Dr. Jeffrey Mason recognizes the benefit of veneers on a person's smile. However, patients in Hasbrouck, NJ, and the surrounding area might be concerned about the safety of this procedure. So, Dr. Mason would like to take a moment to explain whether he recommends this procedure or not and for which patients. 

What Dentists Recommend Veneers For 

When you visit a dentist in Hasbrouck, NJ, to correct aesthetic problems with your teeth, veneers could be a solution. In fact, veneers help with the following issues:

  • Discolored teeth
  • Misalignments 
  • Minor gaps  
  • Cracks and chips

Why Veneers Could Be Risky 

The reason why people question if a dentist recommends veneers is because, with certain varieties, the dentist shaves a portion of your natural tooth. However, despite removing some of your natural teeth, which won't regenerate, veneers are safe for most people. The amount of tooth removed is minimal, even with versions that require a practitioner to remove some of your teeth. Your dentist will strive to remove as little of your tooth as possible. 

Moreover, your dentist will examine your teeth to ensure the procedure is safe for you. For instance, if you have thin enamel, your dentist will recommend a variety that doesn't remove any of your natural teeth. On the other hand, a practitioner will possibly advise you to receive another correction method. Your dentist will evaluate the health of your gums and teeth first because if you have gum disease, untreated decay, or other oral health problems, you may not qualify for this procedure. Additionally, it's best not to get this procedure if you grind your teeth.  

When a Dentist Recommends Veneers

A dentist will recommend veneers if you're looking for tooth correction for various aesthetic issues. A practitioner will consider this procedure if you're interested in it and have no oral health issues that could interfere with its safety. Therefore, a dentist may recommend this treatment if you're looking for a more permanent correction method. 

Dr. Mason helps Hasbrouck, NJ, smile brightly with routine dentistry services. However, Dr. Mason also provides and recommends the option of veneers for people who are looking to correct imperfections with their smiles.
