When you’re accustomed to looking at an unattractive smile in the mirror, it can be hard to envision the possible results of your smile makeover. SNAP imaging can help you visualize your new smile, which can help you stay patient throughout the treatment plan and keep your eyes on the prize.
This unique system offers before-and-after photos using specialized computer software. Dr. Burton will take high-resolution “before” photos and upload them into the system. Dr. Burton can then make the anticipated changes to the smile using the software and produce your expected “after” photos.
When teeth need to be repaired or replaced as part of the smile makeover, crowns or bridges may be included in the treatment plan.
Patients with crooked teeth want to improve the appearance of their smiles, but they may be reluctant to hide those smiles behind metal brackets and wires. The Inman Aligner offers an alternative that’s less intrusive on the smile’s appearance while you are in treatment.
The Inman Aligner is a clear plastic retainer with spring-loaded aligner bars. The entire appliance applies constant pressure to the teeth to push slightly protruding or crowded teeth into the right spots. The treatment is completed far more quickly than standard orthodontics, anywhere from 4-16 weeks.
This approach is also more convenient for patients than conventional orthodontics, as the retainer can be removed at mealtime or for oral hygiene purposes or for special occasions.
