Who Is a Candidate for Dental Veneers?

Wondering if you're eligible for dental veneers? Thankfully, almost anyone can be a candidate for veneers. If you have small gaps between your teeth, minor tooth alignment problems, misshapen or discolored teeth, or minor cracks or chips in your teeth that you'd like fixed, veneers can provide a convenient fix for your smile. All you need to be eligible for dental veneers is to be in good oral health: so long as your teeth and gums are healthy, you're a candidate for veneers!

Why Veneers?

Porcelain veneers offer a simple, easy fix for a wide range of dental problems. By applying a translucent porcelain shell to the front of each of your teeth, we can completely transform the appearance of your smile, fixing minor issues in both the aesthetics and function of your teeth. Placing veneers is a relatively simple, routine procedure, but it radically alters the appearance of your smile. This makes them an ideal option for people who want a new smile, but don’t want more extensive treatments like dental implants.
