. Alteration of teeth: To fit the veneers, the tooth in focus needs to be altered or partially shed. This leads to weakening of the healthy teeth. Customized veneers are created with proper measurements to ensure minimum loss to the teeth.
. Irreversible: The procedure of placing veneers is not reversible that is, once you get a veneer there is no way back. Careful consideration and diagnosis is required before opting this treatment. However, properly placed veneers rarely develop any complications.
. Sensitivity due to dentine exposure: Efforts should be made by dentists to ensure less exposure to the dentine. This exposure may lead to sensitivity problems. However, sensitivity disappears in a week after the permanent veneers are fit.
. Pricey: Veneers have high costs.
. Porcelain dental veneers may chip or crack if you bite your nails, chew on ice, or grind your teeth.
