Dickson Clear Aligners

The Clear Aligners system is pretty straightforward. You will wear each aligner for about two weeks, and should only be removed to eat, drink, brush, or floss. Over time your teeth will move into their ideal position as you replace the aligners with the next in the series.

We will check to make sure treatment is progressing as planned during your visits to Accent Smile Center. Not changing aligners as scheduled or skipping your appointments can quickly undo any progress that’s been made. The most important element to success with your Dickson Clear Aligners is changing your aligners on time and wearing them as directed. Your trays will be custom-designed to fit your unique dental needs. They will need to be changed frequently in order to keep up with the shifting of your teeth as they begin to straighten.

The average treatment time is generally between 8 and 18 months. This can vary widely from case to case. Treatment time depends significantly on patient compliance. It’s important to remember that every patient will respond to orthodontic treatment differently. Clear Aligners work in a slightly different and less invasive way than braces to straighten the teeth. This means it can be hard to say with certainty how long a patient will need to wear them before seeing results.

We estimate treatment time based on how well you follow the recommended guidelines. Any small deviation from this can add extra time to the overall process Clear Aligners can only work if patients stick to the program. This means wearing aligners for at least 20-22 hours every single day, throughout the course of treatment.

Teeth Whitening

Laser whitening is often chosen when typical office whitening or at-home teeth whitening treatments don’t provide enough of a difference to the shade of your teeth.

We offer laser whitening that brings about phenomenal results for your smile. If you want an exceptionally beautiful smile, Dr. Gatgens and his dental team are committed to helping you achieve that goal through cosmetic dentistry like Dickson teeth whitening and other procedures designed to beautify your smile and boost your confidence.

Laser whitening is quick and in just about an hour it can bring about much more significant results versus over-the-counter whitening methods. Laser whitening offered here at our Dickson, TN dental office has many advantages. It can reduce tooth sensitivity often associated with in-office teeth whitening caused by the teeth drying out since the laser energy is gentle on the teeth. Also, the results can be seen immediately after the in-office procedure.

Porcelain Veneers

A Dickson porcelain veneer is a thin shell of ceramic that looks like natural enamel and is made to hide a chipped or otherwise damaged tooth. The materials used to create porcelain veneers are durable and stronger than real teeth. They can even reflect light in the same manner as unaltered teeth do so that a cosmetically enhanced tooth is indistinguishable from the rest. Dr. Gatgans can permanently place porcelain veneers to revitalize your smile.
