Porcelain Veneers for Crooked Teeth By Kenneth Malament on May 02, 2021

porcelain veneers applicationMost people agree that a straight smile is more appealing than one that is blemished by crooked teeth. However, when minor misalignment issues are present, few people want to invest the time into orthodontic treatment. And the discomfort associated with bulky metal braces can be even less appealing.

Fortunately, porcelain veneers improve the aesthetics of the smile without a single day of braces treatment. Porcelain veneers conceal crooked teeth to give the appearance of a straight and perfectly aligned smile. The dentists at Boston Prosthodontics Dental Group can let individuals in the Boston, MA, area know if they are ideal candidates for these cosmetic restorations.

Are Porcelain Veneers Right For Me?

Porcelain veneers help hide crooked teeth, along with other cosmetic blemishes, to give patients a straighter and brighter smile, all in a matter of weeks. For many, this sounds like a cosmetic dentistry treatment that is too good to be true, which often leaves our Boston patients wondering if porcelain veneers could really be right for them.

Porcelain veneers can conceal a wide range of imperfections, including discoloration, stains, and minor structural damage, so they are suitable for many people who are dissatisfied with the appearance of their smile. However, when it comes to orthodontic issues and porcelain veneers, there is one small catch.

Porcelain veneers do nothing to correct or repair malocclusion problems, instead they cover them up to create a more uniform looking smile. This limits porcelain veneers candidacy to individuals with minor malocclusion problems, or those that do not compromise oral health or functions. Cosmetic orthodontic issues that may be addressed with porcelain veneers include:

  • Crooked or twisted teeth
  • Misshaped or unevenly sized teeth
  • Gapped teeth
  • Overcrowded teeth

Porcelain Veneers Treatment 

Porcelain veneers treatment can be completed in a matter of weeks, in comparison to the many months that orthodontic treatment can take. Porcelain veneers treatment takes place over the span of two dental visits. At the initial visit our dentists design a set of veneers that best addresses each of our patient’s unique needs. We also prepare the teeth for veneers placement by removing a thin layer of tooth enamel, which ensures the restorations will sit flush with adjacent teeth. 

During the second visit to our Boston dental practice, which is scheduled when the veneers are complete, the restorations are bonded to the facial surface of the teeth. Once in place, porcelain veneers conceal flaws and give patients the straight smile they desire. The fast results provided by porcelain veneers is why many refer to this technique as instant orthodontics. 

Benefits of Instant Orthodontics

For those who are ideal candidates, instant orthodontics offers several benefits that sets it apart from traditional braces. Porcelain veneers:

  • Are completely comfortable
  • Blend in seamlessly with adjacent teeth
  • Improve tooth color and conceal other aesthetic imperfections
  • Are resistant to stains
  • Can be cared for just like the natural teeth
  • Provide immediate results
