Crooked teeth are a common dental issue. Some people have a mouth full of misaligned or crooked teeth, while others only have a few that aren’t in the right place. Orthodontic treatments have traditionally been used to correct malocclusion issues and straighten the smile. Some patients, however, may be candidates for a more expedient and convenient option. Porcelain veneers in Odessa, FL, can correct crooked teeth, allowing people to get a new smile instantly.
Getting That Stunning Smile
How Are Crooked Teeth Treated by Porcelain Veneers?
Before undergoing the treatment, patients should have a thorough grasp of how porcelain veneers correct crooked teeth. Veneers are not an orthodontic procedure. They have no bearing on tooth positioning, bite, or misalignment. Porcelain veneers are cosmetic restorations that conceal crooked teeth and give a uniform, straight arch appearance.
Porcelain veneers are usually applied over the course of two dental sessions. The teeth are prepared for veneer installation, and the porcelain veneers are designed at the initial session. Our dental staff will then customize the size, shape, and color of the veneers to complement the smile while also blending in with the surrounding teeth. The permanent porcelain veneers are produced using the design plans submitted to a dental laboratory.
Patients return to our office for implantation of their veneers once they have been completed. They are then glued to the front surfaces of the teeth. To complete the bonding procedure, the material is hardened using a dental light.
How Long Do Porcelain Veneers Last?
Veneers made of porcelain are remarkably long-lasting. Patients can expect their veneers to last 10 years or longer if they maintain good oral hygiene. Although porcelain veneers may ultimately wear out or get damaged, they can be simply updated so that patients can continue to benefit from the cosmetic benefits of these dental restorations.
