Do dental veneers ruin your real teeth?

If you are feeling uncertain or confused about the function, purpose and the application of dental veneers, we hear you. In regards to wether or not dental veneers ruin your real teeth, the short answer is, no, dental veneers do not typically ruin your natural teeth.

As with any other type of dental treatment, we can't offer a 100% guarantee about the results of a procedure. However, with the right application, care and maintenance, dental veers are very unlikely to ruin your natural teeth.

Veneers are designed to boost both the appearance and quality of your natural teeth — to help you achieve a beautiful smile and improve your over-all health.

Dental veneers likely won't ruin your natural teeth because:

  • The dental cement or bonding agents used to attach your veneers do not usually pose harm to your natural teeth
  • Veneers are created to comfortably fit over teeth
  • There is no one-size-fits all approach with veneers. Each veneer is custom-sized and made for each of your teeth being treated.
  • Your teeth and gums are analyzed prior to application to ensure you are eligible for dental veneers
  • The materials we use to create dental veneers at Meyer Dental Group are nontoxic to the human mouth

With that being said, your real teeth still need to be protected from cavities and decay. Dental veneers do not prevent these challenges from occurring. You still need to brush your teeth, floss daily, clean and treat your teeth well to prevent infections, breaking, chipping or fracturing

Ways to protect your natural teeth with dental veneers:

  • At least 2 minutes of brushing every morning and every evening
  • Flossing once a day as usual
  • Use American Dental Association recommended toothbrushes and toothpaste
  • Avoid chewing hard objects like your finger nails, pens, or ice. If these are long-standing habits that you have, please be aware and strive to break out of it with the right help!
  • Be aware of grinding or clenching your teeth at night or during the day. This is often a stress-related behavior or is simply habit. For more about bruxism, click here.
  • If you play sports, get wear a custom-designed mouth guard
  • Stay away from biting into hard foods and treats like raw veggies, nuts, toffee, brittle, etc.
  • Never use your teeth as a tool to open things like plastic packaging, bottles, bagged snacks, etc.!
  • See your dentist for professional cleanings every six months.

In the veneer application process, a thin later of enamel is removed to provide the bonding agent your veneers attach to a surface that it can attach to properly and securely. This does mean that veneers are a serious commitment and that your natural teeth are slightly weakened.

This is to ensure that your veneers adhere and will stay in place for long-term, sustainable results — and ultimately strengthen your teeth. With that said, this does not, in most cases, destroy or ruin your natural teeth.

So what are dental veneers?

Dental veneers are really quite simple. They are wafer thin slices of porcelain that are fitted neatly and securely over your teeth and help to restore them to their natural appearance. We believe at the Meyer Dental Group they are the right choice to bring back your charming smile.

Veneers in the way they mimic natural teeth with their great tooth colored appearance have moved ahead in leaps and bounds in recent years, not so much because of their ability to restore a healthy, natural smile but because they bond so well and last such a long time. If you have a front tooth that looks unsightly we believe that a porcelain veneer is the right answer to correct it and bring back your charming smile.
