Any patients who are dissatisfied with shape or color of their teeth will be good candidates for dental veneers. The wafer thin shell will ensure that the tooth’s appearance is corrected, while also maintaining the natural tooth.
Some patients turn to veneers in order to conceal damage and staining to their teeth that has been caused by certain medications. Chips, broken teeth, and teeth with craters can make use of veneers in order to restore an even and smooth shape to the tooth.
Porcelain veneers can also be used to correct small gaps that are between teeth, as a rapid alternative to orthodontic treatments.
Porcelain veneers are a versatile dental solution, and they are amongst some of the most popular choices in cosmetic dental treatments.
A major consideration, prior to getting dental veneers, is the overall health of your natural teeth and your gums. Any damage or decay to your teeth should be addressed prior to your veneers being fitted to your teeth. Cavities should be filled; root canal therapy should be completed. If there is any sign of gum disease, then it should be treated well in advance of your porcelain veneers. Remember that veneers won’t do anything to protect your teeth from advancing damage if there is already damage and decay present. It’s always best to treat any concerns, and then get your veneers affixed to healthy natural teeth.
