Veneer is a thin shell made out of porcelain or composite material. They are custom made and cemented to the front side of the tooth. Veneer can be used to treat dental conditions such as a slightly crooked tooth discolored teeth, chipped teeth or they can even be used to cover spaces in between the teeth.Veneer can be made by the dentist or in a dental laboratory, depending on the materials used and the preference of the dentist. Dental veneers are a thin coating of ceramic that is placed over the tooth on both sides. The placement of veneers on your teeth will give you a brighter smile and improve the appearance of your teeth. Veneers are a permanent solution to cosmetic dentist problems and will need to be replaced as they wear down over time. There are side effects and negative aspects of using veneers to improve your appearance that you should consider before deciding on the procedure.

Teeth Sensitivity

During the procedure to place dental veneers on your teeth, some of your tooth enamel will be removed to allow the veneer to attach, according to the University of Iowa College of Dentistry. This causes the teeth to be more sensitive to hot and cold after the procedure. This symptom is usually slight.

Permanent Solution

Patients who are undergoing treatment with cosmetic dental veneers should
understand that the procedure is permanent. Once veneers are placed on the teeth, there is no way to remove them. The small amount of enamel that is removed from your teeth makes it necessary to have a coating on top to protect the teeth and improve appearance.

Chipping or Cracking

Dental veneers are durable but they are not unbreakable. It is possible for your
dental veneers to chip and crack, which will require you to replace the veneer.

Expensive Maintenance

Veneers may be expensive to keep up over the years, as each crack and chip will have to be replaced. The veneers can also wear down over the years and require more maintenance to keep up the appearance of the teeth. Dental veneers provide you with whiter and evenly spaced teeth, but they still must be cleaned and undergo regular maintenance. You must also maintain good oral hygiene to prevent gum disease and cavities after placement of dental veneers.
