What to Do When a Dental Veneer Falls Out

If you have a porcelain veneer that has fallen out, don't panic - it's not a dental emergency. A dental veneer is a thin layer of enamel that is attached to the front of the tooth with a special cement. Although it is durable, it can come off if it is under too much pressure. If your veneer falls off, the first thing to do is to pick up the pieces and wrap them in something soft like cotton or tissue.

Place them in a container with a lid to keep them safe from further damage. In some cases, the veneer can be repaired with composite resin or by polishing it, but if it is severely broken, it may need to be replaced. Veneers are a great option for treating chips, cracks, gaps between teeth, minor misalignments, or discoloration. If your veneer broke when it came off, usually the best option is to replace it because most broken veneers can't be repaired.

If you're having any issues with your veneers or any other part of your smile, you should visit your dentist as soon as possible. They will be able to provide you with the dental care you need quickly and efficiently.
