Removing Porcelain Veneers

Veneers are the most common solution to numerous dental problems in cosmetic dentistry. Whether you have crooked teeth, chipped teeth, odd-shaped teeth, teeth with cavities, disproportionately bigger or smaller teeth or teeth with a somewhat odd appearance, veneers will solve all such irregularities. If you ever suppress your smile because of any dental issue on your teeth, veneers fix such problems creating a pleasing and durable smile.


Porcelain veneers are extremely flat and thin, customized shells of tooth-colored materials placed over the front surface of your teeth. They change teeth appearance by giving them the needed shape, color, and size of your choice.


After you have had your porcelain veneers fixed, they are not invincible. They still would chip, crack or fracture just like the natural teeth if some measures are not followed. Worse still, it is the fact that if your porcelain veneers chip, crack or get fractured, there is no way to repair them. Bearing in mind that the process of getting porcelain veneers fixed is permanent and irreversible, this would be a big disaster if they get damaged. The only way to solve damaged porcelain veneers is by removing and replacing them. This could be a costly endeavor, but it is the only way to go.


Why would you be forced to remove porcelain veneers?

Porcelain veneers at times may be required to be removed for instances like:


a)  Structure refurbishing: If your porcelain veneers have lost their original color, shape or are becoming worn out, it is time to consider replacing them. This is because they won’t offer the service they were fixed for. Discolored porcelain veneers will eventually make you unable to smile freely. In that case, get new ones and have your confidence back.


b) Damaged veneers: If your veneers become damaged, it is time to get them replaced.


Ways of caring for your veneers?

If you don’t want to undergo the cost and loss of time by removing and replacing your beautiful porcelain veneer now and then, there are measures that you should follow to keep them intact and protected. In these ways, you will make sure that they maintain their original shape, color, and size while at the same time making them last longer. These measures include but not limited to:


Brush and floss every day: After you get your porcelain veneers fixed, do not be afraid to continue with your daily oral hygiene. Brush them after every meal and floss at least once a day. Always use a non-abrasive fluoride toothpaste to keep your gums strong. With that, you can be sure of long lasting veneers.


Avoid clenching and grinding of teeth: Highly stressed and anxious people are prone to habitual grinding and clenching of teeth especially when they are asleep. Grinding and clenching of teeth wears-out the porcelain. Talk to your dentist about your habit. The dentist may recommend a bite guard when you go to sleep.


Avoid extremely hard foods: Avoid biting your nails, apple crunching, nuts breaking, etc. if you want to keep your porcelain veneers intact.


Follow up visits: After your veneers are fixed, it is important you have a follow-up check-up visit. The dentist checks gums response and the effectiveness of your veneers.

Our daughter was 5 weeks old when she had a frenectomy done at Molson Park Dental and we couldn’t be happier with the experience and end results. The entire team was so friendly and did such a wonderful job keeping me at ease during the procedure. Also, our daughter started nursing 100 times better immediately after the procedure was done. We can’t thank you enough for allowing us to continue our breastfeeding journey pain free and allowing our daughter the ability to nurse efficiently :)
