5 People Who Are Good Candidates for Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers have come a long way in the last 30 years and now provide a solution for people experiencing a large array of dental issues or abnormalities. Are you wondering if veneers are a good option for you? Here are five types of people who would be perfect candidates for veneer implants.


1. Someone With Misaligned or Irregular Teeth

For teeth that are extremely misaligned, more extensive orthodontic procedures may be required. However, for minor alignment issues veneers can help to create the perfect, balanced smile. By customizing the size, shape and color, the veneers can be flawlessly combined within the rest of your teeth.


2. Someone With Gapped Teeth

Many of us have gone through the childhood phase when our teeth were changing, gaps were common and often times we were even missing a few teeth. What might be considered "cute" as a child, may not feel the same way as an adult. For some of us, we simply weren't able to outgrow the gaps and need some sort of dental procedure to fix them. Veneers can do exactly that by replacing the surrounding teeth at the located of the gap with perfectly sized and aligned veneers.


3. Someone With Worn Down or Chipped Teeth

Chipped, broken or worn teeth cannot only affect your self-confidence but they can also be a severe hindrance to activities like eating. Whether you suffered trauma or just natural wear and tear, porcelain veneers can be constructed to match your tooth or the rest of your teeth to create the most seamless and cohesive smile.


4. Someone Unhappy or Self Conscious About Their Smile

Sometimes people are simply just unhappy with the way their smile and teeth look. There are a number of reasons why you might not be happy with your smile, but if it has a negative affect on your daily life, than porcelain veneers can provide you the confidence and piece-of-mind that you’re looking for.


5. Someone With Permanently Stained or Discolored Teeth

People may experience yellow or off-colored teeth for a number of reasons, whether from the natural aging process where the enamel of the teeth is gently worn away or smoking or drinking certain liquids which permanently stains the teeth. Or maybe your experience is that you simply haven’t taken care of your teeth like you should. Whatever your reasoning is, veneers can give you that white and bright smile that you've always wanted.
