Depending on the type of imperfection you’re dealing with, we’ll recommend either traditional or no-prep veneers.
No-prep veneers consist of the composite ceramic material called IPS e.max®. Unlike traditional veneers, they don’t require the removal of a layer of your enamel to accommodate them. However, because they’re more translucent than traditional veneers, they aren’t ideal for every issue.
Regardless of which type of veneers you receive, you can expect them to last for 7-15 years. You care for your veneers the way you care for your other teeth. Both types of veneers also tend to stay whiter longer than natural enamel.
If you have severely crooked teeth, our team at Swinney Dental may recommend a treatment that actually moves your teeth into better alignment. Fortunately, you don’t have to go through the hassle of metal braces.
Invisalign can gradually move your teeth through the use of clear trays worn over your teeth. You remove the devices when you eat, brush, and floss. And because they’re clear, Invisalign is virtually unnoticeable to others.
Once your Invisalign treatment is complete, you may still want to consider veneers if you have misshapen or stained teeth. Our team can help determine your best treatment plan based on your aesthetic goals and your oral health.
