Years ago, smile makeovers involved multiple dental treatments over a period of several months. That's no longer the case, thanks to porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers are ultra thin shells made of translucent porcelain that can be bonded to your teeth for cosmetic purposes. Extremely versatile and durable, porcelain veneers are an excellent option whether you want a total smile makeover or need to cover a chipped tooth, mask a cracked tooth, or close gaps between your teeth. They require little to no prepping and can often be applied in just one dental visit!
Cosmetic Dental Bonding
Removable braces aren't for everyone. They are most effective for mild to moderate orthodontic problems. That's because the aligners only move teeth horizontally and won't be much help if your teeth turn in or out or are vertically challenged. Overcrowded teeth, widely spaced teeth or a severe malocclusion (bad bite) are better left to traditional dental braces, which provide for more control of teeth movement.
Removable braces also require a lot of motivation. After all, they only work when you wear them. Dental aligners must be worn around the clock, minus time off for eating, drinking, brushing and flossing. That means you have to remember to put them back on after you take them off. If you wear them less than required, your teeth won't move as quickly as planned. The result may be a longer course of treatment.
