Are you Considering Veneers to Boost your Smile?

Veneers are a great way to give you that smile you have always wanted. If you have always felt self-conscious about your smile, then you should consider veneers. Dr. Marc Page, D.M.D. and Dr. Lawrence Page, D.M.D. are here in Providence to help you get that smile you have always desired.

What are Veneers?

Veneers are a thin piece of porcelain that permanently fit directly over your teeth to improve the way they look. Veneers can be used to cover chipped, discolored, uneven, irregularly shaped, or crooked teeth. Veneers are used to make your smile look better.

Am I a Candidate for Veneers?

The dentist will assess the general health of your teeth to determine if you are a good candidate for veneers. He will look for the following when making the determination:

  • No dental decay
  • No gum disease
  • You do not grind or clinch your teeth
  • You have a properly aligned bite
  • You have enough healthy enamel to support the veneers
  • You practice good oral hygiene habits
If you are a smoker, veneers may not be the best choice for you. Talk with us and we will help you determine what the best options are for improving your smile.
Am I too Young for Veneers?
If you are a teenager wanting to enhance your smile, the dentist will evaluate you to determine if your facial bones, teeth, and gums have developed fully. If veneers are placed on your teeth before you have stopped growing, the veneer can pull away from your gum line, showing your natural teeth. This will result in an unappealing smile and a need to have the veneers redone.
