Invisalign vs. veneers: Best advice from Los Angeles dentist


Best Invisalign Los Angeles
You may have heard of Invisalign. This system of orthodontic aligners has become incredibly popular, with more than 2.6 million patients treated globally. You may have also heard dental veneers referred to as “instant orthodontics.”

About Invisalign

Invisalign became available in the United States in 1999. Initially, it was considered a tool for cosmetic straightening only. The technology has continued to evolve, and today Invisalign can address many complex cases and bite problems, as well as creating beautifully straight smiles.

Patients love Invisalign because:
  • Aligners area transparent. Most people won’t even realize you are wearing them.
  • Aligners are removable, for a clean and fresh mouth.
  • Aligners are smooth and comfortable.
  • A typical treatment plan takes about a year.
  • Results can last a lifetime with conscientious retainer wear.

Veneers 101

Dental veneers are thin layers of lustrous porcelain, expertly crafted to fit over the front surfaces of teeth that show when you smile. They can disguise a multitude of imperfections, including minor misalignment. Porcelain veneers close gaps from uneven spacing, and make teeth look straight and uniform in shape and size. In just two to three visits, you can have a dazzling straight smile. With good hygiene and regular dental checkups, veneers can last many years before needing to be replaced.

Professional guidance

No single dental service is right for every patient who wants a straight smile. Dr. Mungcal takes plenty of time to understand your goals, budget, schedule, lifestyle, and oral health. Then he explains treatment options to help you get a look you’ll love.

I am so glad I came to Downtown Dental. From the moment I walked into the office I was met with a smile and a warm welcome. During my first visit, a dental plan was made for me and they got to work right away. I have never experienced such attention to detail and such excellent customer service at a dental office. During my root canal procedure and fillings everyone was extremely helpful and constantly making sure I was comfortable. Since then, I am encouraging everyone to check out Downtown Dental, they really are amazing.
