When Veneers Are Not the Right Answer for Your Dental Issue

Posted on 7/23/2020 by Dr. Todd Rogers
Porcelain veneers are ideal for resolving numerous dental issues. They are a permanent and cost-effective solution for covering up discolored or broken teeth and disguising gaps, among other cosmetic issues. Due to veneers, we have seen countless patients achieve the smile of their dreams, building their confidence and sociability. However, they aren't the best treatment solution for everyone who wants to improve their smile. Who Is a Bad Candidate for Veneers? Because veneers cover your existing teeth and need something to bond to, they aren't an immediate solution for patients with missing teeth. In addition, patients with extensive tooth decay aren't good candidates for veneers because it's unwise to cover up the decay and allow it to spread underneath the veneers. Having gum disease also rules out veneers for some patients. Finally, those with a history of grinding their teeth or biting their nails aren't ideal candidates for veneers. What Are Other Options for Bad Candidates? Fortunately, there are solutions for the dental issues that initially prevent patients from being good candidates for veneers. To give a few examples, implants can replace missing teeth, root canals can treat severe tooth decay, there are treatments for reversing gum disease, and mouth guards can prevent damage due to teeth grinding. So, just because you were once a poor candidate for veneers, doesn't mean we can't make you a good one. How Long Do Veneers Last? On average, porcelain veneers will last 10 to 15 years. Just like your natural teeth, however, veneers are susceptible to damage. If your veneer comes off or breaks, save the missing pieces and schedule a visit to our office. We can offer alternative options, including dental bonding or a dental crown. If you think you may be a good candidate for veneers, whether immediately or after preparatory procedures, please contact our office to schedule an exam....
