Can My Porcelain Veneers Be Removed?

porcelain veneers are permanent cosmetic dentistry enhancements for your teeth. Porcelain veneers require some of your natural tooth enamel to be shaved off in order to accommodate the thin porcelain shells. This enamel reduction is often minimal, but removing your veneers will likely leave your teeth vulnerable and highly sensitive to cold or hot temperatures. If you want your porcelain veneers removed, you’ll have to have them replaced with either an alternative cosmetic enhancement or new veneers.

Our cosmetic dentist, Dr. Norman Huefner, realizes porcelain veneers are a big decision. He will not only answer all of your questions, but also suggest the best way to reach your aesthetic goals. Dr. Huefner puts a heavy focus on your needs and will go over these veneer options and more:

It’s important to do your research before undergoing an invasive cosmetic dentistry procedure. Keep in mind, you have other veneer options such as Lumineers®, which don’t require your enamel to be reduced and can be removed later if you’d like.

There are many aspects of porcelain veneers and smile makeovers to consider before you commit. Ask our dentist if there is a less-invasive option to correct your tooth discoloration, uneven bite or crooked teeth, which would allow you to keep your natural tooth enamel while still getting the perfect smile you’re looking for.

If you’re interested in porcelain veneers, please call Dr. Huefner today at 949-495-6322 to schedule your exam. Our cosmetic dentistry office serves patients in Orange County, Laguna Niguel and surrounding areas of California.
