Where to get snap on smile? Where to get teeth whitening options? How about cosmetic bonding or braces? These are just a few of the various dental care options available by most dental offices today. Besides the routine preventative care such as fillings and implants, one now has a whole array of cosmetic choices in achieving the look and smile desired.
Snap ons/porcelain veneers and cosmetic bonding are options for those with discolored teeth, teeth that are worn down, chipped, broken, misaligned/irregularly shaped or with gaps between the teeth. In addition, cosmetic bonding can also be used to protect roots of teeth that have been exposed due to receding gums.
Between snap ons and cosmetic bonding, cosmetic bonding is the less expensive and easiest option. But again, depending on your specific dental needs, your dentist will recommend the option that is best suited for you.
As for braces, did you know that braces do not not always mean having to wear metals bands? Such is the case with the Invisalign system that uses aligner trays made of a smooth comfortable invisible plastic that fit over your teeth. Instead of the traditional metal band method of periodic tightening of wires and/or combination use of head gear and plastic bands, the Invisalign system’s aligner trays gradually and gently shifts your teeth into the correct position determined by your dentist/orthodontist. Every two weeks you use new aligner trays until your treatment is completed.
As with any of the various dental options, it is a matter of deciding which best meets the needs for each individual, as well as the cost. For example, how much do braces cost with medicaid? Depending on the State, the cost can be minimal to none. As always it is best to check first prior to making a decision.
