Your dentist can easily remove and repair or replace the veneers by adding new composite material.
Yes, they can.
While removal of composite veneers, a small amount of enamel will be removed in the process.
After this, your teeth can be polished and re-evaluated after the composite is off.
If you break your composite veneers, you don’t need to worry. You just have to schedule a visit with your cosmetic dentist. They should be able to repair it in one visit.
How to know that it’s time to replace your composite veneers
If you are determined to make your veneers last longer and don’t want to spend extra pounds on getting them replaced before time demands, here are some foods you should avoid.
This is only a guide, you should consult with your dentist. They can advise you to remove stains with your specific conditions in mind.
Here are a few tips to maintain your composite veneers
Gum disorders are brought on by poor dental hygiene. Your gums could start to recede as a result, exposing the veneer borders and increasing the likelihood that they will crack or come off.
Choose the right toothpaste
Don’t use teeth whitening pastes.
Whitening pastes may include ingredients like sodium bicarbonate and hydrogen peroxide (baking soda). These chemicals will eventually eat away at the surface of your veneers or ruin their colour and gloss.
The toothpaste should ideally eliminate stains without using any abrasive action. Ask your dentist for brand recommendations.
Watch your bite
Veneers aren’t as durable as real teeth. To make them last longer, you should not chew on particularly hard objects like pens, ice, nails, bones, etc. If you chew on these or other hard objects, your veneers could chip.
A lot of alcohol can weaken the bonding materials holding your veneers to your teeth. This won’t always result in the veneers coming loose, but it will increase the teeth bonding line’s susceptibility to stains and damage.
Check the contents for alcohol before purchasing mouthwash or toothpaste.
Deal with teeth grinding
Bruxism puts a lot of pressure on your teeth, severely harming both your veneers and your natural teeth. You might need to use a bite guard or an occlusal guard in this situation. If you grind your teeth as you sleep, the device will reduce the strain on your teeth.
Pick a soft-bristled toothbrush
A unique adhesive holds your teeth laminates in place. You must give the bonding a week or two after your veneers are fitted to set in.
Even after this initial period, you should continue to brush your teeth with a gentle whitening toothpaste and a soft-bristled toothbrush.
Another way to improve the life of composite veneers is by going to an experienced practice. A good dentist will tell you how to maintain your veneers, make sure the fitting is perfect and give you the best possible treatment.
