Have you been thinking about some cosmetic dentistry? If so, you may have heard about porcelain veneers. Also called porcelain veneers, they are a fast and effective remedy to a long list of cosmetic issues. At Michael Roessler, DDS in Mundelein, IL, we are happy to consult with patients to help them determine whether they are a candidate for porcelain veneers or other cosmetic dentistry solution.

As your preferred dentist in Mundelein, we make an array of cosmetic treatments available, and one of the more popular is veneers. Done by our porcelain veneers specialist, they can help patients with:

  • Unevenly sized teeth
  • Teeth that are chipped or broken
  • Unevenly spaced teeth
  • Gummy smiles
  • Misaligned teeth
  • Teeth with cracks
  • Deeply stained teeth unable to be whitened

Clearly, this means our cosmetic dentist may tell you that you are a candidate for porcelain veneers for several reasons. However, there are some steps in the use of veneers that also require our team to help you determine if you remain a candidate for porcelain veneers.

For example, veneers are not set over your teeth in their entirety. Instead, the tooth is prepared for veneers by having a small amount of the enamel removed. You must have healthy teeth and gums for this to be an option, but that is good news because it means any patient seeking veneers will receive them once they have great oral health. It is a win-win!

Aftercare Matters

Of course, to be a candidate for porcelain veneers also means you are willing to do a few things after you have your veneers placed. For instance, you will still have to provide your teeth and gums with optimal oral hygiene as well as coming in for twice annual cleanings and checkups. You will also have to refrain from certain habits, such as biting your nails, chewing ice, tapping the teeth with pens or pencils or any other habits that can harm the teeth and the veneers.
