Are You a Good Candidate for Dental Veneers?
If you’re unhappy with your smile, it can significantly affect your life. People with anxiety about the appearance of their teeth may be less likely to participate in social activities or find them to be more stressful when they do. Luckily, your local dentist is here to help.
Dr. Mannarino and the rest of our team at Devon Plaza Dental have a wide range of cosmetic dentistry options that can help you feel more confident in your smile and help you improve your overall oral health. One popular option that’s available to you is dental veneers. If you live in Windsor or Lasalle, Ontario, let our team inform you of the advantages of getting veneers from Dr. Mannarino.
What are dental veneers?
Dental veneers are a thin protective layer of porcelain or resin that a dentist can bond to your teeth to replace your natural enamel. Your enamel is essentially the armor of your teeth. It’s a tough substance that makes up the outermost layer of your teeth and protects the dentin and sensitive pulp inside. If your enamel isn’t doing its job, veneers that simulate enamel both in their toughness and their aesthetics are a great option. Typically, after a consultation with your dentist in which you agree that veneers are the right choice for you, it just takes a couple of appointments to fully apply your veneers.
Who is a good candidate for veneers?
There are a lot of reasons to get veneers, including:
• Chipped or broken teeth
• Significant and unsightly tooth staining
• Worn down enamel
• Misaligned teeth
• Troublesome gaps between your teeth
Veneers are an option for anyone who wants to improve their smile and their oral health. If you’re unsure if you qualify as a candidate for veneers, bring it up with your dentist. While veneers are an excellent choice for many people, they are a significant commitment as you won’t be able to remove them once they’re attached. Your dentist may recommend an alternative such as teeth whitening, crowns, or inlays and onlays.
