Choosing Accelerated Orthodontics Over A Cosmetic Procedure
Patients who have aesthetic concerns about their teeth typically have a treatment method in mind whenever they decide to consult with their dentist. Often patients will desire veneers or crowns to help their teeth look straighter or less crowded in a shorter amount of time. What many patients may not understand, however, is that certain orthodontic issues can be the culprit for their poor bite or crooked teeth and that treating these problems with veneers or crowns could make the condition worse. Additionally, many dentists will fail to identify the underlying causes of a patient’s dental concerns and offer inappropriate or unnecessary treatments. Rather than have you risk undergoing an irreversible procedure that may not be suited for your teeth, Dr. Kohani may offer accelerated orthodontics, which provides many of the aesthetic results you are looking for in an efficient and timely manner.
Cosmetic procedures like veneers and crowns are excellent treatment options that provide beautiful results, but it is important for dentists and patients alike to understand the nature of a patient’s dentition truly and diagnose necessary conditions before moving forward with treatment. Dr. Kohani gives you the ability to see how certain procedures can enhance or detract from the health and appearance of your teeth, allowing you to make an educated decision about which treatment is right for you.
Quick and Beautiful Cosmetic Results
Dr. Kohani is able to perform orthodontic procedures quickly by using devices like nickel and titanium wires, heat-activated and super elastic wires, as well as smart brackets and Invisalign. The combination of orthodontic systems allows Dr. Kohani to produce optimal results in six to eight months instead of two to three years. Orthodontic treatment is also more detail-oriented and results-driven with Dr. Kohani since he schedules follow-up appointments with patients on a weekly basis as opposed to every month.
At La Jolla Cosmetic Dentistry & Orthodontics, we use only the most cosmetically appealing appliances as an orthodontic solution. With adults, in particular, we understand that metal brackets and wires can impact your appearance, but with clear brackets and braces, you can straighten your teeth without anyone noticing. Additionally, a lack of metal means improved comfort while you receive treatment.
