Porcelain veneers are one of the most versatile and effective treatments available to your cosmetic dentist. Veneers are used for a number of cosmetic and restorative dental procedures, including tooth whitening, fixing cracked or chipped teeth, filling tooth gaps, and minor straightening. Good candidates for porcelain veneers meet the following basic criteria.
To be considered for porcelain veneers you must already have good oral hygiene habits. Decay, gum disease, and plaque build up must be addressed prior to considering veneers for cosmetic purposes. Other options may be tried or considered before deciding on veneers.
After investigating all the available cosmetic options, a good candidate will have realistic expectations about what porcelain veneers can do improve their smiles. Even if they are chosen for reconstructive purposes like fixing cracked or chipped teeth, porcelain veneers will provide you with a more aesthetically pleasing visage.
When considering porcelain veneers to improve and brighten your smile, or to fix cracked or damaged teeth, you will want to find a qualified cosmetic dentist with a proven history of success.
