Frequently Asked Questions

Why are veneers better than braces?

Many people believe that braces are the best solution to issues such as protruding laterals, but that is not always the case. Braces slowly move your teeth into a straightened position and can leave people bothered about the appearance of them. If you feel slightly self-conscious about wearing braces, there is always the inclusion of veneers.

Veneers are made up of porcelain shells, that can be applied to your lateral incisors, in order to create the smile of your dreams in a non-invasive and pain-free procedure. From having veneers as the solution to fixing your lateral incisors, all of your front teeth will appear aligned. Quick and painless, you will be impressed with the results and everyone will swiftly be impressed with your new smile.

What causes lateral incisors to stick out?

Lateral incisors have the largest range of formations, which means they can grow into various shapes, sizes and thicknesses. This may result in them protruding and could be due to several factors, including:

  • Natural development can cause your lateral incisors to stick out, as your adjacent teeth may push them outwards whilst they are still growing, causing them to fall out of alignment with the rest of the teeth
  • Habitual practices, such as thumb sucking and pacifier use as a child, which over time could have pushed the upper front teeth forward

How can I straighten my protruding lateral incisors?

Two of the most common treatments for teeth straightening are braces and porcelain veneers. The latter being the most preferred option, especially in adults, who may feel apprehensive about wearing braces on a daily basis.

Here at Harley Street Smile Clinic, we provide a professional porcelain veneers service that will correct your teeth alignment, making sure that your lateral incisors do not stick out. You can either opt for a couple of veneers to cover your crooked teeth, or you could choose the recommended amount of 8 to 10 veneers, which will transform your entire smile.

How much does it cost to have veneers fitted?

At Harley Street, we offer a competitively priced porcelain veneers service, which provides our customers with excellent value for their money.

The cost of your veneers is dependent on your individual preferences. View our fees page for up-to-date veneers costs.

The price is also determined by the condition of your teeth. If the only problem is just with your lateral incisors, then this may only require minimal preparation before your veneers are fitted. However, if you have additional issues with your teeth, this will require further preparation – which may come at an extra cost depending on how much work our dentist’s carry out on your teeth.

All of these options can be discussed in your free E-consultation, where one of our expert dentists will advise you on what needs to be done in order to achieve your dream smile.
