Veneers are increasingly becoming popular because they provide a quick fix solution when you have discolored teeth and want to make them look as beautiful as possible. It can also be used to cover cracked or chipped teeth and make it look more natural.
Veneers are not only ideal to remedy a number of dental problems. You have to understand that they are vulnerable to problems because they are delicate pieces.
Usually made of porcelain molded and shaped to fit your existing teeth, with carelessness, it can be easily broken. Here are some helpful tips when you find yourself in that predicament:
Wrap the Broken Part With Tissue to Save itSince dental veneers are expensive, it might save you a little when you save the part that was broken. Wrapping the broken part with a tissue will ensure that it does not get additional damage which can be hard to rebond.
In such cases when you experience damaging a large portion of your dental veneer, it may be irreparable, and your dentist can recommend a replacement for the missing part or the whole structure. If you opt to have it replaced, a new impression will be molded from your natural tooth so a new one can be created.
Visit the Dentist ImmediatelyVeneers are quite delicate to begin with. When your dental veneers get chipped or cracks only a dentist can have it glued. When you have it done for yourself, it would end up as a temporary solution and can possibly make matters worse.
In many ways, fixing the problem yourself can lead to complications, including a bad reaction from your gum tissue or using self-remedy materials can damage the nerve of your teeth.
Your dentist can re-cement the veneer, so it can be good as new. It may be counterproductive if you try to pull out the veneer yourself or install the crown back.
