Six (6) Anterior Teeth Bonding

    Veneers Popping Off: I have six porcelein veneers on my upper front teeth.

    I've had them for about six years. The veneers are not wrap arounds and I've not experienced any tooth decay under them. My problem is they pop off quite often.

    Several dentists have told me the initial dentist removed a lot of my enamel so the adhesive doesn't work as effectively. I don't grind or bump them off.

    Is there a more effective adhesive that bonds to dentin more effectively? ...Visitor from FL

    Good question! Proper veneer placement does begin with proper tooth preparation.

    If veneers are properly bonded they should not pop off. If they do pop off occlusion should be checked.

    However, occlusion should have been checked at the initial diagnostic stage before anything was done and addressed at that time.

    Tooth preparation could have been different or other occlusal issues could have been resolved. Another problem that you have is that once veneers come off it is very difficult to bond them back into place with same bond strength.

    For some patients the best solution for such an issue would be to re-make the veneers and evaluate the occlusion. Hope this has helped.
