If you are considering having your teeth corrected, this post is for you. Today’s article provides specifics Invisalign orthodontics.

The name Invisalign is an apt description of what this technologically advanced system does: align teeth invisibly. With Invisalign, patients receive custom plastic aligners that fit snugly over the teeth. Every couple of weeks, as the teeth move, the patient changes the aligners. Patients appreciate the fact that Invisalign trays are barely noticeable and they don’t restrict a normal diet. It is also beneficial that they are easy to keep clean.

Straighten Your Smile with Invisalign In Comstock Park

Straighten Your Smile With Invisalign Rockford MI

Remember when Rockford MI adolescents undergoing orthodontic treatment were mortified by their metal mouth? Thankfully, those days are over. With the new and innovative methods braces can be very descrete. At the office of Bruce A. Stewart and Eric Hull there are two great options–Invisalign and Six Month Smile.  Both are very unnoticeable.

There are some kids (and many adults!) that are not thrilled about having metallic fuchsia bands and neon yellow wires adorning their teeth. Discrete Invisalign aligners are virtually undetectable and straighten teeth just as quickly and effectively as metal braces. Another benefit of the Invisalign system is that the aligners are not permanently attached to the teeth. Invisalign aligners are easily slipped out for brushing, flossing, meals, and sports. If your Comstock Park child plays a musical instrument that defies traditional braces, removable aligners may be the best option.

Six Months Smiles uses traditional orthodontic methods but with modern materials.  The brackets and wires are nearly invisible and better yet the average treatment time is only six months long. You should talk to your family dentist to find out if this innovative procedure will work for your smile.

If you or one of your children need orthodontic treatment in the Rockford MI area, call Stewart & Hull at 616-827-7019 to schedule a consultation with Bruce Stewart. Stewart & Hull is located at 769 York Creek Dr NW in Comstock Park. We also provide comprehensive restorative and cosmetic dentistry. If you need affordable state-of-the-art dental care in Comstock Park, let us tell you about our financing options.

Whatever your age, if you want to straighten your teeth, we have wires and bands to match every outfit in your closet!

It’s Not Too Late To Get Them Straight

Straighten Your Teeth With Invisalign Near Rockford MI

Are you an adult the Grand Rapids area with misaligned teeth? Do you regret not having orthodontic treatment when you were a teen? It’s not too late to straighten your teeth.

Invisalign and Six Month Smiles are two different programs for straightening teeth which are commonly used in cosmetic dental practices in the Grand Rapids, Comstock Park and Rockford MI areas.

Invisalign ‘Invisible braces’ work well for many Comstock Park men and women of all ages. Invisalign is the trade name of a proprietary orthodontic system used in the Michigan dental community.  Patients wear clear, practically invisible, custom-molded aligners which are changed every two weeks until the teeth are straightened.

Six Month Smiles provides tooth colored porcelain brackets with a tooth colored wire with an estimated treatment time of 6-8 months.

Once the orthodontic treatment has been completed, a retainer will be necessary. Invisalign Vivera retainers are clear removable retainers that will keep your teeth in alignment. Some Grand Rapids patients believe clear retainers are more comfortable than other types.

If you want more beautiful teeth, call Stewart & Hull in Comstock Park for a free consultation. Dr. Stewart and Dr. Hull will examine your teeth and recommend the most effective system for you.

Stewart & Hull is a full-service general, family, and cosmetic dental practice. We meet and exceed our patients’ expectations. Ask us about cosmetic dentistry, restorative dentistry, and implant dentistry.

Beautiful Smiles With Cosmetic Dentistry In Comstock Park A great smile is essential for putting your best face forward. At Stewart & Hull, we not only restore teeth to their original condition; we make many Rockford MI smiles better than they ever were before!

Some patients have only a few problems they wish to correct. Perhaps one or two teeth are misshapen and seem out of alignment. If the problem teeth are only superficially crooked—meaning they do not need to be moved into place with orthodontia—porcelain veneers are the answer. Veneers are wafer-thin porcelain covers that are attached to the front of one or more teeth. They are extremely versatile and can correct shape, color, or both. If you like your teeth just how they are, then straighten them using Invisalign Clear Braces.

Another plus: porcelain veneers are essentially non-invasive and do not affect healthy tooth structure.

Some of our Grand Rapids and Comstock Park dental patients were happy with their smile in years past but now want to bring up the whiteness a notch or two. Teeth whitening is a popular procedure for our Rockford MI cosmetic dentistry clients. We provide a variety of teeth whitening options for every type of smile. If you are ready to brighten your smile,  please call our office to schedule a free consultation.  We look forward to helping you find the best tooth whitening system for your smile and life style.


Cosmetic Dentistry Options

Categories: Cosmetic Dentistry

So Many Cosmetic Dentistry Options In Grand Rapids Have you thought about upgrading your smile? Cosmetic dentistry offers many exciting possibilities.

The quickest and least invasive procedure is light teeth whitening. The results are dramatic and teeth whitening side effects are minimal.

If your teeth are slightly crooked, but require no orthodontic work, porcelain veneers could be the answer. Porcelain teeth veneers are translucent, wafer-thin covers that are permanently attached to the front of teeth, correcting chips and stains. Prepless veneers do not require the removal of tooth structure.

If your teeth are more than slightly crooked, it’s not too late to straighten them. Patients of all ages are undergoing orthodontic treatment and achieving fantastic results. Invisalign has been straightening teeth nearly invisibly for many years now.

Has gum recession caused the metal base of an old crown to be visible? Soft tissue grafts and crown replacement can correct this problem.

Are you missing one or more teeth? One of the best tooth replacement options is a dental implant. A dental implant consists of a titanium post surgically inserted into the jaw bone to replace the root of the missing tooth. The post integrates with the bone to provide a stable foundation for the replacement tooth.

Can you envision yourself with a dental makeover?
Call Stewart & Hull at 616-827-7019 to discuss your cosmetic dentistry options.

Teeth: What Have They Done For You Lately?

Dental Health And Your Teeth In Rockford MI

Welcome to the Comstock Park area dental blog! Today we are going to look at the secret life of our teeth.

The shape of each tooth gives a clue to what it does. The incisors, or your front teeth, are sharp. They need to be because they are there to cut food and their curvature helps move food inside the mouth.

Behind the incisors, you find the canine teeth. Their roots go far into the jaw bone because they are designed to hold onto food and tear through it.

Premolars, found just behind the canines, are flat on the surface. This allows them to crush your food as you chew. And, finally, in the very back are the molars. They are large and have nice, flat chewing surfaces that help them to grind food down into smaller, more digestible pieces.

We’re Dr. Bruce Stewart and Dr. Eric Hull, local Comstock Park dentists, and we hope you’ve enjoyed learning a little more about the different teeth in your mouth.
If you are in the Grand Rapids, Comstock Park, or Rockford MI area and would like to make a dental health appointment at our practice, Stewart & Hull, please give Dr. Stewart or Dr. Hull a call at 616-827-7019. We can schedule an appointment and tell you about cosmetic dentistry procedures such as teeth whitening or laser dentistry.

If you’ve ever been interested in a smile makeover, come in and we’ll discuss the possibilities. We want all our dental patients including those in the Grand Rapids, Comstock Park and Rockford MI area to have healthy mouths and beautiful smiles. At Stewart & Hull, we offer comprehensive dental services including:

Invisalign — Exciting Changes

Categories: Invisalign

I want to make you aware of some exciting changes with Invisalign, the clear trays (aligners) used to straighten teeth. I’ve been using Invisalign for almost eight years with good success and predictability.

Invisalign has an engineering team and they have redesigned their use of attachments and how they redirect single teeth. Engineers are trained in studying forces, speed, movement and shape. Who would be better suited to study tooth movement? By analyzing tooth shape from millions of case submissions, the engineers can move teeth with greater predictability. This is done in the laboratory and translated to the software.

Invisalign formerly offered two levels of straightening: Full Case, 11 or more aligners, and Express Case, 10 or fewer aligners. They have added a new level, Express 5, 5 or fewer aligners for minor tooth correction. Aligners are changed every two weeks, so an Express 5 Case would be complete in ten weeks.

Invisalign was a good product, but now it is an even better product. If you have been considering straightening your teeth, come in for a consultation and see what Invisalign can do for you.
