Porcelain Veneers or Invisalign? Santa Clarita Dentist Explains the Difference

Patients who are interested in teeth straightening solutions may believe that orthodontics is the only way to achieve a new look. Fortunately, there are many different options available to patients to consider, and Santa Clarita dentist, Dr. Sarkis Aznavour, is here to assist patients in determining the best possible solution for their smile. Individuals who are interested in a smile makeover may be introduced to two common solutions including Invisalign orthodontics and porcelain veneers.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment that utilizes transparent aligner trays to gently reposition the teeth. They can be used for patients with mild to moderate malocclusion. Dr. Sarkis Aznavour also sees many patients use Invisalign to address minor issues such as spaces between teeth or unsightly gaps near the front of the smile. In situations such as this, patients may be advised to think about the benefits of using porcelain veneers instead.

What are porcelain veneers?

Porcelain veneers are thin ceramic facings the dentist can bond onto the front of a natural tooth to cover imperfections. These imperfections may include:

  • Breakage
  • Misalignment
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Permanent staining

When patients are faced with deciding between Invisalign and porcelain veneers, it is encouraged that patients schedule a consultation visit with Dr. Sarkis Aznavour and his dedicated team of professionals who can assess the smile and determine the patient’s specific and unique dental needs. If patients do not want to straighten their entire dental arch but want to address one or two areas of cosmetic concerns, porcelain veneers may be the fastest, more conservative, and more affordable solution for an individual. Deciding which one is best is achieved by talking with our staff.
