Treatment Options for Crooked Teeth
There are multiple treatment options for patients who want to restore the appearance of crooked teeth:
Porcelain veeners are crafted from ultra-thin, high-quality porcelain ceramic. They are color-matched to natural teeth and can blend in perfectly with your smile. This can be a great aesthetic treatment for crooked teeth. In addition, porcelain veneers provide durability, require no special maintenance, are stain-resistant, and look and feel natural.
In order to create a proper bonding surface for the veneers, a small amount of enamel will be removed from the teeth. Dr. White will create dental impressions of your teeth so that the veneers fit comfortably. After the dental veneers are crafted in a lab, they are adhered to teeth.
Tooth bonding uses composite resin material to change the size and shape of teeth. The bonding material also blends in with teeth for a natural look. Tooth bonding is less permanent and a more economical alternative to porcelain veneers, and can be a great option for patients who may not want to commit to veneers.
As with veneers, Dr. White will remove a small portion of the tooth structure to ensure that tooth bonding material adheres to the tooth. The color-matched composite resin will be sculpted onto the tooth, shaped and molded. The resin is set with a special UV light.
