The term ‘buck teeth’ or ‘goofy teeth’ is used to describe front teeth that stick out over the lower lip. This can make adults (buck teeth people) who have them conscious of their smiles; it can even be embarrassing to some people.
A person can develop buck teeth for a variety of reasons; some people have them because of genetics, while others have them because of habits like tongue-thrusting and thumb sucking. People who have jaw-related problems may also develop buck teeth.
Younger children can get buck teeth fixed with orthodontic treatments, but fixing buck teeth during adulthood can get a little complicated. Dentists recommend treatments based on the condition of the teeth, among other factors.
Are Veneers a Viable Solution? How do we treat Buck Teeth?
Modern veneers and New Jersey dental crowns are durable and look more realistic than they ever have in the past. They’re a simple yet effective solution to a wide range of cosmetic dental problems that adults struggle with.
But when it comes to buck teeth, veneers aren’t always a viable solution. They may be able to fix some people’s buck teeth, but definitely not everyone’s; it varies from person to person.
Here’s what veneers can do for buck teeth:
Improve Cosmetic Appearance on Permanent Teeth
Untreated buck teeth cause the upper bone to move outward and over the bottom lip.
As a result, the spaces between the top teeth get wider. Adults that have smaller gaps between their teeth can benefit from veneers.
High-quality veneers can be used to fill the gaps and improve a person’s smile.
Veneers can cover aesthetic imperfections like misaligned teeth by placing a cap over them.
If your buck teeth aren’t prominent, their misalignment can easily be masked with veneers.
Veneers are attached to the front of your teeth. No matter what condition your teeth are in, the thin and strong veneers caps will cover them and improve your smile.
