Am I a Candidate for Porcelain Veneers?


candidate for porcelain veneers

Dr. Norkiewicz of Rockville Dental Arts in Rockville, MD are is glad to take the time to meet with patients to help them determine if they are a candidate for porcelain veneers. As your dentist in Rockville, MD, we offer a host of cosmetic dentistry treatments, but perhaps the most conservative and flexible of them is porcelain veneers.


Why? A candidate for porcelain veneers is not someone limited to a single issue or need, and the use of dental veneers can overcome cosmetic and functional challenges that include:


  • Deeply stained teeth that will not respond to teeth whitening
  • Chipped or cracked teeth
  • Mildly to moderately gapped teeth
  • Teeth of uneven lengths or proportions
  • Mildly to moderately misaligned teeth
  • Gummy smiles



As your cosmetic dentist, we can use porcelain veneers in numerous ways, and reading that list (above) makes it easy to see why veneers are so often referred to as instant smile makeovers. If you are a candidate for porcelain veneers, you can also enjoy the advantages of our office’s capability of making your veneers while you wait. Rather than leaving with a set of temporary veneers, we custom mill the thin shells and bond them to your teeth all in the same visit.

Often, a candidate for porcelain veneers is someone who would prefer their cosmetic updates and treatments to be as fast, painless and reliable as possible. These terms perfectly describe veneers, which require only minimal preparation to the teeth and then dental bonding to secure them, permanently in place. You can use them to eat, speak and look just like normal, only now you have a picture perfect smile. We do first ensure your teeth and gums are in healthy condition, so that gorgeous smile is as great as it looks.

However, a candidate for veneers is also someone who is ready and willing to keep up with the same oral hygiene they used on their natural teeth, and to get twice annual checkups and cleanings too. This keeps your mouth as healthy as possible.
