Tackling Myths About Veneers

woman surrounded by question marks ponders the myths about veneers.

Veneers are a life changing procedure that can completely transform and revitalize your smile. But, as with many dental procedures, there are some myths floating around about veneers that are not to be believed. In today’s post we’re tackling the most common myths and misconceptions about veneers.

Myth #1: Veneers Ruin the Natural Teeth

Because veneers are a permanent solution, many people assume that they jeopardize the health and integrity of the natural tooth. When you get veneers, we lightly file the surface of the tooth, removing about a millimeter of tooth enamel. This allows the veneers to adhere to your tooth and it ensures a natural fit that won’t look bulky. Most of your tooth will stay in tact, and the surface will ultimately be modified for the better!

Myth #2: Veneers Look Fake

Veneers and other restorative procedures often have a reputation for looking like fake teeth. While this may have been true in the early days of cosmetic and restorative dentistry, dental care has come a long way in recent years. Veneers are custom fit to provide a flawless finish. Your new smile will look completely natural, only better. As long as you’re visiting a reputable and experienced dentist, you can trust that veneers will only improve your smile.

Myth #3: Veneers Stain

While sparkling, white veneers seem like they’d be ripe for stains, that’s just not the case. Veneers are made out of a different material than tooth enamel, one that’s non-porous and stain-resistant. Veneers are sturdy, durable, and you can count on them to sparkle for years to come.
