Are veneers permanent and cannot be removed? Are veneers permanent and cannot be removed?



What you need to know before deciding to apply veneers


When you make veneers, there is no turning back!

Veneers are permanent and are not prepared for later removal.


Veneers are designed to stay in place on your teeth for the rest of your life. It usually lasts between 10-20 years, and if one of these crusts is broken or lost, you must replace it with a new one.

You can never go back to the way it was before the veneers were applied. . . . Why ?

Because when you do the veneers, your doctor will take out or strip some of the natural enamel from your teeth, and once that’s done, there is no going back!

It is true that this reduced enamel layer is very thin, but it inevitably needs to be covered to protect the rest of the natural tooth. If you remove these veneers, the rest of the natural teeth will become weaker and more susceptible to damage and tooth decay. Therefore, veneers are considered “permanent”.


Be sure you’re ready to commit before you get veneers – or go for other options

Veneers are definitely a great way to get your smile back, but because they’re permanent ‘irreversible’, you should be sure that they’re right for you before you commit to them. You should give great care to your teeth and veneers in the future to ensure that you get the best results.

If you don’t get used to the idea of ​​permanent, irreversible treatment, there are other options you can try. Teeth whitening, for example, is the most common and easiest way to get white teeth, but whitening does not reshape your teeth. In other words, it changes the color, not the shape or character of the teeth.

If your goal is to change the shape and alignment of the teeth, then you can adopt composite veneers, which are light cured fillings appropriate to the color of your teeth, used through the BOND technique, which the doctor applies directly to your teeth to change their shape, color, or close the spaces between the teeth.


Before you get the veneers:

  • Your teeth and gums must be healthy. Your doctor should treat any decay in your teeth or disease in the periodontal tissues and gums before applying the veneers.
  • Veneers are not an acceptable option for patients who suffer from night bruxism, because this may lead to the breaking of the thin veneers. If you suffer from bruxism, your doctor may make you use special night guide trays while you sleep.
  • The veneers may become weak with time or some of them may fall off, and since the application of the veneers is irreversible as we mentioned previously, in this case you must apply new veneers instead.
  • Always and forever in all your dental procedures, discuss with your dentist the appropriate treatment options for you and your teeth and gums, and make periodic visits to his clinic.


After you get the veneers:

  • Take into your mind that the veneers may break or crack under pressure. So avoid biting or chewing hard objects.
  • You need several days to get used to these veneers in your mouth. But you must inform your doctor directly if you cannot fit your teeth properly after cementing the veneers, so that he can correct and adjust them before you leave the clinic.
  • Keep your teeth and gums clean by brushing and using dental floss daily.
