If you want to have that signature Hollywood smile, dental veneers just might be the answer. These tooth-colored, ultra-slim shells of porcelain are tailor-fitted to conceal your real teeth to give you a beautiful and dazzling smile. Dental veneers are highly capable of fixing a myriad of cosmetic imperfections, from badly stained teeth to a slightly misaligned bite and gaps in between your teeth.

Additionally, advances in modern cosmetic dentistry can produce veneers that provide a more natural feel and look than what was available several years before. During your appointment here at our practice in Jacksonville, FL, our cosmetic dentistry specialist, Dr. Selena Marchan, DMD, can tell you about veneers and how you can benefit from them.

How Do Dental Veneers Work Exactly?

Veneers are available in porcelain and composite resin materials. These super-slim, yet sturdy shells are specifically made to hide your teeth’s front surface. Porcelain veneers are the most sought-after option since they possess light-reflecting qualities that are very similar to the sheen of real teeth. They’re applied directly over your front teeth to mask cosmetic defects and to change the length, shape, and size of the teeth.

Advantages of Dental Veneers

  • Since veneers are crafted from a material that closely mimics real teeth and is shaped individually for the patient, it is virtually impossible to see the difference between real teeth and veneers.
  • You can choose from various “whiteness” shades when figuring out the most suitable level of whiteness you want for your veneers.
  • With routine and proper care, coupled with regular visits to our Jacksonville office, this cosmetic dentistry treatment could give you that Hollywood smile for many years to come.

Am I an Ideal Candidate for Dental Veneers?

If you have minor gaps in between your teeth that really need correcting, you can opt for veneers instead of braces. If you have cracks or chips in your teeth or have minor misalignment, veneers could likewise effectively hide those as well. Additionally, veneers are the best solution for healthy, yet stained, teeth that professional teeth whitening can’t fix.

Invisalign is the revolutionary way to straighten your smile easily, quickly, and comfortably. If you are considering orthodontic treatment, you owe it to yourself and your smile to consider Invisalign. Offered here at Dr. Selena Marchan's in Jacksonville, FL, Invisalign can improve your smile in a way that fits comfortably into your lifestyle—read on to learn more!

Why should I choose Invisalign?

Invisalign uses a unique system of oral appliances known as aligners. Made of clear, smooth plastic, these aligners are virtually invisible, totally comfortable, and completely removable, allowing you to enjoy all of the foods that you love during treatment. This removability also makes it easier to keep your smile healthy, as you can simply take out the aligners to brush and floss as you normally would.

What can Invisalign treat?

Invisalign corrects the same dental problems as conventional brackets and wires including overbite, underbite, crossbite, open bites, and gaps between teeth.

How does Invisalign work?

Treatment begins when you receive your first set of Invisalign aligners, which you wear for two weeks. Afterward, you receive your next set of aligners, which you wear for another two weeks. You will then move on to a new set of aligners every two weeks as your teeth gradually and comfortably move into proper position. You will visit your dentist every few weeks to monitor your progress.

How long does Invisalign treatment take?

You can expect your Invisalign treatment to be completed in 9 to 15 months, depending on your individual case and your individual characteristics.

Interested? Give us a call!

You deserve your best smile, and Invisalign can help you achieve it. To find out more about revolutionary Invisalign orthodontic treatment, call Dr. Selena Marchan in Jacksonville, FL, today at (904) 221-5678.

InvisalignWhen orthodontic treatment is needed to correct bite and alignment problems that stand in the way between you and straighter teeth, it can present something of a dilemma, especially for adults and teenagers. In the past, the road to straighter teeth meant wearing metallic braces for up to two years, which many teenagers and adults are reluctant to do for a number of reasons. But thanks to Invisalign clear aligner trays, you no longer have to choose between straight teeth and giving up two years of your life to traditional braces. Dr. Selena Marchan, a family dentist in Jacksonville, FL, recommends Invisalign for older teenagers and adults looking for an effective and discreet method for getting straighter teeth.

Straighten Your Smile Discreetly with Invisalign in Jacksonville, FL

The most obvious benefit of the Invisalign system is that it consists of high quality plastic trays that are practically invisible when placed on your teeth. Unlike braces, which are held in place through a system of brackets and wires that restrict your diet, oral hygiene routine, and can feel uncomfortable, Invisalign trays are removable for up to two hours every day. This means that you can continue to eat your favorite foods without restriction, and keep up your oral hygiene routine throughout the treatment process.

Depending on your needs, the treatment period may be shorter with Invisalign than with traditional braces. Each tray is worn for approximately two weeks and then changed for the next tray in the series. Invisalign gradually shifts your teeth into the desired alignment just like traditional braces, so you can expect the same results without the sacrifice.

Also, your Jacksonville family dentist uses the latest diagnostic techniques, including digital X-ray imaging and intra-oral cameras. She makes recommendations for orthodontic care as needed and even offers Invisalign clear aligners for teen and adult patients who desire well-aligned, attractive smiles.
