Do Porcelain Veneers Fall Off?

There has been much research in the field of aesthetic dentistry over the last 20 years that has looked into why any treatment should fail and why there may have been associated with dentistry.

These issues have now been addressed, and solutions have been sought.

As with anything, the research will always be progressive and ongoing as newer and newer techniques and products are introduced. We continue to implement new techniques at our Hertfordshire clinic.

One of the main concerns has been whether veneers come off, leaving an unsightly tooth beneath and a discrepant smile.

This problem has been explored in much detail, and we have now addressed all the different facets that may have weakened the veneer in the first place.

Bonding strengths of veneers to tooth

There have now been numerous advancements with innovative technology and improved techniques that now mean that the bonding agents used to cement veneers to teeth are extremely strong. This means that it is unlikely that a veneer should come off or fall off after the final fitting of the teeth.

Other Factors

Bite abnormalities 

The chewing and speaking patterns dynamics are essential when considering the forces applied to teeth. We have looked into why a veneer would come off, and one of the reasons has been that there may have been imbalances in the bite.

The top and bottom teeth should work harmoniously to create a stable bite. If there are any discrepancies, then they can cause unnecessary forces to be applied to different teeth. This is also true of speech patterns, as teeth are used when talking.

If any pre-existing minor threats such as bruxism (teeth grinding & clenching), gum disease, or tooth decay exist, this needs to be considered and managed as part of the overall treatment plan. 

Before veneers are fitted, a specialist dentist needs to examine the state of your oral health, hygiene and the condition of its foundation before prescribing veneers.

How Long Do Veneers Last?

Veneers are nowadays constructed of immensely strong porcelains shells.

This means they are unlikely to fracture and come off when using the teeth after treatment.

Correct fitting techniques

The dentist needs to use the correct techniques when fitting veneers to teeth. Premium quality materials should be used without shortcuts in the cementation process. During the fitting, the bonding agents and the veneer material should be highly compatible to allow for high bonding strengths.

Accurate Cementation techniques carried out in the hands of a highly-skilled, professional dentist will produce long-lasting results. The adhesion process is very important, and we always follow strict protocols to ensure the best possible outcome.

Pain-free Treatments

Veneers are usually not painful whilst you are having the treatment.

However, some have reported slight sensitivity during the settling down after the final fitting – this is quite normal and nothing to worry over. It usually only lasts for a few days and very soon after subsidies. More.

The sensitivity is due to the bonding process where an inorganic substance (the veneer) bonded to an organic component (your tooth).

In complex cases, involving a large amount of treatment, you may experience a little uncomfortableness while your teeth settle down.

Treatment Plan
  • At your first appointment, your dentist will look at the general health of your teeth and gums, your bite and understand your goals for your smile; and then see if any fundamental issues need addressing before cosmetic veneer work can begin.
  • We will also discuss the type of veneers that may be suitable and how many veneers you’ll likely need to achieve your desired smile. In some patients, it may be possible to get some veneers placed at an initial phase and then have the possibility of additional shells in the future.


Minimal or No Preparation
  • We will always plan your new smile before any treatment begins. We aim to provide you with the most conservative and preservative dentistry.
  • To prevent excessive tooth preparation, we design your new smile in a way that minimises tooth preparation. We also provide options to have orthodontic or teeth straightening treatment carried out before any cosmetic veneer work starts.
  • Your teeth are already well aligned, so very minimal or hardly any tooth preparation becomes necessary.
  • If you are concerned, we advise that you speak to us in your complimentary consultation. We will be able to provide you with suitable solutions. More.
