Am I a Candidate for Teeth Veneers?
Cosmetic Veneers For Denver Patients
Are you looking for a smile makeover? Do you have crooked teeth? A chipped tooth? Is there a persistent stain that whitening just won’t remove? Cosmetic veneers may be the option for you!
Teeth veneers are wafer-thin shells that are bonded to the surface of your tooth. They can help correct everything from poorly shaped, crooked teeth to a chipped and broken tooth, with a simple procedure.
The shell placed over your teeth, often made of porcelain, is scratch and stain resistant and the teeth veneers last a long time, with adequate care.
“But,” you ask, “are cosmetic veneers for me?”
That’s an excellent question. Veneers are not the best solution for every tooth issue, so let’s go over some important factors in determining if veneers are right for you:
Are your teeth healthy? Do you have tooth decay or other dental issues that might affect the tooth? A broken tooth is fine, but if a crack threatens the integrity of your tooth, or if you have decay, then we will want to look at other options.
Do you suffer from gum disease? If the answer is no, then perfect!
Do you grind or clench your teeth? For some of us, stress manifests itself in the grinding of teeth. If you do grind your teeth, this could damage the veneers.
Do you have a properly aligned bite? Along with clenching your teeth, an improperly aligned bite could damage the veneer.
Is there enough healthy tooth enamel to support the tooth? Without that tooth enamel, veneers cannot be properly bonded.
If you’ve taken a look at these questions and feel confident that veneers are the answer, we’d love to help you have that smile makeover in Denver.
