Do dental veneers wear out? Indications on resistance over time

dental veneers wear out

Aesthetic dentistry is that branch of dentistry that is used for dental treatments that restore the aesthetics of a smile, including ceramic veneers. The question for many patients is: do dental veneers wear out? Let’s try to answer this question.

What are dental veneers for?

Dental veneers are a cosmetic dentistry treatment that is used to restore a smile to its natural beauty, especially in cases of:diastema apparatus

  • blemishes;
  • dental trauma;
  • face aging due to tooth wear.

It is a very thin layer of ceramic that overlaps the natural tooth and covers it.

Aesthetic dentistry treatments: planning is necessary

cosmetic dentistryThe dental veneers are applied through an adhesive directly on the surface of the teeth, but it is important not to neglect the functional aspects and plan the treatment.

The design phase for the application of dental veneers must necessarily take into account the thickness of the tooth to avoid malocclusions and therefore consequences on masticatory function.

Treatment planning can involve the prosthodontist to define the right thickness of each element.

When dental veneers wear out

The dental veneers wear out if upstream there is no proper treatment planning and if their application is not monitored in periodic checkups.

Among the types of dental veneers, it should be added that the porcelain veneers are more resistant over time and hardly absorb the color pigments that could stain them, while dental veneers in composite materials have less resistance and may change color with time .

The dental veneers could be worn out due to the same bad habits that previously the teeth have worn out.

During a day the mechanical work to which we subject our teeth is continuous, to this we add bad habits or particular pathologies that can significantly affect the wear of the teeth, among these:

  • intake of carbonated drinks or foods with another degree of acidity
  • Tooth brushing with too much force or using abrasive toothpaste
  • bruxism

The same causes that dental veneers wear out. To prevent dental veneers from wearing out over time, it is important to follow the dentist’s instructions and not to miss checkups.
