5 Ways to Correct Uneven Teeth


Posted on 5/22/2023 by Life Long Dental
5 Ways to Correct Uneven TeethUneven teeth can be a source of self-consciousness, especially in today's age and time. While there are several reasons why you may develop uneven teeth, such as genetics and poor oral health, you might want to fix them so that you can smile with confidence. Luckily enough, there are several procedures that you can undertake to give you the perfect smile.

Veneers


Veneers have become very popular over the past couple of years. They are custom-made porcelain layers that are fitted into the front of your teeth. They are perfect for hiding gaps, chips, and even cracks. However, contrary to popular opinion, veneers are not just a cosmetic procedure, they are also essential in improving your bite.

Crowns


This procedure is common for fixing missing, decayed, or broken teeth. These porcelain crowns are fit over the top of damaged or broken teeth to restore both its appearance and function. They are also essential for correcting uneven smiles.

Braces


Braces are perhaps one of the most popular methods of fixing uneven teeth. They are essential in fixing other problems such as overcrowding, overbites, and underbites. They use metal brackets that are placed on the front of your teeth and are connected by metal wires.

Contouring


Also referred to as tooth reshaping is a very simple, non-invasive treatment, where the dentist shaves off a thin layer of your enamel to reshape them. Contouring is mostly used to correct very minor differences in the surface of your teeth, as well as its shape and length. This method is pain-free and only takes a short amount of time to complete.

Dental Bonding


Dental bonding is used to correct gaps, minor tooth damage, and uneven teeth. It is a non-invasive procedure that is done in a matter of minutes. The dentist applies composite resin to your tooth and then proceeds to sculpt it. They also use bonding to close gaps between teeth.

If you want to fix your uneven teeth, there are many solutions that you can opt to choose from veneers to braces to dental contouring. However, it is vital that you consult with a dental specialist who can direct you on the best procedure, considering your oral health and what you hope to achieve.
