“Am I a candidate for porcelain veneers?” Actually, you may be asking yourself that question if you are visiting this website. If you are unhappy with the appearance of your smile and are ready to do something about it, porcelain veneers may be an excellent treatment option for you.
Veneers are used to hide certain flaws in the smile, or to completely transform the smile as part of a smile makeover. If you are ready to get a smile you’ll be proud to show off, you are likely an excellent candidate for porcelain veneers!
USING PORCELAIN VENEERS TO HIDE FLAWS
Porcelain veneers are coverings that are attached to the front of each tooth. Custom-created using thin layers of natural-looking porcelain, they can be used to disguise a wide range of smile problems.
Teeth that are too small, misshapen, cracked, or otherwise flawed can easily be hidden with veneers.
Veneers enable patients to get a bigger smile that is symmetrical and more proportionate to the entire face.
Smiles that are stained and do not respond to bleaching treatments can instantly become much whiter with the help of veneers.
USING PORCELAIN VENEERS AS PART OF A SMILE MAKEOVER
During a smile makeover, the patient desires a dramatic change in the appearance of the smile. Because they make such a big difference in the smile, porcelain veneers are often used during smile makeovers.
Porcelain veneers give patients the ability to make decisions about their smiles and determine exactly what they’d like the end results to look like. Veneers are completely customizable; patients get to decide the shape, shade, and size of their veneers.
Do you want a subtle yet beautiful smile? Are you looking for a bright, white, attention-grabbing grin? Porcelain veneers can be as flashy (or as muted) as you would like.
Patients can use porcelain veneers in addition to a gum lift to obtain a perfectly symmetrical smile.
THINGS TO CONSIDER BEFORE GETTING VENEERS
Of course, there are a few things patients should take into consideration before

Dr. Yelizarov must remove some tooth structure before applying the veneers to prevent the veneers from appearing bulky. This is a permanent change; once tooth structure is removed, it cannot be replaced. Consider whether this is something you are OK with.
Know that while your porcelain veneers will last a long time when cared for properly, they will not last a lifetime. Your porcelain veneers may break, and they will need to be replaced at some point down the road.
The only real way to tell if veneers are a good choice for you is to visit a cosmetic dentist who can give you a thorough exam and determine whether veneers are the best treatment option.
Porcelain veneers can make a huge difference in the appearance of your smile and your entire face. Wondering whether porcelain veneers are the right choice for you?
