Can I Get Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers can be a great way to transform the appearance of your smile. This minimally invasive treatment option can be custom crafted to fit over your affected teeth, helping to conceal a variety of perceived tooth imperfections with natural-looking results. After a thorough dental evaluation and consultation at Pomerado Cosmetic Dentistry, our dentists can determine whether you are a good candidate for porcelain veneers.
Who is a Good Candidate for Porcelain Veneers?
Ideal candidates for porcelain veneers are typically seeking to fix one or more of the following smile concerns:
- Chipped teeth
- Gaps between teeth
- Tooth misalignment
- Stained or yellowed teeth
- Short or uneven tooth length
- Minor bite misalignment
During a thorough pre-treatment dental evaluation, our dentists examine all aspects of the teeth, bite, and smile to determine candidacy for porcelain veneers. Patients exhibiting the following complications may not be good candidates for porcelain veneers:
- Problematic tooth damage or decay
- Extensive misalignment and the presence of shifting or overly-rotated teeth
- Evidence of severe tooth grinding (bruxism)
- Severe bite misalignment
These complications may prevent the proper support of a veneer or cause damage to veneers, which can result in the need for replacement. If this is the case, there may be more appropriate restorations and cosmetic treatment options available to help correct these issues and still provide you with the beautiful smile you are looking to achieve.
