Can Porcelain Veneers Fix My Crooked Teeth
Hi, I’m Dr Rajiv Kumar. You can call me “ Andy”. I’ve been here at Pitt St Dental Centre in Sydney CBD for about last 15 years.
Last Tuesday, we had a new patient, Sarah from Walsh Bay, come into my office asking me if Porcelain Veneers could fix her crooked teeth. Her wedding is coming up, and she left it a bit late, and doesn’t have the time for the orthodontic treatment. She was self-conscious about her crooked teeth and wanted to know if porcelain veneers were a good solution for her.
As we talked through her concerns and evaluated her teeth, I realised that this was a topic that a lot of people might be curious about. So, in this video, I want to share with you what I shared with Sarah – whether or not porcelain veneers can fix crooked teeth, and what factors you should consider before getting them.
First things first, let’s talk about what porcelain veneers are. They’re thin shells made of tooth-coloured ceramic material that is placed over the front surface of the teeth. They are custom-made to fit your teeth perfectly and can be used to improve the colour, shape, and size of your teeth.
So, can they fix crooked teeth? Well, it really depends on the severity of your misalignment. Porcelain veneers can be a great option for people with mild to moderate misalignment. They can be used to create the illusion of straighter teeth by covering up the appearance of actual crookedness.
In some cases, veneers can also be used to correct minor misalignments by slightly reshaping the teeth and improving their position. Porcelain veneers However, it’s important to note that porcelain veneers are not a substitute for orthodontic treatment.
If a person has severe misalignment, they may need braces or other orthodontic treatments such as Invisalign to properly align your teeth. Porcelain veneers can be a great complement to orthodontic treatment, since they can be used to improve the appearance of your teeth during or after your orthodontic treatment.
So, in conclusion, porcelain veneers can be a great option for improving the appearance of crooked teeth, but they’re not a substitute for orthodontic treatment. It’s important to consult with your dentist to determine if veneers are right for you and to address any underlying dental issues before getting them.
I hope this gives you a better understanding of whether dental veneers can fix crooked teeth.
