What are the disadvantages of porcelain veneers?

Patients enjoy their dental veneers in Sarasota because they have many aesthetic benefits. They can hide short or worn teeth, conceal gummy smiles, and give the illusion of a perfectly symmetrical smile.

For years, they were a celebrity secret, but today we are proud to offer them in our dental office.

And if your goal is a beautiful smile, it’s difficult to dwell on the disadvantages of porcelain veneers because they are so versatile and transformative. But one potential drawback is their permanence.

To place a dental veneer, your dentist must remove tooth enamel. It’s a negligible amount, but it means the tooth is forever altered and will always need a veneer. You must see your dentist for a replacement if you lose or damage a veneer. Otherwise, your tooth is at serious risk for decay and loss.

Veneers are thin, but durable strips of porcelain cemented to the fronts of teeth. Dental veneers can last up to a decade or longer with proper care and good habits.
