Are Veneers Good Solutions for All Dental Imperfections?
Posted on 5/23/2018 by Bisson Dentistry
If you have been thinking about improving your smile, you may be wondering what options you have for that cosmetic procedure. Our dentist can explain if veneers are a good solution for dental imperfections in your mouth and whether you're a good candidate to get them.
What are Veneers?
Veneers are a very thin shell that is placed on the front of teeth to hide imperfections. In most cases, veneers are used for cosmetic reasons and can improve the look of crooked teeth, gaps, severely stained teeth, and other issues with the look of your teeth.
Who Can Get Veneers?
Not everyone is a good candidate to get veneers. You need to have good oral health and no serious conditions such as gum disease, gingivitis, tooth decay or teeth clenching or grinding, or an inadequate amount of enamel, to be a candidate for veneers.
Veneers are a great option for patients who want to have a perfect smile, but there are some considerations you need to discuss with our dentist.
The most important one is cost. Veneers can run between $1,000 and $2,000 per tooth and in general are not covered by dental insurance. In addition, veneers are permanent and cannot be removed.
While veneers can match the color and shape of your teeth, they are not fixable, so if you crack one, it needs to be replaced. Some patients complain of increased sensitivity because the procedure involves removing part of the enamel to bond the veneer to the tooth.
Dental veneers are a great alternative for some dental imperfections and are a very popular cosmetic procedure. If you're wondering whether veneers are good solutions for all dental imperfections, your concerns can be addressed at the initial consultation with the cosmetic dentist.
