Dr. Jennifer Silver, a dentist in Calgary, offers porcelain veneers as a solution to various dental imperfections. However, not everyone may be eligible for this treatment. Before proceeding with porcelain veneers, it is important to determine your individual dental goals and assess your candidacy.

Porcelain veneers can address minor dental flaws such as small chips or cracks, smile gaps, slightly crooked teeth, and discoloration that is resistant to teeth whitening. Nevertheless, viable candidates must have healthy, fully developed teeth and realistic expectations about the outcomes of the treatment.

On the other hand, you may not be a suitable candidate for porcelain veneers if you have severely misaligned teeth, a teeth grinding habit, inadequate tooth enamel, extensive tooth decay or gum disease, or other significant dental or general health issues.

If you do not meet the criteria for porcelain veneer candidacy or if alternative treatments would be more appropriate for your cosmetic dental needs, Dr. Silver will discuss this with you during your consultation and provide answers to any questions you may have.
