Am I a Candidate for Porcelain Veneers?

Porcelain veneers are an ideal dental treatment for a range of candidates, but they are not always the best solution for everyone. Dr. Huefner is an experienced cosmetic dentist in Orange County, and he can assess your personal needs to help you determine if porcelain veneers are right for you.

Porcelain veneers can be used to correct many dental flaws including:

  • Chips or cracks
  • Gaps
  • Asymmetry
  • Discoloration

To be a candidate for porcelain veneers, you should have generally healthy teeth that are fully developed, and you should have realistic expectations about what porcelain veneers can and cannot accomplish. You may not be a good candidate if:

  • You suffer from severe misalignment
  • You grind or clench your teeth
  • You have inadequate tooth enamel
  • You suffer from periodontal disease or extensive tooth decay
  • You have other major dental or general health conditions

If you do not meet the criteria for porcelain veneer candidacy or your cosmetic dentistry needs will be better served by an alternative treatment, Dr. Huefner will discuss this with you at your consultation.

If you believe you may be a candidate for porcelain veneers and you would like to learn more about how to proceed with your treatment, contact Dr. Norman Huefner General Dentistry & Cosmetic Dentistry at 949-495-6322 to schedule a consultation with one of our experienced cosmetic dentists. We also serve patients in Irvine, Laguna Niguel, Mission Viejo, Newport Beach and Santa Margarita.
