Are Dental Veneers for You? | Hoboken Dentist

close up smile red lipstickIf your teeth aren’t all you want them to be and you’re looking for a cosmetic alternative to what  is just an ‘okay’ smile-think dental veneers! If you have chips, cracks, and gaps between your teeth? Yes, a great solution for those issues is dental veneers!

Veneers typically utilize porcelain, which is well tolerated by gum tissue, and provides a strong, natural looking surface that matches nearby teeth. However, patients considering veneers should consult their dentist to discuss the possible downsides, such as the fact that they are non-reversible, difficult to repair, and may not be a good choice for patients who have existing dental problems (such as decaying teeth, as the veneer will not solve the problem of decay, and may complicate fillings in the future).

Porcelain veneers are the perfect option to enhance your smile and improve any imperfections. Although not all individuals are good candidates for porcelain veneers.

Veneers are usually placed if patients have the following:

  • Good oral health
  • Health enamel
  • Commitment to oral care

Veneers are not recommend with the following:

  • Tooth Decay
  • Gum disease or Periodontal disease
  • Root canal infection
  • Consistently grind their teeth
  • Consistently clinch their jaw

Veneers won’t erase preexisting issues, therefore an exam is needed to determine if you are a good candidate for veneers. Only a professional can determine whether or not porcelain veneers are the best option to rejuvenate your smile.
