The Replacement of Porcelain Veneers
By Dr. Everett Heringer on September 05, 2014
Porcelain veneers have become extraordinarily popular among cosmetic dentistry patients for a number of reasons. There are few cosmetic treatments that can match porcelain veneers in terms of their natural appearance, durability, and ability to transform nearly any smile from listless and marked by imperfections to a beautiful work of art. This is particularly true when the treatment is performed by dentists with the experience, skill, and aesthetic sensibilities of Dr. Everett E. Heringer and Dr. Brielle Renz.
For all of their benefits, however, porcelain veneers will eventually require replacement. If you are in need of a dentist who can replace your veneers, you can trust the experts of Heringer Dentistry to provide superior, long-lasting results. At our cosmetic dentistry practice in Bismarck, porcelain veneers replacement is performed with the greatest care and attention to detail.
Reasons for Having to Replace Porcelain Veneers
With proper dental hygiene and regular dental appointments, porcelain veneers can last for a decade or even longer. However, even the most durable and finely crafted porcelain veneers will eventually require replacement. Over time, they become increasingly vulnerable to chipping, breaking, or other aesthetic imperfections. Even porcelain veneers that are well cared for can become dislodged or simply fall off as a result of a weakening bond. Drs. Heringer and Renz make certain that their patients understand before having their veneers placed that the restorations are not permanent and that one day replacement will be necessary.
Some patients turn to our dentists for the replacement of their porcelain veneers because they are unhappy with the appearance or feel of veneers created and placed by other dentists. Unfortunately, not every dentist shares our dentists’ ability to craft natural-looking veneers that take into account the patient’s bite and blend perfectly into his or her smile. In such cases, Drs. Heringer and Renz can replace aesthetically displeasing or poorly fitting veneers with new veneers that are customized to the patient’s unique needs and goals.
There are also cases in which the veneers were not properly bonded to the teeth by other dentists, resulting in the porcelain restorations falling off prematurely. Whatever the reason you need to have your porcelain veneers replaced, our talented dentists can give you the results you desire.
Why Do Veneers Have to Be Replaced?
Traditional porcelain veneers are not reversible - that is, once the teeth have been prepared for veneers through the removal of a thin layer of enamel, they will always require veneers. Without the veneers, the teeth will be unable to function properly and will be aesthetically unsightly. Even during the period when the patient’s replacement veneers are being crafted, temporary veneers will have to be placed.
Our dentists use premier-quality da Vinci Veneers™ both for patients getting veneers for the first time and for patients who are having their veneers replaced. In both cases, da Vinci Veneers™ will provide patients with results that are designed to last for many years and continue to look brilliant the entire time.
