Braces Or Veneers Are Best For Your Case? Read On to Learn More
You might not have as severe a case of malocclusion or oral health ailments as some of our patients, but maybe you still harbor some insecurity. In that case, which is the best cosmetic orthodontic treatment for you: braces, Invisalign aligners, or dental veneers?
In the debate between braces and Invisalign treatment, clear aligners are arguably the best cosmetic choice during treatment, as they are far more discreet and far less noticeable than traditional braces or fixed orthodontic appliances. But typically, both types of orthodontic treatments yield similar, successful end results.
Dental veneers, on the other hand, do not move the teeth, though they can create a straighter, symmetrical, more aesthetically pleasing smile appearance. Veneers are also good when someone has malformed, broken, or discolored teeth. This means that they can’t replace orthodontic treatment but can be good for cosmetic treatment.
So, if you’re only dealing with minor cosmetic issues and teeth wear, which tool is better: orthodontic treatment, veneers, or both? Read on for an overview of important comparisons and questions to ask when thinking about this issue.
