Can Veneers Fix My Crooked Teeth?

Can Veneers Fix My Crooked Teeth?

A smile that reveals crooked teeth can damage your self-confidence. If you’re bothered by your misaligned teeth, you may be a good candidate for veneers. While veneers don’t actually move your teeth, they can create a smile you’re happier about.

Our experienced team of dentists at Swinney Dental in Tyler, Texas, is pleased to offer this cosmetic treatment, including state-of-the-art no-prep veneers to help achieve your desired look.

Read on to learn more about veneers, including ways they might benefit you.

How veneers work

Veneers are thin shells that look just like natural tooth enamel. Made of either a composite or porcelain, they’re bonded to the front of your teeth to enhance your smile. 

While veneers can’t move teeth into better alignment, they can make your teeth appear straighter.

Veneers can also improve your smile by concealing:

Different types of veneers

Depending on the type of imperfection you’re dealing with, we’ll recommend either traditional or no-prep veneers. 

No-prep veneers consist of the composite ceramic material called IPS e.max®. Unlike traditional veneers, they don’t require the removal of a layer of your enamel to accommodate them. However, because they’re more translucent than traditional veneers, they aren’t ideal for every issue.

Regardless of which type of veneers you receive, you can expect them to last for 7-15 years. You care for your veneers the way you care for your other teeth. Both types of veneers also tend to stay whiter longer than natural enamel. 

Other teeth straightening options

If you have severely crooked teeth, our team at Swinney Dental may recommend a treatment that actually moves your teeth into better alignment. Fortunately, you don’t have to go through the hassle of metal braces.

Invisalign can gradually move your teeth through the use of clear trays worn over your teeth. You remove the devices when you eat, brush, and floss. And because they’re clear, Invisalign is virtually unnoticeable to others.

Once your Invisalign treatment is complete, you may still want to consider veneers if you have misshapen or stained teeth. Our team can help determine your best treatment plan based on your aesthetic goals and your oral health.
