Are you looking forward to transforming your smile? The dental veneers are the simplest way to achieve a perfect smile by bonding them to the surface of your natural teeth to hide the dental issues. Veneers help to mask the discolored, stained, and oddly shaped teeth.
Mostly, veneers are durable and last for many years if given proper care. But if the veneer becomes dislodged or breaks, you’ll need to see a dentist as soon as possible.
The durability of veneers could be extended through oral hygiene and routine dental checkups. But, what should you do if your veneers get broken by accident? An emergency dental visit allows the dentist to repair a veneer through dental bonding or composite materials.
If there are only minor chips, the dentist will file the veneer to make them uniform and clear. It requires recontouring of nearby teeth to maintain the symmetry of teeth.
If the veneer is cracked, it would be difficult to repair as the dentist is unable to restore the symmetry between the tooth and the fractured part. If a veneer breaks but all the broken pieces were recovered, the dentist could reattach the veneer with a translucent bonding material.
This repair may cause discoloration and weakness around the fracture point that could lead to the further breaking of the veneer. Thus, replacing the veneer is better than repairing it.
Apply first aid if you experience broken or lost veneers. Manage the difficulties regarding hot and cold sensitivity due to chipped veneer using these first-aid measures.
