Could I Get Veneers to Change the Shape of My Teeth?
Hi Dr Hughes. I have had braces in the past, but my front teeth relapsed slightly after the treatment had finished. I am due to turn 21 this year and I have been unhappy with my 4 top front teeth for a while. I have spent a lot of money on my braces to still be this unhappy. I think my teeth are oddly shaped and they push out from the side. I was considering veneers or something similar, would these be suitable to change the shape of my teeth? I would like some advice on what my options would be. I am not very familiar with veneers or the price range but I am willing to consider my options. Thank you in advance.
Hi there, thank you for your question. Veneers certainly could be an option. You would need to be assessed in person of course for suitability, and to figure out the complexity of your situation and exactly what your goals are. Veneers can be made of porcelain or composite resin and can be direct or indirect and require no preparation (reduction of the tooth), some minor preparation or quite significant preparation to get the best results. Sometimes, for safety of the nerves of your teeth, some orthodontic movement can be needed first too.
My advice is to see a highly experienced or accredited cosmetic dentist for the best results. Regards, Mark.
