Are Veneers Right For You?
The guidance and insight of your dentist can help you through a variety of oral health decisions. Fortunately, Dr. Matthew Wallengren and his team take the time to teach their patients about the state of their oral health and how best to achieve optimal wellness, function, and esthetics.
It’s Dr. Wallengren’s focus on education and comprehensive restorative care that has helped countless patients decide whether veneers were right for them. Dr. Wallengren’s diagnostic tools like intra-oral, extra-oral and radiographic exams will help you make the most informed decision possible. Additionally, this veneer cheat sheet will give you an understanding of the procedure and whether or not it’s a good fit for you.
What are Veneers?
Veneers are lightweight shells of dental ceramic that clasp the front of your teeth. There are two main types of veneers, porcelain and composite. The procedure falls under “cosmetic dentistry” and is meant to cover chipped or stained teeth, creating a more aesthetic façade. They’re a great choice for anyone who wants to remedy a jagged row of teeth or unsightly stains, but whose condition is too severe for dental inlays or whitening.
Procedure And Cost
Installing veneers requires shaving the front of the tooth 1/50th of an inch, making an impression of the exterior, and then fixing the customized veneer to the divot. After discussing your budget, the final consideration is whether or not you’re an ideal candidate for the procedure.
While the veneer procedure isn’t particularly invasive, those with highly brittle teeth or overly decayed teeth may want to explore alternative options. Since your dentist will be shaving away some of your tooth, any condition that complicates this process will likely disqualify you.
