Who Is the Best Candidate for Porcelain Veneers?

At Comprehensive Dental Care, Dr. Steven E. Holbrook and his team can help patients transform their smile into a striking, attractive asset. When patients are considering cosmetic restoration of their smile, they are often introduced to an effective, affordable, and easy solution for imperfections on the front of the teeth called porcelain veneers.

What is a porcelain veneer?

Veneers are used to cover common dental imperfections that may be present in the smile. These imperfections may include:

  • Gaps between teeth
  • Broken or chipped teeth
  • Misaligned teeth
  • Unusually shaped teeth
  • Permanently stained teeth

When these issues are impacting the overall appearance of the smile and are making patients feel self-conscious about their appearance, porcelain veneers can help. These restorations are bonded onto the front of the natural tooth to disguise the imperfections that are present. Veneers are matched in color, shape, and size of the patient’s existing teeth to ensure they look as natural as possible when placed.

Who is a candidate for porcelain veneers?

Dr. Steven E. Holbrook can use porcelain veneers for most patients who want a fast and effective solution to imperfections of the smile. To determine candidacy, a dental evaluation is performed, during which the dentist will take x-rays to check the health of the smile and perform a physical evaluation. Patients may also take this time to learn about other options that can be used to address these imperfections, such as:

  • Orthodontic treatment
  • Professional teeth bleaching
  • Composite resin bonding

When patients have a variety of options to choose from, they have more control over the journey they take to a more beautiful smile!
