Porcelain veneers and crowns may be used to correct slightly misaligned or misshapen teeth. However, when there is significant crowding of the teeth, orthodontics is the most appropriate means of achieving a more harmonious alignment.
Orthodontics involves the use of oral appliances which are worn in the mouth to influence the growth of the teeth and jaws, or alter the position of the teeth. Orthodontics is not just about straightening the teeth and can be used to improve overall facial structure. We refer patients to an experienced local orthodontist to help our patients achieve greater confidence in their smiles.
