Dr. Jacquie says, “What I do with my patients is the perfect balance between science and art.” She explains to her patients the science behind what is occurring throughout their treatment, while still showing the beauty of the individual in each case she creates.

When Dr. Jacquie is not busy being an orthodontist or creating multiple dental related patents, she is giving back to the community. She’s been part of Jorge Posada’s former craniosynostosis awareness foundation, autism awareness and the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers run. Annually, Dr. Jacquie attends and participates in the Tunnel to Towers run through the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel which is an event commemorating a firefighter Stephen Siller who laid down his life to save others on September 11th and other heroes we lost that day. It helps build homes for wounded vets that fight for us and allow us to do what we love; for Dr. Jacquie that is creating beautiful smiles.

Testimonials / Reviews

Dr. Jacquie Smiles offers expert Invisalign services in NYC

Invisalign® is a state-of-the-art alternative to braces that is virtually undetectable to other people. Invisalign straightens your teeth, not with brackets or wires, but with a series of clear, customized, removable appliances called aligners. Many NYC patients find these type of "braces" more convenient as they are removable and not permanent fixtures.

We’d Love To Hear From You!

After months of deliberation and years of crooked teeth, Dr Jackie finally convinced me to just throw down, and get invisalign. This has honestly been the best decision i've ever made, with my teeth looking incredible in just 16 months. While I still have a bit left to do(about 6 months), you can tell the difference from the first month, and people haven't stopped commenting on how nice my teeth look. In addition to the nice teeth, the staff here are great, and all know their stuff. Abby, Marie, and Dr. Jackie all play their part, and are all knowledgeable and skilled professionals who clearly take pride in their work. They conveniently have a satellite office in my hometown of Monroe, NY, and are very flexible with scheduling appointments and working around my schedule now that i've moved to Boston. I honestly went from being beyond ashamed of my smile (and VERY worried since I was nearing the end of my college career when I started) to loving taking pictures. If you're on the fence - do it, and theres no better place than Dr. Jackie's office.

-Arthur W.


We have both our daughters going through the process with Dr. Jackie and her team. The results we have seen with their smiles is amazing. We absolutely made the best choice going with Dr. Jackie and her team. From the consult through all of the different phases Dr. Jackie treated our girls like family. Her assistants are always great, friendly and kind. They are patient and explain every step of the process. The office staff put a great financing package together and always go out of their way to work with us. If you need braces don't go anywhere else. Go to the best to see Dr. Jackie and her team.

Invisalign Overview

Dr. Jacquie Smiles offers expert Invisalign services in Monroe

Invisalign® is a state-of-the-art alternative to braces that is virtually undetectable to other people. Invisalign straightens your teeth, not with brackets or wires, but with a series of clear, customized, removable appliances called aligners. Many Monroe patients find these type of “braces” more convenient as they are removable and not permanent fixtures.

Invisalign Story

What Is Invisalign?

Invisible Aligners can help you get the great smile you’ve always wanted because they are… Invisible! So no one can tell you’re straightening your teeth. So now you can smile more during treatment as well as after.

Removable So you can eat and drink what you want while in treatment, plus brushing and flossing are no problem.

Comfortable Because it has no metal to cause mouth abrasions during treatment. And no metal and wires usually means you spend less time in your doctor’s office getting adjustments.

Invisalign Aligners

What are the Invisalign aligners?

Aligners, also called “repositioners” or “contact lenses for teeth,” look similar to some whitening trays, but are made of a clear, strong, medical-grade plastic polymer that is virtually invisible when worn. They are made utilizing a 3-D computer imaging technology which was first envisioned in 1945 by Dr. H.D. Kesling. Dr. Jacquie Smiles offers Invisalign Aligners to her patients in the Monroe  area. These aligners are removable for daily function and still allow you to eat your favorite foods and continue an active, physical lifestyle. They do not hold you back in any way as they are seemingly invisible to the average eye and you will never feel self- conscious when attending events and functions. Through an Invisalign treatment you will still be able to maintain regular, healthy oral hygiene and upkeep.

Invisalign FAQ

Frequently asked questions about Invisalign for patients in Monroe

The Invisalign system is the virtually invisible way to straighten your teeth and achieve the dazzling smile you’ve always dreamed of. Using advanced 3-D computer-imaging technology, Invisalign depicts your complete treatment plan, from the initial position of your teeth to the final desired position. Then a series of clear aligners are custom-made for your teeth – and your teeth only – to shift them little by little into proper placement. Each aligner is worn for about two weeks before being replaced by the next in the series, until the final position of your teeth is achieved. Your Invisalign treatment time will be determined by your doctor, based on your specific needs.

New Procedures

Always on the Cutting Edge of New Technological Advancements

Dr. Jacqueline Fulop-Goodling, a New York Orthodontist and Invisalign invisible braces specialist and spokesperson announces new dental orthodontic procedures at Monroe. Dr. Fulop Goodling’s mission is to provide the highest quality of orthodontic treatment for her patients.

Invisalign Teen

Designed to fit in your life

Invisalign Teen is the virtually invisible way to straighten your teen’s teeth without the restrictions that come with metal braces. Rather than wires and brackets, Invisalign® uses a series of clear, removable aligners that have been custom-made for your teen’s teeth. Your teen simply wears them over their teeth and changes them out for a new set of aligners every two weeks. Little by little, your teen’s teeth gradually shift into place, achieving that confident smile.

Orthodontics Overview

What Encompasses Orthodontics?

Orthodontics is a part of dentistry that specializes in the prevention and treatment of dental and facial irregularities. The practice of orthodontics requires professional skills in the design, application and control of corrective appliances to bring teeth, lips and jaws into proper alignment and facial balance. Dentists are required to have an additional 2-4 years of full-time education for an orthodontic specialty degree.

About Braces

Dr. Jacquie Smiles offers braces for adults, teens and kids in Monroe area.

Your dentist may have discussed with you the benefits of having healthy teeth and proper jaw alignment. Crooked and crowded teeth are hard to clean and maintain. This can result in tooth decay, worsen gum disease and lead to tooth loss.

Orthodontic Guide

The First Step

Your primary dentist may recommend at some time during your lifetime that you visit an orthodontist. This can make some patients nervous, but there is no need to be. Orthodontists are specialists that diagnose, treat and prevent dental irregularities. Orthodontists provide services such as braces, teeth whitening and cosmetic dentistry. Braces is specifically a common reason to visit the orthodontist office, since many people require assistance to align their teeth.

Orthodontic Emergencies

Emergency Care

As a general rule, an emergency appointment may be made when there is severe pain, a loose band, a broken wire or something sticking out that you can’t take care of. It’s important to know the names of the parts of your appliances. It will help, when you phone our office, to be able to identify what part is broken or out of place.

AcceleDent Aura

acceledent-aura

AcceleDent Aura is a new treatment that is currently offered in our Monroe dental office to accelerate treatment times for braces and orthodontic appliances.

Instead of wearing traditional braces for up to two years, AcceleDent Auro may reduce the length of treatment for adults, teens and children to less than one year with faster orthodontics to help you adjust and straighten your teeth in no time. AcceleDent is approved by the FDA and has been used by many patients worldwide. You can now speed up your tooth movement by up to 50% using this pain-free, easy appliance. Combined with existing orthodontic appliances like Invisalign, patients can use Acceledent Aura to potentially cut their treatment time in half since it is compatible with most types of braces.

Get Invisalign Teen for Your Child in Manhattan NYC

Invisalign Teen in Manhattan NYC

Why Invisalign Teen is the perfect orthodontic treatment for busy teens

Orthodontic treatment with Invisalign Teen is the perfect option for busy teenagers in Manhattan, NYC. Dr. Fulop-Goodling and the team at Dr. Jacquie Smiles are here to tell you why Invisalign Teen is the best possible option for teens.

No one will know

One of the most appealing aspects of Invisalign to teens is that the aligners are made of a smooth, clear plastic that is virtually invisible. Your teen’s friends won’t even know they are undergoing orthodontic treatment with Invisalign Teen, so there is no reason to feel self-conscious. Your child will have the self-confidence to smile not only after their treatment, but during it, as well.

Let them eat popcorn!

Your child probably has plenty of friends who are unable to eat popular foods for teenagers like gum, popcorn, tortilla chips, etc. You shouldn’t have to limit what your growing child can eat, which is why Invisalign Teen is perfect for teens who need orthodontic treatment. The clear aligner trays are completely removable for eating (and maintaining oral hygiene), so your teen won’t have to worry about breaking a bracket on their favorite foods.

Don’t stop being a teen

Some of the best parts of being a teenager is immersing in activities they love like sports and music. But it’s hard to enjoy them if they are worried about cutting their lips on a bracket when they dive for a ball or try to hit a note on the clarinet. Invisalign Teen is designed to allow teenagers to continue to be teenagers – they can eat what they want, play what they want, and smile when they want.

If you want to provide your child with cutting-edge orthodontic technology that will straighten their teeth without cramping their style, then Invisalign Teen from Dr. Jacquie Smiles in Manhattan, NYC is what you’re looking for. Contact Dr. Jacquie Smiles today at: 646-781-8153

Dr. Jacquie was in the first group of orthodontists ever certified with Invisalign, which was at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in midtown Manhattan. Since 2005, Dr. Jacquie was asked to be Invisalign ’s National Spokesperson for a hygiene campaign and in 2009 became the Spokesperson for Invisalign Teen, launching it on the Tyra Bank’s show for the company.

Not all Invisalign® treatments have the same results. Always consider Dr. Jacquie Smiles for a second opinion.

Your Invisalign orthodontics treatment will consist of a series of nearly invisible, removable aligners that you change every couple of weeks for the next set of aligners. Each aligner is individually manufactured for your teeth, and your teeth only. As your best rated Invisalign practitioner replaces each aligner, your teeth will shift gradually until they have straightened to the final beautiful position.

What is Invisalign ®? 

Invisalign® is the latest technology to straight misaligned teeth in an almost invisible way, without wires or metal braces, with no self-consciousness, no speech impediments, far greater comfort, and it is available from a young age.

What kind of problems can Invisalign ® fix? 

The common problems clear aligners can fix include:

  • Crowded teeth,
  • Widely spaced teeth,
  • Overbite or overjet,
  • Underbite,
  • Crossbite,
  • Deep bite,
  • Open bite, and
  • Midline shift.

How do clear aligners work? 

The Invisalign® clear aligner system works on the same principles of teeth straightening with metal braces. However, they are very comfortable because they are made of smooth, clear plastic. They have a clear design, and each aligner is generated following a computer progression. Your Invisalign® teeth straightening will progress as follow:

  • First, we take your bite impressions,
  • Then, these impressions are laser scanned to generate 3D images in a computer,
  • Finally, a series of clear “aligners” are created, each progressively moving your teeth towards the desired position.

Is Dr. Jacquie also an Invisalign Teen Doctor? 

Yes, there is a specific product called Invisalign® Teen, which combines all the advantages of the proven Invisalign® system with unique features designed to fit teen’s lifestyle. As the top Invisalign Teen doctor in NYC, Dr. Jacquie can determine if Invisalign Teen is the best option for your teen after a brief consultation.

Invisalign Teen East Side, Manhattan

Invisalign Teen East Side, Manhattan

Invisalign Teen is the best choice for teens in East Side, Manhattan

Orthodontic treatment with Invisalign Teen is the perfect option for busy teenagers in East Side, Manhattan, NYC. Dr. Fulop-Goodling and the team at Dr. Jacquie Smiles are here to tell you why Invisalign Teen is the best possible option for teens.

No one will know

One of the most appealing aspects of Invisalign to teens is that the aligners are made of a smooth, clear plastic that is virtually invisible. Your teen’s friends won’t even know they are undergoing orthodontic treatment with Invisalign Teen, so there is no reason to feel self-conscious. Your child will have the self-confidence to smile not only after their treatment, but during it, as well.

Let them eat popcorn!

Your child probably has plenty of friends who are unable to eat popular foods for teenagers like gum, popcorn, tortilla chips, etc. You shouldn’t have to limit what your growing child can eat, which is why Invisalign Teen is perfect for teens who need orthodontic treatment. The clear aligner trays are completely removable for eating (and maintaining oral hygiene), so your teen won’t have to worry about breaking a bracket on their favorite foods.

Don’t stop being a teen

Some of the best parts of being a teenager is immersing in activities they love like sports and music. But it’s hard to enjoy them if they are worried about cutting their lips on a bracket when they dive for a ball or try to hit a note on the clarinet. Invisalign Teen is designed to allow teenagers to continue to be teenagers – they can eat what they want, play what they want, and smile when they want.

If you want to provide your child with cutting-edge orthodontic technology that will straighten their teeth without cramping their style, then Invisalign Teen from Dr. Jacquie Smiles in East Side, Manhattan, NYC is what you’re looking for. Contact Dr. Jacquie Smiles today at: 646-781-8153

Invisalign for Adults Upper East Side, Manhattan

Invisalign for Adults Upper East Side, Manhattan

Invisalign for Adults in Upper East Side, Manhattan

Did you know that the idea for Invisalign came not from an orthodontist, but from an adult patient? He had undergone treatment with braces and was wearing his retainer, and he realized that there must be another way. The team at Dr. Jacquie Smiles in Upper East Side, Manhattan can provide the alternative you’re looking for with Invisalign for adults.

Many adults and teens who want to perfect their smiles find Invisalign to be an attractive form of orthodontic treatment. The comfort of the smooth, plastic material paired with the convenience of the invisible, removable function is what makes the Invisalign system one of the most popular strategies of orthodontic treatment today.

How Does Invisalign Work?

The Invisalign for adults aligners are made from clear plastic that has been shaped specifically to fit your teeth, working for your unique orthodontic needs. This individual molding process is performed with computerized 3D modeling. The program calculates what your desired alignment would look like, and then formulates exactly how many individual steps it will take to grant you your prefect smile. Your unique aligners are created based on this process, and they’re given directly to you.

Each clear aligner brings you one step closer to your perfect smile. You wear your trays for at least 22 hours per day, and your teeth will shift gradually into the position of those aligners. Approximately every two weeks, you will get a new set of aligners that will continue to guide your teeth. With each new aligner tray, your teeth will move closer and closer to your desired alignment until you’ve achieved that perfect smile.

Why Choose Invisalign for Adults?

The most compelling benefit of Invisalign for adults is the reason for which it was created: appearance. Invisalign treatment is very discreet; many patients remark that people don’t notice they are undergoing orthodontic treatment at all. This is especially appealing for adults, who may have professional or personal reasons they would want to avoid treatment that affects their appearance. Teens love this perk, too, because nothing should stop them from this important stage in their lives. With Invisalign Teen they can feel confident not only after, but during treatment, as well.

The fact that aligners are removable presents an additional advantage for oral hygiene. Maintaining good oral hygiene habits becomes infinitely easier when you can brush and floss normally by removing your aligner trays. This means you can also eat whatever foods you like – just take out your aligners when eating, and your meals won’t affect your treatment.

Is Invisalign Right for You?

While Invisalign for adults gives a bit more freedom than traditional metal braces, it also means that more of the responsibility and determination to complete your treatment rests on you. With Invisalign, your aligners must be worn at least 22 hours per day to achieve your desired results. If you feel that you would have trouble doing this, don’t worry.  Dr. Jacquie offers other semi-permanent braces options, which might be a better choice for you.

The Best Invisalign For Teens Provider in NYC

Best Invisalign for Teens provider

Dr. Jacquie and the team at Dr. Jacquie Smiles are experts in treating their patients in NYC, especially teens, with Invisalign clear aligners. Invisalign aligners are clear, removable, thermoplastic trays that a exert a gentle pressure to shift teeth to their optimal positions within the mouth. Dr. Jacquie Smiles offers the best Invisalign for teens provider in NYC.

Why Invisalign Teen for orthodontic treatment

Easy to Remove

Treatment with Invisalign Teen involves wearing a series of removable aligner trays that patients change out themselves every two weeks. The Invisalign aligners can be taken out to eat, brush, floss, and clean. You simply brush the aligner after you brush your teeth.

Shorter treatment times

If worn correctly, the course of treatment with Invisalign in NYC may be less than treatment with traditional braces. A course of treatment with the clear aligners may last a year and a half, while treatment with traditional braces can take longer.

Less discomfort

If the wires of traditional braces break, they can cause irritation to the soft tissues of the mouth. There is often less discomfort associated with Invisalign than with traditional braces because there are no metal bands or brackets to cause irritation.

Less maintenance

Because Invisalign is removed to clean the tray and the teeth, the care and maintenance of the aligners require less attention than traditional braces. Teeth and trays are cleaned simultaneously.

Dr. Jacquie knows that treatment for teens with Invisalign teaches the wearer responsibility and accountability. The care involved in successful treatment with Invisalign is not difficult, but it requires conscientious and consistent attention.

Braces For Adults NYC

braces for adults

Today, adults wearing braces make up about half of all orthodontic patients in the United States. It is never too late for an adult to attain a healthier mouth, straighter teeth, and a perfect smile. The team at Dr. Jacquie Smiles are experts in braces for adults in NYC.

Why adult braces in NYC?

Misaligned or crooked teeth (malocclusions) affect our appearance and our self-esteem. In addition, poor dental and oral health care can be a contributing cause to a number of adult-related health care concerns in NYC.

Improperly aligned teeth can cause problems chewing food, which may lead to gastrointestinal complications. Misaligned teeth and crossbites can trap food and increase the likelihood of plaque buildup. These conditions increase the chances of an adult patient developing gum disease and other more serious health-related complications (tooth decay, toothaches, earaches, and headaches).

Dr. Jacquie Smiles understands the reasons why an adult in NYC may need to wear braces. They help each patient attain their treatment-outcome goals with sensitivity and compassion.


Dr. Jacquie and the team at Dr. Jacquie Smiles provide braces for adults in NYC.

Tooth Reshaping and Dental Contouring in NYC

Tooth-contouring-NYC

Tooth reshaping, also called dental contouring, is a cosmetic dentistry technique that removes small amounts of tooth enamel in order to change the shape, length, or surface of one or more teeth. Dr. Jacquie Smiles specializes in teeth contouring for her patients in NYC. Defects in teeth can attract unwanted attention and can make people feel insecure and avoid smiling. If you find yourself staring at these subtle yet distracting features in your own smile, help is available with a minimally invasive procedure known as tooth contouring (tooth reshaping).

Fix problems with your smile using tooth contouring:

  • Small chips
  • Uneven tooth length
  • Slight overlaps
  • Flattened or pointy tooth edges
  • Correct minor bite problems

To schedule your tooth contouring consultation with Dr. Jacquie Smiles in NYC, please call
646-781-8153 or fill out the contact form to receive additional information.

How it works 

Tooth reshaping is performed using dental instruments and abrasion techniques. Dental X-rays may be taken before the reshaping and contouring begin to ensure that your teeth are healthy. A sanding instrument is used to eliminate or minimize imperfections on the surface of the teeth.

Benefits of teeth contouring

Some of the benefits of tooth countering for NYC patients include:

  • This is an inexpensive way to improve the look of your teeth. The procedure generally costs $100 to $300 per tooth, depending on how much work is needed.
  • Because only surface enamel is removed in tooth reshaping and dental contouring, there’s generally no discomfort during the procedure and no anesthesia is required.
  • Improves health of teeth. Removing minor overlaps and other imperfections where tartar and plaque can build up lowers your risk of decay and gum disease. 
  • Substitute for braces. In some situations, tooth reshaping and dental contouring may be a possible substitute for braces since they make teeth look a little straighter and eliminate minor overlapping.

Tooth contouring can be combined with whitening for a dramatically younger-looking smile. It’s also often used in conjunction with cosmetic bonding or dental veneers — both of which can be used to reshape teeth with larger imperfections.

Ideal Candidates for Tooth Contouring

The best candidates for tooth contouring are people in NYC who have teeth that are misshapen or poorly aligned, affecting the overall aesthetics of the smile. They should be in otherwise good dental health and have teeth that are strong and healthy.

Frequently Asked Questions about Invisalign Teen

Below are some of the frequently asked questions our patients from Monroe ask our office staff about Invisalign Teen. Please read below questions and answers to help you understand more about Invisalign and how it can help improve your smile.

What are some of the benefits of Invisalign Teen?

Invisalign braces are practically clear and are removable. No one may even notice that you’re wearing these virtually invisible “braces,” making Invisalign Teen a seamless fit for your kids and day-to-day interactions with others. Unlike the traditional braces, you have the flexibility to eat and drink what you want during treatment by simply removing the aligners. And you can also remove the aligners to brush and floss as you normally would for fresh breath and good oral hygiene. Another benefit is your teens will likely spend less time in the dentist chair.

What are aligners made of, and what do they look like?

Invisalign aligners are made of a thermoplastic material uniquely developed to straighten your teeth and look similar to tooth-whitening trays. Invisalign aligners are custom-made for you and only you to move your teeth in the sequence determined by your doctor.

Has the FDA cleared Invisalign?

Invisalign are FDA cleared and are a safe way to help strengthen and correct teeth for your teens.

Teeth Contouring in Monroe, NY

teeth-contouring-Monroe-NY

Teeth contouring is a cosmetic dentistry technique that removes small amounts of tooth enamel in order to change the shape, length, or surface of one or more teeth. Dr. Jacquie Smiles specializes in teeth contouring for her patients in Monroe, NY. Defects in teeth can attract unwanted attention and can make people feel insecure and avoid smiling. If you find yourself staring at these subtle yet distracting features in your own smile, help is available with a minimally invasive procedure known as tooth contouring, also known as tooth reshaping.

Fix problems with your smile using teeth contouring:

  • Small chips
  • Uneven tooth length
  • Slight overlaps
  • Flattened or pointy tooth edges
  • Correct minor bite problems

To schedule your teeth countering (reshaping) consultation with Dr. Jacquie Smiles in Monroe, NY, please call

How teeth contouring works 

Teeth contouring is performed using dental instruments and abrasion techniques. Dental X-rays may be taken before the reshaping and contouring begin to ensure that your teeth are healthy. A sanding instrument is used to eliminate or minimize imperfections on the surface of the teeth.

Benefits of teeth contouring

Some of the benefits of tooth countering for Monroe patients include:

  • This is an inexpensive way to improve the look of your teeth. The procedure generally costs $100 to $300 per tooth, depending on how much work is needed.
  • Because only surface enamel is removed in tooth reshaping and dental contouring, there’s generally no discomfort during the procedure and no anesthesia is required.
  • Improves health of teeth. Removing minor overlaps and other imperfections where tartar and plaque can build up lowers your risk of decay and gum disease. 
  • Substitute for braces. In some situations, tooth reshaping and dental contouring may be a possible substitute for braces since they make teeth look a little straighter and eliminate minor overlapping.

Tooth contouring can be combined with whitening for a dramatically younger-looking smile. It’s also often used in conjunction with cosmetic bonding or dental veneers — both of which can be used to reshape teeth with larger imperfections.

Ideal Candidates for Tooth Contouring

The best candidates for tooth contouring are people in Monroe who have teeth that are misshapen or poorly aligned, affecting the overall aesthetics of the smile. They should be in otherwise good dental health and have teeth that are strong and healthy.

New York City’s Guide to Orthodontics

orthodontics-guide-NYC

Your primary dentist may recommend at some time during your lifetime that you visit an orthodontist. This can make some patients nervous, but there is no need to be. Orthodontists are specialists that diagnose, treat and prevent dental irregularities. Orthodontists provide services such as braces, teeth whitening and cosmetic dentistry. Braces is specifically a common reason to visit the orthodontist office, since many people require assistance to align their teeth. Now that you have been recommended or have chosen to visit an orthodontist, these helpful tips will allow you to find the one that is best suited to your needs.

  • Select an Orthodontist – To find a reputable orthodontist in New York City, first seek recommendations from family and friends. Also make a list of the Orthodontist offices in your area that are potential candidates. Remember you most-likely be visiting the office every six weeks, so try to find an office that is conveniently located either close to your home or office. Call or visit each office to assure that they are licensed in the state of New York and they board certified. Next, visit each office for a consultation. Discuss your options, the procedures that are best for you and observe the cleanliness of the office and disposition of the staff and orthodontist. Choose the one office that meets all of your needs and makes you feel the most comfortable. Avoid choosing an orthodontist that has a messy, dirty office, rude staff, lack of credentials and seems like they are in a rush to get to the next patient.
  • Braces – Orthodontics focus mainly on aligning teeth by using braces. Plastic, ceramic or metal brackets, braces and wires are often used to achieve straight teeth.

Frequently Asked Questions about Invisalign for NYC Patients

faq-Invisalign-NYC

The Invisalign system is the virtually invisible way to straighten your teeth and achieve the dazzling smile you’ve always wanted. Using advanced 3-D computer-imaging technology, Invisalign depicts your complete treatment plan, from the initial position of your teeth to the final desired position. Then a series of clear aligners are custom-made for your teeth – and your teeth only – to move them little by little. Each aligner is worn for about two weeks before being replaced by the next in the series, until the final position of your teeth is achieved. Your Invisalign treatment time will be determined by your doctor, based on your specific needs. Below are some of the frequently asked questions about Invisalign for NYC patients.

Frequently Asked Questions About Invisalign

What are the primary benefits of Invisalign?

Invisalign aligners are practically clear. No one may even notice that you’re wearing these virtually invisible “braces,” making Invisalign a seamless fit with your lifestyle and day-to-day interactions with others. You will not be self-conscience that your peers will be distracted.

Invisalign is removable. Unlike braces, you have the flexibility to eat and drink what you want during treatment by simply removing the aligners. You can also remove the aligners to brush and floss as you normally would for fresh breath and overall good oral hygiene.

Unlike braces, there are no metal brackets or wires with the Invisalign system that could cause irritation to your mouth. Plus, since your office visits during treatment don’t involve metal or wire adjustments, you’ll likely spend less time in the doctor’s chair.

Finally, Invisalign allows you to view your virtual results and treatment plan before you start so you can see how your straight teeth will look when your treatment is complete.

Like brackets and arch wires are to braces, Invisalign aligners move teeth through the appropriate placement of controlled force on your teeth. The main difference is that Invisalign not only controls forces, but also the timing of the force application. During each stage, only certain teeth are allowed to move. These movements are determined by your doctor as he or she maps out your unique Invisalign treatment plan.

What are aligners made of, and what do they look like?

The invisible aligners, which are made of a thermoplastic material uniquely developed for the Invisalign treatment plan, look similar to tooth-whitening trays. Invisalign aligners are custom-made for you and only you to move your teeth in the sequence determined by your doctor.

How old is the company?

Align Technology, Inc., the company that manufactures Invisalign, was founded in 1997.

How old is the technology?

In 1945, Dr. H.D. Kesling envisioned that one day modern technology would enable the use of a series of tooth positioners to produce the kinds of movements required for comprehensive orthodontic treatment. Technology has made this vision a reality. Using advanced computer technology, Align Technology produces Invisalign, a series of customized clear appliances, or aligners. Each aligner is worn sequentially by the patient to produce extensive tooth movements in both upper and lower arches.

How many patients are being treated with Invisalign?

More than 500,000 patients worldwide have been treated with Invisalign. The number of Invisalign smiles and happy smiles grow daily.

Has the FDA cleared Invisalign?

Invisalign aligners are classified as Class II medical devices by the FDA, and Align Technology, Inc.has held the necessary 510K clearance from the FDA since 1998 to be able to sell and market the Invisalign system.

Do Invisalign aligners contain Bisphenol-A (BPA)?

No. Invisalign aligners and Vivera Retainers do not contain Bisphenol-A or phthalate plasticizers. These aligners and retainers are made with USP Class VI medical grade, high molecular weight, polyurethane resins. Tests have been conducted to determine the biocompatibility of these materials, and show that they are biocompatible and pass all applicable regulatory requirements and thresholds for human wear in the mouth. Of course, as with any medical device, you should consult with your health professional about your aligner or retainer treatment and any applicable risks of use.

How long will treatment take?

The length of treatment it determined by the doctor and depends on the severity of each individual case. However average cases takes about 12 months.

Will Invisalign treatment be painful?

There is a feeling of pressure and discomfort when first starting your Invisalign treatment. Patients may also experience pressure and discomfort at the beginning of each new stage throughout the treatment process. This discomfort and pressure is due to your teeth moving into place and is considered a good sign that your treatment is working. The pressure and discomfort lessens after a few days.

Are there food restrictions during the treatment process?

There are no food restrictions. You are required to remove your Invisalign aligners before eating every snack or meal. This allows our NYC patients the freedom to eat whatever they wish.

How often must the aligners be worn?

Aligners should be worn 20 to 22 hours per day. Preferably only removed when eating or brushing teeth.

Will the Invisalign aligners affect speech?

There is an initial adjustment period and it takes time to become familiar with having an object in your mouth. However, a vast majority of patients report no negative effects on speech.

How often is a visit to the orthodontist required during treatment?

Your orthodontist will request to see you every four to six weeks. This is necessary to keep track of the progress that is being made throughout the treatment process.

Will dental insurance cover the cost of Invisalign treatment?

Since dental plans vary, our New York City patients are encouraged to contact their dental insurance company to see if orthodontic treatment is covered under the plan.

Are payment options available for Invisalign treatment?

Most orthodontist offices offer their patients a flexible payment plan. These types of plans usually require a percentage of the cost and affordable monthly payments.

Is a retainer required after treatment is complete?

Yes. Your orthodontist will recommend that you wear a retainer to prevent teeth from shifting back to their original position. The frequency and duration depends on each individual case.

How do patients get started with Invisalign?

Those interested in beginning their Invisalign treatment should visit their NYC orthodontist for a consultation. The orthodontist will guide the patient through the process of Invisalign treatment and if it is best suited for their specific needs.

Invisalign Care Guide

Invisalign-care-guide

Congratulations! You have embarked on your journey to a straighter, healthier smile by using the beneficial and convenient Invisalign treatment. Now that you are ready to use your Invisalign aligners, you may wonder what type of maintenance they may require during the use and process. Proper care is essential to ensure the Invisalign aligners are kept in optimal condition. There are easy Invisalign etiquette tips and general care procedures that will guide you on your path of caring properly for your aligners.

  • Use a Soft Bristle Toothbrush – You will want to use a toothbrush and cool water to gently clean your aligners before inserting them. Your goal is to remove saliva or tiny particles that may build up in your aligners. Avoid using toothpaste of any kind since the harsh substances in the ingredients can become abrasive and cause damage to the aligners.
  • Soak Your Aligners – You will want to soak your aligners on a daily basis, preferably during meal time, by using the Invisalign Cleaning System crystals. Soaking your aligners on a daily basis rids bacteria and residue that can cause odor. Avoid soaking aligners in mouthwash or denture cleaner. These strong solutions can cause visible damage to the aligner. Speak to your orthodontist regarding Invisalign approved cleaning products such as foams, crystals, powders and tablets that will remove stains, kill bacteria and eliminate odors.
  • Prevent Discoloration – Invisalign aligners are clear and invisible. You want to keep your aligners as clear as possible so that they are not noticeable to others while you are using them. Specific drinks such as coffee, tea, red wine, dark colored sodas and purple grape juice are all capable of staining your aligners and causing them to become permanently discolored. It is recommended to remove your aligners when consuming these types of drinks. As a rule, you will want adhere to drinking water only while wearing your aligners. You should remove your aligners when consuming any other types of drinks.
  • Avoid Hot Water – Invisalign aligners are created out of plastic by using state-of-the-art equipment. Since the aligners are plastic, you will want to avoid exposing them to hot water or substances such as hot coffee or tea. The hot water can cause the plastic to warp, distort or melt parts of the aligners, causing them not to fit properly. If any type of damage arises you will be required to get a replacement. The replacement aligner can become costly and slow down the progress of your treatment.
  • Store Aligners Properly – Your Invisalign starter kit includes two plastic aligner cases. These easy to carry cases should be used to store your aligners when they are not in use. The cases protect your aligners from becoming damaged and also prevent them from accidentally being thrown away, which frequently happens when patients store aligners in tissues or napkins while eating.
  • Avoid Eating with Your Aligners Inserted – One of the main rules for using Invisalign is to always remove your aligners before eating. Chewing food while wearing your aligners will cause damage to the plastic causing it to become ill fitted, food particles to get trapped between your teeth and the aligner which can lead to tooth decay, plaque and odor, plus discoloration due to eating a variety of colorful foods and spices.
  • Avoid Bending or Twisting Your Aligners – During the insertion and removal process you will want to avoid bending or twisting the aligner. When inserting the aligners you will want to begin at your front teeth and carefully place the remaining part of the aligner tray onto the remaining teeth. Avoid chomping or biting them into place. This can cause permanent damage to the aligners. During the removal process you will want to begin removing the aligners from your back teeth and gently lift the remaining part of the tray by working around to the front teeth.

Properly caring for your Invisalign aligners will ensure that they are in top condition and providing you with the maximum results. Your goal is to follow your Invisalign program exactly the way your orthodontist has recommended. This requires patients to usually replace their aligner with the next stage about every two weeks. Use this helpful guide and tips for caring for your Invisalign aligners to stay on track in achieving your goal of a healthier, straighter smile.

Pediatric Orthodontics

We recommend the children of the age of seven to have an evaluation to determine if pediatric orthodontic treatment should be undertaken to prevent further damage or misalignment in the future. At this age, it is a good time to make early detection of following signs or habits:

  •    Early or late loss of baby teeth
  •    Overbite
  •    Teeth crowding
  •    Difficulty in chewing or biting
  •    Misplaced or blocked out teeth
  •    Jaws that shift or make sounds
  •    Biting the cheek or roof of the mouth

Dr. Jacquie Smiles can fix the above issues and help your child’s smile develop into a healthy one. For our younger patients, our dental group offers a number of orthodontics treatments help straighten the teeth and correct bite issues. We also provide preventive dental care including cleanings, radiographs, and sealants, as well as more extensive preventive dental care when required, in our offices in Woodbury, Long Island, NY.

Start your child early

As your child grows, we encourage regular check-ups (once every 6 months). This not only helps us watch the development of your child’s teeth, but it helps your child grow accustomed to visiting our office and they become more receptive to treatment.

Regular check ups

Check-ups allow us to spot early signs of cavities, and to monitor the eruption of teeth. We can treat minor problems before they turn into major ones.  Not only does it give us the chance to clean your child’s teeth, but we are able to teach them proper brushing and flossing habits (including technique) so they can take their oral health into their own hands.

Child’s First Orthodontic Appointment

first-orthodontics-appointment-NYCDuring your child’s first orthodontic appointment, we will help you get acquainted with our office, staff and help you answer any questions you may have about first orthodontic treatments.

Great oral health starts early. From the time an infant’s first tooth breaks through, to teaching your child proper oral hygiene, parents set the tone of their dental journey!

The American Dental Association recommends that a child visit the family dentist upon the mark of their first birthday while “baby teeth” are still emerging.

Initiating interaction between the dentist and your child this early can be extremely beneficial since teeth and jaw development can be assessed properly and a professional may be able to alert you of any changes that might occur as your child grows. This will not just lay the foundation for a lifetime of superior dental habits, but it will also get your child acclimated and comfortable at the dentist office.

Early Treatment: Age 7

All children should get an orthodontic check-up no later than age 7. At this point, each child will have a healthy mix of baby teeth and adult teeth for an orthodontist to examine their gums, jaw and tooth alignment, and begin the process for correction. While your child’s teeth may appear to be straight, there could be a problem that only an orthodontist can detect. Of course, the check-up may reveal that your child’s bite is fine, and that can be comforting news. Either way, early detection is key for a beautiful smile with a healthy bite.

Depending on the case, the orthodontist may or may not recommend immediate treatment. Each individual who needs treatment is subject for an ideal time to begin that treatment in order to achieve optimal benefits and results. However the earlier the treatment provides an increased likelihood to prevent more serious problems from developing, and may make treatment at a later age shorter and less complicated.

Early treatment gives your orthodontist the chance to:

  • Guide jaw growth
  • Lower the risk of trauma to protruded front teeth
  • Correct harmful oral habits
  • Improve appearance and self-esteem
  • Guide permanent teeth into a more favorable position
  • Improve the way lips meet

Early Detection Signs: The Bite is Not Right

Indications the child may need orthodontic attention prior to age 7:

  • Early or late loss of baby teeth
  • Difficulty in chewing or biting
  • Breathing through the mouth
  • Thumb-sucking
  • Crowded, misplaced or blocked-out teeth
  • Jaws that are too far forward or back
  • Biting the cheek or biting into the roof of the mouth
  • Protruding teeth
  • Upper and lower teeth that don’t meet, or meet in an abnormal way
  • An unbalanced facial appearance
  • Grinding or clenching of the teeth

Cost: Affordable Investment for A Lifetime Of Benefits

In addition to improving oral health, orthodontic treatment can provide the confidence that comes with a healthy, attractive smile for years to come. You may be pleasantly surprised to find out how affordable such an investment can be. Most orthodontists will work with you to arrive at a payment plan that fits within your budget. In addition, many dental insurance plans now include orthodontic benefits.

Adult Orthodontics: It’s Never Too Late

Often times, a parent of a child who is being treated will inquire about correcting his/her smile. Orthodontics can be affective at any age. There is no cut-off to improving your smile, overall appearance, and confidence.

With today’s smaller, less visible, more comfortable options, plus the affordable payment plans that many orthodontists offer, adult patients are finding braces/alligners to be more appealing than ever.

Choosing Your First Orthodontist

It is important to choose your first orthodontist who has completed the following requirements:

  • Complete standard college requirements before starting a three- to five-year graduate program at a dental school accredited by the American Dental Association (ADA)
  • At least two or three academic years of advanced specialty education in an ADA-accredited orthodontic program (A program which typically includes advanced education in biomedical, behavioral and basic sciences. The orthodontic student learns the complex skills required to manage tooth movement (orthodontics) and guide facial development)

Only dentists who have successfully completed these advanced specialty education programs may call themselves orthodontists. An orthodontist is a specialist in the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of dental and facial irregularities. All orthodontists are dentists, but only about six percent of dentists are orthodontists. Admission to orthodontic programs is extremely competitive and selective.

A Team Effort

Achieving healthy, beautiful smiles is a team effort that involves the orthodontist, the family dentist, the patient (and the parents, if the patient is young) and, as needed, other dental specialists. The orthodontist provides the expertise, the treatment plan and the techniques to straighten teeth and align the jaws. The family dentist helps make sure that teeth and gums stay clean and healthy. The patient must cooperate by following the dentist’s and the orthodontist’s instructions carefully so that the teeth and jaws move in the way desired and on the prescribed schedule.

Because dental hygiene is so important, regular visits to the family dentist must continue every six months during orthodontic treatment (or more often, if recommended). It is essential that the patient avoid foods which may damage orthodontic appliances. The patient must also maintain a healthy, nutritional diet to achieve the best possible results from treatment. A good diet provides essential nutrients to bones and tissues undergoing change during orthodontic treatment.

Call Now: 516-418-3662

Invisalign consists of a series of clear plastic aligner trays that fit closely over your teeth. The aligners are custom-made to gradually move your teeth into the correct positions. Each set of aligners is worn for two weeks, and they need to be left in the mouth for approximately 22 hours each day. Every two weeks they are exchanged for a brand-new set. Your Invisalign dentist in Long Island will supply you with several sets of aligners at a time, although you will need regular checkups during treatment. Most people will need to use these aligners for 12 to 18 months, but the exact length of time required does depend on the orthodontic issues needing correction.

 Watch the video below as Dr. Jacquie Smiles explains how Invisalign works.

Metal Braces Versus Invisalign

Unlike metal braces, Invisalign uses removable, clear plastic trays to straighten teeth. These trays, called aligners, are custom made for each patient out of clear medical-grade plastic. Throughout the straightening process, each patient will wear a specific aligner for two weeks and then progressively move on to the next aligner. Each aligner gently moves the teeth closer and closer to the end result.

Benefits of Invisalign Clear Braces

Lots of people struggle to keep their teeth and gums clean and healthy while wearing conventional fixed braces. This is not an issue with Invisalign as the aligners are removed whenever you eat or drink something, and can be taken out for brushing and flossing. It is extremely easy to maintain good dental health right throughout treatment. In addition, there are no diet restrictions as the aligners are always removed before eating. Treatment is extremely comfortable as Invisalign doesn’t contain any brackets or wires that may dig into the cheeks or gums.

Invisalign is able to correct most common orthodontic problems including:

  • Overcrowded teeth
  • Overlapping teeth
  • Spaces in between teeth
  • Common bite problems including overbites, underbites, crossbites and open bites
  • Misaligned teeth

How Orthodontic Treatment Works

Orthodontic appliances can be made of metal, ceramic or plastic. They may be removable or they may be brackets bonded to the teeth. By placing a constant, gentle force in a carefully controlled direction, braces slowly shift teeth to a corrected position. This is a great time to wear braces! Gone are the days when a metal band with a bracket was placed around each tooth. You can choose brackets that are clear or metallic colors for a bit of fun. You can choose the color of the ties that hold the wire in brackets. Wires are also less noticeable than they used to be and the latest materials move teeth faster with less discomfort to patients.

What Dental Issues Can Invisalign Be Used To Treat?

It’s a common misconception that since Invisalign is non-invasive and practically invisible, it can only treat mild orthodontics cases. On the contrary, Invisalign can treat most oral health alignment issues, from crooked teeth to overbites. Since Invisalign trays are made to fit your teeth specifically, they can be especially ideal if you only have a few misaligned teeth. Read our Invisalign FAQ to see answers to some of our frequently asked questions.

Invisalign can be used to treat the following dental issues:

Gapped Teeth:
During the development of your teeth gaps can form for several reasons. Prominent gaps leave portions of your gums unprotected, placing you at a greater risk for periodontal pockets and gum disease.

Crossbite:
When your upper and lower jaw does not align, you have what is called a crossbite. This causes your upper teeth to clamp down on your lower inside teeth in at least one location. If left untreated, over time a crossbite can cause excessive tooth wear, bone loss and lead to gum disease.

Crowded Teeth:
If your jaw is not large enough to accommodate all of your teeth, crowding will begin to occur. This causes your teeth to grow in crooked as they push up against one another, fighting for the limited space in your mouth. The longer teeth are allowed to crowd your mouth, the more crooked they will become. When teeth are pushed together like this bacteria has more places to hide, increasing your risk for plaque build up and other dental issues.

Underbite:
Your lower jaw extending out past your upper jaw, causing your front teeth to sit in front of your upper teeth, characterizes an underbite. This can place excessive pressure on your jaw, creating discomfort, excessive tooth wear, and even TMJ disorder.

Overbite:
When you close your mouth, if your upper teeth extends past your lower teeth you have an overbite. This can be solely a cosmetic issues but in some cases it can lead to gum issues, jaw problems and unnecessary wear on your lower teeth.

Open Bite:
When your mouth is closed and your top teeth don’t reach to meet with your bottom teeth you have an open bite. Too much thumb sucking as a child or a genetic abnormality in your jaw structure can cause open bite. If not addressed this can lead to discomfort, TMJ disorder, speech problems, and difficulty chewing.

6 Ways Invisalign Makes Your Life Easier

Traditional braces are much different than Invisalign. Metal braces require you to avoid eating certain foods that can damage your braces. You must also be careful brushing and flossing around the bands and brackets associated with traditional braces and cleaning your teeth becomes more difficult to maintain optimal and overall dental health and hygiene. All of these rules are tossed out the window with your Invisalign treatment, which is surprisingly low maintenance. Here are 6 reasons you will hardly notice you are wearing Invisalign, all the while earning a more gorgeous grin.

  1. You Can Eat What You Want With Invisalign

One the greatest things about Invisalign is that the trays are easy to take in and out of your mouth, meaning you can remove them before eating a meal. This allows you to enjoy all your favorite foods as you usually would, without having to worry about getting food caught in a bracket or breaking a wire. Just be sure to clean your teeth and Invisalign before inserting your trays back over your teeth.

  1. Spend Less Time Brushing Your Teeth With Invisalign

Cleaning your teeth with traditional braces can take an excessive amount of time if properly maintaining standard oral health. When done improperly you risk yellow or white spots forming on your teeth beneath your braces. Since Invisalign is removed while you brush and floss your teeth, you can clean as you normally would without the risk of missing certain spots.

  1. Invisalign Is Safe for Sports

Traditional braces have metal hardware that can stab into your gums and cause injury in sports and other physical activities. Since Invisalign sits flush with your teeth and includes no hardware, it is 100% safe to run, play, and even fall!

  1. Invisalign Equals Picture Perfect

It can take a couple years to completely straighten your teeth. During this time you are sure to attend an important event that includes lots of photography and documenting special memories. If you are wearing your Invisalign, no one will ever notice, allowing you to smile wide for the camera no matter the occasion.

  1. Invisalign Is Comfortable

Traditional braces can rub up against your cheeks, causing discomfort and canker sores. Since Invisalign clings tight to your teeth without any protruding hardware you will experience less discomfort. The German Department of Orthodontics recently conducted a study to see how happy patients were while wearing Invisalign. Turns out, 93% of study participants considered Invisalign so comfortable they didn’t experience any impairments at all. Even though Invisalign is more comfortable, it still gets the job done; 89% of the same study participants were pleased with the speed of their progress.

  1. Reduced Orthodontist Visits With Invisalign Braces

Since Invisalign trays are switched out in the privacy of your home, you don’t have to visit your orthodontist for frequent adjustments, as with metal braces. Typically patients only need to visit their orthodontist about once every 6 weeks while wearing Invisalign.

Finally, Invisalign allows you to view your virtual results and treatment plan before you start so you can see how your straight teeth will look when your treatment is complete.

What are aligners made of, and what do they look like?

The invisible aligners, which are made of a thermoplastic material uniquely developed for the Invisalign treatment plan, look similar to tooth-whitening trays. Invisalign aligners are custom-made for you and only you to move your teeth in the sequence determined by your doctor.

How many patients are being treated with Invisalign?

More than 500,000 patients worldwide have been treated with Invisalign. The number of Invisalign smiles and happy smiles grow daily. Dr. Jacquie Smiles has successfully treated many patients located near 10016 with Invisalign to help them straighten their teeth and improve smiles.

Invisalign aligners are classified as Class II medical devices by the FDA, and Align Technology, Inc.has held the necessary 510K clearance from the FDA since 1998 to be able to sell and market the Invisalign system.

Do Invisalign aligners contain Bisphenol-A (BPA)?

No. Invisalign aligners and Vivera Retainers do not contain Bisphenol-A or phthalate plasticizers. These aligners and retainers are made with USP Class VI medical grade, high molecular weight, polyurethane resins. Tests have been conducted to determine the biocompatibility of these materials, and show that they are biocompatible and pass all applicable regulatory requirements and thresholds for human wear in the mouth. Of course, as with any medical device, you should consult with your health professional about your aligner or retainer treatment and any applicable risks of use.

How long will treatment take?

The length of treatment it determined by the doctor and depends on the severity of each individual case. However average cases takes about 12 months.

Will Invisalign treatment be painful?

There is a feeling of pressure and discomfort when first starting your Invisalign treatment. Patients may also experience pressure and discomfort at the beginning of each new stage throughout the treatment process. This discomfort and pressure is due to your teeth moving into place and is considered a good sign that your treatment is working. The pressure and discomfort lessens after a few days.

Are there food restrictions during the treatment process?

There are no food restrictions. You are required to remove your Invisalign aligners before eating every snack or meal. This allows our NYC patients the freedom to eat whatever they wish.

How often must the aligners be worn?

Aligners should be worn 20 to 22 hours per day. Preferably only removed when eating or brushing teeth.

Will the Invisalign aligners affect speech?

There is an initial adjustment period and it takes time to become familiar with having an object in your mouth. However, a vast majority of patients report no negative effects on speech.

How often is a visit to the orthodontist required during treatment?

Your orthodontist will request to see you every four to six weeks. This is necessary to keep track of the progress that is being made throughout the treatment process.

Will dental insurance cover the cost of Invisalign treatment?

Since dental plans vary, our New York City patients are encouraged to contact their dental insurance company to see if orthodontic treatment is covered under the plan.

Are payment options available for Invisalign treatment?

Most orthodontist offices offer their patients a flexible payment plan. These types of plans usually require a percentage of the cost and affordable monthly payments.

Is a retainer required after treatment is complete?

Yes. Your orthodontist will recommend that you wear a retainer to prevent teeth from shifting back to their original position. The frequency and duration depends on each individual case.

How do patients get started with Invisalign?

Those interested in beginning their Invisalign treatment should visit their NYC orthodontist for a consultation. The orthodontist will guide the patient through the process of Invisalign treatment and if it is best suited for their specific needs.

Invisalign clear braces in Monroe, NY

Invisalign® is a new alternative to traditional wire braces that is virtually undetectable to other people. Invisalign straightens your teeth, not with brackets or wires, but with a series of clear, customized, removable appliances called aligners. Many patients find Invisalign braces in Monroe, NY more convenient, as they are removable and not permanent fixtures. A complimentary consultation with Dr. Jacquie Smiles in her Monroe dental clinic can determine if Invisalign is right for you.

Call Now: 845-406-9361

Invisalign uses the latest 3-D computer technology to create your customized aligners. After you and your orthodontist determine what you’d like to correct, your orthodontist will develop precise treatment instructions. Invisalign uses advanced computer technology to translate those instructions into a sequence of finely calibrated aligners – as few as 12 or as many as 48.

You’ll wear each Invisalign aligner for about two weeks and only take it out for eating, brushing, and flossing. As you replace each aligner with the next, your teeth will move – gradually – week by week, until they move into the final alignment your orthodontist prescribed. Then, you’ll be smiling like you’ve never smiled before.

What are the primary benefits of Invisalign?

Invisalign braces are practically clear. No one may even notice that you’re wearing these virtually invisible “braces,” making Invisalign a seamless fit with your lifestyle and day-to-day interactions with others.

Invisalign clear braces are removable. Unlike the traditional braces, you have the flexibility to eat and drink what you want during treatment by simply removing the aligners. And you can also remove the aligners to brush and floss as you normally would for fresh breath and good oral hygiene.

Unlike braces, there are no metal brackets or wires with the Invisalign system that could cause irritation to your mouth. Plus since your office visits during treatment don’t involve metal or wire adjustments, you’ll likely spend less time in the doctor’s chair.

What are aligners made of, and what do they look like?

Invisalign aligners are made of a thermoplastic material uniquely developed to straighten your teeth and look similar to tooth-whitening trays. Invisalign aligners are custom-made for you and only you to move your teeth in the sequence determined by your doctor.

Has the FDA cleared Invisalign?

Invisalign are classified as Class II medical devices by the FDA, and Align Technology, Inc.has held the necessary 510K clearance from the FDA since 1998 to be able to sell and market the Invisalign system.

What Are the Benefits of Teeth Whitening?

 

tooth whitening before and after patients in NYCTooth whitening is an extremely popular cosmetic dentistry treatment. It is fast, affordable and very effective. Below are some of the main benefits of teeth whitening. Professional tooth whitening services offered in NYC by Dr. Jacquie Smiles can help knock years off your appearance as whiter teeth are associated with youth. There have been numerous studies conducted into the effects of having a whiter smile, and it’s been found people respond quite differently to people with nice white teeth.

The Implications of a Smile

A whiter smile is associated with good health and taking care of your appearance, and perhaps not surprisingly it can have quite an effect on your social and business life. Researchers have found people are more likely to enjoy career success if they have a nice smile, and they have a better chance of meeting that special someone. In a fast paced NYC environment, we often sum up anyone new within just a few seconds of meeting them, and smiling is an important part of communication. When you meet someone who is embarrassed about smiling then it’s easy to think they are cold, disinterested or perhaps even a bit stuck up or standoffish. Dr. Jacquie Smiles’ convenient locations in NYC makes it easier for our patients to visit our  clinic and setup teeth whitening appointments, check-ups and follow ups.

Why Is It Best to Have Professional Tooth Whitening in NYC?

Your dentist is the best person to safely whiten your teeth, as after all this is a dental treatment. When you book a tooth whitening treatment in Dr. Smiles in one of our locations in New York City, you’ll be given a dental exam to check your teeth and gums are healthy. This is extremely important, as any signs of cavities or gum disease will need to be treated prior to whitening to ensure treatment is safe and comfortable, with minimal side effects. Some of our popular procedures include Zoom! Teeth Whitening. Zoom is a bleaching process that lightens discoloration of enamel and dentin.

Treatment can also be fully customized to take into account any tooth sensitivity, and your dentist can advise you on the type of results you can realistically expect to achieve. It’s generally best to whiten your teeth to no whiter than the whites of your eyes as this will give a natural and healthy looking appearance. Quite a few people have veneers and crowns, and whitening will not affect these restorations. Your dentist can advise on the best way to deal with this issue, and will ensure all your teeth end up a nice even shade of white.

Making the Results Last Longer

The results of your professional tooth whitening in New York should last for quite a while, but your teeth will inevitably darken, sometimes as a result of lifestyle habits. Your teeth are more likely to darken more quickly if:

  • You enjoy a glass of red or white wine, or if you like to eat lots of highly colored foods
  • You smoke
  • You drink tea or coffee
  • You eat lots of acidic fruits and vegetables as acidic foods soften tooth enamel, increasing its susceptibility towards staining

Cutting back on these habits, or quitting altogether will help the results last longer, and your dentist can advise you on how often you can safely whiten. It is important not to whiten too often as you could damage your teeth. Keeping up with regular exams and dental cleanings will help to remove some surface stains so your gorgeous white smile stays brighter for longer.

Invisalign: Discreetly Straighten Your Teeth

Invisalign NYCYou might have noticed some friends and colleagues seem to mysteriously have straighter teeth.

Invisalign is extremely popular amongst adults and teens in NYC who wish to straighten their teeth without letting anyone know about it.

Around 20% of orthodontic patients are over the age of 18. Dr. Jacquie Smiles specializes in treating adults, children as well as teens in one of her dental clinics in New York City.

What Is Invisalign?
Invisalign consists of a series of clear plastic aligner trays that fit closely over your teeth. The aligners are custom-made to gradually move your teeth into the correct positions. Each set of aligners is worn for two weeks, and they need to be left in the mouth for approximately 22 hours each day. Every two weeks they are exchanged for a brand-new set. Your Invisalign dentist in NYC will supply you with several sets of aligners at a time, although you will need regular checkups during treatment. Most people will need to use these aligners for 12 to 18 months, but the exact length of time required does depend on the orthodontic issues needing correction.

What Can Invisalign Do?

Invisalign is able to correct most common orthodontic problems including:

  • Overcrowded teeth
  • Overlapping teeth
  • Spaces in between teeth
  • Common bite problems including overbites, underbites, crossbites and open bites
  • Misaligned teeth

It is extremely easy to maintain good dental health right throughout treatment. In addition, there are no diet restrictions as the aligners are always removed before eating. Treatment is extremely comfortable as Invisalign doesn’t contain any brackets or wires that may dig into the cheeks or gums.

All About Invisalign: The Invisible Way To Get Straighter Teeth

Invisalign is the most modern way to straighten your teeth, offering a practically invisible solution to a perfect smile. For years, metal braces with tight brackets and bands were the only treatment plan or technique used for all orthodontics patients, but thankfully there is now a simple, more convenient solution for many to eliminate the self conscious feelings that came along with correcting your smile. Invented by Zia Chishti, Invisalign became available in May of 2000. Since then, Invisalign has rapidly gained popularity, creating a flurry of questions surrounding this non-invasive teeth straightening option. Here we aim to answer your most pressing questions about Invisalign, including;  Is Invisalign right for you?

How Does Invisalign Work?

Invisalign is a completely personalized experience. It begins with your orthodontist taking 3-D images of your teeth to create a set of Invisalign trays custom fit to your mouth. No two patients are the same, the process and amount of time you wear Invisalign will differ depending on your specific needs.

Invisalign-care-guide

The straightening begins when your Invisalign aligner trays arrive. You may need anywhere from 11 to 45 different trays which you will change out about once every couple of weeks throughout the treatment plan. Made with clear BPA-free plastic, Invisalign trays are comfortable, safe, and virtually invisible in your mouth. Your orthodontist must regularly tighten metal braces, but with Invisalign you just switch out your trays when you are ready to progress for the next stage of adjustments in the comfort of your own home. The most discomfort will arise when you first put in your new trays because of the added pressure. This discomfort does not last long but is expected for every new set of aligners. Therefore, it is recommended that you change out your liners at night before bed, that way when you wake up in the morning much of the pressure is relieved. Since you should only remove your Invisalign to eat or clean your teeth, you should wear them at least 22 hours every day to avoid prolonged treatment.

6 Ways Invisalign Makes Your Life Easier

Traditional braces are much different than Invisalign. Metal braces require you to avoid eating certain foods that can damage your braces. You must also be careful brushing and flossing around the bands and brackets associated with traditional braces and cleaning your teeth becomes more difficult to maintain optimal and overall dental health and hygiene. All of these rules are tossed out the window with your Invisalign treatment, which is surprisingly low maintenance. Here are 6 reasons you will hardly notice you are wearing Invisalign, all the while earning a more gorgeous grin.

1. You Can Eat What You Want With Invisalign

One the greatest things about Invisalign is that the trays are easy to take in and out of your mouth, meaning you can remove them before eating a meal. This allows you to enjoy all your favorite foods as you usually would, without having to worry about getting food caught in a bracket or breaking a wire. Just be sure to clean your teeth and Invisalign before inserting your trays back over your teeth.

2. Spend Less Time Brushing Your Teeth With Invisalign

Cleaning your teeth with traditional braces can take an excessive amount of time if properly maintaining standard oral health. When done improperly you risk yellow or white spots forming on your teeth beneath your braces. Since Invisalign is removed while you brush and floss your teeth, you can clean as you normally would without the risk of missing certain spots.

3. Invisalign Is Safe for Sports

Traditional braces have metal hardware that can stab into your gums and cause injury in sports and other physical activities. Since Invisalign sits flush with your teeth and includes no hardware, it is 100% safe to run, play, and even fall!

4. Invisalign Equals Picture Perfect

It can take a couple years to completely straighten your teeth. During this time you are sure to attend an important event that includes lots of photography and documenting special memories. If you are wearing your Invisalign, no one will ever notice, allowing you to smile wide for the camera no matter the occasion.

5. Invisalign Is Comfortable

Traditional braces can rub up against your cheeks, causing discomfort and canker sores. Since Invisalign clings tight to your teeth without any protruding hardware you will experience less discomfort. The German Department of Orthodontics recently conducted a study to see how happy patients were while wearing Invisalign. Turns out, 93% of study participants considered Invisalign so comfortable they didn’t experience any impairments at all. Even though Invisalign is more comfortable, it still gets the job done; 89% of the same study participants were pleased with the speed of their progress.

6. Reduced Orthodontist Visits With Invisalign Braces

Since Invisalign trays are switched out in the privacy of your home, you don’t have to visit your orthodontist for frequent adjustments, as with metal braces. Typically patients only need to visit their orthodontist about once every 6 weeks while wearing Invisalign.

Invisalign For Teens

Invisalign teenWith proper cleaning techniques, frequent trips to the dentist, and a whole list of foods you can’t eat, traditional metal braces are a lot of work. In reality, teens live busy lives that often lack the proper time necessary for maintaining braces. This can be stressful for parents, who must always stay on top of their kids about taking care of their braces. Invisalign makes life easier for both parents and the teens that wear them. As a parent you don’t have to worry about your teen eating the wrong things or playing physical sports, like football. Learn more about Invisalign Teen in NYC.

Teens love Invisalign too; with first dates, prom, and school pictures the last thing teens want to wear through all of these milestones are braces. Invisalign offers straighter teeth without the insecurities metal braces can cause. Let your teen take as many “selfies” as they please, without any metal getting in the way. Plus, since teens are notorious for losing things, Invisalign Teen offers 6 free replacement trays.

What Dental Issues Can Invisalign Be Used To Treat?

It’s a common misconception that since Invisalign is non-invasive and practically invisible, it can only treat mild orthodontics cases. On the contrary, Invisalign can treat most oral health alignment issues, from crooked teeth to overbites. Since Invisalign trays are made to fit your teeth specifically, they can be especially ideal if you only have a few misaligned teeth. Read our Invisalign FAQ to see answers to some of our frequently asked questions.

Invisalign can be used to treat the following dental issues:

Gapped Teeth: During the development of your teeth gaps can form for several reasons. Prominent gaps leave portions of your gums unprotected, placing you at a greater risk for periodontal pockets and gum disease.

Crossbite: When your upper and lower jaw does not align, you have what is called a crossbite. This causes your upper teeth to clamp down on your lower inside teeth in at least one location. If left untreated, over time a crossbite can cause excessive tooth wear, bone loss and lead to gum disease.

Crowded Teeth: If your jaw is not large enough to accommodate all of your teeth, crowding will begin to occur. This causes your teeth to grow in crooked as they push up against one another, fighting for the limited space in your mouth. The longer teeth are allowed to crowd your mouth, the more crooked they will become. When teeth are pushed together like this bacteria has more places to hide, increasing your risk for plaque build up and other dental issues.

Underbite: Your lower jaw extending out past your upper jaw, causing your front teeth to sit in front of your upper teeth, characterizes an underbite. This can place excessive pressure on your jaw, creating discomfort, excessive tooth wear, and even TMJ disorder.

Overbite: When you close your mouth, if your upper teeth extends past your lower teeth you have an overbite. This can be solely a cosmetic issues but in some cases it can lead to gum issues, jaw problems and unnecessary wear on your lower teeth.

Open Bite: When your mouth is closed and your top teeth don’t reach to meet with your bottom teeth you have an open bite. Too much thumb sucking as a child or a genetic abnormality in your jaw structure can cause open bite. If not addressed this can lead to discomfort, TMJ disorder, speech problems, and difficulty chewing.

How To Clean And Take Care Of Your Invisalign Trays

Taking care of your Invisalign trays will help keep your Invisalign as low maintenance as intended to be. The main thing you need to do to keep your trays working productively is to regularly sanitize. To prevent an accumulation of bacteria, every time you take your liners in and out of your mouth, you will want to clean them. Think of it like this, if food is left trapped in your teeth and you reapply your trays, this food will be pushed down deep between your teeth and gums, increasing the decay process.

3 Steps to Clean Invisalign Trays:

1. Start by running room-temperature water over your Invisalign trays. You will want to avoid hot water because the plastic material trays are made with can change shape and formation if exposed to too high of heat.

2. Next, use a toothbrush with soft bristles to thoroughly clean both the inside and outside of your trays. Make small gentle circles to help remove any stuck on stains. Then rinse again. You may repeat the process if necessary.

3. Take a close look at your Invisalign trays, if you see any cloudy white film remaining this might be a sign of a calcium build up. Just like your teeth, liners can also build up with tartar. To remove this build up, let your trays soak in the Invisalign Cleaning System solution and it should dissolve.

Now that your trays are completely clean you can reapply without any risk for spreading bacteria. We recommend you go through this same cleaning process when you switch out your Invisalign trays every couple weeks, you will want to properly store your old trays in case you need them again throughout your treatment process. Whatever you do, don’t use mouthwash to clean your Invisalign trays—unless you want green or blue tinted retainers! The color pigment in mouthwash can actually stain Invisalign.

The Value Of Straight Teeth & A Gorgeous Smile

It’s not nice or even accurate to judge someone by his or her appearance, but in reality it happens everywhere you go. The brain naturally wants to categorize everything we come into contact with, and considering we make an initial judgment about someone within 3 seconds of meeting them, appearances are all we have to go off of. What is the first thing you notice when you meet someone? Study after study proves Americans tend to notice the appearance of ones’ teeth before anything else, in fact people remember your smile long after anything else.

A Kelton study asked 1,047 Americans to honestly rate the appearance of a series of people with a variety of teeth, from straight, to crooked and in between. While participants didn’t tend to mention teeth being the main difference in the photographs, they did give those with misaligned teeth less desirable scores. Participants also assumed that those with straight teeth held better jobs and lived an overall happier life. While someone with crooked teeth can live a great life, this study clearly shows how important people rank straight teeth.

Straight teeth are not only good for your reflection, when teeth are properly aligned and spaced within your mouth there is less chance for plaque to accumulate and other dental diseases to form. By giving yourself the gift of straighter teeth you can improve how others perceive you and prevent costly dental problems from arising. Straighter teeth will pay you back in so many ways! While traditional braces can be a pain, Invisalign is easy to use and costs about the same, making Invisalign well worth the investment.

Is Invisalign Right For You?

Invisalign is truly one of a kind, allowing you to live your life freely while still obtaining the straight teeth you’ve been dreaming about. Invisalign isn’t right for everyone, but it can effectively treat many orthodontics patients. Dr. Jacquie Smiles has been selected from over 55,000 practicing dentists and orthodontists as an elite provider of Invisalign. She is also considered among the top 1% of doctors in North America.

Would you spend thousands to keep your smile bright?

expensive-smiles

Your teeth represent only a small portion of your body, but they can use up a huge portion of your budget. Regular cleaning and checkups cost around $100, which can put a hefty dent in your pocketbook. Beyond that, advanced dentistry procedures can be insanely expensive—enough to blow your budget for the year. Some procedures cost more than your monthly paycheck!

While these procedures are expensive, they are worth it for many individuals. Whitening, brightening, and prosthetic teeth give people renewed confidence and joy in their appearance. They are no longer embarrassed to smile or laugh in public. And, for some, that’s worth a million bucks!

The four cosmetic dentistry procedures described in this article are some of the most expensive treatments available. They all cost more than $600, but keep in mind, these prices will vary based on your dentist, your location, and the condition of your teeth. 

Zoom! Teeth Whitening

What color are your teeth? Bright white? A little dingy? Yellow-tinged? Or something worse?

Teeth discoloration is embarrassing. It is caused by a variety of factors—mostly what we eat and drink. Things like coffee, tea, soda, and red wine can cause stains on the teeth. Using tobacco products can discolor the teeth, too.  Age also plays a part in teeth yellowing.

No matter what the cause, an off-white smile makes some individuals extremely self-conscious. When looking for a solution, you can choose between at-home whitening products or professional whitening done by the dentist. There are hundreds of teeth whitening products out there, but many people choose Zoom! Whitening because they want noticeable results and they want them immediately.

This professional teeth whitening system will set you back up to $600 per treatment. This high cost is largely due to the advanced technology used in the Zoom! system. It’s so powerful that it can whiten teeth up to eight shades in just one 60-minute appointment.

It is best to start the Zoom! Whitening process by having a full teeth cleaning. After the hygienist is finished with the cleaning, the whitening procedure starts with the dentist applying a hydrogen peroxide gel to your teeth. Then, you’ll sit under a special light for about 45 minutes. This light activates the gel and causes oxygen to enter your teeth. That action bleaches out the stains and removes the discoloration.

Some patients have sensitivity in their teeth after the procedure, but using an anti-sensitivity toothpaste and taking an over-the-counter pain reliever can help lessen that side effect. The results of Zoom! whitening will last for long time—possibly several years. Exactly how long the results last will depend on how well you take care of your teeth. After the Zoom! procedure, your dentist will provide you with a touch-up kit you can use at home to extend the whitening results. Avoiding staining agents (coffee, tea, tobacco products, etc.) and regular brushing/flossing will keep your smile bright and white. Dentists also recommend having in-office touch-up appointments once each year.

Keep in mind, individuals who are sensitive to light should not have Zoom! whitening. This includes patients undergoing PUVA therapy, photo-chemotherapy, or those with melanoma. Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding should delay having Zoom! whitening until they have finished lactating. For healthy individuals without these conditions, Zoom! whitening is completely safe. Your dentist will provide protection for the soft tissue in your mouth and for your eyes.

Porcelain Veneers

What if the appearance of your smile can’t be helped by whitening? Many individuals have stains and discoloration that is resistant to whitening procedures. Other people have ridges, chips, or some other type of damage on their teeth. To mask these problems and create a bright new smile, many people consider porcelain veneers.

In essence, this cosmetic dentistry treatment covers the tooth with a thin layer of porcelain—a material that is just as strong as normal tooth enamel.  The dentist grinds approximately 1/2 to 1 millimeter of enamel off the actual tooth to create room for the veneer. Then, the veneer is bonded to the tooth with strong cement. It won’t fall off and it can withstand normal eating, brushing, and the like. Plus, veneers are stain-resistant.

Porcelain veneers can fix a wide range of dental problems. They can camouflage fractured teeth, eliminate the appearance of gaps in the teeth, and replace discolored teeth with a clean white surface. This versatility is largely due to the fact that each veneer is custom-made in a laboratory. Each patient is guaranteed to get veneers that fit their mouth exactly. When they’re placed by a trained and qualified dentist, it’s impossible to tell that veneers not real teeth.

However, all of these advantages come with a hefty price tag. The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD) reported that patients spend more than $370 million each year on veneers. That amounts to between $800 and $2,000 per tooth.

Patients who are considering veneers should think about the potential drawbacks, too. Since a layer of top enamel is removed, your teeth may be extremely sensitive to hot and cold temperatures for a few days after the veneers are put on. Also remember that the veneers are permanent. There is really no way to remove them or regain the enamel that is ground off the teeth for the veneers’ placement.

Most individuals with veneers report that they last between five and 10 years. After that, the veneers will need to be replaced. To extend the life of your veneers, be gentle with your teeth. Don’t grind or clench your teeth. Don’t bite your nails or chew on hard objects like ice cubes or pen caps. And, of course, continue to brush and floss twice each day.

Dental Implants

Do you remember the excitement of losing your baby teeth? You’d wiggle and twist that tooth until you couldn’t stand the pain anymore. Maybe your brother or dad devised some wacky way to help you pull it out. Then, best of all, the tooth fairy would come!

As adults, there is no excitement when it comes to losing a tooth. There’s no giddy anticipation or fun games. And there’s definitely no tooth fairy to bring you money! In fact, losing a tooth can end up being extremely expensive.

When adult teeth fall out or are removed, there’s a lot of action going on in the mouth that you can’t see. That’s because each tooth is held in place by a bone in the jaw. When the tooth is no longer there, the body feels that there is no longer a need for the bone. The bone melts away and you’re left with a cave-like appearance in your mouth. Even more, that bone loss can affect the teeth that still remain in your mouth. Those teeth will shift and that can cause issues with your bite, jaw joints, facial muscles, and skin.

Dental implants can replace one or more teeth. In the most common implant procedure, the implant consists of a titanium rod that is inserted into the bone and an overlying crown that functions like a normal tooth. Titanium is an extremely strong material that is compatible with the body. When inserted into the jaw, it will actually fuse with your bone through a process called osseointegration.

The implantation process takes place in three steps. During the initial session, the dentist buries the rod deep into the gum line so that it attaches to the bone. The implant site will take two to six months to heal and, after that time, the rod should be properly fused to the bone. When the dentist sees that the implant is ready, he will attach a top piece to the rod (called the abutment) that will hold the prosthetic tooth. After a few weeks, the rod and abutment are fully healed and the dentist will place the crown on top.

As you can tell, getting dental implants is a long process. Not surprisingly, this is one of the most expensive dentistry procedures available. Estimates say that replacing one tooth with a dental implant can cost between $1,500 and $7,500. Having an entire mouth redone can cost upwards of $24,000 to $96,000.

Dental implants are extremely safe. They’re successful, too—only about 5 percent of implants fail. After an initial healing period of one or two weeks, the “fake” tooth on top of the dental implant will function exactly like a normal tooth. With proper oral hygiene, dental implants should last an entire lifetime. There’s no need for special treatment—just see the dentist for regular checkups and brush and floss like normal.

Dental Crowns

In addition to being used as part of a dental implant, a crown can be inserted directly onto an original tooth. A dental crown functions as a cap that covers the tooth all the way up to the gum line. It has the strength of a normal tooth and, in some cases, it retains the appearance of a normal tooth. There are many dental issues that can be corrected by a crown:

  • A crown can protect a decaying or damaged tooth from further damage.
  • A crown can restore function in a chipped or broken tooth.
  • A crown can be an aesthetic solution for a misshapen or discolored tooth.

Dental crowns are made from a variety of different materials—porcelain, metals, resins, ceramics, and stainless steel. Porcelain crowns are the most popular choice for cosmetic dentistry purposes. The porcelain can be colored to match the rest of the teeth and other people won’t even know it’s there. However, porcelain crowns are not as strong as metal-based crowns and they may cause wear to the adjacent teeth. The porcelain can also chip and may need to be repaired. Porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns make a good compromise. These crowns have the strength and durability of metal, but they generally maintain the appearance and color of normal teeth.

The type of crown you choose can greatly impact the cost of this dental procedure. Metal crowns can cost between $800 and $3,500 per tooth. All-porcelain crowns regularly cost more than $3,000 per tooth. If your dentist uses on-site computerized methods to create your crown, it may cost even more.

Placing a dental crown usually happens in two steps. At the first appointment, the dentist will examine the teeth and make sure that you don’t need any other dental procedures. After numbing the treatment area, the dentist will file down the tooth in order to make room for the crown. If the tooth is cracked or otherwise compromised, the dentist may use a filling material to build up a stable base for the crown. Next, the dentist will use putty to make an impression of the treatment area. Lastly, the dentist will use a temporary adhesive to insert a removable crown. The dental impressions will be sent to a lab and the crown will be ready in approximately three weeks. (Some dentists may be able to use special computerized manufacturing to make your crown on site in less than 30 minutes.) When the crown is ready, your dentist will remove the temporary crown and use a strong cement substance to insert the permanent crown.

A porcelain dental crown will last between five and 15 years, but sometimes, the crown must be removed early. It may chip, become loose, or simply fall out.  If this happens, you should visit the dentist right away to order a new crown and have a temporary crown placed over the affected tooth.

Are you ready to open your checkbook or get out your credit card? If you are considering any of these dentistry procedures, be sure to do your research first. You can search the internet to learn about all of your treatment options and find a dentist that fits your needs. You could also speak with your friends or family to get recommendations. Don’t rush into any dental procedure and be sure to ask lots of questions before paying for anything.

You should also consider recommitting yourself to preventive dental care. Dentists recommend brushing and flossing twice each day. You also need professional cleaning and dental checkups once every six months. Properly caring for your teeth and avoiding problems is the best way to keep your smile bright and healthy.  And it could save you thousands of dollars!

Everything You Need to Know for Getting that Perfect Smile

perfect-smile

Most of us want to have perfect teeth, but there are very different ideas as to what makes a beautiful smile. For some it will be the brightest and straightest teeth possible, while others will choose to keep minor imperfections such as a slight gap in between their front teeth, feeling it shows some of their personality and character. It is your choice entirely, as a smile is an incredibly personal thing, and although some people may choose to have a complete smile makeover, others will only want to make minor modifications to improve their appearance. Treatment is likely to include one or more of the most popular and most requested procedures. These can include:

  • Professional teeth cleaning
  • Teeth whitening
  • White fillings
  • Gum recontouring
  • Dental bonding and enamel recontouring
  • Porcelain veneers

Planning Your Perfect Smile

Book your consultation with Dr. Jacquie Smiles at her dental clinics located in NYC, NJ and Long Island to help you design a smile that compliments your personality, facial structure, skin tone and gender. This is a skilled process, and for full smile makeovers is likely to follow what are known as the golden proportions. These are measurements found in nature, and which are also used in architecture to help create a balanced and pleasing appearance. Each tooth will be designed to be in proportion to the rest of the teeth using pre-determined ratios. This helps create a perfect yet natural smile that will be uniquely yours. An experienced cosmetic dentist can explain exactly how a particular treatment can help, and will answer all the questions you might have. You’ll also receive a personalized treatment plan, showing the exact costs of each procedure.

If you do intend to have more than one procedure, your dentist will discuss the timing of treatments, as some are better carried out before others. For example, teeth whitening should be done before porcelain veneers, as your dentist will be able to exactly match the porcelain to your newly whitened teeth. It is far more difficult to bleach teeth to match veneers.

Professional Teeth Cleaning

Most people will have their teeth professionally cleaned at each checkup, as this treatment is important for keeping teeth and gums healthy and free from disease. So why is it on this list? The answer is simple, as a professional tooth cleaning helps to remove some of the surface stains on your teeth and has the effect of brightening your smile. Some people may find this is all that is required, but even if this isn’t the case it provides a very good starting point for treatments.

Your hygienist will scrape away all the yellow and hardened tartar from your teeth before polishing them to remove some of the surface stains. Once they have finished your teeth should have an added sparkle, and will feel super clean.

A professional cleaning is very inexpensive, and is likely to be covered by dental insurance as it regarded as being routine preventative care alongside your regular checkups.

Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is one of the most requested cosmetic dental treatments, and can be carried out one of two ways. Dr. Jacquie Smiles can either provide you with custom-made whitening trays and bleaching gel to use at home, or you can whiten in-office in as little as an hour. Call us at [drj_phone location=”nyc”] to request your consultation. We have 12 convinient office locations throughout NYC, New Jersey and Long Island areas.

If you choose to whiten at home then your dentist will custom-make your whitening trays. These will fit closely over your teeth so the bleaching gel cannot leak out. You’ll be provided with the correct strength of whitening gel to use at home, and will be give full instructions on how to use your trays. You will need to use the trays every day, leaving them in for an hour or more, and some people will wear them overnight. You’ll see results within just a few days, but may need to use the trays for a couple of weeks to get the full effects.

If you choose to whiten in-office then treatment will take about an hour, as the gels used are a lot stronger. Your gums will be protected before the gel is painted onto your teeth. It will gently lift surface stains, brightening the color of your teeth by several shades. The gel may need to be reapplied during treatment to continue the process. Afterwards your teeth should look beautifully white, and you’ll be given instructions on how to look after them for the next couple of days. The enamel will be more porous during this time, so it is important to avoid highly colored foods and to follow an all-white diet to avoid staining. After a few days your enamel should be back to normal.

Both methods have their advantages, as whitening slowly at home can help minimize side-effects in sensitive teeth, while whitening in-office provides stunning results that are immediately obvious, and is perfect for a special event. Treatment costs approximately $350 and is not covered by dental insurance as this is purely cosmetic.

The before and after photos show how the effectiveness of tooth whitening, but results can vary according to the natural color of your teeth

White Fillings

Lots of people may have stained white fillings or older style silver colored amalgam fillings. Replacing these with today’s modern composite fillings can brighten up a smile surprisingly well. All fillings need replacing periodically as they do deteriorate with age. Replacing your fillings can help improve appearance while protecting oral health.

Composite white fillings can be used to repair teeth with small to moderate sized cavities. The fillings are placed in just one visit, using local anesthetic. Your dentist will prepare the tooth, removing old fillings or decay, and will select the best colors of composite resin to blend in with your natural tooth. The material is placed in small increments, and is hardened using a special light. Once all the filling material is in place, it is shaped and polished to give a very natural appearance.

White composite resin is not strong enough to replace larger areas of decay in back teeth. Inlays repair the central part of the chewing surfaces of back teeth, while onlays can be used to repair larger areas of decay involving the loss of one or more cusps. The cusps are the raised points of the tooth on the inner and outer edges.

White composite resin fillings are more expensive than amalgam fillings as they are technique sensitive. The cost depends on the location and size of the filling. Smaller fillings in front teeth can be relatively inexpensive, and could be covered by your insurance. Fillings in back teeth will cost more, but at least part of the cost might be covered by insurance. White fillings need replacing every few years as they do stain. The cost of white fillings is approximately $100 upwards, depending on their size.

Porcelain fillings are more expensive than composite fillings, costing several hundred dollars or so, but are strong and durable and should last longer than composite fillings, typically ten years or more. Porcelain does not stain or discolor over time. Most types of porcelain fillings require two visits to your dentist, as these restorations are usually made in a dental laboratory.

These pictures show how the use of white fillings can create virtually invisible restorations, especially when used to replace amalgam fillings. Your teeth can be used normally soon after the placement of any type of filling. You might find teeth are slightly more sensitive for the first few days as the fillings settle down.

Gum Recontouring

Some people have what’s known as a “gummy smile” which means too much gum tissue is shown when smiling and talking. Gum recontouring removes excess gum tissue so teeth look longer and more evenly shaped. Your cosmetic dentist in New York can sculpt your gums so they complement the appearance of your teeth. If a substantial amount of gum tissue is removed it may be necessary to veneer or crown the teeth to create an even and pleasing appearance.

Gum recontouring is carried out under local anesthetic, and it does take a few weeks for the gums to heal and for swelling to go down. During this time you’ll need to take care to brush your teeth very gently, and to avoid very hard or crunchy foods.

The cost of gum reshaping can vary according to the amount of tissue requiring removal, but may be approximately $350 per tooth. If more extensive reshaping is required, removing gum and bone tissue, then costs can increase considerably to $1,000-$3,000 per tooth. Gum recontouring for cosmetic purposes is not usually covered by insurance, but if it will benefit your oral health then at least part of the cost could be covered.

These pictures show the dramatic results that can be achieved through gum recontouring, creating a more even and pleasant looking smile.

Dental Bonding and Enamel Recontouring

This process helps to reshape teeth in a way that is very non-invasive, using tooth colored composite resin combined with removing a very tiny amount of tooth enamel to create more pleasing contours. Dental bonding and enamel recontouring can be used to:

  • Hide chips and cracks in teeth
  • Hide stained teeth
  • Mend and lengthen teeth that have become worn down
  • Modify irregularly shaped teeth
  • Close up or minimize gaps in between teeth
  • Correct teeth that are slightly overlapping or out of alignment

Dental bonding and enamel recontouring can often be completed in just one visit to your NYC cosmetic dentist, and it might not even be necessary to have a local anesthetic. Your dentist will reshape your teeth using composite resin where necessary, and will remove a small amount of tooth enamel to give your teeth a more even appearance. Even though the amount of material removed and added is minimal, the results can be stunning. Dental bonding is quick, affordable and non-invasive.

Most people will be able to have this treatment, but your dentist might not recommend it if your tooth enamel is particularly weak or thin as there is the danger that removing more enamel could weaken the tooth too much. In this case your dentist might recommend you have porcelain veneers. The results of treatment should last for several years before it needs to be redone, but eventually composite resin will become stained. Prices can range from approximately $100 per tooth, depending on the amount of work required.

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are very thin porcelain shells that are custom-made to fit over the front surface of your tooth, wrapping around to cover the biting edge of the tooth. They can be used to:

  • Hide badly stained teeth
  • Cover up chips or worn areas
  • Close or minimize gaps in between teeth
  • Correct teeth that are slightly out of alignment or which are overlapping
  • Correct the shape of teeth

Most types of veneers require a tiny amount of tooth enamel too be removed so treatment is generally non-reversible. Veneers are very thin, typically 0.5mm or less and might seem quite fragile, but once bonded onto your teeth should be quite strong and resistant to chips and fractures, provided you resist the temptation to use your teeth as tools, and refrain from habits such as nail biting or crunching on ice cubes.

Once your teeth have been prepared, an impression is taken and sent to a dental laboratory. This is used to fabricate your veneers which can be fitted at your next visit. The result should be a perfect smile. It might take a few days to become accustomed to the veneers, and your teeth could feel slightly sensitive until they settle down.

Porcelain veneers can cost anywhere from $900 upwards per tooth. Your dentist can give you a more exact quote during your consultation. With proper care, veneers should last ten years or more before they need replacing. They will not change color or stain so your smile will remain looking as flawless as the day you had them fitted, and these before and after photos show how porcelain veneers can be used to hide various flaws.

Bridal Smile With Invisalign - Questions & Answers

bridal-smile-q&a

How soon before the wedding should brides start looking into invisalign?

It’s usually recommended at least one year prior to your wedding because the average adult orthodontic treatment in the U.S. is 11-12 months. One year or earlier is best because then there is ample time to whiten your teeth prior to your special day, too. If it’s less than one year before the wedding, the teeth may not be perfect but at least they’ll be better for the hundreds of photos. My brides and grooms continue to finish their treatment after coming back from their honeymoon.

Who is the right candidate for invisalign?

That’s a great question because everyone is a candidate for invisalign but not every doctor is the right candidate to do it on them. You see, invisalign is a technology company that owns the computer software and the plastic material the trays are made from – which you wear while straightening your teeth. Everyone is a candidate for invisalign orthodontic treatment but please be careful when choosing your doctor for complex cases since invisalign is only a ½ day course doctors take. The most important part of a doctor’s training is the 3 years of specialty after dental school when they’re studying to become an orthodontist. For more difficult cases, please make sure that first you choose an orthodontist and one who has the experience level to create your beautiful smile.

Is there anyone who should avoid getting invisalign and why?

As long as your teeth are healthy and you have no cavities or gum disease, there isn’t any medical reason not to choose invisalign. There are several advantages to straightening your teeth with a clear removable braces than something fixed to your teeth like traditional braces. See below

How does invisalign work?

invisalign

I always say, “Teeth are not that smart! If you have pressure on a tooth over a consistent period of time, teeth move.” Teeth don’t know what exerted the pressure or whether the pressure came from traditional braces or a series of clear plastic invisalign trays. As long as you wear the clear plastic tray, called an aligner, it will move your teeth into the direction your doctor designed and measured for your final smile. This is important to know because choosing an orthodontist is like choosing an artist. Orthodontic treatment is a combination of medical science and art. If you went to 5 different invisalign doctors, you would have 5 different looking smiles. It is no different than picking a plastic surgeon. If you went to 5 different plastic surgeons for a nose job or rhinoplasty, you would have 5 different looking noses. (Doctors should have their own signature smile and therefore, ask your doctor for their Look Book at your consultation for cases they finished so you can see firsthand what your finished smile could potentially look like.)

A mold or computer scan is taken of your teeth. Your doctor will write a treatment plan on how your teeth and overall smile should look and email it with your case to Costa Rica, where the software implementation is done. After your doctor has completed measuring and designing your smile with their lab technician in Costa Rica, they accept your case. The accepted case’s files are then sent to invisalign’s manufacturing facility in Juarez, Mexico. The plastic is made in Mexico and then shipped back to your doctor’s office. My patients are usually surprised at how detailed the invisalign system is and how many different channels it goes through creating their perfect smile. I reference it to being like a football game where the doctor is the quarter back for the team.

Is there any discomfort or pain?

Because the movement is more gradual with each tray, there is less discomfort with invisalign than with traditional braces. After all, there isn’t any irritation from braces or pokey wires to get used to. My patients who have had braces before say that it’s like riding a bicycle and even getting used to speaking with it is easier. Patients who speak more than one language also get used to speaking with the aligners faster and say that there’s an easier adjustment period. Otherwise, I ask my patients to please give themselves one week to get used to speaking with them, removing them to eat and cleaning them.

How long does it take to see results from start to finish, typically?

Again, great question! This is a very subjective question and lurks in the eyes of the beholder…the patient. One third of my patients notice a difference within the first one third of their treatment. Another third notices a difference half way through their treatment, while my last 1/3 are so busy with work and life around them that they look in the mirror at the end and say, “OMG!” All in all, I can promise you that showing my patients what they used to look like in the beginning …at the end of their treatment is such a WOW factor that their comments never get old and still till this day is my favorite office visit with them. It’s like watching your art come to life!

How much does invisalign cost?

Invisalign should be the same as traditional clear braces. Clear braces are made out of ceramic or plastic. Plastic stains and ceramic doesn’t. Invisalign should cost the same as clear ceramic braces. The fees are based on treatment time. A patient in treatment for 6 months should theoretically pay ¼ of the fee a patient would pay for 24 months. The problem is that because of discount websites and misleading advertising, patients see ads for $2999 and think they can have one year of orthodontic treatment. I try to advise patients, friends and even people that stop me in other states, while I’m lecturing, “Buyer beware.” If it sounds to good to be true than it probably is. $2999 is for a minimal 3-6 mos. case without any fine tuning of it. It’s most likely a general dentist and not an orthodontist that took ½ day course and it works well when doing combination treatment like veneers or crowns and very minimal orthodontic movement is required. Orthodontists went to school for an average of 3 additional years full time to study facial symmetry and esthetic signature smiles that are functional and healthy, in addition to just looking good.

Can you please explain the pros of invisalign over regular traditional braces?

Pros or Advantages:

  1. There aren’t any food restrictions because you remove them to eat. Feel free to bite into corn on the cob or an apple anytime. When you’re done, make sure your teeth are clean and pop your clear braces back in.
  2. Brushing, flossing and keeping your teeth clean is easier
  3. There isn’t any loose or pokey wires that rub the inside of your cheek or lips
  4. Your visits to the office aren’t as frequent
  5. They are less noticeable and more esthetic than traditional braces

Cons or Disadvantages:

Your outcome and smile is based on two things.

  1. Compliance!! How disciplined and good you are at wearing your clear trays or aligners. If you think you won’t wear them the recommended 22 hours per day, then maybe traditional braces might be a better choice for you.
  2. The design and measurements of your doctor’s treatment plan for you. (Therefore, please take your time choosing your invisalign doctor and choose wisely…cost being the least influential decision maker. See below)

Can invisalign fix your bite or only straighten your teeth?

The majority of patients come in for an orthodontic consultation to look better. It is an orthodontist’s obligation and sworn oath to fix malocclusions or “bad bites” because of health reasons and not just for “prettiness”. When teeth are where they are supposed to be they look great but are also in a healthy occlusion or healthy bite. Crowded teeth accumulate more bacteria causing more gum problems linking it to heart disease, diabetes and low birth weight babies.

What other cosmetic dentistry would you suggest for a bride?

My number one suggestion prior to your wedding day is professionally whitening your teeth at your dentist’s office. I would recommend it 5-7 days before the wedding day…and PLEASE avoid red wine during that week. I would avoid it even on my wedding day. You’re wearing a white dress with perfectly pearly straight white teeth. The last thing you need is red wine. J

Do you have any general tips for how brides can maintain a healthy and radiant smile for their wedding?

Absolutely!

  1. Use baking soda and peroxide the morning of your wedding. It will neutralize your breath and cause your teeth to sparkle. Feel free to use it once or twice throughout the day, too.
    1. Wet your toothbrush with a capful of hydrogen peroxide (yes, the one that comes in the ugly brown bottle) and dip into a box of baking soda. (yes, the boring box some people keep in their refrigerator to keep it smelling fresh) . . .after all, where do you think they invented toothpaste with baking soda and peroxide? J
  2. My second favorite piece of advice is after applying your lipstick, use a chapstick with a fresh minty scent on the inside of your lips. Being a bride, you will be the center of attention and everyone will want to speak to you. Like most brides, you probably ate minimally – if at all – before you walked down the aisle. Also, when you’re nervous, you create less saliva which acts as an agent to naturally wash away the bacteria causing bad breath. Therefore, since you’ll be so close with everyone and everyone wants to talk to the beautiful bride, use a flavored chapstick, after you applied your lipstick! You and your guests will thank me later.

Possibly the most popular request that falls under the category for cosmetic dentistry would be teeth whitening. Dr. Jacquie Fulop-Goodling offers several different whitening treatment systems. When trays with bleach are used, impressions are taken and the resulting trays are filled with a bleaching agent. Results can be seen in as early as 3 days. Varying agents can be used and this method is an extremely effective way of whitening sensitive teeth. This method can be used on patients after the full eruption of their second molars, around 12 years of age.

When the in-office bleaching method is used, a stronger agent is painted on the teeth and then activated with a plasma light. Depending on the strength used, the agent can whiten teeth up to 8 to 10 shades lighter. This method is wonderful for patients who can not tolerate wearing a tray or who have a special occasion coming up soon.

Tooth Reshaping and Dental Contouring in Monroe, NY

Tooth-contouring-NYC

Tooth reshaping, also called dental contouring, is a cosmetic dentistry technique that removes small amounts of tooth enamel in order to change the shape, length, or surface of one or more teeth. Dr. Jacquie Smiles specializes in teeth contouring and dental reshaping for her patients in Monroe, NY and Orange County. Defects in teeth can attract unwanted attention and can make people feel insecure and avoid smiling. Tooth reshaping is minimally invasive treatment that is performed by Dr. Jacquie Smiles for her patients at her dental office located near Monroe, NY.

Fix problems with your smile using tooth contouring:

  • Small chips
  • Uneven tooth length
  • Slight overlaps
  • Flattened or pointy tooth edges
  • Correct minor bite problems

To schedule your tooth contouring consultation with Dr. Jacquie Smiles in Monroe, NY, please call 845-782-4288 or fill out the contact form to receive additional information. Conveniently located near 70 Gilbert Street, Suite 202, Monroe, NY 10950.

How it works 

Tooth reshaping is performed using dental instruments and abrasion techniques Dr. Jacquie Smiles for her Monroe and Orange County patients. Dental X-rays may be taken before the reshaping and contouring begin to ensure that your teeth are healthy. A sanding instrument is used to eliminate or minimize imperfections on the surface of the teeth.

Benefits of teeth contouring

Some of the benefits of tooth countering for Monroe, NY patients include:

  • This is an inexpensive way to improve the look of your teeth. The procedure generally costs $100 to $300 per tooth, depending on how much work is needed.
  • Because only surface enamel is removed in tooth reshaping and dental contouring, there’s generally no discomfort during the procedure and no anesthesia is required.
  • Improves health of teeth. Removing minor overlaps and other imperfections where tartar and plaque can build up lowers your risk of decay and gum disease. 
  • Substitute for braces. In some situations, tooth reshaping and dental contouring may be a possible substitute for braces since they make teeth look a little straighter and eliminate minor overlapping.

Tooth contouring can be combined with whitening for a dramatically younger-looking smile. It’s also often used in conjunction with cosmetic bonding or dental veneers — both of which can be used to reshape teeth with larger imperfections.

Ideal Candidates for Tooth Contouring

The best candidates for tooth contouring are people in Monroe, NY who have teeth that are misshapen or poorly aligned, affecting the overall aesthetics of the smile. They should be in otherwise good dental health and have teeth that are strong and healthy.

Invisalign Teeth Straightening Treatment

Invisalign treatment involves a  visit to your orthodontist’s office. During your appointment, the orthodontist observes any issues that can be solved with the use of Invisalign teeth straightening treatment. An important factor about receiving Invisalign treatment from an orthodontist is the in-person benefits. Surprisingly, many patients are unaware of serious issues hiding in their mouth. An orthodontist will be able to point these issues out, correct them and prepare you for Invisalign treatment.

Once you are prepared to safely receive Invisalign treatment the orthodontist takes an impression of your teeth and creates a mold that is later used to create your custom made Invisalign aligners. These clear and durable aligners are used to shift and move your teeth into perfect alignment gradually.

Invisalign Pros and Benefits

  • Minimal maintenance – Invisalign aligners are durable and easy to use. Generally, patients are advised to use one set of Invisalign aligners for two weeks at a time. During the two weeks, there is minimal maintenance required to care for the aligners. Cleaning them with water on a daily basis is recommended.
  • Self-confidence – One of the most common complaints about standard metal braces is the lack of self-confidence during treatment. Invisalign aligners are clear which means onlookers won’t notice you are straightening your teeth.
  • Comfort – As mentioned previously, standard metal braces, brackets and wires are uncomfortable for almost all patients receiving treatment. However, Invisalign teeth straightening treatment is smooth comfortable and almost forgettable during use.
  • Removable – Orthodontists recommend removing Invisalign aligners before eating or consuming food and drinks. The easy to remove aligners can be placed in their case discreetly while the user enjoys a meal.

Invisalign Cons

  • Twenty-two-hour use per day – Orthodontists recommend Invisalign clear aligners are worn for at least twenty two hours per day. The only time patients should remove their aligners is to eat or drink.
  • More expensive than standard metal braces – Invisalign aligners are highly affordable for almost all budgets, but the cost for treatment is slightly higher than conventional metal braces.
  • Tooth discomfort – Invisalign aligners are responsible for gradually moving and turning misaligned teeth into place. This gradual process can cause discomfort and pain at times.
  • Inconvenience in public – Patients that go to restaurants often feel embarrassed to remove their Invisalign aligners in public. However, most patients excuse themselves and go to the restroom to remove their aligners and place them in their designated safety case.

Smile Direct Club Teeth Straightening Treatment

Treatment from the Smile Direct Club involves receiving clear aligner teeth straightening treatments remotely. This teeth straightening service is generally done through the mail by the use of at-home kits. Patients receive a boxed kit delivered to their front door that includes the necessary tools needed to conduct an at-home mold of teeth. Once the mold taking process is complete, the patient packs it up and sends it to the Smile Direct Club.

Once the Smile Direct Club processing center receives the box, the clear aligners are custom made to suit the treatment of the individual patient. Next, the aligners are mailed to the patient for immediate use. The patients continue to follow the directions properly by inserting the aligners as well as caring for them during treatment.

Smile Direct Club Pros and Benefits

  • Removable aligners – The clear aligners are comfortable to remove on a daily basis when consuming food and drinks.
  • The average treatment plan is only six months – The time frame for the treatment process is based on the needs of the individual patient. However, most patients only require a six months plan.
  • No attachments necessary – Standard braces often come with uncomfortable brackets, rubber bands, and metal wires. Clear aligners do not need any attachments that cause discomfort.
  • Wearable while playing sports – Teen and adult patients will be happy to learn that clear aligners can be easily worn while practicing and playing sports.

Smile Direct Club Cons

  • Delayed shipment process – Patience wait at least four to five weeks for their aligners to be shipped and received at their front door.
  • Unforeseen pain and discomfort – Since the original molds are taken at home by the patient, an orthodontist is not able to pinpoint any severe issues before treatment begins. The oversight of serious problems not detected during the molding process can cause pain and discomfort during treatment.
  • Removal before eating – The easy removal of clear aligners is often a benefit, but some patients have found it quite embarrassing when removing aligners in public.
  • Difficulty speaking – The clear aligners are precisely molded to cover your teeth correctly. However, during the beginning of treatment, some patients have found it difficult to speak correctly with the added layer of the clear aligner covering their teeth.

Overall both Invisalign and Smile Direct Club provide patients with the opportunity to straighten their teeth with clear aligners. The main difference between both options is being under the supervision of an orthodontist. Patients that receive Invisalign treatment under the direct supervision and guidance of a licensed orthodontist often avoid unforeseen discomfort, pain, and other issues while patients of Smile Direct Club often become anxious due to the lack of direct contact of an orthodontist.

Benefits of Invisalign Teeth Straightening Treatment

  • Invisible to the eye – Teens and adults are excited when they realize the clear aligners are barely noticeable. The invisibility often encourages patients to choose Invisalign over standard metal braces.
  • Easy to remove – Orthodontists recommend patients of Invisalign remove the aligners before eating and drinking. The removal of the aligners is necessary to help prevent damage due to chewing and heat. The aligners are easy to remove and insert afterward.
  • Boost self-confidence – As the Invisalign treatment progresses, patients have reported a boost in self-confidence as their teeth become straighter. They often find themselves smiling more in pictures and in person.
  • Prevents plaque and tartar buildup – Standard metal braces involves brackets, wires and sometimes rubber bands. These metal pieces adhere to teeth which makes it is easy for tartar and plaque to build up between the crevices. Invisalign aligners are clear and removable which allows the patient to brush their teeth and floss after every meal which helps prevent bacterial growth, and plaque or tartar build up.
  • Only six months of commitment – The length of the treatment plan is determined by the individual needs of the patient. However, most patients only require six months worth of treatment to achieve their perfect, beautiful straight smile.

Cons of Invisalign Teeth Straightening Treatment

  • Requires responsibility during treatment – Clear aligners provide a multitude of benefits for patients, but it also demands responsibility to properly care for the aligners and follow the specific plan formatted by the orthodontist. This includes making sure you wear the aligners at least 22 hours per day.
  • Removal before meals – As mentioned earlier, Invisalign aligners need to be removed before consuming food and drinks. Food can stain aligners as well as chewing action can damage them severely which interferes with your treatment. Hot beverages are also a common culprit for ruining aligners which interferes with the progress of the treatment.
  • Brushing teeth frequently – Dentists have recommended that you brush after every meal throughout your entire lifetime. However, when it comes to using Invisalign treatment, it’s mandatory that you brush and floss after every meal to remove tiny particles from in between teeth. Particles that are left behind and covered with clear aligners for hours at a time can create bacteria growth, odor, tooth decay, and other issues.
