Do veneers ruin your teeth?
Veneers are made of porcelain and not enamel like natural teeth. However, they do not ruin your natural teeth. They are designed to fit over your natural teeth & enhance their naturally beautiful appearance.
On the other hand, it’s so important to finish all the treatments required for your teeth that will be covered by veneers before proceeding with veneers treatment.
Veneers that have been done properly do not cause cavities or gum issues.
Cavities or gum issues can happen due to many reasons like lack of veneers fitting, veneers open margins, lack of proper home care and oral hygiene, cavities that have been there before without fixing them, lack of regular follow up with your dentist etc.
In order to proceed with veneers, it will be necessary to remove a thin layer of your teeth enamel to provide the thickness for veneers so they look natural & fit your teeth properly.
The amount of enamel to be removed depends on many factors like teeth alignment, bite status, cavities, teeth attrition, the relation between upper & lower arches. However, this process does not increase the chances that you'll suffer from decay. The part of your lost enamel will be protected by veneers.
The main advantage of veneers over your natural teeth is that they do not stain. They are also so hard & more resistant to damage than your natural teeth.
