What is better for my smile? Invisalign or Veneers?

| December 10, 2008

That question is impossible to answer without a Smile Consultation with a dentist that is experienced with both solutions to a straighter smile, Invisalign Orthodontics and veneers.

Are you going to a Columbus cosmetic dentist that can offer you the best solution for your smile situation? If your dentist can’t do both Invisalign and veneers, how do you know?
Some patients want veneers because the treatment doesn’t take as long as orthodontics.   They want a straighter smile, and they want it now!  Invisalign takes an average of 12 months but some cases take as little as 6 months.  Veneers in our office can be done in some cases, in just one appointment using our Cerec CAD-CAM machine.
But if you have nicely shaped teeth, a better option maybe to use Invisalign and not put a veneer over nicely shaped teeth.  Invisalign uses clear plastic aligners so no one realizes you are straightening your teeth.
It all starts with smile consultation which we offer as a complimentary service to someone that is looking to improve their smile.  Dr. Thompson will take the time to talk with you and understand what you want an explain to you with actual patient photos what is possible for your smile.

In the end the choice is yours!

But if you don’t know all the possible options, how do you make the right decision?  When seeking a smile makeover, make sure the cosmetic dentist you visit can do all sorts of cosmetic treatments to get the right smile for you.  After all, you don’t really want chiclet teeth, do you?
