Love your Smile: Orthodontics

34Orthodontics are a smart investment because they produce a priceless reward: A beautiful smile. Your smile is an important part of your appearance, self-identity, and self-esteem.

Orthodontic treatment provides all of the following benefits and more:

  • Teeth that are less prone to chipping and wear
  • Well aligned teeth that are easier to care for
  • Lower chance of dental decay, gum disease, and other oral health problems
  • A proper bite that makes it easy to chew and speak properly
  • Increased confidence and psychological well being

Orthodontic Treatment in Goshen

33All of our patients are referred to a graduate of a formal orthodontic program. The extra two years of intense training in this area is important to providing acceptable, successful, and safe treatment for orthodontic patients. The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that children have an evaluation by 7 years of age and we do this initial evaluation and refer the patient when it is time for a more thorough evaluation by the orthodontist.

Some teeth can be made to look straight with the use of crowns and porcelain veneers. These mild cases can be treated right here in our office in just 2-3 appointments. Porcelain veneers are often called “instant orthodontics” because of the way they can modify the smile alignment. Both veneers and crowns can strengthen your teeth and even out your smile for about ten years.

Cosmetic enhancements with veneers or crowns do not provide all of the benefits of orthodontic treatment, but will quickly provide the patient with an attractive smile through the restorative correction of crooked, spaced, or misaligned teeth.
