Porcelain Veneers for Crooked Teeth in Vernon Hills
Porcelain veneer treatment is popular among adults, and for good reason. There is no other way to handle multiple aesthetic concerns with just one form of treatment. Using customized shells of high quality porcelain material, Dr. Kumar can change the size, color, and shape of a tooth, or several teeth, for a total smile makeover in just a few visits. Suitable for the correction of several cosmetic problems, the question remains whether veneers should be considered a treatment for crooked teeth. In our Vernon Hills dental practice, we consider several factors when planning cosmetic treatment.
Is misalignment a problem to be treated with veneers or braces?
In situations in which crooked teeth affect the appearance of a person’s smile, porcelain veneers may be considered for quick, effective correction. Using precise design skills, Dr. Kumar can “build up” a turned tooth, making it appear straight. Porcelain veneers are designed based on a model of the patient’s teeth after they have been slightly modified to accommodate their new covers. In the dental lab, a master ceramist creates the new and improved tooth structure based on specifications from the dentist. Out of beautiful porcelain, a veneer is carved to the exact size, shape, and color for a natural, beautiful result. Although this may be a quick and effective way to improve the look of the smile, consideration is also given to bite and to the longevity of any cosmetic treatment.
Many people find that their smile can be corrected with either braces or veneers. The determining factor may come down to timing. With veneers, the smile is enhanced within just a few weeks. Braces, however, gradually move teeth to their desired positions. Furthermore, many people simply do not find the idea of wearing braces appealing. At SmileMoreToday, we offer not only exquisite porcelain veneers, but also several options for orthodontic treatment. With his extensive background and training, Dr. Kumar discusses available treatments and helps patients choose what will best suit their long-term needs.
