Who is A Good Candidate for Dental Veneers?

The dental veneer is one of the best cosmetic dentistry types that improve your smile. Veneers are the thin custom-made shells of tooth-colored materials (especially porcelain) to cement the front surfaces of your natural teeth. It’s an easy way to address a variety of physical and aesthetic problems of your teeth.

The result of this cosmetic dentistry is great and is very safe. But, if you are interested in the procedure and planning to get it done, you should consult with the Veneer dentist to know whether you are a good candidate for the procedure or not. Though every individual can go for the process, there are a few factors decided by the dentist to make the process smooth and successful.

Here, in this blog, we have mentioned a few signs that show you are a good candidate for dental veneers.

  • If your teeth are severely stained

Tooth whitening is the first step in treating external discoloration but it works on mild to moderate conditions. The dental veneer is a step ahead that helps in treating extremely dark stains. It covers up the stains along with internal discoloration from old fillings.

  • If your wish to fix several cosmetic issues

Not just discoloration, you can fix other dental problems like mildly crooked teeth, a chipped tooth, or several stained teeth with one cosmetic dental procedure. If you do not use dental veneers, you will require three separate procedures to achieve the desired result plus you will increase your treatment expense.

  • If your overall oral health is good

The Veneer dentist will advice for veneers only if your teeth and gums are healthy. If they find your oral health is not good and strong, they might drop the plan. Sometimes, to make the procedure applicable, the dentists perform restorative treatment before cementing the veneers. The restorative treatments fill the gaps between the teeth.

  • If you have sufficient tooth enamel

Cementing the dental veneers on the external surfaces means removing some of the enamel to make room for porcelain veneers. The dentist will only be able to remove the enamel if there is an underlying layer to create a strong bonding surface. And, for that, you should have sufficient enamel in your oral structure.

  • If you do not grind or clench your teeth

The veneers will get damage if you have a habit of teeth grinding and clenching. The porcelain veneers are prone to damages if there is huge pressure on them. Not only grinding and clinching, but the veneers will also chip and get fractured if you chew your nails, chew ice, or use your teeth a tool on the hard objects. If you are ready to drop these habits, you can become a good candidate for dental veneers procedure.

  • If you practice good oral hygiene

The dental veneers will cover the stains but, it does not mean you do not have to follow any oral hygiene. You should opt for this cosmetic dental procedure only if you are ready to practice good oral hygiene. You have to keep your teeth healthy with regular brushing, flossing, and visits to the dentist. If you do not do so, the veneers will not last for long.

If the signal is green for all the signs mentioned above, you are a good candidate for the dental veneers procedure. But, do not forget to consult the dentist and know the overall dental health before the procedure
