Can My Porcelain Veneers Be Shortened?

Porcelain veneers are an excellent solution for numerous common cosmetic dental problems, including chipped, cracked or worn teeth, stains, and even gaps. Often people in Orange County have learned to live with these problems for so long that the appearance of a corrected smile can be a little jarring. Without proper communication upfront, some patients are dissatisfied with the appearance of their new smile and seek to change it further.

Shortening Porcelain Veneers

One common request is to shorten porcelain veneers that have been placed. While porcelain veneers are intended to be a permanent fix, there are some situations where this can be achieved. Shortening porcelain veneers depends on several factors:

• How thick the porcelain veneer is
• Whether shortening will cause a gap
• Whether a noticeable difference can be achieved

To shorten your porcelain veneers, it is best to have x-rays taken to see how much material can be safely removed. Using this information, your cosmetic dentist can use Photoshop or other techniques to help you decide if it is truly worth it.
