Myth #1: My Teeth Will Be More Sensitive!
A common complaint people have about veneers is tooth sensitivity. Once your permanent veneers are in place, as long as the process was performed properly, your teeth shouldn’t be more sensitive. Of course, this can all depend on the pre-existing conditions of the patient’s teeth.
Myth #2: Veneers Look So Fake!
One of the biggest myths surrounding dental veneers is that they look fake, whether this is about the veneer itself or the color of the veneer. You don’t have to worry about Farmington Hills, MI, veneers making your smile look fake because your cosmetic dentist will work with you to ensure that the exact shape and shade of your new teeth match your natural smile.
Myth #3: My Entire Tooth Must Be Filed Down!
Some people believe that a lot of damage must occur to the natural tooth in order to get a veneer. While it is true that some filing must be done to the tooth that is getting the veneer placed on it to ensure a proper fit, it is not a significant amount. However, the dentist will focus on removing as little of the natural tooth structure as possible.
