Can Veneers Give You Straight Teeth?

Veneers are thin shells made from dental-grade porcelain that cover the entire front surface of a person’s teeth. They can correct a range of cosmetic issues to give you a more aesthetically appealing smile, but can they be used to straighten your pearly whites? Read on to learn more about how porcelain veneers work and whether they can make your teeth look straighter and more uniform.

How Do Veneers Work?

Porcelain veneers are custom-made to fit your smile. They require the removal of a small amount of tooth enamel so they can better adhere to the teeth. This will also prevent your pearly whites from looking bulky. Once your dentist has completed this step, they will take impressions of your teeth and send them off to a trusted dental lab so they can create your restorations. You will be fitted with temporary veneers to protect your smile while you wait. This will also help you get used to how your permanent ones will feel in your mouth. Once your dentist has received your permanent veneers back from the dental lab, they’ll have you come back in to attach them to your teeth and complete your smile.

Can Veneers Straighten Teeth?

Veneers can be customized to fit your teeth and make minor adjustments to how they’re shaped. They can also be designed to counterbalance teeth that are overcrowded, overlapped, crooked, or sit at odd angles to create a smooth, beautifully balanced smile. Porcelain veneers are one of the best ways to correct alignment issues without having to wait months or even years for traditional braces or Invisalign to move your teeth into the correct position.

Other Benefits of Porcelain Veneers

Along with giving you straighter teeth, there are also several other aesthetic benefits that veneers can offer patients, including:

  • Fixing cracks and chips – Since veneers cover up the entire front surface of a person’s teeth, they can be used to mask small chips and cracks.
  • Closing gaps – Along with giving you a straighter smile, veneers can also slightly reshape teeth to close minor gaps between them.
  • Correcting discoloration – Veneers are color-matched to the rest of your smile, so they can make discolored teeth look whiter than before.

Veneers are an excellent way to straighten your smile and correct a range of other cosmetic dental issues. If you’re interested in getting veneers, contact your dentist to set up a consultation so they can help you determine if they’re the right option for your smile!
