Who Is a Candidate for Porcelain Veneers?

Who is a Candidate for Porcelain Veneers?candidate for porcelain veneers

Porcelain veneers are a very popular option when it comes to cosmetic dentistry today. People know just how important it is to make a good first impression. If you have chipped or cracked teeth, or if you have large gaps in your teeth, this becomes more difficult. In many cases, people who have these types of problems with their teeth will have low self-esteem, which can affect them in a range of ways. However, getting veneers has the potential to change that. You need to make sure you are a candidate for porcelain veneers though.

What Can Porcelain Veneers Fix?

People use veneers to handle many different types of dental issues. They are helpful for those who have stained and discolored teeth, as well as those who have cracks or chips in their teeth. They can also help to fix gaps, poorly shaped teeth and misalignment of your smile. These are one of the most versatile options for cosmetic dentistry.

What Makes a Good Candidate?

Even though you might want to have veneers, they may not be the right choice for you. It is important to make sure you are a good candidate for porcelain veneers. Ideally, your teeth will be healthy and free of decay. You should not suffer from gum disease, and you should not be a person who grinds his or her teeth. The tooth that will hold the veneer should also have health enamel for preparation. In addition, it is helpful if your bite is aligned properly.

I am always excited to go to the dentist now that I go to Chesterfield Family Dental. They always answer any questions I have and are so friendly and nice. I am always so comfortable here, which is saying alot because I have peridontal disease and the treatment for it doesn't always feel so great, but when Im here, the hygenist makes me forget all about it!

The staff is so warm and welcoming from the moment you walk in the door. Even though my son is a bit apprehensive about going to the dentist since he had to have four teeth pulled in the past, he is still always happy to see them. Dr. Buzbee and his staff are so great and patient with him. He leaves with a smile on his face and no cavities!

I have been a patient of Dr. Buzbee for as long as I can remember. The Staff at Chesterfield Family Dental is always greet you when you walk in and they seem to know everyone by name. The care you get for the staff is always great and all seem to be the best of the best at what they do. I have always recommend anyone I know to go see them and will continue to do so in the future.
