When cleaning teeth with porcelain veneers, dental professionals should use non-abrasive materials and avoid harsh instruments to prevent damage to the veneers.
Causes can vary, including minor injuries, stress, certain foods, or underlying conditions. If persistent, it’s crucial to see a dentist.
Porcelain veneers can effectively correct uneven wear patterns on teeth, restoring a more uniform appearance.
They might be impacted, cause crowding, be at risk for infections or cysts, or might not erupt properly due to lack of space.
