What Treatments Are Available for Misshapen Teeth?

Posted on 7/25/2016 by Dr. Frank Sallustio
A man covering his mouth, because he’s embarrassed of his smile.If you are unhappy with the appearance of your teeth, there are several treatments that can change how your teeth look if they are uneven or misshapen. Every patient's treatment will be designed around their specific needs, but here are some of the options you might discuss during an evaluation:

Porcelain Veneers

Veneers are custom-made tooth coverings that are used to improve the appearance of your smile. In order to have porcelain veneers placed, your natural tooth needs to be slightly shaved down so that the veneer fits over your tooth. This preparation makes the procedure irreversible, but if cared for, veneers can last between 10 and 20 years.


Although dental crowns are commonly a restorative treatment, they can also be used for cosmetic purposes. They can be made from several different materials, such as porcelain or ceramic. Much like veneers, your tooth must be prepared before a crown can be placed. Your tooth may need to be reduced so that the crown can fit over the natural tooth, or if you do not have enough tooth to support the crown, you may need the tooth filled.

Dental Bonding

Composite bonding can be used to treat chipped teeth. It uses the same material that is used for filling cavities. This treatment cannot be used for large modifications, but it can be used sparingly to alter the shape of your teeth.

Enamel Shaping

If your teeth are uneven, enamel shaping can be a good option for smoothing out the edges of your teeth. It is not a big procedure, and it can be done in one visit.

If you are interested in changing the appearance of your teeth, call our office today to set up an appointment. We can discuss your goals and create a treatment plan to help build the smile you have always wanted.
