When Veneers Are Best
Less Movement Required
Veneers can straighten teeth, but they can’t do as much straightening as Invisalign. Veneers are best when you need only slightly straighter teeth. There are some cases where it’s easier to achieve straightening with veneers than with Invisalign, such as rotated teeth. However, in general, if you need more straightening, then Invisalign would be a better choice.
Veneers Can Reshape Teeth
Veneers are the best choice if you want to reshape your teeth while straightening them. Veneers can easily fix chips and cracks. In addition, veneers can make your teeth larger if you think they’re too small. Perhaps you have retained baby teeth, or perhaps you’ve worn your teeth down. In any case, veneers can make them larger again. Veneers can also help if you don’t like the appearance of peg laterals or other poorly formed teeth.
In addition, veneers can whiten your teeth beyond the limits of traditional teeth whitening. If whitening your teeth doesn’t make them bright enough, veneers can help you get the bright smile you desire.
Veneers Are Fast
Veneers don’t take nearly as long as Invisalign to achieve their goals. Veneers take just two visits after the initial consultation to achieve results. This means that you can have your new smile in less than a month from the time you commit to the procedure. If you want a new beautiful smile in time for a special occasion, veneers are often your best choice.
