5 Signs You May Be a Candidate for Porcelain Veneers Uptown Dallas’ Silk Dental Provides

Looking at getting some of the most high-end porcelain veneers Uptown Dallas has to offer, but not sure whether you qualify? We’ve complied a 5-step list to help our patients understand some of the keys to being a good candidate for porcelain veneers:

  • You truly desire a more beautiful smile. It’s one thing to go out and decide to want a better smile one day, but to be a real candidate for some of the most realistic-looking porcelain veneers Uptown Dallas has to offer, you have to desire it. If you’re in this for the right aesthetic reasons, then you’ll truly enjoy and appreciate the results. This isn’t just like getting a tooth cleaning—it’s a real change, so it takes desire and careful thought.
  • You have a healthy foundation. You have to have strong gums in order to have porcelain veneers that do what they’re intended to. If there are diseases in the mouth, then adding veneers to your mouth isn’t going to fix any issues. With existing healthy gums and tooth enamel, the porcelain veneers are going to work better in the mouth.
  • You don’t clench or grind your teeth. This is a nasty habit to break, and if you do it with your real teeth, the weaker porcelain isn’t going to be able to hold up. They aren’t as strong as natural teeth, so the harsh movement and pressure on the teeth may cause them to chip or break.
  • Your teeth are well-aligned. When the teeth aren’t aligned naturally, it can be an issue with veneers because the jaw positioning will add pressure once the veneers are placed. This, in the long run, could cause them to chip and break, much like the results of grinding or clenching.
