Frequently Asked Questions About Veneers
You should have good oral hygiene and practices to prevent unnecessary tooth decay and gum problems to be a suitable candidate for veneers. Veneers will work well and look more natural on the teeth that are properly aligned.
Veneers are not for everyone. There are various things to consider to determine whether veneers are the right treatment for you. If you experience any of the following listed below, it may not be a good option for you:
- Conditions like grinding and clenching.
- Poor oral hygiene.
- Severe crowding or malocclusion (you may need Invisalign before your veneer process).
- Stained or discoloured teeth
- Chipped or Broken teeth
- Crooked teeth
- Worn-down teeth
- Gaps between teeth
- Misshapen teeth
Composite resin veneers: Composite veneers are made of composite resin, which is a mixture of inorganic and organic materials. They blend in fairly well with your natural teeth colour, but are prone to staining over time. The bonding material used to make them is the same as that used for tooth-coloured dental fillings. Porcelain veneers are more expensive than composite veneers.
Porcelain veneers: For dental restorations, porcelain is the most cosmetic and least harmful material available. It is also the toughest and most durable of all veneer materials. Porcelain veneers are highly biocompatible, which means they rarely cause harm to the gum tissues and other soft tissues of the mouth. Because porcelain is so natural-looking, these veneers can greatly improve the appearance of your teeth so you can achieve a beautiful smile.
Lumineers: are a veneer brand. They are built of ultra-thin porcelain laminate material and need minimal preparation before placement. Compared to porcelain veneers, a less natural tooth structure is removed before attaching a lumineer over your surface enamel. Lumineers are widely used to correct stained and unevenly shaped teeth. They are smooth to the touch, so they appear and feel natural.
Removable veneers: are sometimes known as “snap-on veneers.” There are two kinds: instant veneers and custom-made clip-on veneers.
- Tooth preparation includes a small amount of tooth enamel removed to make room for your veneer.
- A traditional putty impression or intraoral scanner is used to create a mould of your teeth.
- To select a natural color for your veneer(s), you and your dentist will use a shade guide to examine your adjacent teeth.
- The impression and preferred shade will be transferred to a dental laboratory to make customised veneers.
- Your dentist will create a temporary veneer chairside to give you a restoration to wear until your veneers are ready.
- During your next dental visit, your dentist will fit and adjust your veneers until they are properly placed.
- The veneer is firmly attached to the front surface of the teeth once it has been adjusted. Excess cement is removed.
Tooth sensitivity. After veneer placement, the teeth are susceptible to sensitivity for about 3 weeks. A more serious problem may be present if the sensitivity to cool or hot liquids lasts longer than 3 to 6 months. It may have resulted in an infection if a tooth’s nerve had been irreversibly inflamed during the procedure. If sensitivity lasts too long, talk to your dentist about treatment options.
Tooth damage. Dentin damage is also possible following veneer placement, but it is less prevalent. It is likely that the underlying dentin will be harmed during the enamel removal process. A poorly fitted veneer might also cause a patient’s bite to shift, resulting in tooth sensitivity, bruxism, or jaw pain.
Future veneer replacement. Individuals who have untreated dental issues prior to veneer application, such as enamel erosion, are more likely to have veneer failure. Alternative restorations, such as crowns or cosmetic bonding, are frequently recommended to replace a veneer.
Veneers are quite simple to maintain. It is always necessary to practise a good dental hygiene routine to avoid dental problems. A little effort is required in taking proper care of your dental veneers:
- Avoid chewing on hard objects such as pens, ice, or your fingernails.
- Do not use your teeth to open packages.
- Chew with your back teeth instead of your front teeth. It is best to chew hard foods only with your back teeth; cut up the hard food so that it is possible to do this.
- Put a night splint or retainer on your teeth if you grind or clench them at night.
- Wear a mouthguard when you play sports.
- Getting a mouth guard or retainer is important if you grind your teeth or clench your teeth.
Dental veneers can be a costly procedure that can drastically improve the appearance of your teeth. The price will vary depending on a number of criteria, including the type you require and your location in Australia. In Western Australia, tooth-coloured veneers may cost up to $1192.81 per tooth. This includes the oral examination and x-rays.

Unfortunately, dental veneers will not respond to whitening products, even professional in-chair teeth whitening. Using whitening toothpaste contains abrasive substances that may damage veneers.
Although veneers cannot be whitened, they can still be maintained and improved. If you are concerned about the discolouration of your veneers or real teeth, you should schedule an appointment with your dentist, as professional cleaning or replacement may be an option.
