Am I a good candidate for veneers?
Most patients who have healthy teeth and gums but who want to cover up cosmetic issues are good candidates for veneers. Start by making an appointment for a consultation about veneers at our Indianapolis dental office German Church Road Family Dentistry. Dr. Dane Uhl will go over your medical and dental history and conduct an examination to determine if veneers are the cosmetic dentistry option to improve your smile.
Veneers are ultra-thin, translucent covers that go over the fronts of the teeth that show when you smile. You can get one veneer if you need to cover up one damaged tooth, or you can get a full set to change your entire smile. In general, veneers can be used for:
- Covering up teeth that are crooked or misaligned
- Lengthening the look of teeth that are too short
- Camouflaging teeth that are gapped, cracked, or otherwise aesthetically unappealing
Veneers can change the look of your smile in just a couple of visits to the dentist, so it is a popular cosmetic dentistry treatment. Many of your favorite Hollywood celebrities, whose perfect smiles you admire, are likely the recipients of veneers. We were not all born with a perfect smile, but most of us can have one through the artistry and science of cosmetic dentistry!
