Frequently Asked Questions
Is the veneers procedure painful?
Any discomfort can be relieved with over-the-counter pain medications such as Ibuprofen or a cold compress.
Can porcelain veneers fall off?
A regular oral hygiene routine, in addition to scheduling biannual appointments at our Grand Rapids location, will ensure your veneers are intact and in their best shape. If a veneer falls off, be sure to keep it safe in a container and contact our office immediately by calling (616) 942-9595.
We may be able to re-adhere your veneer or provide a new one. It’s important to avoid trying to fix it on your own as this may damage the surface of the veneer, or your teeth or gums.
Do veneers ruin your teeth?
Are there any risks associated with getting veneers?
- If food is accumulating around the edges, you’ll need to have them adjusted
- If veneers aren’t bonded properly, they may turn a grayish color from food particles getting trapped underneath the veneers
- If veneers are too large, they can cause a gum infection
While issues are rare, you’ll want to be sure to undergo the procedure with a knowledgeable dentist such as Dr. Robson or Dr. Trapp to mitigate risks and ensure the best possible outcome for your new flawless smile. If you have any problems with your new veneers, contact our office immediately by calling (616) 942-9595 and we’ll get you an appointment at your earliest convenience.
