Porcelain veneers are a great way to get the dazzling smile you've always wanted. They can treat chips, cracks, gaps between teeth, minor misalignments, or discoloration. But what happens when your veneers fall out? It's important to act quickly and contact your dentist as soon as possible to reapply the veneers. Otherwise, the teeth will be exposed to air that can irritate the tooth pulp. At your appointment with the dentist, they will first make sure that you are comfortable and that there are no persistent fragments of the veneer left.
Chipped, cracked, or chipped porcelain veneers can sometimes be repaired with a composite resin, but this material isn't as realistic or durable as dental porcelain and is likely to cause problems in the future. If your veneer broke when it came off, usually the best option is to replace it because most broken veneers can't be repaired. Before accepting the veneers, your dentist should have told you that they would last 15 to 20 years. But if you have to return to the dental office every month for the next 20 years, it's not worth it. If you find yourself in this situation, don't delay in getting your veneers replaced.
