If you are not happy with your smile then one of the best ways that you can get it fixed is through aesthetic dentistry which is quite literally the focus on the aesthetic appearance of your teeth. We should point out at this stage that this is no substitute for making sure that your teeth are healthy and the reality is that they should both look and be as healthy as they possibly can be. Now there are a number of options which you can find to turn that crooked smile into a beautiful one, and today we are going to have a look at some of the most common ways in which people do it.
The company Invisalign have really taken a novel approach to helping people straighten up their smiles and they are being used by people all over the world. This simple formula will see mouthguard that is fitted, which you will wear for a certain period of time, usually 12 to 18 months. During this time the mouthpiece will be changed and tweaked to fit with the contour of your changing teeth, and they will then help to push your teeth in the right direction. Invisalign is a great option which is quickly becoming one of the most commonly used.
Many claim that brackets are unsightly but at the end of the day they do the job that they are supposed to do. Contrary to what you may believe brackets are in fact able to be used on people of all ages, not just young teenagers. Whilst this is the case, when used on adults who have fully formed teeth, the results may just take a little bit longer than when used on a teenager. Brackets will last for anywhere between 1 and 2 years and they have a very high rate of success. Whilst some may disprove of the aesthetic of brackets, nobody can complain about the results that they are able to deliver, and they are one of the lowest cost options out there.
And finally, for those of you who aren’t worried how much you will have to invest and who want a relatively quick solution, the veneer seems to be the perfect option. A veneer is a permanent approach to fixing your teeth and it involves shaving down your existing teeth and, like the name says, placing a veneer on top of where your old teeth were. This will give you the perfect smile, the perfect color of smile and a robust and long lasting option for your teeth. Veneers are usually made from composite materials or more commonly from porcelain, and that means that they are very strong, very durable and they will not stain. This is the more expensive option and a set of veneers could cost you anywhere from $10,000 to $100,000 depending on how many you want and where you are looking to have them done.
These are the most popular options for improving your smile.
