Are Porcelain Veneers Right for YOU?
What do you wear on your wrist? Is it a Rolex or a Timex. Maybe a Fitbit or a Garmin. OR, nothing at all. Only you can research the benefits of getting porcelain veneers and determine their final value to you. The single biggest change will be your smile. If you believe your smile has value in your appearance then let’s ask ourselves a few questions in determining if we should get porcelain veneers.
The Quality of your Teeth
Look in the mirror. Does you smile reveal chipped, cracked or uneven teeth. Are your teeth crooked? Porcelain veneers can even be used to straighten out smiles without the use of the long treatment of braces. Are you teeth stained? Sometimes deep or extensive staining cannot be corrected with professional teeth whitening. Are your teeth in good health? Have you experienced decay, or even had a tooth extracted. That smile is subjective as the watch you wear. We are all different and your oral cavity is no exception. If your teeth are brittle or decayed porcelain veneers may not be the avenue you or your cosmetic dentist wishes to choose.
A Consultation is Essential
Once you have determined you wish to consider porcelain veneers, a planning and consultation session with your cosmetic dentist is absolutely essential. Your cosmetic dentist will lean on his/her experience in walking you through the process. A thorough exam will identify the extent of your oral health. The obvious elements to consider is the level of staining, the alignment of your teeth, obvious chips or broken teeth, the current health of your enamel, and are there existing crowns or bridges to deal with. All of these issues will contribute to the quality of your final product, the life expectancy of your veneers and finally, the cost.
Qualify and Quantify
Remember, you are not going into a retail outlet and picking up something off the shelf. Nor can you return the product upon completion. So your choice of an experienced, certified Cosmetic Dentist may be the biggest contributor to your success. In saying that, an artistic ceramist should be the final addition to your make-over team. Your veneer, when completed, will have a significant impact on your smile, your self-esteem, your level of confidence, and your interaction with everyone around you. It is truly a life-changing event. You may want to consider cutting a corner to save a few dollars. Think twice about the quality of your smile and the duration of that smile. You may think six teeth will suffice, your dentist may suggest eight. This would be the time to error in his/her favor.
Share your Goals
We can’t stress enough the importance of a quality evaluation. At the end of the day you want to make sure you and your cosmetic dentist communicate and are very clear about the process. If done properly, porcelain veneers can be very, very rewarding.
