Are Veneers Right For Me?

Are you a good candidate for veneers? Veneers are an effective and affordable cosmetic treatment to improve your smile. Veneers are very thin shells that are cemented on the front of teeth to cover up chips or cracks. Veneers can whiten your teeth, change the shape of your teeth, close gaps, and hide any crooked teeth. An improved smile can increase your self-esteem and confidence.

If you are wondering whether veneers are right for you, here are some of the signs.

You have healthy gums and teeth. If your gums and teeth are not healthy, and there is an infection, then that problem needs to be treated first. Our office is a full service facility, so we can treat gum disease and other issues. Once your dental problem is fixed, you should be a good candidate for veneers, but keep reading!

You also need to have enough tooth enamel so that a small layer can be removed to create a rough surface for the veneers to attach. This minor prep work allows our dentist to bond the veneer to your teeth effectively. If you are getting no-prep veneers then this is not necessary.

Veneers are a great option for discoloration, or stains, on your teeth that do not improve with a teeth whitening treatment; however, extensive tooth decay should not be covered by veneers. If you have serious tooth decay, then it needs to be treated before getting veneers. Our dentist can use fillings to repair your tooth decay, and then move ahead with veneers.
