What’s More Affordable: Braces or Porcelain Veneers?
I have some overlapping teeth with some spaces between them and am wondering if I should get porcelain veneers or braces. Which is more affordable?
If you’re talking about which is more affordable, braces or porcelain veneers, the answer will hands down be braces. Which you get, will mostly be a matter of what your goals are. If you’re wanting to simply straighten your teeth, braces are it. If you’re looking to change more about your smile than their position, then porcelain veneers can do that. They change the shape size and color of your teeth.
I won’t lie to you. Veneers are pricey. It’s what you go for if you want a complete smile makeover. You’ll need a minimum of six, more if you have a wide smile.
Braces Options For Adults
Most adults that want braces aren’t thrilled with the idea of a mouth full of metal. Not only are they unsightly, they’re uncomfortable. Fortunately, there are great options these days. Most patients prefer Invisalign to traditional braces. They’re more comfortable. Plus, they’re invisible even at a conversational distance.
There’s another benefit to Invisalign too. If you’re also wanting whiter teeth, the aligners are able to double as whitening trays allowing you to do both procedures simultaneously. The only thing you’ll need from your dentist is the whitening gel.
