Who Is a Good Candidate for Dental Veneers?

Dental veneers at LN Dental Centre is the best solution available to help you cover these small imperfections effectively and safely. Many people own a forced smile because they are unconfident to smile, just as some front teeth are crooked or the teeth are not bright white and uneven color.

What is “veneer”?

The word “Veneer” comes from the French borrowing word “fournir,” which means “furniture decoration.” The medical dictionary defines it as a thin plastic or porcelain cover that adheres to the surface of a damaged or aesthetically imperfect tooth.

Typically, a small amount of tooth enamel, the tooth’s outer cover, is removed to allow enough space to attach veneer. It is glued to the front part of the tooth to adjust the color, shape, size, or length of the teeth.

Who is suitable to get dental veneers?

Veneers can cover one tooth or multiple teeth, which may be defective. The veneers’ designations are also varied with the ultimate aim to achieve aesthetic harmony and functional optimum.

For most current veneers, the six-upper-front teeth veneer is the choice that many people expect because it can bring back a bright, beautiful, and even smile in the shortest time. Other cases can be mentioned, such as people with small teeth, large gaps between teeth, or those who are unwilling to have orthodontic treatment because of time or costs.

Besides, some people with fewer smiles due to congenital or worn teeth due to near-function habits are also subject to this treatment. Advanced veneer types with skinny size (0.5 mm) are indicated for cases of mildly stained or chipped teeth, little fracture at the edge of bitting.

1.Stained teeth:

  • Bone marrow treatment
  • Drug-induced staining (tetracycline)
  • Fluorosis
  • Resin filler
  • Other cause

2.Worn down to the enamel

3. Chipped or broken enamel

4. Misshaped, uneven, or unshaped with other teeth

5. A large gap between two teeth

Who is unsuitable to get dental veneers?

The veneers will be glued on the enamel of the real tooth. When teeth have lost their substance too large (due to broken, worn, or restored the old ones), it is probably not the most reasonable choice.

The contraindications of veneer include:

1.Insufficient enamel

2.Only blade surface veneer

3.The space between the teeth is too much

4.Poor oral hygiene

5.Habits of near-function (teeth grinding, teeth clenching)

6.Misshaped or crowded teeth from moderate to severe level.
