Uneven smile – uneven bite

TMJ is often associated with an uneven smile because the very essence of the existence of TMJ is uneven pressure that is placed on the joints of the jaw. Therefore, when the smile becomes uneven, such as in the case of an overbite or when teeth are missing or have worn down, the joints of the jaw naturally have areas where more force is placed on them. This often results in symptoms of TMJ and over time, the symptoms can become significantly worse, especially if adequate treatment is not effectively applied.

Balance your bite and even out your smile in 4 simple steps

  1. The first of the four steps involved with effectively dealing with these problems is very simple. It simply requires that you go online and look through the smile catalog. Choose the smile that you believe to be the best fit for you in order to start the process.
  2. The next step involves having impressions of your teeth made so that dental professionals have something to go on. This gives them an ability to compare your existing smile with the smile you have chosen so that they know how to proceed.
  3. The third step requires that a wax mockup be made and previewed by you so that you know how your new smile will look. This gives you a tangible idea of the way your smile will look when the process is finished.
  4. Finally, the fourth and last step is to have porcelain veneers made to exactly fit the wax mockup. These veneers are then implanted, allowing you to have the smile that you have always wanted.

The best part about the entire process is that you get a great looking smile and you even out all of the pressure points on your jaw so that your symptoms of TMJ can be reduced.
