Treatment Options

Over the years, I noticed that many of my adult patients were interested in having straight teeth, but did not want to go through two years of wearing braces.

Accelerated orthodontic treatment aims to enhance the aesthetic appearance of your smile by quickly and efficiently straightening the most visible teeth. The major advantage of this option is the shortened duration of treatment, (usually an astounding 6 months or less!) The compromised treatment does not aim to correct any underlying malocclusion or functional problems.

The teeth are aligned with the use of ceramic brackets (white). They are very strong and generally do not stain. Adults like to choose ceramic because they “blend in” with the teeth and are less noticeable than metal. These are the type of braces actor Tom Cruise had.

Dr Lyons uses Tip-Edge plus ceramic brackets, manufactured by TP Orthodontics which are very translucent. They are very strong and do not stain. Tooth Whitening is also included as an added bonus with accelerated treatment.

iBraces are placed behind your teeth so no one will know that you are wearing braces unless you tell them. These unique braces are created using state-of-the-art technology and are 100% customized to the shape of your teeth and to your dental situation. iBraces have the unique prescription that Dr Lyons creates for you built-in to ensure you get the results that you want. With iBraces you get efficient, effective tooth movement and great aesthetics.

iBrackets™ are 100% customized and molded to fit to each specific tooth shape. Not only are they hidden from view, but they are designed according to your unique tooth anatomy to be as comfortable as possible.

The arch wires (iWires™) which are fabricated using innovative robotic technologies, are made to precisely move your teeth as efficiently as possible according to Dr Lyons’ prescription.

This unique combination of customized brackets and wires is the ONLY 100% customized braces system available on the market today.

Invisalign is a method of straightening teeth using a series of clear, almost invisible, removable Aligners. Invisalign combines Dr Lyons’ clinical treatment plan with proprietary 3-D, computer-generated software to make sets of unique, custom-made Aligners that move teeth in very precise increments.

Invisalign aligners are great for people who do not have severe problems. The “braces” consist of strong plastic trays that are fabricated especially for you. They are indeed invisible. If your bite is not severely off and your teeth are not severely crooked, then Invisalign would be a good choice. You would be able to get your teeth straightened without anyone seeing that you are wearing “braces”! This appeals to many adults, especially people who wore traditional braces as children and then need more treatment later in life. However, if your bite is very bad, if you need extractions or other appliances, then Invisalign will not work for you; you will need to wear traditional braces.

The treatment trays are computer-fabricated by Align Technologies, the company that makes Invisalign.

Dr Lyons has received special training from Align Technologies.

While braces are the ideal way to straighten your teeth, some people don’t want to wear any of the alternatives listed here. LUMINEERS® BY CERINATE® are porcelain veneers that offer the painless way to a permanently whiter and perfectly aligned smile. Dr Lyons can apply these contact lens-thin “smile shapers” to teeth without any grinding or shaving, transforming teeth into a naturally beautiful smile that looks perfect for every individual.

LUMINEERS can even be placed over existing crown or bridgework without having to replace them. LUMINEERS are contact lens-thin and are placed over existing teeth without having to remove painful tooth structure (unlike traditional veneers.)

LUMINEERS is the painless, permanent cosmetic solution for stained, chipped, discolored or misaligned teeth.

LUMINEERS can only be made from patented Cerinate porcelain unavailable anywhere other than the Cerinate Smile Design Studio. In just 2 visits, you can have a custom-made smile that is clinically proven to last over 20 years - and it is completely reversible since your natural tooth structure is still intact! Get your perfect smile today.

In-office bleaching (also called chairside or one hour bleaching) requires one or more visits to your dentist. Dr Lyons will apply a bleaching agent to your teeth, and uses a special light to quicken the work of the agent. Your gums will be protected from the bleach by either a gel or a rubber shield. Each visit can last anywhere from half an hour to an hour. At-home bleaching comes in a gel form along with a mouthguard. Place the gel into the mouthguard and use as directed. The duration and frequency of the treatment varies. Dr Lyons recommends overnight use for a shorter period of time.

Teeth whitening is a safe and popular form of cosmetic dentistry. According to the American Dental Association, 96% of users report a whiter smile. dents blanches
