For patients that are looking to address concerns with their teeth such as chips, cracks, improper spacing, misalignments, or discoloration, porcelain veneers have become a reliable solution with tremendous aesthetic benefits. While veneers recreate the natural appearance of teeth, they are also incredibly durable, providing long-lasting resilience and strength. Without question, it’s easy to see the value in porcelain veneers.
As a “kind” restorative measure, porcelain veneers do not irritate gum tissues (when compared to composite veneers). Given the advancements in digital dentistry, veneers can be applied easily and with little tooth preparation. In fact, only a small amount of a tooth must be removed to apply the veneer. While the overall look of teeth are transformed, veneers also mimic the function of natural teeth. Even so, porcelain veneers resist stains from coffee, tea, tobacco, and cigarette smoking. This means that even the darkest teeth can appear bright white with porcelain veneers.
Am I An Ideal Candidate For Porcelain Veneers?
While only a dental professional can determine if you’re an ideal candidate for porcelain veneers, here are a few questions to consider:
- Do I visit the dentist regularly?
- Do I practice good oral care at home?
- Are my teeth healthy and free from decay?
- Do I suffer from gum disease?
- Do I grind or clench my teeth?
- Is my bite aligned properly?
- Do I have enough healthy tooth enamel to support veneers?
