Veneers are made of porcelain that is directly bonded to the tooth. They are no more likely to fracture or break than natural teeth when properly bonded.
Veneers are a very strong, thin shell of porcelain. When the dentist prepares teeth for a veneer, he only removes fractions of millimeters of enamel from the patients tooth structure allowing the placed veneer to take up the space left behind replacing the original tooth structure. Once the veneer is placed, it’s cemented in.
The teeth are practically the same size after the procedure as they were before. This helps the patient retain their natural bite, and prevents the teeth from looking larger than normal.
Caring for Veneers
Caring for veneers is the same as you would treat your natural teeth. Daily flossing and twice a day brushing will ensure that your veneers last you the rest of your life.
