Who is a good candidate?
Most patients with good oral health are candidates for prepless veneers. The procedure can quickly and easily address a wide variety of cosmetic concerns. People who require traditional veneers or another type of treatment may be patients who:
- Have severely cracked or worn-down teeth – In this case, more substantial restorative treatments that reinforce or replace damaged teeth, such as dental crowns, may be needed.
- Are planning to undergo orthodontic treatment – Although veneers can correct slight misalignment, veneers are not compatible with future orthodontic treatment, which may be recommended for some patients.
- Have teeth that are very close together or overlap – In such cases, tooth alteration may be required to accommodate the veneers, making patients better candidates for traditional veneers.
