How Does Dr. Zarger Treat Overlapping Teeth?

There is no single treatment option that is right for treating overlapping teeth. Dr. Zarger will examine your teeth and recommend the treatment option that he feels is most appropriate in your particular case. In especially severe cases of overlapping, he may refer patients out to a skilled and trusted orthodontic specialist in the region. However, in many cases, it is possible to produce excellent results with one of several cosmetic dentistry options, including:

  • Porcelain veneers: Porcelain veneers are fabrications that Dr. Zarger custom crafts to bond to the front surfaces of teeth, where they conceal aesthetic imperfections. In fact, when used to treat misalignment, porcelain veneers are often referred to as a sort of “instant orthodontics.” When Dr. Zarger affixes veneers to the front surfaces of misaligned teeth, they give the teeth a straighter, more uniform appearance.
  • Porcelain crowns: Dr. Zarger often uses porcelain crowns in conjunction with porcelain veneers as part of a comprehensive smile makeover in the treatment of overlapping teeth. Crowns improve the appearance of misaligned teeth by concealing the entire visible surface area of the tooth, which is filed down to accommodate the crown.
  • Dental bonding: Dental bonding involves the application of a composite resin material onto misaligned teeth to impose a more uniform appearance. When exposed to a curing light and polished and shaped to perfection, this bonding material looks extremely natural and lends the smile a stunning new appearance. Although bonded teeth won’t look quite as natural as teeth treated with porcelain veneers, dental bonding is more cost-effective and still produces outstanding results.
