Am I a good candidate for porcelain veneers? (Photos)

Options to close gap #DrSoftTouch
Porcelain veneers and orthodontic treatment are both excellent options for patients with diastema (space between teeth). I would recommend seeing an experienced cosmetic dentist to determine your options. Always look at before and after photos when selecting your dentist. They will give you a pretty good indication about what you can expect. Good luck and I hope this helps. Follow me if you have more questions.

Many diasthemas may be solved only with veneers, as a mask, but in your case the gap is just too big, and would be impossible to do a tooth that wide to cover the space. You need to put braces on first to correct the misalignments and the overbite, after that you can get the porcelain veneers and they should look perfect!
