Am I A Good Candidate for Veneers?

Am I A Good Candidate for Veneers?

Dental veneers date all the way back to 1928 when they made their first appearance in Hollywood to perfect an actor’s teeth on set. But they’ve come a long way since then, even if the original concept remains unchanged.

The earliest versions of veneers were temporary, and actors could pop them off when filming came to an end for the day. However, modern veneers offer more permanent solutions, though they usually need replacement at some point. To get an all-natural look, we remove a small amount of enamel from the surface of your tooth to ensure a perfect, bulk-free fit. 

Peter Gambertoglio, DDS, uses veneers to address numerous dental issues at his practice in Spring, Texas. He considers these factors when determining who’s a good candidate for veneers.

When veneers offer the best solutions

Veneers conceal the visible portion of your tooth with a wafer-thin shell of porcelain. Since they cover the front of your tooth, they can completely change its shape, color, and overall appearance. And you can use them for one tooth or to transform your entire smile while leaving you with stunning, natural-looking teeth. 

This versatility makes a veneer the perfect solution for correcting several dental problems, such as:

But veneers can do far more than correct cosmetic issues these days. 

Beyond creating a picture-perfect smile, they can also repair damage like chips or cracks and protect teeth from additional damage. And, they offer straightforward, predictable solutions for anyone, as long as you have good oral hygiene and healthy gums.

What to expect from veneers

First, Dr. Gambertoglio discusses your dental concerns and performs a comprehensive exam. This process also involves digital X-rays and molds to get a detailed image of your mouth.

After gaining a complete understanding of your dental issues and oral health, Dr. Gambertoglio makes personalized recommendations to help you achieve the smile of your dreams, including veneers.

Dr. Gambertoglio works closely with a custom dental laboratory nearby that specializes in professional color enhancement techniques to ensure your veneers are virtually identical to natural teeth. He helps you choose the perfect color and shape, and you can head home with custom-made temporary veneers after a single appointment.

When the lab finishes crafting your permanent veneer, you return to our office for a final fitting and placement. Once you’re satisfied with the look and fit, Dr. Gambertoglio permanently bonds the veneer in place.

If you practice good oral hygiene on a daily basis and see Dr. Gambertoglio for regular cleanings, you can expect your new veneer to last at least 10 years
