The importance of choosing the right dentist: What could go wrong?
It’s important that you don’t trust your dental veneers to just anyone, and we urge you to do your research before undergoing the procedure.
Look into a dentist’s credentials and experience beforehand, and make sure you’re getting quality dental care – not a cheap solution that you could have to correct further down the line.
Dental veneers come with a range of benefits, including improved self-esteem and confidence, a smile that looks natural and functions as normal, relatively pain-free treatment and a long-lasting solution. However, they have to be expertly bonded by a cosmetic dentistry professional to avoid unwanted complications.
Here are some potential side effects when veneers are applied by a less experienced dentist.
Veneers could fall off
Whether due to the bonding procedure, type of adhesive used or an inaccurate fit, the veneer could de-bond and fall off the natural teeth. If this happens, your underlying tooth is exposed, so keep hold of the veneer if possible, and visit a trusted dentist.
Decay could form
Because of the durability of the materials used, the veneer itself cannot decay. However, dental caries (decay) can form around the veneer if the wearer doesn’t practise good oral hygiene, or the veneer has not been fitted tightly enough. During an ideal procedure, the veneer should cling tightly to the tooth enamel to protect your teeth from decay-causing bacteria.
Overhangs could be created
If veneers are too large because they haven’t been properly custom-fit to the tooth, this can lead to an overhang. An overhanging veneer could enable the development of bacteria, lead to problems with your bite, or cause pain or sensitivity.
If your dentist removed too much of the enamel during the preparation stage, teeth can become sensitive and cause discomfort. This, in turn, could impact your ability to drink or eat certain foods – particularly those that are too hot or too cold.
Of course, there are risks with any dental treatment. But by choosing a qualified cosmetic dentist and following their care directions, your veneers can comfortably last years – or even decades.
