If you have mild cosmetic flaws with your teeth, such as small cracks, chips, or gaps, you may have considered porcelain veneers as a solution. These dental issues may not affect the function of your mouth but they may cause you to hide your smile, so as not to show those imperfections.
Porcelain veneers are a magnificent fix for minor cosmetic issues and have many benefits beyond covering aesthetic blemishes. They’re stain-resistant, natural looking, and long lasting. As with any dental procedure, there are certain qualifications that one must have to be an ideal candidate for porcelain veneers. These requirements are not meant to exclude anyone, rather to make sure that the safest and most effective solution is used to address your oral concerns.
Ideal candidates for porcelain veneers include those:
- Who have chipped, cracked, discolored, worn, or gapped teeth
- With healthy teeth
- Do not suffer from gum disease
- Do not grind their teeth
- Have realistic expectations for the outcome
During your consultation, Dr. Fleschler will thoroughly examine your oral health to determine the best solution for your dental problems. Once it’s determined that you’re a candidate for porcelain veneers, you’ll be scheduled for the procedure and you will enjoy durable, long-lasting results.
