Why Are Porcelain Veneers better than Braces?

One of the common questions which are being asked at the dentistry clinic is whether they should choose braces or veneers. Although both of them give better results the treatment options are different. Read the given as we have mentioned why choosing porcelain veneers is a better choice.

Some people are facing the problem of crooked teeth for which they choose the option of metal braces to get their teeth straight. If you do not want to get your appearance changed or do not want to wear braces for 18 months to 3 years then there are other options available which the patients can opt for. It means patients looking to get immediate results should opt for porcelain veneers. Here are some of the reasons for selecting this option:

Get your teeth straight fastly

Your dentist will let you know in detail about the time needed for different treatment options. When you wear fixed orthodontics there are changes need to be made which include brushing also. For a long time, you won’t be able to eat a certain type of food as they need to be worn for 22 hours a day.

But with porcelain veneers, you can achieve a great smile within 2 weeks. Once the consultation and impressions are taken, the fabrication process will be started. Once they are made you visit the dental clinic to get them fixed which will cover the crooked teeth or gaps. The option of veneers is best for patients who have a minor misalignment. If the problem is severe then treatment will be made accordingly.

Veneers are comfortable to wear

Wearing braces and clear aligners are going to be slightly uncomfortable. Even in some cases, these options are not at all a choice because the patient is allergic to the metal and plastic material. As long as you are able to remove the tooth enamel (minimal amount and the process is painless) to get them placed for covering the imperfections. Additionally, to place the veneers no force is needed so there is no discomfort.

No need of wearing retainers

Once the braces come off or you are done wearing the last pair of aligners then there is still a need to wear a retainer. You need to wear it 24*7 and until the doctor determines that the teeth are shifted fully. This is done so that relapses are prevented in future. But with the porcelain veneers, there is no such problem of wearing retainers as it will automatically help you keep your smile bright and beautiful.

Consult the doctor!

Veneers are the perfect choice to get your teeth straight quickly and cover the imperfections. Schedule an appointment with the doctor to get the right kind of treatment plan for you.
