Am I a Candidate for Cosmetic Veneers?
One of the first things we look at when we first meet someone is their smile. How comfortable someone is with giving us a big smile tells us a lot about them, even if we do not recognize that we’ve learned something. Likewise, others will learn about us through our smiles. If you are not as confident as you would like to be with your smile, you may be a candidate for cosmetic veneers.
What Porcelain Veneers Do
Cosmetic veneers are also called porcelain veneers and dental veneers, and they are a common procedure here in New Braunfels. The basic idea is that a thin shell of porcelain is applied to the front of your teeth. This allows your dentist to cover up a world of imperfections, such as:
- Crooked teeth
- Stained teeth
- Worn down teeth
- Chipped or cracked teeth
- Gaps between teeth
- Misshapen or mis-sized teeth
- Slight alignment issues
By covering these issues, cosmetic veneers make it possible for you to have a perfect smile without having to take any drastic measures.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Cosmetic Veneers?
The best candidate for cosmetic veneers will be someone who is very careful to keep their teeth in great shape. They will not have any other gum disease or oral health issues. They do not tend to chew gum or grind their teeth, and they have a properly aligned bite. Their tooth enamel needs to be very strong to support the veneer.
If you meet all these qualities, then chances are you would make a great candidate for cosmetic veneers.
