Is It Possible To Have Braces On Top Of Veneers?

If you’ve had veneers fitted but have uneven teeth, you may be wondering whether braces are an option. Here’s what you need to know about it.

Key takeaways:

– If your veneers are in good condition, brackets can be usually attached without damaging the surface.

– In some cases, the veneers will have to be polished after fitting the braces.

– For most orthodontists, the treatment of choice is Invisalign (removable plastic aligners).

Book a consultation with your dentist to get expert advice on whether these two treatments can be used together in your case.

Why Making Your Oral Health a Priority Could Save Your Life!

Your oral health is more important than you realise:

– Sub-optimal oral health can put you at a higher risk of serious diseases such as heart disease.

– If you are being treated with certain medications, they can reduce your saliva; this leads to dry mouth, which can result in more tooth infections

– Make an appointment to see your dentist now to check your teeth and mouth are in tip top condition.

“If you are on medication that can cause less saliva, it’s best to brush more and also discuss the issue with your dentist.”
