Underbites are a common dental problem where the lower teeth stick out farther than the upper ones. This can sometimes lead to a lot of issues:
If you have an underbite and are considering your options, you may have heard of a rather uncommon way to address it: veneers.
But can Frisco veneers fix an underbite? Keep reading to find out!
An underbite can be the result of many different factors, from being genetically predisposed to this jaw misalignment to even certain medical conditions like acromegaly or Crouzon syndrome.
Underbites can also have several degrees of severity - essentially, some may be more discreet and some more pronounced. The type of underbite you have will likely determine the treatment plan, as the orthodontist will review your specific case in order to determine which course of action can provide the best results.
After determining the best position for your jaw, veneers can be used in order to build the lower dental arch and get an optimal jaw position. This method can also be done using dental crowns or other dental cosmetic restoration methods.
Getting veneers for underbites is actually one of the most popular ways to treat underbites in adults without surgery or getting braces. It’s also the optimal choice if you are dealing with other tooth appearance issues, such as discoloration or severe staining.
Unfortunately, the only way to know for sure is to book an appointment with an orthodontist and sit through a consultation. Because underbites can have different degrees of severity, the right treatment path for you can only be chosen after a thorough analysis of your condition.
Not only that, but if you are dealing with other dental problems, they too can influence your treatment plan.
