As for the underlying tooth or the teeth involved, nothing wrong happens. Because a dentist only needs to remove a small amount of enamel, nerves and roots are never touched. With the veneers in place, the person's natural teeth remain intact. Natural teeth simply serve as the basis for new veneers.
Porcelain veneers don't harm your teeth in any way, as long as you see a qualified cosmetic dentist like ours at Burkburnett Family Dental. If your teeth are discolored, chipped, or misaligned, your dentist may recommend dental veneers to improve the appearance of your smile. If you're looking for veneers to cover damaged or weakened teeth, veneers offer an additional level of protection against tooth decay and also help preserve tooth structure.
