Does Gum Disease Interfere with Veneers?
If you have unsightly cracked or discolored teeth, veneers are a great route to go. However, are you worried that veneers may not be a good option if you have gum disease? The great news is that once we get your gum disease treated, you will be eligible for restorative dentist, including porcelain veneers.
To be a candidate for cosmetic dentistry, you need to have a good foundation for the dentist to work with. Gum disease causes your gums to recede, deteriorate, and when it is severe, you can even loose teeth. If your gum disease becomes severe, you are more susceptible to having other health issues, including cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and even stroke. To make sure that veneers are the right choice for you, you need to get on an effective plan to reverse the effects of gum disease.
Treatment options to reverse gum disease are:
- Bone Grafts
- Gum Surgery
- Scale and Root Plane
When you have your gum disease under control and everything is in good health, you will most likely be an excellent candidate for veneers. Once you have your oral health taken care of, let’s take a look at the appearance of your teeth.
If your teeth are any of the following:
- Have Gaps
Then porcelain veneers are a good option for you. When you get porcelain veneers, be sure to continue to practice great oral care. Just because your teeth look great, it doesn’t mean you don’t have to take care of them. You are still susceptible to gum disease, even when you have veneers.
