Veneers are as vulnerable as natural teeth.There are several things that you can do to ensure that your porcelain veneers do not require repair or replacement:
Initially, individuals should ensure they visit their dentist as soon as they can if a chip or fissure is noticed on the film, as the longer it is left, the more often the installation will become damaged beyond repair
Visit your dentist twice a year
Brush and floss regularly
Wear mouth guards when playing contact sports
Do not chew on objects not meant to be chewed

what is Dental veneers ?
Veneers are an effective way to restore teeth that are chipped, stained, discoloured, crooked or have gaps. A veneer is a thin layer of porcelain made to fit over the front surface of a tooth, like a false fingernail fits over a nail. A veneer can make a chipped tooth look intact again. The porcelain covers the whole of the front of the tooth with a thicker section replacing the broken part.
