Veneers are something that many people have either had done or something that they are considering. Just as with any other dental procedure or accessory there are a number of things to consider about them. While they do a fantastic job of amplifying our smile and eliminating minor cosmetic issues, there are also times where a person may experience problems with them.
One such example is when they break or crack. Not only can this be an uncomfortable and even painful experience, but it may also be an unsightly one. Needless to say, having it taken care of isn't something that you should delay. Here is a little bit more information about dealing with broken veneers:
Difference Between Breaking and Debonding
The first thing to do is to recognize what kind of problem you are having with it. Breaking and bonding are two different things, although they both require that you see the dentist as soon as possible.
With debonding, the veneer becomes dislodged without breaking. What this oftentimes means is that the dentist can re-cement the same veneer without having to make a new one. This is an incredibly simple procedure.
Unfortunately, most of the time when veneers come off it is because they broke off. This means that the remaining pieces will need to be carefully removed. You can put the pieces in a plastic baggy or a tissue to keep together until you return to the dentist. From there it is also possible that you may need a new bite evaluation before having another veneer made. Regardless of the severity of the break, it is essential that you get it taken care of ASAP.
