Am I a good candidate for dental veneers?

Good dental healthy is a requirement for veneers. If you have any signs of decay or gum disease, these will need to be treated before we can place dental veneers. Additionally, if you suffer from bruxism, a condition that causes grinding and clenching of the teeth, you will need to have your bruxism evaluated and treated before getting veneers since the pressure caused by grinding and clenching can damage the veneers (as well as your own teeth).

Many people think of veneers as an option that is only available to the rich, but this is no longer true! Veneers are becoming more affordable. While veneers are not covered by dental insurance, we can discuss issues like cost and help you find a way to fit veneers in your budget. You deserve to have an attractive smile and feel good about yourself, and if you feel like your teeth are holding you back, investing in veneers might be the right option for you.

Call our office today to schedule an appointment to discuss dental veneers and how they can improve the appearance of your smile.
