Invisalign® is a revolutionary orthodontic system that uses clear plastic aligner trays instead of metal brackets and wires. Patients wear these aligner trays at all times save from when eating, drinking, or cleaning their teeth.
An Invisalign® tray is worn for two weeks and then discarded. The next Invisalign® tray in the sequence is worn for two weeks, and so on. Over the course of several months, the teeth gradually improve alignment just like natural braces.
Invisalign has been used by over 5 million people to straighten their teeth and improve the appearance of their smile. Invisalign, an alternative to traditional bracket braces, uses clear trays to help correct the teeth.
There are several key benefits to Invisalign® over other orthodontic treatments:
The results of Invisalign® are comparable to the results of traditional orthodontic treatment with braces. Patients will have straight smiles that look great, improving aesthetics as well as overall dental health and wellness.
Invisalign is not appropriate for everyone. Adult patients are better suited to the treatment than children. Children who do not yet have all of their permanent teeth are not good candidates for the procedure.
People who are good candidates for Invisalign should expect to be fully committed to the treatment and able to follow the dentist’s recommendations. This includes changing the aligners as directed and visiting the dentist every six weeks or so for check-ups. A patient should be aware of what to expect during treatment, including how many in-office visits are required to begin Invisalign and how long the aligners must be worn.
It is also important to note that Invisalign cannot treat every dental problem. The aligners can help to straighten teeth, close gaps between teeth, and correct crowding. The treatment can also be used to correct certain types of bites, such as overbite and underbite. People with severe malocclusion or teeth that are severely misaligned, on the other hand, may not be candidates.
Porcelain veneers are thin shells of dental ceramic that are used to conceal cosmetic flaws affecting the teeth. Porcelain veneers are extremely versatile, and can be used by dentists to correct the following flaws:
There are several key benefits to porcelain veneers:
Porcelain veneers provide several advantages to patients who choose to have them, including the following:
Porcelain veneers have many advantages, but they are not without flaws. The following are some disadvantages of veneers:
Thanks to porcelain veneers, patients can experience a total smile makeover with just a little bit of treatment – in 2 to 4 booking. The aesthetic outcomes can be dramatic, turning a flawed smile into one that’s straight, bright, white, and pristine.
A person who has healthy or not significantly compromised teeth and wants to improve the appearance of their smile is an ideal candidate for veneers. Veneers are recommended for adults or people who are fully mature. Because the veneer is attached to the front of the tooth, the tooth must be full-sized prior to placement.
Invisalign® is a better option than porcelain veneers when a patient suffers from malocclusion that impacts dental health. In such cases, orthodontic care rather than cosmetic treatment would be a better option to consider.
Porcelain veneers are a better option than Invisalign® when a patient suffers from purely cosmetic flaws that impact smile aesthetics. In these cases, orthodontic care is not necessary and a purely cosmetic approach is viable.
The most important consideration when deciding between veneers and Invisalign is your primary goal. Both treatments can improve the appearance of your smile, but Invisalign focuses on correcting your bite and tooth alignment. Meanwhile, veneers address cosmetic issues such as tooth colour, shape, texture, and size.
