When are Veneers the Right Option?

Pure beautyDental veneers are a form of camouflage for teeth that have fallen into disrepair. Veneers are made from composite resin, or more commonly from high-quality porcelain that mimics the light-reflecting properties of natural teeth. Coverage provided by veneers is completely viable, and the prerequisites for getting it are not many.

Ideal candidates for veneers will have any or all of the following:

• Crooked teeth
• Gapped or crowded teeth
• Teeth stained from tobacco or tetracycline
• Teeth with cracks or fractures
• Teeth that differ in size and length

Veneers provide uniformity. Even above-average smiles can have some discrepancies. This is why many candidates choose to get only one or two veneers, to max out their smile potential. Depending on how many teeth you show when you smile, you may not need a full arch. And since veneers are priced on a per-tooth basis, you know exactly what you’re getting beforehand.

If you’re considering veneers, understand that your teeth must be in reasonably good health. This is not a cosmetic question, but an orthodontic one. If your teeth are severely rotated or misshapen, or if your teeth are above-average in size, you may be better suited to other services.
