Is Invisalign for You? | Tyngsboro Dentist

Through the advances of cosmetic dentistry Dr. James Yankowskas is proud to offer Invisalign. Invisalign is the invisible way to straighten teeth using a series of custom-made, nearly undetectable aligners. Whether your teeth are crowded, too far apart or have shifted, Invisalign may be right for you.

Upon an initial examination, Dr. Yankowskas will decide if Invisalign is right for you. We will then write a treatment plan and take an impression of your teeth. Thanks to the latest advances in 3-D computer technology, Invisalign carefully translates the dentist’s instructions into a series of precisely customized aligners. The aligners will move your teeth gradually week by week until you achieve the smile you have always desired.

An Invisalign treatment consists of a series of nearly invisible, removable aligners that you change every two weeks for the next set of aligners. Each aligner is individually manufactured for your teeth, and your teeth only. As you replace each aligner, your teeth will move – little by little, week by week – until they have straightened to the final position prescribed by Dr. Yankowskas.

Dr. Yankowskas will show you a virtual treatment plan generated by Align Technology’s unique ClinCheck® software shows the series of movements your teeth will go through over the course of the treatment. This allows you to see upfront what your teeth are expected to look like at the end of the treatment. From the results of the ClinCheck software, your custom-made, clear aligners are produced especially for you.

If you’re ready for a smile that transforms your appearance, Invisalign is your answer. Although there are many choices out there, no other treatment works as comfortably as Invisalign.

Invisalign is the best way to transform your smile without interfering with your day-to-day life.

Dental Crowns | Tyngsboro Dentist

A dental crown is a dental restoration that is used to replace an old filling or broken tooth to improve the function of your teeth.

Dental crowns are the solution to enhancing and improving your oral hygiene. If you are suffering for cracked or chipped teeth, there is a very high possibility that you need to receive dental crowns.

Two main signals that indicate an individual needs a dental crown:

  • Cracks in the teeth are main indicators that one needs a dental crown. Deep cracks in teeth allow for plaque and bacteria to build up inside the tooth which can lead to infection and permanent tooth loss.
  • Chipped tooth- Chips are a major sign of weak and decayed teeth that should be examine immediately. If the chip was not caused by some kind of accident, the chip is most likely due to some damage that can only be fixed with a dental crown.

A Dental Crown is a cap placed over a tooth to restore its strength and appearance. Dental Crowns have several uses such as to protect a weak or broken tooth. Also, Dental Crowns are used to cover a large filling or help support a dental bridge.

Ten advantages of restorative Dental Crowns:

    • Natural Looking – Porcelain and composite Dental Crowns have the look and feel of natural teeth.
    • Durable – Last up to fifteen years depending on their care.
    • Stain Resistant – Made from porcelain
    • Cosmetic – Improve the look of broken, cracked or discolored teeth
    • Non-slipping – Dental Crowns are cemented or anchored in place
    • Protection – Dental Crowns protect the tooth from further decay
