Why do veneers keep falling off? Any other options?
Q. i broke half my front tooth off at junior school and had a veneer which over time stuck out and looked discoloured so aged 21 i decided to have a new veneer now 2 years later ive been through 3 veneers as they keep falling off, the 3rd 1 this morning! do you have any idea why they keep falling off? my dentist says the glue will never bond like it did the first time i had the veneer 12 years ago. am i wasting my time and £ with veneers? should i go for a crown? i’m worried it will look really different and it’ll be obvious its a crown.,
A. If the first veneer bonded successfully then a replacement should also bond. The veneer cements have a short shelf life and a material failure may be the problem.Please call StJohns Dental, Birmingham on 0121 643 0610 if you have further problems.Rob
