Porcelain Veneers Candidate
Porcelain veneers are the simplest and most efficient cosmetic dentistry solution for addressing gaps between teeth, tooth discoloration, chipped and crooked teeth. If you desire a more aesthetically pleasing smile without the costs of extensive orthodontic surgery, you’re most likely a candidate for porcelain veneers.
Ideal Candidates For Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers are thin ceramic sheets that are bonded to the surface of your teeth. Also referred to as “instant orthodontics,” porcelain veneers can address a number of problems:
- Enamel that has become discolored from daily habits, such as smoking or drinking coffee, wine or tea.
- Chipped or misaligned teeth
- Gaps between, or unevenly spaced, teeth
- Crooked teeth
While porcelain veneers cannot fix major dentistry problems and are no substitute for proper oral hygiene, they’re ideal for minor tweaks to your smile and subsequent major boosts to your confidence.
Are You A Candidate?
If you have a smile that you want enhanced, most likely you can receive porcelain veneers. However, there are a number of necessary pre-conditions that exist in order for porcelain veneers to be applied. These include:
- Since enamel must be scraped from your tooth’s surface for the veneers to be applied, you must have enough pre-existing tooth enamel
- Be in good oral health
- Not be a victim of gum disease
Teeth Whitening or Porcelain Veneers?
Regaining your smile’s sparkle through tooth whitening procedures is another option to consider instead of porcelain veneers. While it’s an easier route to take, porcelain veneers do offer numerous advantages to tooth whitening:
- Since porcelain veneers are a ceramic shell placed over your teeth, they will protect your teeth from future staining agents
- It’s a more long-term solution
- Porcelain veneers not only brighten your smile, but rid your smile of unattractive cracks and gaps
