Misalignment is a problem that affects many people. There are adults who have never had the opportunity to straighten their teeth and those who may have felt as though it was better to live with a few crooked teeth than to sport a “tin grin” for a year or more. Orthodontic treatment can, in fact, put a damper on an adult’s image. In the area of cosmetic dentistry, however, braces may not be a necessary component to care. With the Esquire Dental Centres team, adults in and near Scarborough may find the alternatives very attractive.
Invisalign More Than Clear Braces
Clear braces have been an option considered by many people. This treatment still consists of brackets and wires, which means that patients must also live with disadvantages such as potential discomfort or food stuck in teeth. Invisalign is more than clear braces, and is also more than cosmetic treatment. The fabrication of a series of aligner trays is undertaken with precision and attention to detail. The planning process allows us to visualize the predicted results and share them with you before your treatment begins.
The clear advantage to Invisalign aligner treatment is the absence of brackets and wires. Not only does this set the stage for an unobstructed view of the smile throughout its transformation, but it allows the patient to feel more comfortable and confident for the months that teeth are being moved. The fact that Invisalign aligners are removable is also very attractive, especially for adults who may want to go au naturel for important meetings or events.
The Mask Of Porcelain Veneers
The most recognized way to deal with misalignment is orthodontic treatment of some sort. What many people don’t know is that there are some problems that can be easily hidden with a beautiful, well crafted porcelain veneer. Veneers are covers designed to the perfect shape, size, and color to achieve a predicted outcome. At Esquire Dental Centres, patients benefit from the use of porcelain material. This choice looks and functions most like tooth enamel, looking so natural that no one can tell a tooth has been covered.
The veneer process for misalignment can be useful when a tooth or a few teeth are slightly turned. The placement of a porcelain veneer can “build up” the tooth in the right places so that it appears straight. This treatment option is not suited for severe misalignment due to the additional concerns related to bite function.
