Who is a good candidate for veneers?

If you have broken or cracked teeth, wide gaps, or tooth staining, you may consider dental veneers in Northeast Philadelphia to improve their appearance. Veneers are an excellent choice for these issues because they hide imperfections and leave you with a gorgeous, symmetrical smile.

You are a good candidate for teeth veneers if:

You Have Healthy Teeth and Gums

Any cosmetic dentistry starts with a foundation of healthy teeth and gums. If you have cavities or gum disease, you can still get veneers, but we need to resolve any underlying issues first.

You Have a Healthy Dental Bite

Veneers can correct the appearance of mildly crooked teeth, but an unbalanced dental bite can affect the lifespan of your restorations. Bite problems typically go hand in hand with teeth grinding and clenching that can crack or break your veneers.

You Practice Good Oral Hygiene

Veneers can’t get cavities, but the underlying teeth can. If this happens, your dentist would need to remove the original veneer to treat the cavity, then customize a new one to replace it. Conscientious brushing and flossing will help ensure this doesn’t happen.
