Two Options for Crooked Teeth

If your teeth are crooked because they weren’t corrected when you were a child, you have two terrific options. Dr. Mel Braverman works with many adults who are ready to finally get the smile that they’ve dreamed of their entire lives. And luckily, with today’s modern dental technology, it’s easy to get it. You’ll have two options: see an Invisalign dentist, such as Dr. Braverman, or talk to the dentist about getting veneers put on your teeth. Here are some facts about both of these dental procedures.

If You’re in a Hurry

Some people don’t like to wait, and if you’re one of those people who want straight teeth instantly, then you might be a candidate for veneers. Veneers are ideal for people who want to straighten their teeth, but don’t want to wait for braces to do their work. The dentist will file down your natural teeth in order to create a straight line. Next, he’ll attach the paper thin veneers to your teeth, which will give the illusion of a beautiful straight set of teeth. Veneers are designed to last about 10 years, and are more expensive than Invisalign braces, but for those who are in a hurry for the perfect smile, they are a wonderful option (View our photo gallery here).

If You Can Wait

Dr. Braverman is an Invisalign dentist who knows that sometimes good things come to those who wait. Invisalign braces are an excellent option for people who want straight teeth, and are willing to wait for the results. They are worn by adults who don’t want metal braces, and they offer many benefits. For instance, with metal braces, you have to be careful about what you eat because you could damage the braces with the wrong kind of food. But if you see an Invisalign dentist, he will instruct you to simply remove the invisible braces before eating. In addition, there are no rubber bands or sticky metal wires to worry about with Invisalign braces.

Dr. Braverman would be happy to talk to you about which of these procedures would be right for you. If you are ready to get that perfect smile, why not call our offices now and schedule an appointment to explore you options?
