    Question:
    Veneer problem on front left tooth: When I was 10 a kid punched me in the face and I fell to the ground.

    When I fell, half of my left front tooth chipped off. I had my dentist rebond the half that chipped. Years later I got an absess on the tooth and had to have a root canal. The tooth's nerve had been dead since the incident when I was 10.

    I then got veneers placed on my four front teeth. Now at age 17, my 3 veneers are fine, however my front left tooth's veneer fell off yesterday. I got it rebonded the same day, but the bonding agent seems to be weakening. Anything I can do to help it last 6 weeks at this summer program I'm going to? ...Visitor from Beverly Hills

    Answer:
    When veneers are bonded well, they do not come off.

    It sounds like the re-bonding was not done thoroughly enough to hold the veneer on your tooth.

    In all fairness to the dentist, it is very difficult re-bond a veneer successfully because there usually is some old bonding material stuck to the porcelain microscopically.

    You can't see it with the naked eye. The old bonding material prevents the veneer from bonding successfully the second time around.

    Magnification dentistry helps locate the old material so it can be removed from the veneer and your natural tooth. Then your veneer can be successfully re-bonded.
