When it comes to improving the aesthetic appearance of your smile, very often you may come across the idea of placing veneers. It really is a good and effective way to make your smile look attractive and memorable, but like any medical procedure, there are requirements and limitations for veneers placement.
So, what are the requirements for veneers placement.
- Your bite must be correct. Veneers do not align your teeth, but only slightly correct them, so it’s a good idea to make sure you don’t need a teeth alignment procedure before placing veneers.
- You do not have fillings on the teeth on which you plan to place veneers. It is important to know that before veneers are placed, part of the tooth is grinded down, which is problematic or impossible to do with dental fillings.
- You do not have bruxism. For patients with bruxism, veneers are contraindicated because you may inadvertently damage them in your sleep.
- You do not play extreme sports. Veneers are comparable in strength to porcelain, so placing veneers makes your teeth more vulnerable.
- You have chewing teeth. Otherwise, you need to undergo dentures first, and then think about getting veneers.
- You are not a fan of seeds or nuts. As mentioned above, veneers are quite fragile, so there are a number of foods that can potentially cause cracking.
- You are not pregnant. A large amount of anesthesia is used in the placement of a veneer, which is a significant strain on the body. Based on this, it is not recommended to have veneers placed during pregnancy to avoid harming the fetus.
