No. Dental veneers does not ruin your teeth if you are treated by a qualified dental specialist and if you look after your veneers as with your natural teeth. Restorative dentists or cosmetic dentists at BIDC are selected for their skilled artistry and experience. Where tooth prep or teeth need to be shaved for veneers, your dentist will aim to remove as thin or as little surface structure as possible.
In selective cases using super-thin veneers or lumineers, there is minimal prep or no prep done to teeth. This means that some veneer types may be reversible. However for the majority of cases, some tooth preparation is normally required for teeth veneers to shape and fit properly. Veneers is therefore sometimes known as being invasive since it tampers with a thin layer of your natural teeth. With today’s technologies, using digital dentistry such as Digital Smile Design (DSD), having veneers done is increasingly less invasive with very little tooth structure being removed. BIDC has an on-site dental lab, therefore your dentists can adjust (trim, reshape or add on) your veneers quickly and easily.
Composite veneers will however need more maintenance and proper care than porcelain veneers. During your initial consult, your dentist will discuss on your possible veneers options. Porcelain veneers is normally the preferred veneer material for the long-run because it is stronger, more stain-resistant and does not chip as easily as with composites. Composite veneers are normally temporary solutions and may possibly need re-work when it turns yellowish over time. When composite veneers are replaced, the existing composite bonding will need to be removed.
If have existing veneers that should really needs replacement, the intact teeth structure that remains after veneers removal is based on your previous veneer preparation, its thickness and the skill of your prior and current veneer removal dentist. If porcelain veneers are of high quality and properly done, they normally last for a long time and will not need frequent replacement.
