If some of your front teeth are out of alignment then you’re probably interested in learning more about how to straighten them. There are a couple of ways of doing so, and one is to have some veneers, while the other is to undergo orthodontic treatment. But which is best?
It probably all depends on the degree of misalignment, and is something that your dentist in can advise you about. Six Month Smiles in Bayswater is ideal for minimising gaps in between teeth, and for straightening up teeth that are slightly crooked. Treatment can often be completed in just a few months, and as the braces are fixed in position, they’ll be working to correct your teeth twenty four hours a day. These braces are especially designed to be discreet and easy to wear, and any adjustments during treatment can quickly be made by our dentist in Bayswater. One of the great things about wearing braces is that it can often mean teeth will be moved without requiring any sort of adjustment to the actual tooth structure. This is something you’ll find your dentist is very keen on accomplishing, as no dentist likes to remove healthy tooth material unless the treatment really needs it.
If you really don’t want to wear braces then an alternative option would be to have dental veneers in Bayswater. These do require the removal of a very small amount of tooth material, although sometimes it may not be necessary to remove any tooth structure, depending on the position of the tooth. For example, if the tooth is inverted inwards in the arch, then a dental veneer can be used to bring it out into line, but if a tooth is slightly rotated, then it will probably be necessary to remove some tooth structure to make room for the veneer as otherwise it could end up too bulky and would look false.
Veneers can look fantastic, but once you have them then you’ll always need to maintain and replace them when required. With proper care your veneers could last up to ten years or even longer, but you cannot just have them removed and leave the prepared tooth surface exposed. Once the protective layer of tooth enamel is removed, your teeth do become more susceptible to tooth decay as the dentine layer underneath is much softer.
Using Both Treatments To Help Perfect Your Smile
One option that could help to produce the very best results would be to use both Six Month Smiles in Bayswater with dental veneers. Once your teeth have been straightened, you can correct any small anomalies that might remain, or can cover up any teeth that are misshapen or stained. This will give you a beautifully straight smile whilst ensuring the minimum amount of tooth structure is removed.
Everyone’s mouth is different, and the best way to find out which treatment will be best for you, or if it is even necessary to think about using both treatments in conjunction with each other, is to visit your dentist. They will only recommend Six Month Smiles in Bayswater if they think it will help give you the results you are looking for.
