A new smile is something a surprising number of people hanker for, as cosmetic dental treatment is becoming increasingly common. A smile makeover can consist of a number of different elements, or it may include just one single treatment. Most people will have their teeth whitened as part of a smile makeover, and other popular treatments include veneers, crowns, bridges and even dental implants. However orthodontic treatment can also be extremely important, and can form part of a more conservative smile makeover treatment plan.
Opting for braces in Kent could mean you require fewer cosmetic dental treatments to perfect your smile. For instance having straighter teeth is likely to mean you require fewer veneers, if any. This is worth considering, as most veneers will require at least a small amount of tooth material to be removed, and you need to remember that once this material has been removed you will always need to have dental veneers to cover up these teeth. Dental veneers in Kent usually last up to 10 years, or possibly even longer depending on how well you look after them. However after this stage they are likely to need replacing.
Orthodontic Treatment Can Improve Your Oral Health
Using an orthodontics treatment such as Invisalign braces might mean your smile makeover takes a little longer to complete, but it could be more beneficial for your health. Invisalign is an extremely popular orthodontic system that can be used to treat a comprehensive number of occlusal problems. You can use Invisalign aligners to minimise or close up gaps in between your teeth, or to alleviate problems caused by crowded teeth, making it easier for you to brush and floss your teeth.
Treatment is highly predictable as it is planned stage by stage using computerised technology. This will enable you to see how your newly straightened smile will look. Once you have completed your orthodontic treatment you may still want to have your teeth bleached, and you might find that a few of your teeth would benefit from being veneered. Veneers can be used to alter the size and shape of teeth, something that cannot be corrected through orthodontic treatment. They are also very useful in helping to hide discoloured or heavily stained teeth that cannot easily be whitened.
