Who Is a Good Candidate for Porcelain Veneers? By Dr. Degel on June 01, 2011

If you have ever wanted to improve the overall appearance of your smile, you have plenty of options to accomplish this. One such option that’s important to consider is porcelain veneers. Our New York City cosmetic dentist and the entire team at our office knows just how effective porcelain veneers can be for our patients, and it’s a major part of our smile makeover treatments. Let’s cover who is a great candidate for porcelain veneers.

In general, a good candidate for porcelain veneers is someone who has a smile that he or she would like to improve. It is important that this patient have enough remaining tooth material in place and that the tooth is not severely damaged. The porcelain veneer is adhered to the front surface of the tooth, which means that any major damage to the tooth’s structure is not best dealt with using porcelain veneers.

So what dental problems can New York City porcelain veneers address? Quite a few, actually, because porcelain veneers are so versatile.

For one, if you have minor chips or cracks on your teeth, porcelain veneers can address that issue. If you have a major stain on your teeth that is too severe for traditional teeth whitening treatment, porcelain veneers can remedy that. Say you have teeth that are slightly uneven or misaligned. Guess what? Porcelain veneers is great for that as well.

We mentioned earlier that porcelain veneers are great options for smile makeover treatments. A smile makeover, in case you weren’t aware, refers to a combination of cosmetic dentistry and restorative dentistry treatments combined in order to enhance the overall appearance and health of a smile. Given the versatility of porcelain veneers, in some cases they are used quite frequently to enhance a smile.
