Today, Dr. Van Wicklen wants to discuss your options when it comes to cosmetic orthodontic treatment.

What is Orthodontic Treatment?

Orthodontic treatment is defined as any dental treatment that corrects irregularities of the teeth or of the relation of the teeth to the surrounding anatomy. To put it simply, orthodontic treatment is used to correct any malocclusions that occur (bad bite, misaligned teeth, etc.).

Cosmetic orthodontic treatment is any dental treatment that corrects the alignment of the teeth while maintaining the appearance of an attractive smile throughout treatment.

What Kind of Cosmetic Orthodontic Treatment does Dr. Van Wicklen Offer?

Dr. Van Wicklen offers Invisalign to his Austin dental patients. Marketed as the clear choice to straighten your smile, Invisalign treatment consists of a series of clear, plastic aligners that gradually shift your teeth to the desired position. Because the aligners are clear in color, your “braces” are virtually invisible, maintaining the appearance of your smile throughout your treatment. To find out if you’re a candidate for Invisalign, Dr. Van Wicklen invites you to his Austin dentist office for a complimentary consultation appointment.

If you’re not a candidate for Invisalign, Dr. Van Wicklen offers other procedures to beautify your smile, including porcelain veneers. To reserve your consultation appointment, call (512) 448-3131 or visit us online at
