When you look in the mirror are you pleased with the smile you see, or do misaligned teeth cause you to dream about a better smile? Perhaps you have considered getting braces before but the idea of having a mouth full of metal for a couple of years is unappealing. A revolutionary new way of straightening teeth, Powerprox, is storming cosmetic dentistry in Richmond TX.
What is Powerprox?
Powerprox is a new orthodontic system by which teeth are moved into the desired position in as little as six months. Does it sound too good to be true? This system actually uses orthodontic components which have been used for decades to straighten teeth. What’s different is that new techniques and technology, in combination with time-tested components produce a more efficient method of repositioning teeth.
People are turning toward this new cosmetic dentistry in Richmond TX to get their best smile by straightening their teeth quickly and easily. Special wires and brackets are used in Powerprox. There is also a unique protocol implemented which helps move teeth faster through bone.
Obtaining Your Best Smile with Cosmetic Dentistry in Richmond TX
Powerprox uses low forces to accelerate the movement of teeth into the desired position. In the past, traditional braces used heavy forces, which research has shown to actually slow down the process. Gentler forces allow the teeth to move through the bone and soft tissues faster because bruising of protective tissues is minimized.
A special arch-wire is used with the Powerprox system. This wire has shape memory. The dentist determines the correct positioning of your teeth and sets the shape-memory wire to this position. When attached to misaligned teeth, this shape-memory wire slowly brings teeth into alignment.
Discreet and Efficient
Powerprox braces don’t use the metal brackets of traditional braces. Powerprox brackets are made of a durable clear material which is adhered to your teeth. The brackets are barely noticeable. The arch-wires of the Powerprox system are also barely noticeable. Your Powerprox braces give you the advantage of having your teeth straightened in a short period of time without the “metal mouth” look.
Keeping Your Smile Straight
When you have your teeth straightened, there is always a chance they will begin to drift back to the original position if a retainer is not worn. Powerprox patients are no exception. You will need to wear a retainer; however, just like the Powerprox braces, the retainer is also very discreet. The clear retainer will be constructed to fit your teeth uniquely. Alternatively, a wire retainer adhered to the back of your teeth may be used.
