Am I a Good Candidate for Dental Veneers?

When you do not feel confident about the appearance of your smile, our staff at West Bridgewater Dental can offer porcelain veneers to enhance your teeth. A cosmetic veneer is a small shell that's secured to the front of your teeth once a portion of your enamel is shaved off for strong adhesion. The result is a radiant, straight, and balanced smile. During your appointment in West Bridgewater, MA, we will look at your teeth and gums to figure out if you’re a candidate for this personalized dentistry service.

How to know if you're a good candidate for veneers

You might be a great candidate for cosmetic veneers if you have a few teeth that need any enhancement. Cosmetic veneers are ideal for the front teeth. It's also recommended to have healthy oral structures to receive porcelain veneers. Dental veneers can be beneficial for multiple individuals with crooked teeth. During your veneers consultation, someone on our team can evaluate your teeth to decide if veneers will work for you and your dental health. Not every person with mismatched teeth will be a great candidate for cosmetic veneers.

Issues that porcelain veneers address

Dental veneers are used to correct:

  • Gaps in between the teeth
  • Crooked teeth
  • Oddly shaped teeth

How do dental veneers work?

Our staff customizes every individual's porcelain veneers to suit the length, tone, and shape of their natural teeth. The instant the veneers are placed on your teeth, they produce lasting results. Cosmetic veneers can also help maintain compromised teeth. Following your private consultation, we will take impressions of your teeth to create your one-of-a-kind porcelain veneers. As soon as your veneers are finished, we will remove a small bit of your enamel. This enables the veneers to bond better and results in a natural-looking outcome. Minor adjustments may be made after your appointment to make sure the porcelain shells are comfortable.

Cleaning your porcelain veneers

Although porcelain veneers are strongly bonded, they are not indestructible. Veneers might break if you aren’t gentle or use unneeded pressure. Taking care of veneers is easy with an effective oral care schedule that consists of brushing twice a day and flossing once a day. Having a regular dental examination and professional cleaning schedule is also essential to preserve your oral health.

Other options for aligning your teeth

Although veneers made with porcelain are a reliable approach to help the teeth seem straighter without metal braces, there are additional effective dentistry solutions that can fix small cracks. Tooth bonding and contouring is used to rebuild a tooth to look normal once more and is more cost-effective than veneers. Invisalign® trays can be used by patients who have minor to severe spacing and want to alter the alignment of their teeth, which is something porcelain veneers cannot do.
