Straight teeth are an important component to a beautiful smile. They convey health and vitality, helping you leave your best impression on others. If you're hesitant to flash your smile due to crooked teeth, Dr. Marzban can help. She offers several cosmetic dentistry solutions to help you achieve the straight, beautiful smile you desire.
The most effective option to straighten your teeth is Invisalign. This alternative to traditional braces uses a series of clear plastic aligners to gradually straighten your teeth over time. You'll wear each aligner for about two weeks before moving along to the next one in the series. Once you've completed your Invisalign treatment, you will be able to enjoy the benefits of a straight, beautiful smile.
Invisalign has become a very popular alternative to braces due to the following benefits provided by the treatment:
- The clear plastic aligners are virtually undetectable by others
- The aligners are removable, allowing you to eat all your favorite foods and maintain optimal levels of oral hygiene
- The plastic aligners have smooth edges that won't cut your lips or gums the way metal braces do
- Your treatment won't require the painful adjustments that occur when you have braces
While Invisalign is the most effective option to straighten your smile, it's not right for everyone. You will need to invest a significant amount of time to complete this orthodontic treatment. If you prefer to achieve a straight, beautiful smile more quickly, you may want to consider porcelain veneers as an alternative.
Porcelain veneers are a versatile cosmetic dentistry restoration that can improve a wide range of smile imperfections by bonding thin shells of dental porcelain to the outer surface of your teeth. They are often referred to as "instant orthodontics" because they can create the appearance of straight teeth in just two visits to Dr. Marzban's Burke, Virginia dental office. However, it's important to understand that porcelain veneers are strictly providing a cosmetic fix to the issue. If you want to achieve the oral health benefits associated with straight teeth, you will need to invest the time in orthodontic treatment.
