Can you Get Veneers with Crooked Teeth?

Have you wondered whether or not you can get veneers if you have some crooked teeth? We asked Dr. DesRosiers, of Lane & Associates Family Dentistry, several common questions we hear when it comes to the topic of getting veneers with crooked teeth. This article tells what Dr. DesRosiers said.

Dr. DesRosiers has completed several hundred cosmetic dental procedures and is an expert in the field. Here’s what he had to say when we asked him some of the most common questions we hear about getting veneers with crooked teeth.

Can you get veneers with crooked teeth?

“It’s always best to let the dentist evaluate your individual case. There are times when you can do veneers and correct some rotations, and things like that, but it’s really on a case-by-case basis. It has to do with the extent to which things are rotated or malpositioned, but in many cases, yes, you can correct those using restorative dentistry like veneers.”

If you do end up getting veneers for a quick cosmetic fix, make sure that you take care of your veneers. If you brush and floss them consistently, they will last for a long time.

Will veneers correct misaligned teeth?

“If things are just slightly out of line, there are times when we can correct the arch form using veneers, but it just depends on the severity of it, and the desired result, what we’re looking to do. Certain times you can, and sometimes there needs to be some combination of limited orthodontics and then veneers to get the perfect result.”

Do you need to get braces before veneers?

“If you’re going to get braces and or Invisalign, I would absolutely do that before the veneers. We want things in the most advantageous place, and then restore them permanently once you’re done with the orthodontics”

Can your teeth shift with veneers?

“Your teeth can shift with veneers, just as they can natural teeth. There’s nothing that kind of binds them together and keeps them from shifting if outward pressures are causing them to do so.”
