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.
Veneers are made of porcelain or composite resin. They are made to blend in with your teeth. People will have no idea you even have veneers. Here are some of the signs that you may be a good candidate for veneers.

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.
Veneers should only cover up cosmetic issues. Covering up tooth decay and gum disease with veneers is not a good idea because those conditions could turn into severe issues, eventually causing the teeth to loosen and fall out.
If you want veneers, you should not grind or clench your teeth at night. If you do, this can be corrected with a mouthguard to be worn while you sleep. The mouthguard will prevent you from wearing down your teeth when you clench and grind them at night. One more thing. If your teeth are severely misaligned, the veneers could crack under the pressure. However, veneers can fix slightly crooked teeth.
As you can see, dental veneers help with many tooth-related imperfections and issues.
Some people delay trying a veneer because they think it may be too expensive. The good news is our office provides payment plans and financial options. Think of veneers as an investment because they can help stop future damage to your teeth. The best way to see if you are a good candidate for veneers is to call our office at 858-401-7761.
