The art of adding materials to teeth for strengthening and cosmetic purposes is not a new dental concept. Fashioning teeth for an amalgam/composite filling or a crown are treatments performed every day. However, in both of the treatments above the procedure calls for a significant reduction of the tooth. Herein lies the chief advantage of veneers. Do you have a frontal tooth (or teeth) that negatively affect the appearance of your smile?

When Are Veneers The Best Option?
Are you wondering if you are a suitable candidate for porcelain veneers? If so, here are the most common situations that allow for veneer treatments.
Stained Teeth. Stains that do not respond to tooth whitening solutions can be masked with veneers. Dr. Mehta can test frontal tooth stains to make sure that they cannot be addressed with whitening before you opt for porcelain veneers.
Minor Tooth Imperfections. The versatility of veneers allows for imperfections (whether natural or by trauma) to be concealed. Our team has corrected the appearance of teeth chips, cracks, and other flaws. Porcelain veneers are one of the best treatments that result in natural looking teeth.
What Prevents Patients From Veneer Options?
Typically, most situations where patients have functional teeth, veneers can be implemented. However, problems with oral hygiene can present problems that make veneer procedures difficult. Patients that have such problems can overcome this obstacle with an improved oral hygiene regimen in addition to professional dental cleanings. In time, veneers may be used to correct oral cosmetic imperfections.
