Teeth that are badly stained, shaped, or crooked may be improved with veneers placed on the surface of the affected teeth. Veneers are thin pieces of porcelain or plastic cemented over the front of your teeth to change their color or shape. Veneers are used on teeth with uneven surfaces or are chipped, discolored, oddly shaped, unevenly spaced, or crooked. Little or no anesthesia is needed. Veneers have a longer life expectancy and color stability than bonding; they are highly resistant to permanent staining from coffee, tea, or even cigarette smoking.
Veneers are usually made by a dental lab technician working from a model provided by your dentist. They are usually irreversible because it’s necessary to remove a small amount of enamel from your teeth to accommodate the shell. Porcelain veneers can mask undesirable defects, such as teeth stained by tetracycline or injury. They are ideal for masking discolored fillings in front teeth. Patients with gaps between their front teeth or teeth that are chipped or worn may consider porcelain veneers.
Invisalign’s invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners will give you the beautiful straight teeth you’ve always wanted. Best of all, no one can tell you’re wearing them. Invisalign is great for adults and teenagers. It’s an invisible way to straighten your teeth without braces as Invisalign uses a series of clear, removable aligners to straighten your teeth without metal wires or brackets. This technology has been proven effective in clinical research and in orthodontic practices nationwide. You wear each set of aligners for about two weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss.
As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move little by little, week by week, until they have straightened to the their final position. You’ll visit us about once every six weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned. Total treatment time averages 9 to 15 months, and the average number of aligners during treatment is between 18 and 30, but both will vary from case to case.
