Fresno porcelain veneersFinding the right dental procedure for you is absolutely crucial. Dr. Miyake will not perform any procedure that is not appropriate for you and your specific needs. Many of our Fresno area patients come to us asking about porcelain veneers, and we first ensure that veneers are the right choice.

There are a few criteria for an ideal porcelain veneers candidate, but the most important criteria is simply ensuring that you have a problem that veneers can address. Porcelain veneers are popular, and for good reason, but that doesn't mean they're right for everyone.

Here are the conditions that porcelain veneers are designed to address:

  • Chipped or cracked teeth
  • Broken teeth
  • Crowded or irregularly spaced teeth
  • Teeth that are irreparably stained in a way that can't be treated by teeth whitening
  • Twisted or misshapen teeth
  • Teeth with uneven lengths

As you can see, veneers can accomplish a lot. For many patients, porcelain veneers represent an exciting path to a beautiful smile.

Are they right for you? If you have one of the conditions listed above and you're in sound dental health with no active infections, you could very well be a candidate for porcelain veneers. We'll be happy to discuss your options and examine your suitability for this versatile and effective cosmetic dentistry treatment.
