Invisalign vs. Veneers

Are you considering what options you have to improve your smile’s appearance? If you’re tired of hiding your teeth in photos or are too embarrassed to go up and meet new people, a smile makeover with our highly experienced and revered dentist in Arcadia is a great place to start.

Every smile makeover revolves around the teeth that people see first – the ones at the front of your smile. For the best-looking smile, should you straighten your teeth with clear braces like Invisalign, or just cover them up with veneers?

Advantages to Invisalign

Invisalign is a non-invasive way to enjoy straighter teeth that are easier to clean and care for. As such, they enhance your overall oral health (not just the teeth at the front of your smile.) You can even whiten your teeth during the process, giving you straighter, brighter smiles without conventional cosmetic dental treatments.

Unfortunately, Invisalign won’t change anything about the shape of your teeth. You may need a bit of bonding to touch up any minor flaws.

Advantages to Veneers

Dental veneers require two to three visits with your dentist in Arcadia. They use thin shells of porcelain that mask the imperfections on your teeth behind them. You can alter everything from the size and shape of your teeth to their color. Even gapped or crooked teeth can often be made to look straight. That’s why some people refer to veneers as “instant braces.”

If a veneer ever breaks, it will need to be replaced. Take extra care of them to avoid unwanted fractures.
