Am I a Candidate for Porcelain Veneers?
Do you find you don’t want to smile because of crooked, discolored, chipped or unevenly spaced teeth? If you are self-conscious about your smile and find yourself covering your mouth because you don’t want others to see your teeth, porcelain veneers may be right for you.
Benefits of Veneers
Porcelain veneers are thin, custom-designed ceramic shells that are bonded to the front surface of your natural teeth to enhance their shape, color and size. Veneers are a good fit for anyone who wants to improve their smile quickly, especially straighten their appearance without the look and feel of metal braces.
Veneers are ideal if you have:
- Crooked or uneven teeth
- Chipped teeth
- Severe discolorations
- Tiny teeth that you wish were larger
- Small holes in your teeth
- Gaps between your teeth
- Teeth that are too close together
Your Overall Well-Being
Your dental issues can have more than a cosmetic impact-they can directly affect your life. For example, chipped teeth can cause headaches, and discolored teeth might prevent you from socializing with others. Uneven teeth are harder to clean and gaps trap food, leading to greater decay. Concerns like these can negatively impact your physical and emotional well-being.
You are a good candidate for porcelain veneers if you are in good health and have a sufficient amount of tooth enamel. If you have insufficient tooth enamel for veneers, you might benefit from either Dental Bonding or Dental Crowns. There are different individual factors that may also go into your decision, such as your psychological condition and any physical concerns, which also may make either of these options preferable in your case.
Dental bonding is used to correct many different cosmetic dentistry issues, including cracked teeth, decayed teeth, gaps between teeth, misshapen teeth, and chipped teeth. Dental bonding is very versatile, and it is one of the most common cosmetic dentistry procedures performed.
