Porcelain veneers are crafted from ultra-thin translucent porcelain ceramic and are bonded to the front and sides of teeth. Our porcelain veneers offer a natural look because we color-match them to your teeth. Porcelain veneers can improve the appearance of crooked teeth, repair chipped and broken teeth, cover discolored or stained teeth, and close spaces between teeth for a more balanced smile.
A more economical alternative to porcelain veneers, tooth bonding utilizes bio-composite material that is sculpted and shaped to a tooth, and then “bonded” using a special light. Dental bonding can change the size and shape of the teeth. The bonding material also blends in with teeth for a natural look.
Tooth bonding is less permanent than porcelain veneers and can be a great option for patients who may not want to commit to veneers. This treatment can not only be used for crooked teeth, but also for other damaged or chipped teeth. Like porcelain veneers, tooth bonding treatment can brighten your smile by several shades.
Crooked Teeth FAQs
What happens if you don’t fix crooked teeth?
It is important to fix crooked teeth because they can cause a wide range of issues. Not fixing them can cause trouble with chewing, eating, and speech.

Genetics can cause crooked teeth, but there are a variety of factors that affect tooth alignment. If your crooked teeth issues are genetic, we can simply address the issue with orthodontics.
Can crooked teeth get worse as you age?
Crooked teeth can continue to shift as you age. Teeth will continue to shift to fill space if gaps or crowding is present.
Can crooked teeth cause health problems?
Crooked teeth may cause a variety of oral and health problems. They may impact speech, and cause jaw and facial pain. Crooked teeth may also cause other teeth to shift and move further out of alignment.
Do crooked teeth affect your face shape?
Crooked teeth may contribute to patients’ face shape and facial symmetry. Alignment has a large impact on facial symmetry. Teeth that are misaligned are more likely to cause a patient’s face to appear asymmetrical, or swollen on one side. Teeth help maintain facial structure, so misalignment has a direct effect on face shape.
What causes some people’s teeth to grow crooked?
There are a variety of reasons people’s teeth may grow crooked. The most common reason is the shape and size of the person’s jaw. People with a small jaw are more likely to experience tooth misalignment and crowding.
