Five Reasons to Get Porcelain Veneers for Crooked Teeth
Porcelain veneers can address a wide range of cosmetic concerns, but did you know they can also help you achieve a straighter smile? In just two office visits, porcelain veneers can align your crooked teeth for a straight, dazzling smile.
Our dental practice serving Wichita, and West Wichita, KS, offers porcelain veneers for crooked teeth. Join Dr. Byron J. Nordhus and our team as we discuss the top five reasons why you might choose porcelain veneers to correct crooked teeth.
1. The Quickest Way to Straighten Crooked Smiles
One of the great benefits of porcelain veneers is that they are relatively fast when compared to other orthodontic treatments. Invisalign® and metal braces, for example, can take anywhere from six months to two years to achieve the same cosmetic results, depending on the severity of the misalignment.
Porcelain veneer treatment, on the hand, can be as fast as two to four weeks, with only a few visits to the dentist. This will depend on the amount of veneers needed and the time it takes for our partner dental lab to create them.
2. Customizable to Your Smile
Along with producing quick results, porcelain veneer treatment is also highly customizable. With accurate photos of your smile and impressions of your teeth, our doctors will design your veneers to appear as natural as possible.
The color, size, and shape are calculated and custom-designed specifically to your dental anatomy. When done right, porcelain veneers are nearly indistinguishable from natural teeth.
3. Veneers Give Your Teeth a Whiter Smile
Not only does porcelain veneer treatment correct cosmetic issues from crooked teeth, it can also brighten your smile. Your dentist may combine whitening methods for surrounding teeth so the porcelain veneer can blend in with your enhanced smile.
Think of this as an added benefit to getting porcelain veneers rather than undergoing lengthy orthodontic treatment.
4. You Might Find Yourself Smiling More
One of the great motivations for what we do at Nordhus Dentistry is seeing our patients smile. If you have ever felt self-conscious about your smile, as many Americans do, porcelain veneers can help alleviate this feeling.
Boost your self-confidence with straighter, whiter teeth. Find a new swagger in your step as you stop worrying about gaps crooked teeth. You may find yourself laughing and conversing more easily around friends and family.
5. They Last a Long Time
Porcelain veneers are durable, with results outlasting other materials such as composite resin. Porcelain veneers can last 10 to 20 years with proper care. Once they are placed, be sure to brush and floss regularly, and to see your dentist twice a year for checkups.
When Should Patients Consider Orthodontics Instead?
Porcelain veneers are highly effective at treating the cosmetic flaws caused by crooked teeth. Unlike braces or Invisalign, however, they cannot actually change tooth alignment.
For those with severe tooth misalignment, orthodontic treatment is a better option.
