A Bit About Braces
Why Do I Need Treatment?
What Are the Treatments Like?
So How Do I Choose?
It really depends on your goal, dental problems, and financial situation. Orthodontics resolves any issues of crooked teeth, moves the teeth into alignment so they don’t gap or crowd and improves the function of your bite. Orthodontia also improves the appearance of your smile, although that isn’t its primary purpose. Orthodontic treatment does not affect stains or discoloration. Veneers can improve the appearance of your teeth by making them look straighter. Also covering up stains, but they don’t affect function.
It’s difficult to compare the costs because of the different treatment systems for orthodontic treatment and other issues such as whether you choose to have a veneer placed on part or all of your teeth. Again, remember, if you need to improve the function of your mouth, bite and teeth, a veneer can’t achieve your goal. Have a frank discussion with your orthodontist so you can be sure you understand all of the risks, benefits, and costs involved.
You can improve your smile and appearance. You can also improve the function of your mouth and prevent problems later in life. Please contact us for questions or to schedule an appointment.
