Are Porcelain Veneers Right for Me?

The best way to know if you are a good candidate for porcelain veneers is to schedule an appointment with our experienced cosmetic dentist, Dr. Nathe. During your initial consultation, Dr. Nathe will assess your oral condition and recommend the solutions that can best meet your personal goals. Generally speaking, ideal candidates for porcelain veneers will:

  • Be free of gum disease and infections
  • Not clench or grind teeth: Although they are durable, porcelain veneers can wear over time
  • Practice good oral hygiene: Prior to adhering the veneers to your teeth, Dr. Nathe will need to remove a small amount of enamel, which could expose fillings and increase sensitivity
