Am I a Candidate for Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers, sometimes referred to as dental veneers, are used to alter the appearance of teeth that have various types of cosmetic problems. The use of porcelain veneers in is highly effective for people in the Beaverton area who meet certain criteria.
Veneers are designed to enhance the appearance of teeth – not necessarily to improve the health of teeth. In other words, porcelain veneers will not help weak teeth become stronger. Therefore, porcelain veneers are usually considered to be a cosmetic solution that remedies aesthetic imperfections.
Candidates for porcelain veneers:
- Usually have chipped, cracked, stained, unevenly spaced, or unevenly sized teeth
- Cannot have a tooth-grinding habit
- Must have overall healthy teeth with sufficient enamel
- May not have gum disease or tooth decay – unless these problems are resolved prior to veneer placement
During your initial consultation, Dr. Negru will listen carefully to your aesthetic goals and evaluate the condition of your teeth in order to determine whether porcelain veneers are the right option for you.
