Who is The Ideal Patient For Veneers?
Last medically reviewed by Dr Sam Jethwa: February 1, 2021
Veneers are an enticing dental treatment for those looking to rejuvenate their smile.
Improvements in have meant that veneers are more natural-looking, more durable and more effective than ever, which is why more and more people are choosing this as an option to target their smile insecurities.
If you have ever felt bad about your appearance, you will know the hugely detrimental impact this can have on you.
For those who are unhappy with the way their teeth look, they may feel uncomfortable smiling, laughing or taking pictures.
This can have a huge impact on your confidence when it comes to your work and social life.
For some patients who are unhappy with their teeth, veneers can be the best option, however, there are other cosmetic procedures available.
Alternative options include:
How do I know if veneers are suitable for me?
If you are considering getting veneers, we recommend arranging an evaluation meeting with one of our dentists so we can decipher whether or not the treatment is right for you.
An increasing number of people are getting veneers.
This is because the treatment provides long-lasting, effective results and patients don’t have to go through a lengthy procedure such as having braces, but still end up with beautifully straight teeth.
Are your issues mainly minor cosmetic issues?
Veneers are most effective when used to treat minor cosmetic issues, such as:
- Discoloured teeth
- Chipped or broken teeth
- Uneven or squint teeth
- Teeth with gaps
- Teeth too large or small for the mouth
Do you have multiple cosmetic issues?
Veneers are a great way to target multiple cosmetic issues at once.
- Is teeth staining a big issue for you? If your main issue is stained teeth, veneers are a rapid and impressive recolouring option! For people who enjoy food and drink that are known for staining teeth (e.g. coffee, wine, coca-cola or tomato-based sauces) veneers are a great option because they stain a lot less easily than natural teeth. This means patients can target their old stains while preventing new stains from occurring.
- Do you generally have good oral health? Before considering cosmetic dentistry it is important to ensure you have healthy teeth and gums. You may simply need to have some restorative treatment prior to your veneer fitting, so it is good to enquire professional advice about this.
- Do you have an adequate amount of tooth enamel? If you only have a small amount of tooth enamel, then it means the filing process could damage your teeth and therefore we would recommend an alternative solution.
