Treatment Options for Overlapping Teeth
By Steven Kail on August 22, 2017
Overlapping teeth can make an otherwise attractive smile look unhealthy and out of alignment. Fortunately, modern cosmetic dentistry offers a number of alternatives to traditional metal braces that can be used to treat overlapping teeth. At Premier Dental Center, we are proud to offer the finest of these cosmetic dentistry treatments, using only the most advanced and effective techniques and technologies to deliver the best results possible for our valued patients.
Before discussing your treatment options for overlapping teeth at our Jackson, TN cosmetic, restorative, and general dentistry practice, one of our esteemed dentists will first examine your teeth. He will then recommend a treatment plan based on your unique needs and your stated cosmetic goals. Each of our experienced dentists is highly skilled at customizing treatments to the smile of each individual patient.
Are you dissatisfied with the appearance of your smile due to the presence of one or more overlapping teeth? If so, we invite you to schedule your initial consultation with Dr. Steven Kail, Dr. Joe Leonard, or Dr. Chris Arnold at Premier Dental Center today.
How Are Overlapping Teeth Treated at Premier Dental Center?
There are several cosmetic dentistry treatments that can be used to treat overlapping teeth. Our dentists will always recommend the most conservative treatment that is likely to yield the best results in any particular case. The treatment options for overlapping teeth available at Premier Dental Center include:
- Invisalign®: The Invisalign® system works to realign teeth through a series of custom-crafted, clear plastic aligners. These aligners are virtually undetectable when worn and, unlike traditional metal braces, can be removed for brushing, flossing, and eating. Each aligner in the series gently but definitively guides overlapping and other misaligned teeth closer toward their optimal positions in the mouth. The current aligner is worn for approximately two weeks, at which point it is switched out for the next aligner in the series. Treatment time with Invisalign® is generally the same as, and sometimes shorter than, that of conventional metal braces, and the results are similarly excellent.
- Porcelain veneers: When porcelain veneers are affixed to the front surfaces of both the top and bottom teeth, overlapping teeth can easily be concealed and the smile can be reinvented. This sort of “instant orthodontics” creates the impression of perfectly straight, uniform teeth without the need for metal braces or months of orthodontic treatment.
- Dental crowns: Dental crowns are often used in combination with porcelain veneers as part of a comprehensive smile makeover plan for patients with overlapping teeth. Dental crowns can help to improve alignment and strengthen the bite, providing the patient with an aesthetically pleasing smile for years to come.
