Are Veneers Right For You?

Veneers consist of a thin, tooth-colored shield a dentist attaches to your teeth using a dental-grade adhesive. They're designed for aesthetic purposes only. For instance, they'll correct an oddly shaded or discolored tooth. They can also be used to reduce spacing if you have minor gaps between your teeth. Dr. Stephen Harris can provide this service and give you the smile you've always dreamed of. However, before coming to his Farmington Hills, MI, office, you may want to know if this procedure is right for you. 

What Veneers Can Do for Your Smile

As briefly noted, veneers can cover up the fact you have an oddly shaped tooth as well as discolored ones. Veneers can also correct oddly sized teeth, gaps, or chipped or cracked teeth.

Who Qualifies for Veneers

Not everyone can walk into our Farmington Hills, MI, practice, and receive veneers. First, Dr. Harris will provide you with a comprehensive dental exam to ensure the procedure is safe for you. For instance, you need to have enough enamel since the practitioner will rough up your natural enamel, so the veneers adhere to your tooth. 

Ideally, the procedure may be right for you if you don't grind your teeth. If you grind or clench your teeth, you risk damaging the veneers. 

Generally, we recommend patients with gingivitis receive treatment first. If you have gum disease, this treatment might not be for you. These conditions make your gums more sensitive. As a result, they might be swollen. They're also more prone to bleeding, which can make bonding the veneers a bit of a challenge. Even taking impressions of your teeth will be more difficult. Crowding could also make veneers not right for you. 

Why Choose Veneers Over Other Correction Methods

It's a more permanent solution than teeth bleaching. Moreover, this option is more convenient than braces or invisible aligners if you only have minor spacing. If you have multiple problems with different teeth, veneers could address them all since it's a versatile option. 

Veneers could be a solution for you for a number of reasons, especially if you don't grind your teeth or have an oral health issue like gum disease. Plus, when you receive this tooth correction method, Dr. Harris, serving Farmington Hills, MI, and the general vicinity will take every step necessary to ensure your veneers look natural and flawless.
