When it comes to enhancing the appearance of your teeth, you have many options available to you.

Are you seeking a way to close an unsightly gap between two teeth? Are you simply looking to improve the shape or shade of a tooth? Porcelain dental veneers as provided by Dr. Rogel Carlos and the team at AZ Dental Wellness of Scottsdale can cover all these problems.

Are Porcelain Veneers Appropriate for Teens?

Veneers are great for adults, but how about a teen looking to improve their smile? Some parents may believe that they need to put off cosmetic dental treatments for teens, but this is not necessarily the case. The reality is that teens, maybe more than adults, are hypersensitive about their appearance. A teen’s smile is especially important. So then, are porcelain veneers a good solution for teens? The answer is it depends on your teen. You will want to take your teen into the dentist to get evaluated. Here are some of the considerations that go into this decision.

Preparing the Tooth

When possible, most dentists will be very wary about performing any work on a teen’s teeth that may be irreversible. In the case of veneers, a small layer of enamel must be removed before a veneer can be adhered to the tooth. This procedure, called preparation, is irreversible and so this is something that needs to be seriously considered before a teen undergoes elective cosmetic dentistry.

 The Pulp Chamber

All teeth have an inner area called the pulp chamber. This is where the tooth’s inner tissue, nerves, and blood vessels are “housed”. As a person gets older, this area shrinks. For teens, this pulp chamber is larger and, because of this, is located closer to the front of the tooth. This makes removing even the thin layer necessary for a veneer a more precise and critical matter. If the pulp chamber is penetrated, it could lead to a root canal.
