Do You Need Veneers?

Do You Need Veneers?

February 10, 2023

Veneers are thin coverings that are placed over the teeth to provide a more uniform and aesthetically pleasing look. There are many reasons why an individual might want to get veneers. The great news is that Smiling Oak Dentistry specializes in cosmetic dentistry in Mount Pleasant, SC, and we would be more than happy to assist you in deciding whether getting veneers can be beneficial for you.

Our attending dentist will carefully examine your teeth and advise if you require dental veneers. Some of the situations that qualify you for veneers include the following.

Teeth Unresponsive to Whitening Treatments

Teeth whitening is a procedure that many choose to undergo for a brighter looking smile. Teeth whitening treatments are highly effective and patients are often responsive to the process. However, there are certain types of teeth stains, such as intrinsic stains which affect the teeth particularly in the enamel layer, that do not respond well to in-office whitening.

If you’ve got teeth stains that are resistant to treatment, there are veneers multiple types that you can choose from as a viable option.

Cracked Tooth

Accidents and other unfortunate situations can result in cracked or chipped teeth. Our family dentistry clinic provides high-quality veneers for kids as young as 16 years of age.

Gaps in Teeth

Veneers can be a great option if you have minor gaps in your teeth and do not want braces. We also sometimes recommend one visit crowns (same day crowns).

Misshapen or Worn Down Teeth

If you just have misshapen teeth and would like to correct it, veneers can be the way to go. But if you’ve got missing or completely damaged teeth that need to be removed, look into getting dental implants instead.

It’s worth noting that veneers are not a great option for people with gum diseases, tooth decay, or those who grind their teeth at night. If you have questions, our cosmetic dentistry specialists are always ready to help.
