CAN YOU FIX CROOKED TEETH WITH VENEERS

Do you have a few teeth that aren’t quite as straight as you’d like them to be? Are your two front teeth too far apart? If so, it’s possible that you may not need braces to fix these problems; some cosmetic issues of tooth alignment and spacing can be addressed beautifully with dental veneers.
A dental veneer is a porcelain shell about as thin as a fingernail that is placed on the front surface of a tooth. Many people get veneers to improve the color, size and shape of their teeth; this can give them a brighter and more youthful looking smile. But in certain situations, veneers can also be used to close gaps between teeth and make them appear straighter.
Could this work for you? It depends on how far out of alignment your teeth are, and whether the misalignment is affecting your bite. If your teeth and bite are healthy, and the alignment issues are minor, you may not have to physically move the teeth into a better position for a great-looking smile; a covering that makes them look straighter may be enough to solve the problem. This approach is much quicker than orthodontic treatment—and also allows you to improve tooth color, size and shape at the same time.
The process of getting porcelain veneers takes several dental appointments. The first step is for you and your dentist to plan what your new smile will look like. Since beauty is subjective, this decision really requires your input. Dentists have various ways of helping you visualize the final results before you commit to a plan. These include computer simulations, wax models, and even a “trial smile,” where temporary dental bonding is applied to the teeth so that you can actually see how the changes will look in your own mouth.
