Dental veneers are typically created from a special dental grade porcelain. These materials can mimic the appearance of natural tooth enamel and improve the appearance of your teeth. Dental veneers cover the face of a tooth and may include the biting edge. However, you should keep in mind that veneers are not as hard as your natural tooth enamel.
If you frequently bite into hard or tough foods, you could potentially chip the biting edge of a dental veneer. In a severe case, the tooth beneath the veneer can also be affected and you could experience increasing sensitivity and discomfort.
If you have chipped your veneer, please take the time to schedule an appointment with one of our skilled dentists to have it examined and addressed. Usually, our dentist will replace the damaged veneer. The cement holding your veneer in place may wear away over time, and if that happens, our dentist may be able to reattach your old veneer or give you a new one.
If you live in the Denver, Colorado, area and you have a chipped or fractured dental veneer, you should call 303-278-3353 to have it examined and treated at Steele Dentistry. Dr. Kate Steele, Dr. Lisa Schaffer, and Dr. Jay Randell are pleased to offer dental veneers for our patients.
