A dental veneer does not require any additional maintenance. As always, you will have to keep your teeth clean. Brush with an electric toothbrush. Use toothpicks, brushes or floss regularly to clean between the teeth as well.
Does it hurt to get veneers?
A thin layer of the tooth enamel is usually what the dentist takes of first, so that the veneer fits well over the tooth and is comfortable. You can get anesthesia for this. When placing the veneers it is often not necessary to get anesthesia.
How long do veneers last?
Depending on the health of the tooth or molar that is underneath, a facing will last for many years. It is important to know that a facing is not completely insensitive to tooth decay. Keeping the facing and gums clean is therefore very important. In addition, we recommend that you do not bite off hard foods with veneers.
Are veneers covered by insurance?
You can request a budget with associated codes from our dentists prior to the appointment. This way you can check with your insurer what will be covered.
What is the difference in quality between porcelain and composite?
Porcelain veneers are made by a dental technician as indicated on this page and then placed on the tooth by the dentist. Composite veneers are applied directly to the tooth by the dentist. A composite veneer is cheaper than a porcelain facing. A porcelain veneer absorbs little or no color compared to the composite facing, where slight discoloration can occur, for example in smokers and in people who consume a lot of dyes from food and drinks.
