Crooked Teeth With Veneers

At Kensington Dental Care, we understand the impact that crooked teeth can have on your smile and self-confidence. If you’re seeking an orthodontic treatment to improve the appearance of your crooked teeth that would be the gold standard, however veneers can also be an excellent option for misshaped teeth.

Consult Our Expert Cosmetic Dentists

Begin your journey to a straighter smile by scheduling a consultation with our experienced cosmetic dentists. They will carefully assess your teeth and oral health, discuss your concerns and goals, and determine if veneers are the right choice for addressing your crooked and misshapen teeth.

Understanding Veneers

Dental veneers are slim, tailor-made covers made from porcelain or composite resin. These covers are carefully crafted to fit over the front of your teeth, concealing aesthetic flaws, such as crookedness. Veneers offer a transformative solution to straighten crooked teeth and create a more aesthetically pleasing smile.

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are a popular and highly sought-after option due to their natural appearance and durability. These veneers are crafted by a dental technician or ceramist from thin shells of porcelain that mimic the translucency and shine of natural teeth.

Porcelain veneers require customisation to match the colour, shape, and size of your existing teeth, resulting in a seamless and beautiful smile transformation.

Composite Veneers

Composite veneers, also known as direct veneers or resin veneers, are made from a tooth-coloured composite resin material. Unlike porcelain veneers, composite veneers are directly applied and sculpted onto the teeth by the dentist. This process allows for immediate results and requires fewer visits compared to porcelain veneers. Composite veneers are a more affordable option but may be less resistant to staining and not as long-lasting as porcelain veneers.

A Personalised Treatment Plan

During your consultation, our skilled cosmetic dentists will create a customised treatment plan tailored to your specific needs. Factors such as the severity of your misshapen teeth, whether you have severely or slightly crooked teeth, your desired outcome, and your overall dental health will be taken into consideration. We may use X-rays, impressions, and photographs to ensure the fabrication of veneers that fit your teeth flawlessly.

The Preparation and Placement Process

To guarantee optimal fit and results, a minimal amount of tooth enamel from the front surface of your teeth may be gently removed. This creates space for the veneers. Subsequently, impressions of your teeth will be taken and sent to our trusted dental laboratory, where your custom veneers will be meticulously crafted. In the interim, temporary veneers may be placed to provide you with a preview of your new smile.

The Bonding Process

Once your custom veneers are ready, we will schedule an appointment for the bonding process. Our skilled dentists will ensure the fit, appearance, and comfort of the veneers before permanently bonding them to your teeth using a specialised dental adhesive. Any necessary adjustments will be made to ensure a seamless blend with your natural teeth and a harmonious smile.

Advantages of Veneers

Veneers offer numerous benefits to fixing mild to severely crooked teeth. They are almost instant compared to orthodontic treatment (which can take a number of months/years) and provide an immediate transformation, creating the appearance of straighter, more aligned teeth. Veneers are stain-resistant and durable, and with proper care and maintenance, they can provide long-lasting results, enhancing the beauty of your smile for years to come.

Maintenance and Care

To prolong the lifespan of your veneers and maintain their impeccable appearance, as well as protect the teeth underneath, it’s essential to maintain excellent oral hygiene practices. Brush your teeth twice daily with a non-abrasive toothpaste, floss regularly, and attend routine dental check-ups and cleanings. Additionally, avoid habits that can potentially damage your veneers, such as biting ice cubes and hard objects or using your teeth as tools.
