Dependable porcelain veneers
Porcelain veneer remakes are not always the result of failed porcelain veneers. Sometimes the very characteristic that makes porcelain so dependable can be the reason one may choose to replace them. Generally, porcelain veneers are exceptionally durable and, providing the avoidance of injury, they can last a long time. Another appealing quality of porcelain veneers is that they do not stain. Unfortunately, our natural teeth age, and as they age, they tend to darken in shade. This means that the porcelain veneers that perfectly matched the teeth of a patient at age 35 can be quite a few shades off from the teeth of that same patient by the time he or she is 50.
It is very possible that even after teeth whitening there can still be a noticeable difference between the color of the original teeth and the porcelain veneers. Some patients may opt for dental bonding to match the porcelain veneers, but it could be possible that the brighter shade of white can look out of place on an older patient. Your cosmetic dentist is concerned about creating the smile that looks natural for you, which means that the color and shade is just as important as the shape and function of your teeth.
Gum disease and dental veneers
Beyond the fact that a patient can change the veneers when he or she wishes to match their natural color, dental veneers may need to be replaced if there is an issue related to gum disease or decay. If a patient is not diligent in seeing their dentist for regular checkups, then tooth decay and gum disease can become an issue. In such, cases the gum tissue can recede, exposing the veneer edges and creating an unsightly tooth.
In such cases, the porcelain veneer remakes should be done as soon as possible to save both the veneered teeth and the natural teeth from further decay. Gum recession leads to the exposure of the veneer edges, and it should be taken care of before the condition affects the entire gum. In order to ensure that your veneers last as long as possible and to avoid failed porcelain veneers, make sure that you schedule regular checkups with your cosmetic dentist, maintain good oral hygiene, and do not place unnecessary force on the veneered teeth by chewing or biting hard foods, such as ice or hard candies.
