WHAT ARE THE DISADVANTAGES OF DENTAL VENEERS?

Dental veneers have the following disadvantages:

  • Porcelain veneers can come off or break or chip.
  • If your teeth have been drilled, the veneers are irreversible.
  • Composite veneers  or porcelain veneers do not change colour with whitening.
  • Colour matching can be difficult if only one or two veneers are done.
  • Need for better oral hygiene is more crucial.
  • The veneers may have to be replaced after some years.
  • Age and trauma related gum recession can affect appearance.
  • People with clenching, grinding and other chewing habits are not the best candidates for dental veneers.
  • In the case of people with uncontrolled gum disease, dental veneers can exacerbate the problem.
