No, dentists can not whiten veneers. The treatment does not work on the material typically used for veneers. The porcelain material will not accept the whitening solution, and the veneer color will remain the same. However, the color of the veneer is adjustable so that it will match your teeth. Make sure that they match your teeth. Once we cement them, the color cannot change.Learn More
Dental veneers do not have any direct correlation with patients developing cavities. When we install veneers, they protect any unexposed or unprotected parts of the tooth or enamel. If anything, veneers patch where cavities would have been likely to form. They protect the tooth from any exposure to plaque.Learn More
With porcelain veneers, you can eat any food that you choose. However, your diet does have a direct impact on the lifespan and aesthetics of your new teeth. You should be careful not to eat hard or sticky foods the first few days after your procedure. Ensure that your veneers fit properly and give yourself time to adjust to their new feel. Drinking lots of deep-colored drinks such as wine and coffee are likely to stain your veneers quicker than drinking water.Learn More
Yes, it is a possibility. This usually happens when the lifespan of the veneers is at its end. The adhesive has worn down, and you’ve been using them to eat and chew daily. They can also fall off when you bite into a portion of hard food, putting too much pressure on one veneer.Learn More
No, you shouldn’t experience pain when you’re getting porcelain veneers. Only a small amount of tooth structure is removed, and it doesn’t get down to the dental nerves and pulp in the center of the tooth. However, you may experience some sensitivity in the beginning. The layer under the tooth enamel is more sensitive, and that’s being exposed before the veneer is placed.Learn More
Porcelain veneers can take care of a wide variety of cosmetic dental concerns. We’ll do an examination and determine if they’re the best choice for your needs. You’ll have to be in good oral health to get veneers. We can’t place veneers on teeth that have cavities and aren’t healthy. This goes for the gums, too. If you have certain oral health conditions, we’ll have to treat them before veneers are possible.Learn More
