Porcelain veneers usually last between seven and ten years. Although dental veneers are cemented into place, they can come loose or break off. With broken veneers, patients should keep hold of the fractured veneer and contact the emergency dentist immediately.
The course of action taken to fix a broken veneer will depend on the age, veneer type, and its condition. Often the key to saving a veneer is to see a dentist as soon as a veneer chips or a crack appears.
Following a veneer fracture, we recommend that the damaged veneer be replaced. Some fractured veneer cases maybe repairable with an immediate composite bonding repair or re-cementing the fractured veneer back on and repairing it.
Patients are advised to be prepared for the existing veneer to be removed under local anaesthetic to make way for a new veneer. The patient is then provided with a temporary veneer whilst the dental laboratory produce a new porcelain veneer. Occasionally the patient may have to visit the dental laboratory so that the lab technicians there can match the new veneer shade to the shade of the current existing veneers and teeth.
