Hello Thuy Hien!

Thank you very much for sharing your concerns about your teeth and wishes with Nhan Tam dental clinic. We will give the most specific answers to the question of what is the best way to correct the middle teeth.

What is an overbite?

Overbite is the deviation of teeth in both direction, position, and direction of teeth. Protruding teeth cause an imbalance in the bite that affects both the chewing function as well as the aesthetics of the teeth.

To correct protruding teeth according to the nature of this deviation, braces are required. Because only braces can realign teeth to the most accurate position, direction, and direction without completely affecting tooth tissue.

Protruding teeth seriously affect the aesthetic function and chewing

However, due to the advancement of dental techniques, there are many methods that have been applied to treat protruding teeth. Surgery or porcelain crowns are such techniques. Therefore, what you are advised is porcelain veneers, braces, or surgery to correct cough are not wrong. However, it is not necessarily true in your case.

What is the best way to fix the overbite?

Overbite is a mild protrusion, only occurring in the front teeth group, which is the incisors, so the treatment may be different from the treatment of full jaw protrusion.

If the whole jaw is protruding due to teeth, then the option of braces is optimal because braces take a long time, but the effect is created on the whole teeth. If the whole jaw is protruding due to the jaw bone, only jaw surgery can fix it.

In your case, because only the middle teeth are protruding, it is possible to eliminate the jaw surgery method. At that time, if applying braces, for many people it is too long a time just to affect a few front teeth. Instead, people will consider how to fix other teeth in the middle of the gap faster than porcelain crowns.

Porcelain veneer for protruding teeth is a method of using porcelain crowns that have been aesthetically shaped so that when placed on protruding teeth, it will reduce protrusion. This way helps to cure a cough quickly after only about 2-3 appointments in 3 days, it does not take many years like braces.

However, porcelain veneers for protruding teeth have the disadvantage that they must undergo grinding of real teeth (which are protruding teeth). This problem is recommended to be minimized. As for the method of braces, you can rest assured about this problem because there is absolutely no need to grind your teeth during treatment.

Therefore, between the two methods of braces and crowns, you can choose a method according to your own considerations. If you do not want to have to grind your teeth and wait patiently for a while, you can get braces to correct the middle teeth. But if you do not want to spend too much time on treatment, you can grind the protruding teeth to cover the porcelain. Anyway, if possible, it is better to get braces to permanently stop chipping without having to have any other effects later, avoid porcelain crowns, and have to depend on these dentures for life.

If the above sharing is not satisfactory to you, or you want to be truly assured and confident, you can visit Nhan Tam dental clinic, you will be consulted directly and more specifically. The doctors will give advice after meeting you in person to know how to correct your protruding teeth for the best fit.
