Porcelain Veneers to Correct Crooked Teeth

Pittsburgh porcelain veneers dentistSometimes referred to as “instant orthodontics,” porcelain veneers can be an ideal alternative for correcting crooked teeth. While traditional braces and alternative orthodontic solutions such as Invisalign are still highly effective straightening treatments, many Pittsburgh patients find that porcelain veneers are a much better fit for their aesthetic goals and personal preferences.

Often times this is because porcelain veneers provide nearly immediate results and do not require the same financial and personal investment that other orthodontic straightening solutions require. With porcelain veneers, the appearance of crooked teeth can be completely corrected within just a few visits, while traditional braces require 1-2 years of treatment that can be uncomfortable along with a greater number of regular office visits.

Alternatively though, porcelain veneers are not always the right cosmetic dentistry solution for everyone. For some patients with more severe misalignment, porcelain veneers might not provide the best results.

Depending on your unique circumstances, porcelain veneers might help you achieve a straighter smile if:

  • There are only a few teeth that need minor realignment
  • You wish to correct the appearance of slightly misshapen teeth that make your smile appear unbalanced
  • You do not have serious bite issues that might otherwise be better addressed with more traditional orthodontics
