How Dental Veneers Help Correct Malocclusions

Smiling Women

A malocclusion is defined as a misalignment between teeth in two arches. When people bite down, the teeth should fit together reasonably well. However, due to a litany of reasons, such as genetics or gum disease, people will develop problems that make chewing more difficult. It is paramount to correct this issue before it gets out of hand. While orthodontics can help, many patients will want to pursue dental veneers to cover up the problem.

Veneers Cover Up an Array of Issues

To ensure a proper fit, our dentist in Spokane, WA will remove a small portion of the enamel. This is to ensure the veneers do not bulge past the rest of the teeth too much. Through this, the restoration fixes any misalignment issues. When you bite down, your upper and lower arches will feel more comfortable, allowing you to eat better. However, veneers can be used for many flaws, such as:

  • Chips
  • Cracks
  • Differing lengths
  • Wornness
  • Flattening

While these problems are uncomfortable, they can also make people feel self-conscious about their smiles. Once you have veneers, you will want to smile wide for everyone to see. No one will even be able to tell you got a restoration because the veneers are designed to look like the rest of your teeth.

Our Dentist Can Tell You If Veneers Are Right for You
