6 Signs You Are A Good Candidate For Veneers

Are you feeling self conscious about chipped, damaged, or discoloured teeth? Porcelain veneers are an innovative cosmetic dentistry treatment that can give you the natural, beautiful, and white smile you’ve always desired.

Cosmetic dentistry is a branch of dental care that includes innovative treatments such as porcelain veneers, dental implants, and teeth whitening that can have many benefits for patients of all ages, such as:

  • Enhanced self confidence
  • Improved aesthetics of teeth and smile
  • Lower risk of periodontal disease
  • Prevention of future dental damage
  • Improved eating ability

What Are Veneers Used For?

A veneer is constructed from a small, thin shell of either porcelain, ceramic, or resin-based composite, and it is designed to fit perfectly over the front of your teeth. It can be used to address a number of oral concerns including:

  • Gaps between teeth
  • Chipped teeth
  • Cracked teeth
  • Minor misalignments
  • Discoloration
  • Crooked or poorly shaped teeth


Are Veneers the Right Treatment For Me?

Veneers are a very effective cosmetic dental treatment, but they are not appropriate for every patient, or every tooth. It’s important to book a consultation with your dentist as he/she is in the best position to determine whether veneers are suitable for making the changes you need.

Some of the cases in which veneers may not be a good option include:

  • Patient has gum disease or decay. These oral conditions must treated first before fabricating and bonding with veneers.
  • Teeth are weak. If you have a significant amount of tooth structure missing, or your tooth has been replaced by a filling, then that tooth will not be strong enough to function with a veneer.
  • Patient grinds his/her teeth. If a patient suffers from bruxism and habitually grinds his/her teeth, then this can easily break or chip the veneers. This condition must be treated first before veneers can be placed.
  • There isn’t enough healthy enamel. Before placing the veneers, the dentist will have to remove a thin layer of enamel first, which means a patient should have enough healthy enamel.



Looking After Your Dental Veneers

In order to ensure you receive the best results from your dental veneer treatment, you must make a commitment to a good dental hygiene regimen. This will ensure your veneers continue looking and functioning their very best.

Here are some simple tips to help keep your smile beautiful and healthy:

  • Brush your teeth and veneers at least twice a day and floss regularly to maintain your oral health and lower your risk of any dental problems.
  • Talk to your dentist if you suffer from bruxism. They can fabricate a customized mouthguard for you to wear. This will minimize any stress placed upon your teeth while you sleep, making your veneers last longer.
  • Make sure to visit your dentist for a post-treatment checkup after one week. This allows him/her to evaluate the placement of your veneers, the gum tissue response, and address any concerns you may have.
  • Schedule yearly checkups with your dentist so that your veneers and oral health can be reviewed periodically.
