New Smile Imaging Simulations

Dr. Joseph Juracka, how will I look with a new smile?

How will I look if I just whiten my teeth? Nice!

How will I look after Clear Correct braces? Great!

How will I look with a complete smile makeover? Wow!

What if I do a combo of veneers on the top and whitening on the bottom? No problem!

Itʼs that amazing and itʼs FREE to anyone who visits our office, even if youʼre not yet a patient.

Snap-on Smile:

Thinking about a new smile and need more than a digital simulation to be sure? No problem, get a Snap-On Smile made in the style you want and try it out first. After you see just how great you look and feel, youʼll be back to start treatment. A Snap On-Smile is sometimes what it takes to gain the needed confidence in your decision to change your smile to the one you always wanted.

Big Wedding Day coming up? Maybe you or a loved one has a smile that will forever detract from the photos and memories of that special day. Snap-On Smile to the rescue. In less than 3 weeks, we can have the whole wedding party smiling with Snap-On Smiles, if youʼd like, and itʼs totally reversible.

Job Interview? Is your smile and embarrassment holding you back from getting hired or that big promotion? Again, Snap-On Smile to the rescue. The Catch-22 of a better you has now been solved. Come back later and weʼll finish things up after you land that position.

Canʼt afford final treatment now? Not to worry, weʼll do damage control dentistry now and fit you with a Snap-On Smile for the time being. It wonʼt last forever but believe it or not, we will warranty it for one full year and up to three if youʼd like. When you are able to proceed with your treatment, weʼll be there for you.

No more flippers or temporary partials! If youʼve had one, the good news is youʼll never have another one thanks to Snap-On Smiles. When the body needs time to grow around implants or bone grafts of extraction sites, this device can slide right over the surrounding teeth, bridge the space with a tooth and promote excellent healing.

If I had not been at the lecture and training on this myself, Iʼd have said this is the most ridiculous thing DenMat™ ever devised. Well, I have to say this thin resin glove of teeth that just snap on over your existing teeth is simply amazing! Just 2 visits, no shots, no drilling, and you get to pick the style and shade of your new smile, too. Itʼs remarkable just how good it looks and how strong it is. Again, itʼs not intended as a permanent solution, but serves as a great short term solution for several situations. Is Snap-On Smiles right for you?

Clear Correct:

Dr. Joseph Juracka and our dental team are pleased to provide ClearCorrect orthodontic treatments to both new and existing patients of Smiles for Life Dental Care. If you have crowded, gapped, or misaligned teeth you may be able to achieve a healthy, beautiful smile using this non-invasive, aesthetic straightening option.

For patients who have seen or heard about the Invisalign® clear aligner system, ClearCorrect is just as effective and works in a similar fashion to straighten your teeth. However, ClearCorrect aligners are fabricated solely in the United States and are generally available at a lower cost to you.

Traditional orthodontic treatments often include braces, with unattractive metal brackets and bulky silver wires. However, ClearCorrect is a clear, removable aligner that is worn over the teeth for at least 22 hours each day. They can be removed to allow you to eat, brush, and floss normally during your orthodontic treatment. ClearCorrect is a comfortable, convenient, and easy to use solution for straightening your teeth.

ClearCorrect provides other substantial health benefits in addition to straightening teeth. Teeth that are crowded, gapped, or misaligned can be more difficult to keep properly cleaned and flossed. Over time, this can lead to a higher rate of tooth decay. Crowded and misaligned teeth are also more prone to issues like cracking and wearing over time due to improper occlusion (bite). Straightening your teeth with ClearCorrect can protect against all of these issues. Additionally, misaligned teeth are more likely to develop periodontal (gum) issues. ClearCorrect can help keep gums firm around the teeth, protecting against bacterial infections that can lead to periodontal disease.

The ClearCorrect system is easy and convenient to use. First, you will have a consultation with Dr. Joseph Juracka. We will review your oral health needs and determine if you are a good candidate for using ClearCorrect to straighten your smile. Next, a 3D model is created of your teeth. This model is used to design the steps of your individualized treatment plan based on your unique straightening needs. With this model, you will be able to see what your teeth will look like after treatment even before the treatment has begun. ClearCorrect aligners are custom-fabricated for your teeth. About every two to four weeks, you will change to a new aligner, slightly straighter than the one before.

By choosing ClearCorrect to straighten your teeth, you can avoid many of the issues commonly associated with traditional braces. ClearCorrect patients are much less prone to experiencing pain, discomfort, or mouth sores than patients with traditional metal braces. ClearCorrect also allows you to remove your aligners to allow proper brushing and flossing, leading to a reduced rate of plaque buildup and tooth decay.

At Smiles for Life Dental Care, we can help you achieve straight teeth and a beautiful, healthy smile with ClearCorrect. For more information or to schedule a consultation, contact our office.
