Get that Perfect Smile
People are obsessed with good smiles. And there is a good reason for them to be. This is because a plain girl will look extremely pretty with a great smile. However, not all of us are blessed with the genes that give way to pearly white and straight teeth. So what are the most common ways to straighten teeth?
Veneers – The fastest way to straighten teeth and have that captivating smile is through the help of veneers. However, there are two things that must be considered with regards to the use of veneers. The first is the fact that prior to the installation of veneers, healthy teeth must be shaved down. What basically happens is that you’re making yourself highly vulnerable to root canals. At the same time, healthy teeth are very strong, and by opting for veneers you are deliberately damaging strong, healthy teeth. Secondly, veneers do not and will not last forever. No matter how much you try to take care of these veneers, the fact is that they will have to be replaced in the future. This can be very costly in the long run especially if you add up how many times you’re going to replace your veneers.
Comprehensive Orthodontics – Part of the realm of orthodontics is the concept that involves the ideal positioning of teeth so that they all fit together. For this reason, when you go to the orthodontist you are often fitted with metal braces that have to stay on for two to three years. Although this may be a very long time to get your teeth straightened, but it is done in manner wherein teeth are moved to their ideal positions and none of them are damaged in the process. Braces are the best way to go for young children. Adults can have braces too but then the length of time required often discourages them.
Six Month Smile Braces – Adults are the trickiest patients because they want nothing short of perfection which braces give but they want to have straight teeth in the shortest time possible. So how do dentists reach that compromise? With the help of six month smile braces, the dentist will only focus on the movement of the front teeth unlike in traditional braces where all teeth, including the molars, are moved to their ideal positions. The best thing about six month braces is that there is no pain, discomfort and results are seen in no time.
