									Invisalign or Porcelain Veneers: What’s the Best Option?

If you’re an adult in need of a straighter smile, you may be wondering what your
options are. The fact of the matter is that you don’t have to settle for traditional
metal braces, and there is more than one way to straighten your smile. With new
innovations in cosmetic dentistry, you can straighten your smile with either
porcelain veneers, Invisalign, or Lumineers. Therefore, allow the cosmetic
dentists at The Houston Dentists to show you exactly what these procedures are,
and help you determine exactly which one is right for you.

Invisalign: Invisible Braces for Adults

If you’re an adult in need of a straighter smile, Invisalign clear braces may be the
perfect option for you. Invisalign braces are comprised of a series of invisible
aligning trays that gently realign your smile over a period of time.

There are a variety of benefits to Invisalign braces. These benefits include:

      Invisibility. These braces are completely clear, so no one will ever notice
       that you are straightening your smile.
      Removability. These aligners are completely removable, making eating a
       breeze. You’ll never have to sacrifice your favorite foods, nor will you have to
       worry about messy meals.
      Comfort. Invisalign aligners never cut your gums or cause mouth abrasions
       the way traditional metal braces do.

Porcelain Veneers and Lumineers

If you have mildly crooked teeth but a variety of smile problems, veneers or
Lumineers may be a great option.

Veneers and Lumineers are thin porcelain coverings that go over the fronts of your
teeth. They take as little as 2 to 3 office visits to apply and they last between 10 and
20 years.

They can fix the following smile problems:

      Gapped teeth
      Chipped teeth
      Stained teeth
      Misshapen teeth

The major difference between Lumineers and veneers is the fact that Lumineers do
not require any sort of tooth drilling or alterations in the same way that veneers do.
