Nov 21st, 2011 Your Concerns Over Replacing Veneers More than Once Discussed by Central London Dentist Get in touch

If you are concerned that veneers cannot be replaced more than once, there is nothing to worry about. Your dentist in Central London will be able to replace your veneers more than once without problem. Composite resin veneers are the easiest to replace. These type of veneers are made to last a maximum of about five years, anyway, so they are meant to be replaced throughout a patient’s lifetime. Composite resin veneers are also easy to fix so minor issues will require a simple repair rather than a complete replacement of the entire veneer. Porcelain veneers are somewhat more difficult to replace. Porcelain veneers are of a higher quality than composite resin and are intended to last the patient up to fifteen years. Porcelain veneers are custom made in a laboratory setting. Thus, if any unusual problems arise, a simple repair is not an option and the entire veneer must be replaced. The first replacement for porcelain veneers is no problem at all. A second or third replacement, however, may require an extra step of building up the surface area of your teeth with a bonding material and then having the teeth trimmed to accommodate the porcelain veneers. This extra step ensures that your replacement porcelain veneers fit just as well as the first time around and last you another fifteen years to come.
