Am I a good candidate for dental veneers?

With all of the red carpet, celebrity smiles on television and social media these days, you might be having some smile envy. Few people are born with a perfect set of bright white, straight, uniform teeth. Veneers can give you that perfect look, however.

Porcelain veneers are incredibly versatile. They can cover a damaged, discolored, or oddly shaped tooth. Veneers can also improve slightly misaligned teeth without the need for orthodontics. We can place a single veneer to cover one tooth or create a whole new smile that makes you Hollywood ready while looking completely natural.

A complete examination is required to determine whether dental veneers are an appropriate restoration to use. While veneers are often quite effective, they do have limitations. For example, veneers cannot predictably mask darkly discolored teeth, teeth that are moderately to severely misaligned, and teeth that have existing large fillings.

If your teeth are stained, you may wish to whiten your teeth prior to beginning any restorative dentistry. This will allow us to create brighter veneers and an overall whiter appearance.

If veneers are not the best solution for you, Dr. Olvera will go over other treatment options that can give you the smile of your dreams.
