Busting Veneer Myths

Veneers can be a sure option for covering imperfect teeth. However, they are also highly misunderstood because of some persistent myths. It’s time to set some things straight.

Easy Breakage

Modern veneers are super-thin but are engineered to be close to the strength of natural teeth. Though they have a life expectancy, veneers can easily last five to 12 years with proper care it. It’s important to note that veneers are highly prone to chipping if you have a fondness for biting and chewing hard food, which are not good for your natural teeth in the first place.

Filing down First 

Reshaping a tooth may be needed, but the degree varies between people and most veneers are now ultra-thin. There are even varieties that require no grinding nor shaving of the tooth structure. 

Standing Out as Fake 

This is true years ago but modern veneers are basically translucent, letting your natural teeth color shine through. Clinicians of even more advanced practices use technology that expertly copies the color, shape, and thickness of the natural teeth, resulting in a seamless blend and more natural-looking smile.


Veneers can significantly enhance your entire face by highlighting your cheekbones, making your lips appear plumper, hiding teeth imperfections such as discoloration and crookedness, and making your face appear more symmetrical—but it doesn’t end there. Veneers can also be used to restore molars and replace worn out or misshapen teeth.
