What are the Disadvantages of Veneers?
A veneer is an effective solution for various types of teeth issues. However, like all dental procedures, they do have a few downsides. The first and perhaps the biggest reason why most people don’t get this procedure is the cost. Veneers tend to be quite expensive. According to the ADA, you can expect to pay between $925 and $2,500 for each tooth. The exact cost of the procedure depends on other factors such as the condition of your natural teeth and the material. Other possible downsides of getting a veneer include:
What Are The Risks Of Dental Veneers?
- Allergic reaction to anesthetics if used during the procedure
- Breakage or cracking
- Increase in natural teeth sensitivity
Can You Go Back To Normal Teeth After Porcelain Veneers?
During the procedure to add veneers to your natural teeth, the cosmetic dentist will remove some of the surface layers of your enamel. They will also roughen the surface of your natural tooth a little to ensure the veneer bonds with it properly. This change in the texture of your natural teeth is permanent and it cannot be reversed even if the veneer is removed.
