Aesthetic flaws of any type can detract from your entire smile. Whether a tooth is discolored, crooked, or chipped, even the smallest imperfection can make you less likely to share your smile with others. Fortunately, highly skilled cosmetic dentist Dr. John F. Rink can rejuvenate your smile with porcelain veneers - thin ceramic shells which are bonded to the front surface of treated teeth. He can help you understand what makes patients good candidates for veneers during a consultation at our Charleston practice. Contact us today to schedule your appointment and find out whether veneers are right for you.
Most patients who want to conceal cosmetic imperfections are great candidates for porcelain veneers. Veneers cover the front surface of a tooth to effectively mask blemishes, so in addition to aesthetic concerns, patients should have otherwise healthy teeth. If advanced decay or gum disease is undermining your oral wellbeing, these issues will first need to be treated before veneers can be placed. In addition to having good dental health, patients should not plan on receiving orthodontic treatment after receiving their veneers.
Porcelain veneers may be the ideal solution if you are looking to correct:
While you are meeting with Dr. Rink during your consultation, you may be interested in finding out if you are a candidate for prep-less veneers. These veneers are similar to traditional restorations, but the ultra-thin shells mean patients require little to no alteration to their teeth prior to the placement procedure. For this reason, patients typically have the option of removing their veneers in the future without the need for a restorative treatment to strengthen their smile.
