Is Tooth Trimming or Shaving a Requirement for Veneers?
Posted on 9/6/2021 by Crossroads Family Dental
Dental veneers are one possible solution for covering and hiding imperfections in your teeth. Many people are thankful for dental veneers as they attain their dream smile using dental veneers. These natural tooth-colored covers permanently adhere to your teeth. They are strong and tend to last a long time. Dental veneers create a uniform look while hiding your chipped, cracked, or misshapen teeth. Several steps are necessary to place dental veneers.
Why do Dentists Shave a Tooth
If you are wondering if tooth trimming or shaving is a necessary requirement for dental veneers, we do not have a simple answer for you. We must look at each patient, case by case, and decide the best course of action so that the dental veneer will adhere and look best. Sometimes we do not have to trim or shave teeth to place the veneer on your tooth. Other times, trimming is necessary. We will remove a small amount of enamel from the front and sides of the tooth or teeth if we feel this is necessary. This allows the dental veneer to fit naturally.
