What are Dental Veneers?
Veneers are very thin shells that are attached to the front part of teeth. They are often made of porcelain or composite resin. Porcelain veneers are stronger than composite resin veneers and do not change colour or stain.
What Should I know about Dental Veneers?
Just like your natural teeth, your veneered tooth needs to be brushed and flossed daily.
If the veneers are not fully placed or sealed onto your tooth, stains or cavities can form under the veneer.
Once you have veneers, you cannot reverse the treatment because part of your enamel has been removed.
If a veneer chips or peels off, or if a cavity forms under a veneer, the veneer must be redone. The other option is to put a crown on the tooth.
Constantly grinding or clenching your teeth may cause your bonding or veneers to chip or break.
Porcelain veneers and bonded teeth can be chipped if you are not careful when biting or tearing into hard or chewy foods. Do not bite hard objects like ice cubes or fingernails.
Cosmetic dental treatments like bonding or veneers might not be covered by your dental plan. You may be responsible for those costs yourself.
Cosmetic dental treatment can improve your smile and give you more confidence.
