When to Do Veneers
A veneer is a thin layer of porcelain made to fit over the front surface of a tooth, like a false fingernail fits over a nail. Sometimes a natural-color ‘composite' material is used instead of porcelain.
Dental veneers can be used to conceal many common tooth imperfections, helping enhance the appearance of the teeth.
Candidates who opt for veneers as part of a procedure such as a smile makeover typically have a variety of cosmetic needs they would like addressed, especially:
Patient have cracked, chipped, or broken teeth. There’re a couple of options to fix chipped, cracked, or broken teeth. Veneers are a good option for this common dental problem. Depending on the severity of the crack, chip, or break, professional dentist may recommend a veneer.

If your teeth are worn down. It’s a fact that teeth get worn down over time as people age. Also worn down teeth are typically consequences of teeth grinding or clenching (known as bruxism). If someone grinds their teeth on a frequent basis, the tops of the teeth can become flat and dull over time. This can lead to significant dental issues if not handled properly.
For patients who have severely worn down teeth, dental veneers can be a great option. Dental veneers can restore the appearance of the teeth and provide more stability for chewing food.
If you have teeth that are misaligned, uneven, or irregularly shaped. Minor alignment problems can be resolved with the help of veneers. For teeth that are extremely misaligned, other orthodontic services would be better options.
