The Cosmetic Dentists at Brookside Dental, Bellevue, WA, use removable orthodontic appliances, called Hawley Applicances, to move a limited number of teeth prior to doing veneers and crowns on anterior teeth. This limited tooth movement method is used to preserve the integrity and strength of the individual teeth by aligning the teeth, so that much less tooth structural material needs to be removed if crowns or porcelain veneers are used for a smile makeover. The limited use of removable orthodontic appliances is usually a more conservative option to veneers and crowns that are done without any orthodontic treatments. In many cases the limited movement of the teeth will be such that no tooth structure will need to be removed and therefore not require any porcelain crowns or veneers. This procedure when needed makes a more beautiful and long lasting smile by preserving the maximum amount of natural tooth structure. Very often, all that is required following limited tooth movement with Hawley Appliances is Seattle Tooth Whitening for a beautiful smile makeover.
