Are you an adult with crooked or gapped front teeth? Perhaps you had braces as a child but abandoned wearing your retainer earlier than you were supposed to, causing your teeth to migrate back to their original, misaligned position. If the thought of going back to metal brackets and bands as an adult makes you cringe, we’ve got good news for you. There is a leading solution in cosmetic dentistry that may help you achieve the straight and beautiful smile you deserve, without dealing with the hassle, discomfort and expense of orthodontics.
Porcelain veneers are known as one of the most versatile treatments in cosmetic dentistry. They involve placing wafer-thin shells of porcelain on the front surfaces of your front teeth. In other words, they cover up your imperfections so others never see anything less than a perfect smile. While you may know veneers as the solution for teeth that are stained, chipped or uneven, you’ll be happy to know that porcelain veneers can also be used to address crooked front teeth or teeth that are too widely spaced.
Not everyone qualifies for veneers as “instant orthodontics.” More severe orthodontic concerns or those that involve your bite alignment can’t be solved with veneers. Remember that veneers aren’t actually moving your teeth into ideal position. Rather, they are covering up the misalignment underneath.
If you do qualify for veneers as a smile straightening option, you can benefit from the following:
- Results in two short office visits
- Painless procedure
- Permanent solution
- Easier care and maintenance than braces
- Whiter and better sized teeth
