Am I a Candidate for Veneers?


If you’re one of the millions of people in the world who look in the mirror and see a smile that has features that make you embarrassed or uncomfortable with sharing it, there are options to help correct those concerns. If your teeth have multiple minor imperfections that add up to a grin that makes your cringe, consider looking into porcelain veneers. This incredible restorative dentistry prosthetic can collect multiple dental issues in just one treatment.

What Imperfections Veneers Can Address

Getting veneers involves the removal of a thing coat of enamel from your teeth so that a beautiful set of ceramic caps can be put in place. These caps are specially designed to perfectly match your natural teeth in color, but remove visible misalignments, chips, cracks, and discolorations. This ceramic prosthetic can treat the following concerns:

  • Cracked Teeth
  • Chipped Teeth
  • Stained Teeth
  • Gapped Teeth
  • Uneven Teeth

Even if you have multiple instances of these concerns porcelain veneers will be able to address them in one application. Severe issues aren’t eligible for treatment with veneers as they are incapable of correcting significant damage or teeth with large misalignments.

Will Porcelain Veneers Work For Me?

The best way to answer this question is scheduling a consultation with your dental health provider. If you have a healthy mouth with no signs of gingivitis or periodontal disease, don’t grind your teeth at night or during the day, and have oral health that is otherwise in good shape, veneers may work for you. If all these apply to you and your teeth only have minor imperfections than you may be a candidate.

Will I Benefit From Porcelain Veneers?

If you have multiple aesthetic concerns with your teeth, but no major damage or misalignments, than you can definitely benefit from this treatment. Porcelain veneers are durable and easy to care for, and won’t impact the natural function of your teeth. Hard foods and improper use of your teeth, such as hard candy and cracking nuts, must be avoided to ensure they remain attractive and healthy. The custom tinting that comes with the veneers ensures they match your teeth and won’t be noticeable to the casual observer.

What Steps Do I Need To Take To Care For My Veneers

Your veneers are made of a material that’s highly stain resistant, but you still need to maintain a regular routine of mouthwash, flossing, and of course brushing twice a day. As part of this care regime you’ll want to pick up a toothbrush with medium or soft bristles and use an anti-bacterial mouthwash. While your veneers are remarkably durable, they will still require regular care as part of your oral health routine.
