Cosmetic Orthodontics, With Dr. Mitch Conditt, Dentist, Fort Worth, Texas

Cosmetic orthodontics is a term used to orthodontically straighten the teeth, which is being done now with a much quicker procedure to benefit the cosmetic part and not necessarily the functional part, says Dr. Mitch Conditt, a cosmetic and restorative dentist in Fort Worth, Texas.

Cosmetic orthodontics can be as simple as trays or aligners, which are clear plastic trays that fit over the teeth to slowly shape the teeth into the alignment one is looking for, Dr. Conditt says.

Dr. Mitch CondittThe newest procedure is called the six month smile, which is a tooth-colored braces that goes over the teeth to put the teeth where one wants and worn for six months.  Because it's for cosmetic reasons, when it gets to the point where one feels it looks good, they're finished.

Depending on the result one is looking for, Dr. Conditt recommends visiting with a dentist to look at the options.  There are some things the clear aligners can't accomplish or take longer to do so, so if one is comfortable with tooth-colored braces for a short time, Dr. Conditt says they can accomplish almost anything.  There are situations, however, where the clear aligners can accomplish a lot in a short time.

The six month smile was created for older adults who may have worn braces as a child and their teeth may have shifted or they just have a few things to correct.  Dr. Conditt says there is "no age limit on when you want to look good."

Lumineers and Veneers, With Dr. Mitch Conditt, Dentist, Fort Worth, Texas

Lumineers are a brand of porcelain that uses the technique of minimal prep or no prep on the tooth, according to Dr. Mitch Conditt, a dentist in Fort Worth, Texas.  An ultra-thin veneer is bonded to the tooth so the final result may leave the tooth just a bit thicker but the process does not remove any tooth structure.  Dr. Conditt says that a lot of the different porcelains on the market are made just for this type of procedure.

Dr. Mitch CondittWhen placing traditional veneers, which are about 6/10mm in thickness, some of the tooth structure is removed so the final result is the same than before the veneers are placed, Dr. Conditt says.  Both minimal prep and traditional veneers are about the same and it depends on what you want and what you're the best candidate for.  You may be a good candidate for minimal prep veneers but traditional veneers may be something you prefer and in talking with your dentist, you can decide which way you want to go.

The advantages to minimal prep veneers are that there is little or no removing of tooth structure and there is no wearing of temporaries, but Dr. Conditt says there are advantages to both traditional veneeers and minimal prep veneers.

Dental Veneers, With Dr. Mitch Conditt, Dentist, Fort Worth, Texas

There are many reasons patients seek out cosmetic dentistry and looking and feeling better tops the list.  The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry did a survey years ago that showed that people with a beautiful smile not only felt and looked better, but had more confidence and had a better chance of getting a job, where they were often paid more, according to Dr. Mitch Conditt, a dentist in Fort Worth, Texas.

Dr. Mitch CondittAside from the aesthetic reasons for cosmetic dentistry, Dr. Conditt says there are many functional reasons, such as improving a bit, improving periodontal situations and improving overall health.

When patients come into Dr. Conditt's office for veneers, they receive a smile evaluation, where he looks at their teeth and the patient conveys what they like and don't like about their smile.  Dr. Conditt utilizes a computer program to help design a smile that includes the changes the patient wants to make.  That information is then sent out to a master technician, who will make a wax model out of the smile he's created.  This allows Dr. Conditt and the patient to look at it and be sure it's everything the patient is expecting.

At the next appointment, Dr. Conditt will reshape or sculpt the teeth and place temporaries, or trial veneers, on the teeth to make sure it's the look the patient wants.  At this stage, changes can still be made.  After a shade is picked, a few weeks later, the trial veneers are removed and Dr. Conditt will bond in porcelain veneers and "watch the smile come to life."

Longevity of veneers is a factor of many things, including teeth grinding or clenching and oral hygiene.  Dr. Conditt goes over all of these things with this patients to maintain their beautiful new smiles.

Signs & Symptoms of TMJ Disorders, With Dr. Mitch Conditt, Dentist, Ft. Worth, Texas

There are a lot of different signs and symptoms of TMJ, says Dr. Mitch Conditt, a dentist in Ft. Worth, Texas.  Missing teeth, a bad bite, a bad occlusion, a jaw shifting to the right or left when opening, cracking in the joint, popping sounds, tingling in the hands, headaches and pain in the jaw or face are just some of the signs of TMJ.  Often, Dr. Conditt says this condition is over or under diagnosed.

Dr. Mitch CondittThe treatment of TMJ depends on the symptoms and severity of the problem.  It can be treated by wearing a splint at night, an adjustment can be made to your teeth to even out your bite, or all the way to jaw surgery or comprehensive orthodontics.

The important thing, Dr. Conditt says is to diagnose and treat the problem as soon as possible, which allows one to stay with a more conservative treatment.  Untreated TMJ can be completely dibilitating with some of Dr. Conditt's patients living on pain medication.  In severe cases, people find it hard to hold down a job or drive a car. 

Dr. Conditt highly recommends seeing a dentist and talking about any problems that you may have with TMJ and have it treated as soon as possible.
