Why Invisalign Is a Popular Option for Correcting Cosmetic Dentistry? Dr. Peter Rumack, DDS on 23 Feb 2015
The ultimate goal of cosmetic dentistry is a more radiant smile, achieved through minor or complex procedures. The required results could be anything from whiter to properly aligned teeth. Advancements in technology have made cosmetic dentistry more affordable and reliable, leaving no excuse whatsoever for dull or crooked smile.
Nevertheless, when going for cosmetic dentistry, a number of options may be availed to achieve the same result. The patient, with the help of a dentist, will choose the procedure. When it comes to correcting crowded or misaligned teeth, Invisalign and braces are two available options.
Invisalign is a popular option to complement cosmetic dentistry procedures such as cosmetic veneers or crowns.
Why is Invisalign more popular?
Most people don’t want cosmetic dentistry options that interfere with their social lives or other daily activities. Since Invisalign is completely clear and customized for every patient’s teeth, it’s more comfortable and less noticeable.
Besides its comfort and transparency, Invisalign is also quite effective. While other options such as orthodontic braces are available as well, they are visible and aren’t as comfortable.
Invisalign corrects cosmetic dentistry procedures such as veneers and crowns by first gradually aligning teeth in a painless and reliable way. Once teeth are properly aligned, other dental procedures such as teeth whitening, porcelain veneers and others can be performed.
In addition, hygiene is very important for dental health. Invisalign has gained popularity because it can be easily removed, cleaned reinserted. This also allows easy and proper oral hygiene. Compared with wire braces, Invisalign allows much easier tooth brushing and flossing.
How does Invisalign complement cosmetic dentistry?
Whether one is wearing yellow, cracked, or completely worn out teeth, the end result of cosmetic dentistry should be a more beautiful and fully functional dental formula. Going for teeth whitening alone when teeth are misaligned only partly improves your smile. At the same time, using veneers or crowns without properly aligning teeth means a crooked smile and compromised dental functions.
It’s for this reason that Invisalign has become popular. Invisalign provides the initial steps towards having beautiful and functional teeth.
