Whitening can also be a great finishing touch to a complete smile makeover.
Patients living with crooked or misaligned teeth may be able to straighten their teeth with discretion by using Invisalign. Instead of metal brackets and wires, Invisalign utilizes clear plastic aligners to apply gentle pressure and move your teeth. Aligners can easily be removed for brushing and eating, however they should be worn at least 22 hours per day to achieve the desired result in a timely manner. Most Invisalign cases can be completed in 12-18 months and require fewer visits to your dentist than traditional braces.
Veneers are a thin layer of porcelain that is designed to fit over your tooth and repair a number of dental issues such as:
- Small fractures or chips
- Slight misalignment
- Gaps or spacing between teeth
- Misshapen teeth
- Staining or discoloration
- Excessive wear
- Size discrepancies
Veneers can repair one or two teeth, however they're best utilized to enhance an entire smile. They're durable, easy to care for, and stain resistant, which means you won't need to worry about whitening your teeth. Veneers can typically enhance your smile in two appointments over the course of a couple of weeks.
Our doctors can determine what kind of treatment procedure will best suit your needs during an examination and consultation. Your plan may even include multiple treatments that could be phased out to better fit into your schedule and budget. Give us a call today to learn more about your options for improving your smile!
