Can Periodontal Disease Patients Get Porcelain Veneers Miami - Smiling woman at Miami Modern Dental

Miami area patients ask if they can get porcelain veneers if they have periodontal disease

A condition that patients may experience throughout their life when it comes to dental care is that of periodontal disease. Periodontal disease is an inflammatory condition that can result in the damage of bone, gum tissue, and teeth. Drs. Marlon Pasquier, Sr. and Marlon Pasquier, Jr. of Miami Modern Dental want to help patients in maintaining the health of their smile so this condition does not develop. However, when it does, it needs to be handled as soon as possible by an appropriate and experienced dental team.

Drs. Marlon Pasquier, Sr. and Marlon Pasquier, Jr. can help patients bring their smile back to health after conditions such as periodontal disease develops. They can perform extensive cleaning procedures such as scaling and root planing, or in the case of the earlier stage known as gingivitis, patients can have a thorough cleaning done and have a round of prescription antibiotics to control the infection. Getting a proper diagnosis of the condition and seeking the right treatment is the first step to getting appropriate care.

However, patients who are interested in cosmetic procedures such as porcelain veneers may be curious to know if they can get them while dealing with an active condition such as periodontal disease. Drs. Marlon Pasquier, Sr. and Marlon Pasquier, Jr. prefer to treat the condition before they continue on to cosmetic services. This is because these conditions can hide underneath veneers and go undetected if patients do not regularly visit their dentist for examinations. Porcelain veneers are created to bond over the front of the tooth and disguise imperfections, though the tooth structure underneath is still susceptible to periodontal disease and decay.

If you are interested in porcelain veneers but have active periodontal disease, Drs. Marlon Pasquier, Sr. and Marlon Pasquier, Jr. will first require you to deal with the condition before having cosmetic procedures performed. Most dentists will take this into consideration when they are asked about having veneers or other aesthetic treatments done on the natural teeth for enhancement.
