ARE VENEERS BETTER THAN BRACES?
There is no option that is “better” than another. However, one may be better suited for a patient based on their specific desires, their budget, and the time in which they want to achieve their results. For example, a patient who wants to address a space between their front teeth without having to deal with braces may opt for the placement of porcelain veneers, which can achieve the results in just a couple of weeks. Alternatively, if patients have other issues they want to address such as poor alignment of the dental arch or bite alignment issues, they may opt to move forward with braces to fix all these issues at once. This is also beneficial if patients want to take the time they need to achieve their results and have the funds to do so. Additionally, some patients may want to ask about the use of composite resin bonding to disguise imperfections such as spaces between the teeth, as this can be done in just one visit. All these options can be discussed with patients when they visit our practice and speak with Dr. Shefali Tuli about the solutions they can choose from to achieve the smile of their dreams!
WHAT IS THE PROCESS OF OBTAINING VENEERS?
To learn more about veneers, patients are advised to schedule a consultation appointment at Bayley Dental with Dr. Shefali Tuli for an initial evaluation. This is a great time to discuss the options available for treatment of concerns such as spaced teeth. Once patients decide they want veneers, our professionals prepare the teeth by removing a thin portion of enamel from the front. Then, impressions are taken. These impressions are then sent to a dental laboratory where the final veneers are made. The dentist provides information regarding the final shape, size, and color of the veneers to ensure seamless integration once bonded in place. Within just a few weeks, patients return to the practice to have their veneers placed to cover the gap between the teeth and leave with a brand-new smile! Many patients love how long their veneers last with proper care and maintenance.
ARE BRACES AVAILABLE WITH DR. SHEFALI TULI?
Yes! Instead of traditional braces, however, our team of professionals at Bayley Dental proudly offers Invisalign. Invisalign is a type of orthodontic treatment that realigns the teeth, but with plastic aligner trays instead of metal brackets and wires. This achieves the same results but without the noticeable metal covering the smile during treatment. Invisalign is discreet and easy to comply with, making it the best choice for teenagers and adults.
