You are ready to do it! You are ready to see your cosmetic dentist in Columbia, SC Dr. Joel E. Johnson about a way to improve the look Veneersof your smile. Maybe you want your smile to be brighter or you want to hide other imperfections. Whatever the case may be, find out if dental veneers could do the trick!

Patients who end up being ideal candidates for dental veneers are usually looking to correct minor cosmetic issues such as:

  • Gaps
  • Chips
  • Cracks
  • Discolorations
  • Misalignment
  • Crookedness

Besides dealing with any of these issues you should also consider these factors to determine whether porcelain veneers are right for you:

Your health

You must have stellar oral health. This means your smile should be free of cavities or gum disease. You should also be committed to keeping your smile and veneers clean and healthy once you get them.

Your hygiene

Your oral care routine must be ideal. This doesn’t mean that you use your toothbrush occasionally (which we hope you don’t do anyway!). You should be brushing your teeth at least twice a day (three is ideal) and flossing daily. And don’t forget those six-month dental cleanings.

Your enamel

You must have enough healthy enamel on your teeth in order to get veneers. The reason? Because your Columbia, SC dentist will need to shave down some enamel to make room for the veneers.

Your goals

Of course, no treatment would be ideal if it didn’t give you exactly what you wanted. You must already have smile goals in mind and be able to talk to us about what they are during your initial consultation. We want you to be honest yet realistic about what you want to improve about your smile.
