Am I a Candidate for Veneers?
Though many desire veneers for their aesthetic appeal, they can provide other benefits, too. Keep reading to find out if veneers might be right for you.

Achieving a radiant smile is a desire for many, but it's not always something we naturally possess. Over time, even well-maintained teeth can experience wear, discoloration, and damage, leaving us dissatisfied with our smiles due to minor imperfections.

At Sabrina E. Mickel DDS & Associates, we're dedicated to ensuring you love your smile. Porcelain veneers present a solution to common dental issues, often applied in just one procedure. Let's look at the dental challenges that make veneers an excellent option for you.

What veneers can do for you

Veneers, whether made of a thin layer of porcelain or composite resin, are custom-fit and bonded to your teeth. They effectively conceal cosmetic imperfections and physical damage, allowing you to resume your normal eating and drinking habits on the same day – with no downtime.

Determining if you’re a suitable candidate for veneers

Before proceeding with veneers, a consultation with Dr. Mickel and our team is essential. Addressing issues like tooth decay, cavities, and gum disease is a prerequisite. Once these concerns are resolved, veneers become an ideal method to perfect your smile. 

You can anticipate experiencing the many benefits veneers have to offer, including:

1. Whiter and brighter teeth

Veneers, tailored to your specifications, empower you to choose the desired level of whiteness. Opting for a shade slightly brighter than your natural tooth color achieves a striking and natural appearance that grabs the attention of others.

2. Crooked teeth

If you're dissatisfied with slightly crooked teeth, and traditional orthodontic options aren't your preference, veneers offer an excellent alternative. They can be shaped to create an even surface, edges, and spacing, resulting in a row of straight and uniform teeth, giving you a beautiful smile.

3. Uneven spacing or inconsistent shape

Veneers are designed to subtly close gaps between your teeth, boosting your confidence. Inconsistent tooth shapes, whether pointy, round, or flat, can be harmonized with veneers, producing a uniform and natural-looking outcome.

4. Cracks or chips

While small cracks or chips may not pose a direct oral health threat, they can compromise your tooth strength. Veneers act as a robust protective layer, providing support while concealing any visible damage.

If you've grappled with these dental issues, you likely qualify as a candidate for dental veneers. To book a comprehensive evaluation at Sabrina E.
