You might not like the idea of wearing braces because of how they affect your appearance. Maybe you feel like your teeth are not crooked enough to warrant them. If you want to straighten your teeth, but do not wish to use braces, you may be interested in Invisalign. Not everyone is the right fit for this treatment. If your teeth need too much correcting, you may be a poor candidate. However, if your dentist approves you for treatment, you can have them corrected discreetly, and enjoy a straighter smile. In some cases, you could actually have more immediate results by having your teeth covered with porcelain veneers.
Invisalign is designed to have a minimal effect on how you look while you wear them. A sequence of clear plastic oral trays make progressive moves to bring your teeth into alignment over time. In addition to being inconspicuous, Invisalign also makes correction easier by giving you the ability to remove them when necessary. This way, you can eat and clean your teeth without having to work around them. It is important to note that you should wear your inserts as often as possible, so that you do not fall behind on your expected completion date.
As is the case with Invisalign, not every person who wants to use porcelain veneers to straighten their teeth will be a good candidate. Veneers have become a popular cosmetic dental treatment because they can take care of a variety of esthetic dental flaws. By having veneers affixed to your teeth, your smile will appear to consist of straight, attractive teeth.
