For many people, choosing a cosmetic treatment can seem like a daunting task; there are so many options out there! That’s why our Cheney cosmetic dentists are here to help you get all of the information you need to move forward confidently. In today’s article, we’re going to be discussing how Invisalign, specifically, compare to various cosmetic options.
As you may already know, Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment system that, over a period of months, moves your natural teeth into better alignment. Many people choose Invisalign because it is comfortable, discreet (the aligners that move your teeth are made of clear plastic resin), and hygienic.
The main way that Invisalign differs from traditional braces is that Invisalign uses aligners to move teeth, rather than metal brackets and wires. Invisalign is completely metal-free. Consequently, patients report that Invisalign is more comfortable than traditional braces, as well as more attractive.
Obviously, one way to improve dental misalignment is to actually move your natural teeth. However, there is another way! Our Cheney cosmetic dentists offer treatment options that cover your existing teeth in order to give you smile a more perfected and seamless appearance.
One of these treatments is dental bonding. Using composite resin, our dentist can build up natural teeth to close gaps between teeth, and to make crooked teeth appear straighter. Dental bonding takes only one appointment to complete, and it is significantly less expensive than orthodontic treatment.
Another option for covering problematic teeth is to use porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers are individually crafted, and personalized to suit the patient’s aesthetic and structural needs. Veneers also deliver full results in a short period of time: often just two or three appointments.
