A healthy smile doesn’t always look like a healthy smile. From discoloration to alignment issues, problems with the appearance of your teeth can make it seem to some people that you haven’t been as diligent with your oral care as you should. And while there’s only so much you can do at home to improve the appearance of your smile, there’s a lot more your dentist can do to help you straighten and brighten your smile.
It’s one of the biggest changes a person can make in their life, yet one that the public doesn’t have to know about. Invisalign invisible aligners can straighten teeth fast, and they’re invisible – so most people won’t notice that you’re wearing aligners to straighten your teeth.
Unlike conventional metal braces, you can take off your invisible aligners anytime you want to. It’s convenient for eating and drinking, because it doesn’t restrict what you can consume. You simply clean your teeth and aligner trays after eating and drinking anything other than pure water. However, you’ll need to wear your trays for at least 22 hours every day in order to keep your treatment on course.
If you want a permanent white or want to permanently cover up mild issues with the shape or alignment of your teeth, porcelain veneers offer a proven solution for doing both. Veneers are thin sheets of porcelain that are bonded to the visible surfaces of teeth. The result: teeth look perfectly white and straight.
Don’t want to commit to veneers? In-office teeth whitening can help your natural teeth look more radiant.
Two of the top benefits of whitening your teeth at the dentist’s office instead of at home: (A) you get professional results and (B) whitening can make cavities worse, but your dentist can spot them and fix them before whitening treatment.
