Ideal Candidates for Treatment with Porcelain Veneers By Byron Wall on March 13, 2014

Ideal Candidates for Treatment with Porcelain VeneersThere are plenty of options available to you if you would like to enhance the overall appearance of your smile. Many cosmetic treatments can be combined as you need them in order to perform a smile makeover. A cosmetic dentist can craft a custom smile makeover just for you, addressing all aesthetic flaws that you may be facing.

While multiple treatments may be used to achieve a full smile makeover, sometimes all that you require is a single treatment. There is actually one treatment option that can address many diverse cosmetic problems, including:

  • Chips
  • Cracks
  • Stains
  • Gaps
  • Minor misalignments

The results are so dramatic that the treatment has been nicknamed “instant orthodontics.” That treatment is known as porcelain veneers.

About Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are thin shells of dental ceramic that are adhered to the front portions of the teeth in order to mask imperfections and make your smile look absolutely pristine and perfect. The veneers blend in seamlessly with your natural tooth structure, making them indistinguishable from your natural teeth.

General Candidacy for Porcelain Veneers

The best candidates for porcelain veneers are people who suffer from dental flaws that are predominantly aesthetic in nature. They should be in otherwise good dental health and not suffer from any kind of serious dental health problems, and they should also have realistic expectations about the nature of the treatment.

Porcelain Veneers for Chipped and Cracked Teeth

When you have teeth that are slightly chipped or cracked but the tooth damage does not affect the overall structure of the tooth, a porcelain veneer will be able to mask the problem from view as if it never happened.

Porcelain Veneers for Tooth Discoloration and Stains

Sometimes stains and discoloration can be very pronounced and too severe for teeth whitening to treat. In those cases, an ideal option to consider for care is the use of porcelain veneers.

Porcelain Veneers for Crooked Teeth and Spacing Issues

Sometimes a full orthodontic treatment is not necessary and instant orthodontics will suffice. Getting porcelain veneers can improve the overall appearance of your smile, which means closing tooth gaps and enhancing the overall alignment of your smile.

Alternatives to Porcelain Veneers to Consider

If you are not a good candidate for porcelain veneers, there are numerous alternatives that may be better suited to you and your needs. This includes dental bonding, teeth whitening, dental crowns, and traditional orthodontic care.
