Giving your smile a whole new look has never been easier. Dental veneers are a great dental treatment option for patients looking to renovate their smile while maintaining their natural teeth. The professionals at Center for Cosmetic and Sedation Dentistry in Lawrenceville, GA, are well versed in the veneer process and can offer helpful, professional insight in who the best candidates are.
Understanding Dental Veneers
Veneers are thin shells of porcelain that are custom made to match each patient’s teeth in terms of shape, size, length, etc. A Lawrenceville veneers specialist, such as Dr. Nooredin Nurani, Dr. Hannah Oh, Dr. Ravikath Ravik or Dr. Michelle Paterson, will adhere these veneers to the surface of your teeth. Veneers are mostly used to mask any discoloration, chips or cracks on a patient’s natural teeth, and are used to adjust the length, shape and color of the teeth.
Am I A Candidate for Veneers?
The best candidates are those who fit the following criteria:
- They have severe stains: Teeth whitening can help with mild discoloration, but dental veneers are the best at masking more severe ones.
- They have minor imperfections: This means they have small cracks or chips that make veneers a great and successful treatment option.
- They are in good oral health: This is important because veneers will only be successful on those with healthy gums and teeth.
- They have adequate tooth enamel: This is important as dental veneers adhere directly to enamel and if a patient doesn’t have enough, they won’t have a good surface to adhere to.
