Cavities with Veneers
Can You Still Get Cavities with Veneers?
Yes, it is possible to get cavities with veneers on the uncovered portion of the tooth. Watch this educational video by Mark Teach, an experienced Buffalo Veneer Dentist to learn more.. If you have questions, or would like to schedule a dental appointment, please contact us today.
Veneers are usually placed on the teeth in order to hide discoloration, and they can form protective shells around the teeth, fending off bacteria and plaque. The teeth can still decay, however, because there is a fine edge between the veneer and the tooth. Without proper home care and dedication to thorough cleanings of the teeth, bacteria can slip under the veneers, and the teeth can decay just as those without veneers do.
