There are many approaches to correct crooked teeth. Some take years, and some take just a few visits to Parsons Smile Center. You can straighten your teeth fast with veneers.
Our patient, whose teeth are pictured in this article, wanted to straighten his teeth but thought he’d have to have braces to get the desired results. When Dr. Salha mentioned that veneers, also called laminates, would be an excellent option, the patient expressed his worry that his teeth would look big like Chiclets! After a good laugh, Dr. Salha showed him photographs of other patients who had chosen veneers to achieve a straight and beautiful smile.
You Can Straighten Teeth Fast With Veneers
While braces and Invisalign are truly wonderful options for some people, they aren’t viable options for others. Why? Time, effort, and appearance.
Some people simply don’t have the time or the inclination to wear braces or commit to Invisalign. Porcelain veneers are a great option if you need to fix your crooked teeth in weeks rather than years.
Effort. Traditional bracket-and-wire braces and Invisalign take some effort on your part. You must pay special attention when brushing and flossing with conventional braces and visit the dentist’s office often. Invisalign is far more discreet than traditional braces, and you don’t have to visit the dentist as often, but you have to commit to wearing the aligners for about 22 hours per day when not eating or cleaning your teeth. Difficulty wearing the aligners for the prescribed amount of time may prolong treatment time by months or even years. For some, the effort involved is just too much of a commitment.
Finally, there is your appearance to consider. Most adults would choose almost any other option than traditional bracket-and-wire braces. Although conventional braces are smaller and far more attractive than they were in the past, most adults don’t want to revisit their adolescence and prefer to straighten their teeth in a less visible way. Veneers are a quick, easy, non-orthodontic option for getting the beautiful smile you’ve always wanted.
Other Benefits Of Veneers
In addition to straightening your teeth, laminates can fix a wider array of cosmetic flaws, such as the color, gaps, and shape of your teeth. Not only are your teeth straightened with veneers, but the individual teeth also become more attractive. For example, if your canine teeth are pointy, veneers can make them a more regular shape. Are your teeth a dull white from years of drinking coffee? Veneers can give you the color you want. Anything from a shade lighter than your natural teeth to a bright Hollywood white is possible. Chipped teeth are a widespread issue as we age. Veneers can correct chips and gaps as well.
There are so many benefits to having your cosmetic imperfections fixed with veneers. They’re quick, easy, look terrific, and are easy to care for – just brush and floss as usual.
