What Is Cosmetic Dentistry And Is It Something You Need?

There are many conditions that call for orthodontics or Invisalign. Things like crooked teeth, excessive overbites and unaesthetic smiles would greatly improve with this type of treatment. Straightening teeth is also an excellent starting point for other aesthetic treatments such as veneers or cosmetic bonding. The question is: what would work best, Invisalign or orthodontics?

There is no one definitive answer to this question, rather dependent on a case by case basis. The answer is more case-by-case dependent rather than a a definitive one. Things like lifestyle , the complexity of the condition we are trying to treat, patient preference and age play a big role in making the decision. Orthodontics is excellent for severe crowding cases, or cases that require more precise movements. Invisalign, meanwhile, works best for aesthetically driven individuals or adults that do not wish to wear traditional braces.

So, what if I don’t wish to wear braces but my case is better off completed with traditional orthodontics and not Invisalign? The good news is, it can be done ! Invisalign may take longer if we decide to go that route, but it’s not impossible. Also, there are currently transparent or glass braces that are offered as a more aesthetic alternative to traditional orthodontics in Burlington. Ask our team at blossom Smiles dental in Burlington about your orthodontic options and they’d be happy to discuss them!

So how do other factors come in play when making the case for or against Invisalign or traditional orthodontics? At our Burlington office we discuss all the factors thoroughly during the orthodontic consultation. Let’s take lifestyle. If the patient is socially active and doesn’t want to be seen with active treatment of any sort, then perhaps Invisalign would be a better option for its seamless appearance. Similarly, if the patient is too active socially and keeps avoiding to place their aligners , then Invisalign may not be the right choice because it requires compliance.

What about age? At our dental office in Burlington, we often hear patients saying how old they are and that they cannot do braces any longer . This is a myth and that’s good news! Teeth will never stop shifting throughout life, therefore a controlled amount of shifting in the right direction via Invisalign or traditional orthodontics can certainly be done.

There is no limit to the possibilities and the changes that can be achieved either by orthodontics or Invisalign. Our team at Blossom smiles Dental is very knowledgeable and will always provide and make available the best recommendations that work for specifically for you !
