Veneers can Crack, Chip, Break
Cosmetically, porcelain veneers can do better than Inlay and Onlay(partial crown) and cost less than dental crowns. They are a more conservative dental restoration because we only need to remove a little enamel to accommodate a veneer.
The use of porcelain for veneers tends to yield a result that looks more like a natural tooth and lasts longer than resin. However, even the most durable veneers can chip or break like natural teeth. Veneers generally last between 7 and 15 years. After this time, the dental veneers would need to be replaced.
Got chipped or broken veneers?
Veneers are so strong that breakage is not a common occurrence, but the breakage can happen. We received a call from one of the AACD Accredited Dental Lab Technicians in other states. His niece Paulette was looking for a cosmetic dentist who could replace her veneers.
Paulette's teeth veneers were short, and they kept breaking. Dental contouring is often used to smooth the tiny tips of veneer porcelain. However, broken or cracked veneers are irreparable, and the dental laboratory must create a new veneer.
