How can veneers help crooked teeth?


A beautiful smile is the best business card one can have.

Unfortunately, not everyone is blessed with naturally aligned, straight, bright teeth. This can sometimes pose further dental issues or might make one self-conscious about his/her smile. However, dental care has drastically advanced over the years. It is easier than ever to change slight tooth imperfections to make a smile more aesthetically pleasing and raise someone’s s self-confidence. Dental veneers are an extremely effective solution to cover tooth stains, dark teeth, crooked dentition, or damaged worn teeth.

Porcelain veneers are a great tool for transforming a person’s smile by improving the overall teeth appearance. Different innovative cosmetic dental procedures are available nowadays to help achieving a perfect smile and porcelain veneers are one of these. Porcelain veneers are one of the best ways to straighten someone’s teeth without braces. This is because veneers provide multiple cosmetic benefits and are extremely durable. There are arguably very few treatments in cosmetic dentistry as versatile and transformative as porcelain veneers.

How does a veneer help to fix crooked teeth?

A veneer is a thin layer of tooth-coloured material, usually ceramic, that closely resembles natural teeth and is placed upon a tooth in order to enhance and improve its appearance. There are various dental issues that can be fixed and improved with porcelain veneers and straightening misaligned or crooked teeth is one of them.

Veneers, unlike other orthodontic braces treatments, do not work to straighten your natural teeth. Each porcelain veneer is customised to the tooth they are to be fitted on and is made to address specific dental issues and requirements. They also help change the shape, size and shade of your teeth to your preference.

Although they cannot realign your teeth, dental veneers can cover crooked teeth or crowded teeth and present a bright, straight smile.

What happens during treatment?

Porcelain veneer treatments do require several dental visits. The first is the initial evaluation consultation. The next to prepare your teeth by slightly filing them down. Our restorative dentist will then take an impression of your teeth and prepare the veneers created in a dental laboratory here in London. You will receive a temporary set of veneers until the porcelain veneers are ready. These provisional tooth veneers often act as trying set to allow patient to assess the shape format and colour of the tooth restorations before having the final ones cemented.

Your final appointment will be permanently fitting the veneers onto your teeth.

Porcelain veneers are virtually indistinguishable from your natural teeth and must be properly cared for. To get the best value out of your veneers you must brush and floss regularly, have regular check-ups with your dentist and regular oral hygiene visits.

Anyone can get porcelain veneers after they develop adult teeth. They are a great long-lasting option for someone who wants their smile to look more aesthetically appealing.
