What Are The Risks Involved With Getting Dental Veneers?

Feature Image 2 Veneers 2

Dental Veneers are tooth colored shells that are bonded to the front of teeth. Veneers are made out of porcelain or composite resin material, and match the shade of your natural teeth. Patients that have misshapen, stained, uneven, or chipped teeth are good candidates for veneers.


Veneers can also help to close gaps between teeth, or help to create an even smile. Veneers give patients a great solution for those looking for a natural white smile. At Benton Family Dentistry, we provide our patients cosmetic dental treatments in Hot Springs, AR and we are always helping our patients achieve the perfect bright white smile.

What Are The Risks I Should Be Aware of?

When choosing the best cosmetic treatment at our dental office in [insert city, state], patients want to look at all of their options, and understand any risks involved. Veneers are permanent, and once they are applied they are not reversible. Patients must be in good oral health for veneers, and free of gum disease. Teeth must also be stable and in good condition. Part of our consultation process is to discuss each patient’s health, as well as examine the condition of their teeth to determine the best cosmetic treatment plan.

If patients suffer from bruxism or grind their teeth, veneers may not be a good choice. The veneers can be damaged from teeth grinding, and this can decrease the life of the veneer. If veneers do crack or chip they typically cannot be fixed, so we do recommend patients take good care of their veneers.

Tooth whitening should be done prior to getting your veneers, and this will help to ensure the veneers match the color of your existing teeth. If your veneers are damaged, or the tooth has decay, the tooth may need to be replaced with a crown.


Veneers are a great solution for patients seeking an even white smile. Veneers are durable, and last anywhere between 10-15 years, but they do come with risks. Dr. Kyle Benton recommend patients take good care of their veneers at home to ensure they last, and are kept in great condition.

How Can I Care For My Dental Veneers?

  • Brush and floss daily to protect your veneers and keep them clean.
  • Avoid eating any dark foods or drinks that may stain your teeth or veneers.
  • Avoid biting or chewing on hard foods or objects that can harm the veneers.
    • Avoid grinding your teeth, as this can cause damage to the veneers.
  • Attend regular dental exams in our office. Our staff will ensure your veneers look and feel great, and let you know if we see any issues.
