Treatment Options for Jutted Teeth
There are several alternatives to traditional orthodontic procedures that can be used to treat jutted teeth. Our dentists will examine your mouth to determine whether the best possible results can be achieved by using any of these methods and then recommend a treatment plan customized to your unique needs and goals.
Available treatments for jutted teeth include:
In addition to being one of the most transformative of all cosmetic dentistry treatments, porcelain veneers can be used as a type of “instant orthodontics,” addressing issues of minor misalignment among teeth and creating the impression of a straight, uniform smile. By bonding porcelain veneers to the front surfaces of the front teeth, our dentists can redefine the orientation of the teeth, concealing the jutted tooth and making over the entire smile in the process. At the same time, other imperfections such as chips, cracks, and discoloration will also be concealed. Our dentists use only the finest-grade porcelain to ensure long-lasting results and the most natural-looking veneers possible
Porcelain crowns are custom-crafted to cover the entire surface area of a tooth from the gum line up. Our dentists can file down a jutted tooth and cover it with a porcelain crown, reinventing its appearance while simultaneously improving the bite. Like porcelain veneers, porcelain crowns are remarkably natural looking.
Dental bonding accomplishes a similar goal to porcelain veneers; however, this treatment option is slightly more cost-effective while being slightly less natural in its appearance. Dental bonding involves the application of a tooth-colored composite resin material to the affected teeth to create the appearance of a uniform, straight smile.
