Do Dental Veneers Have any Side Effects?

Posted on: June 16, 2018

Thinking about getting dental veneers? Veneers are a great cosmetic option for improving the look of your teeth. Whether you have a few chips or cracks in your teeth that you want to cover up or your teeth are discolored, veneers are one of the more popular dental procedures. Veneers can improve your smile in only one or two dental appointments.

New advances in dentistry make it so that you no longer have to try and avoid showing your teeth when you smile. All you have to do is make an initial appointment with us in order to discuss all of your options to improve your smile.

Dental veneers

A dental veneer is a super thin piece of porcelain or composite shell that we can attach to one’s tooth with a goal of improving the overall appearance. We will make the necessary adjustments to a veneer so that it perfectly fits on the patient's tooth, making it a permanent option. We will also make sure that the color of the veneer matches the patient's surrounding teeth, allowing them to once again smile with confidence.

Veneers are not just a cosmetic option as they are also able to give a tooth strength, making it much more durable than it was before.

Additional cosmetic issues

Additional cosmetic issues that veneers can help solve include worn tooth enamel and uneven teeth. While people naturally lose tooth enamel over time, drinks such as sodas, tea/coffee, smoking cigarettes or taking certain medications can discolor teeth. Along with the stains, these habits can also help to remove some of the enamel from the teeth.

while some people are content to live with the appearance of uneven teeth, other people want to adjust the teeth so they line up. The easiest way to do this is by placing veneers. A veneer can change the size, shape and color of a tooth to meet the patient's needs.

Do dental veneers have any side effects?

Yes, there are a few minimal side effects that can come with choosing dental veneers. The most common side effect is tooth sensitivity, which will gradually go away within a few weeks or so. Another side effect includes some minor gum swelling that can occur due to the veneers being placed close to the gum line and will often subside within a few days.
