Nationally recognized orthodontist specialist Dr. Jacqueline Fulop-Goodling, D.M.D., P.C. has been featured in WebMD where she discusses at-home teeth straightening.

Dr. Jacquie Smiles as she is known to her patients became a Spokesperson for Invisalign Teen treatment which was featured on the Tyra Bank’s show. She now practices orthodontics in her Midtown Manhattan office and two other locations in Englewood Cliffs, NJ, and Monroe, NY.

WebMD asked Dr. Jacqueline Fulop-Goodling about the safety of DIY teeth straightening instead of going to an orthodontist for professional treatment.

According to Dr. Fulop-Goodling, “There are no safe at-home teeth straightening procedures.”

These “do-it-yourself” methods have caused so much harm to people’s teeth that the American Dental Association issued a policy in 2017 educating patients against the potential damage of unsupervised at-home teeth-straightening.

“The intention behind do-it-yourself teeth straightening is to save money, but it often ends up in disaster,” Fulop-Goodling says.

The American Association of Orthodontists has also noted that DIY teeth-straightening methods can create serious new dental problems involving not only your teeth, but your gums and bones.

Teeth Whitening                                       

Let’s face it, almost everyone was indulging in foods and drinks that stain teeth during the quarantine. If you were drinking coffee, tea, red wine, or smoking, your teeth are stained and in need of whitening treatment. 

Zoom! Is one of the most popular choices for getting rid of quarantine stains. This innovative teeth whitening system simultaneously brightens all of your teeth and produces long-lasting results. It also whitens dental restorations such as crowns and veneers. 

How Zoom! Works

A gel form of hydrogen peroxide at the perfect level is used during this in-demand teeth whitening treatment. A special light activates the gel and removes stains from the enamel without causing damage. 

Benefits 

  • It’s done in the safety of a dentist office
  • Produces long-lasting results
  • Brightens your smile including dental restorations
  • Doesn’t damage tooth enamel
  • Boosts self-esteem

Risks 

  • Minor tingling sensations
  • Temporary discomfort 

Bonding

Bonding fixes gapped, cracked, chipped, and teeth that are unusually shaped by bonding or attaching resin to the surface of the natural tooth. Bonding is also an alternative choice for fillings.

How Bonding Works

The dentist chooses a shade of resin that matches the natural tooth then applies it to the surface of the tooth using a special light. Once the resin hardens the appearance of the tooth gets enhanced and takes on a natural appearance. 

Benefits 

  • Fast process
  • Impressive results
  • Fixes damaged teeth 
  • Creates a natural look
  • It’s safe to use on your natural teeth

Risks 

  • Sometimes the resin separates from the tooth after long term use
  • The procedure might need to be repeated in the future

Crowns

Crowns are dental caps that cover damaged teeth and produce a natural appearance. Damage caused by teeth grinding, age, injuries, and decay is popular reasons crowns are used to enhance the natural look of a tooth. 

How Crowns Work

Resin, porcelain, or metal materials are used to create dental crowns. During this procedure, the dentist reshapes the natural tooth to ensure the crown fits comfortably and securely. 

Benefits 

  • Restores the look of teeth
  • Protects fragile teeth
  • Secures a dental bridge
  • Protects a tooth that had root canal treatment

Risks

  • Some people are allergic to the material used to make the crown
  • The crown can become loose
  • An infection can develop if not cared for properly

Veneers

Veneers enhance the appearance of misshapen, chipped, broken, and discolored teeth by placing porcelain or resin shells over the front of the tooth to create a symmetrical smile.  

How Veneers Work

Veneers are custom shaped by the dentist to ensure it’s the right size for your mouth. Before the veneers are placed on the individual tooth, the natural tooth is shaved down to ensure proper placement and a secure attachment. 

Benefits 

Veneers permanently fix the following dental issues: 

  • Gapped teeth
  • Misshapen teeth
  • Broken teeth
  • Chipped teeth
  • Dark yellow or permanently stained teeth 

Risks 

  • The procedure is irreversible
  • They can become damaged or chipped

Implants

A dental implant is a substitution for a natural tooth. It has a natural appearance and allows you to chew your food just like a natural tooth. Implants are also an excellent alternative for bridges and dentures. 

How Dental Implants Work

This procedure is conducted in stages over a period that is determined by the dentist. The first portion of the treatment involves a screw being placed into the jaw bone. Over time the jaw bone heals and holds the post in place. Once the treatment reaches this stage the dentist places a crown on the post. The result is a functional and natural-looking tooth. 

Benefits 

  • Reliable and durable
  • Helps improve your ability to speak properly
  • Feels comfortable and natural
  • Improves your ability to chew and eat your favorite foods
  • Lasts a long time

Risks 

  • Hyperplasia can develop
  • The gums can begin to recede
  • Loss of bone near the implant area
  • An infection can develop
  • Nerves can become damaged or injured
