Ultra Conservative Dentistry
By Norman J. Pomerance, DDS, Denton County LIVING WELL Magazine
Ultra conservative dentistry is a philosophy of treatment by which the patient receives the best possible treatment outcome while utilizing the least invasive techniques available.
Combining various types of treatment which keep teeth intact yet result in a very cosmetic smile is the goal. These treatments include but are not limited to, adult orthodontics, whitening, bonding, veneers, implants and recontouring of the natural teeth to create a more pleasing smile.
Using this seemingly simple principle of conservative dental procedures will, when completed together, achieve an outcome that will be both appealing and cost effective.
Usually after a patient straightens their teeth, the result is so dramatic they smile more and are then interested in whitening. These two procedures are the least invasive way to create a beautiful new smile.
A new and rapid method to straighten teeth is called Six Month Smiles®. Straight teeth are possible in six to nine months in most instances and the treatment is more comfortable and cosmetic than traditional braces.
Mainly for adults who have always wanted braces, but for one reason or another never had them or for those who would like their teeth as straight as they were after childhood orthodontics, Six Month Smiles® is the answer to removing all the obstacles standing in the way of your new smile.
Straighter teeth enhance your confidence, smile and appearance in general. A beautiful smile is an attribute and is often the first thing noticed!
Six Month Smiles® is professionally applied braces that are cosmetic and rapidly move teeth into a more pleasing arrangement. The brackets bonded onto the teeth are clear and the wire actually moving the teeth is white. It is the precise placement of the brackets and the material the wire is made of that moves the teeth efficiently into their new, straighter position.
By itself or in combination with other advanced treatments, Six Month Smiles® is an investment in yourself and your health.
