Porcelain Veneers Candidates

If you are seeking to improve the appearance of your smile, porcelain veneers are often a great way to achieve the results you desire. Made of porcelain materials, veneers are thin shells that are designed to fit snugly over your existing teeth. Depending on your individual needs, Dr. Edward Shukovsky can help you determine whether or not this treatment is right for you. Generally speaking, though, most individuals seeking to correct the following issues can be considered good candidates for porcelain veneers:


  • Chips
  • Cracks
  • Staining or discoloration
  • Worn down teeth
  • Minor misalignment
  • Irregular tooth shape
  • Small gaps
  • Uneven appearance


Patients who qualify as candidates for porcelain veneers can enhance the appearance of their smile with natural-looking results. No two smiles are the same, so Dr. Shukovsky customizes treatment for each patient, enabling the porcelain veneers to blend seamlessly with surrounding teeth.


If Dr. Shukovsky determines porcelain veneers might not be the best solution for your needs, he will recommend a more appropriate alternative treatment (or combination of treatments), such as teeth whitening, discreet orthodontics, dental bonding, or crowns.
