Some cases of teeth straightening simply don’t call for braces, or don’t suit them as the best response. For example, some of our patients have just one tooth that is out of alignment from the rest; other cases show teeth that are overlapping each other. Either of these cases may not be ideal situations for the use of braces or Invisalign, but porcelain veneers may easily correct the problem and lead to a beautiful straight smile.
Another example, and one which we see quite frequently, involves the canine teeth (fangs) showing more prominently than the rest of the teeth, and creating a perfect opportunity for teeth straightening - we can easily use porcelain veneers to correct the appearance of these teeth. Even if your teeth are set back from the others, or if just one tooth is, we can still correct this quickly and easily, without the use of a brace.
The causes of crooked or misaligned teeth are incredibly varied – as one particularly notable example, many of our clients used to suck their thumbs as children and the result was their teeth pushed forwards at the front. Veneers can also be used to reduce the protrusion of these teeth.
Due to the variety of reasons for teeth being crooked, the only thing that matters is how we respond – and in many cases, a set of custom, hand-crafted porcelain veneers from our dental experts on Harley Street can give you a beautiful, even smile in only a few days!
Our porcelain veneers can usually be applied in just two pain-free sessions, lasting on average just 90 minutes. Instead of months or years wearing uncomfortable braces, our clients are able to undergo teeth straightening in just a few hours, in a clinic especially designed to make everything as stress-free and painless as possible.
