Four Myths About Dental Veneers Debunked

Dental veneers are an excellent way to help perfect a smile, hiding small cracks and chips in teeth or teeth that are extensively discoloured. However, there are some common myths about treatment that we’d like to debunk.

Myth 1 – Veneer Treatment is Painful

Receiving veneers should not be painful as we thoroughly numb your teeth before preparing them, making sure you remain entirely comfortable during treatment.

Myth 2 – The Entire Tooth Needs Reshaping for Veneers

Treatment is relatively non-invasive, and the dentist will only need to remove a tiny amount of tooth enamel from the front surface of the tooth, leaving the rest of the tooth intact. Sometimes even this isn’t necessary, and the entire tooth remains fully intact.

Myth 3 – Veneers Look Unnatural

Well-designed veneers should look perfectly natural, and we take extensive care to design and make each veneer in a shade and style that complements your appearance. When a veneer looks unnatural, it’s often because it is too big and bulky and in a shade that is too white.

Myth 4 – Veneers are Only for Cosmetic Purposes

Veneers are largely used for cosmetic purposes, but they can also be useful in covering teeth that may be chipped or cracked slightly, restoring the tooth and protecting it.
