Am I a Candidate for Porcelain Veneers?

March 27, 2017 - 2 minutes read

Many people are not confident in their smile. In fact, they might even hide their smile behind their hand, or they never show their teeth when they smile, which can make the grin look forced. One of the most common reasons for this is because they worry about the look of their teeth. They might have cracks, chips, or other issues with the teeth, such as gaps. If this sounds like you, then you will want to consider seeing if you are a candidate for porcelain veneers.

The veneers are a good option for covering up discolored and stained teeth, as well as gaps, misshapen teeth, mild misalignment, and teeth that have chips and cracks. However, not everyone is a candidate for porcelain veneers.

Those who are generally considered to be a good choice for these types of veneers include those who are not suffering from gum disease and who have teeth that are healthy and not decayed. In addition, they want to make sure that your bite is properly aligned and that you do not grind your teeth. Candidates will also need to have enough healthy tooth enamel to support the veneers.

It can be difficult to know if you are a candidate for porcelain veneers on your own, so you will want to get in touch with a cosmetic dentist who works with dental veneers. Our dentists will provide you with an examination to determine your overall dental health and let you know if porcelain veneers are the right choice for you. If they are, you can move forward with the procedure. If not, they may need to do other work on your teeth first, or they might suggest a different procedure.
