Can Dental Cavities Develop on Teeth with Porcelain Veneers?

Attractive woman smilingPorcelain dental veneers are a restoration option used to hide or fix a number of cosmetic problems with the teeth. These veneers are thin ceramic sheets adhered to the front of the teeth with dental concrete. Dental veneers are a quick and simple way to make a dramatic enhancement to the smile.

Many patients have questions about whether dental cavities can still develop on teeth with porcelain veneers. The short answer is yes, they can. Because dental veneers only cover the front of the tooth, the rest of your tooth is still as vulnerable to tooth decay and dental cavities as it was before the veneer was placed.

Preventing Dental Cavities on Teeth with Veneers

Caring for your teeth once dental veneers have been placed is the same as caring for them before. As long as you’re continuing to practice good at-home oral hygiene and visit SpringRock Dental every six months for a dental cleaning and exam, your veneers can last a lifetime.

At-home oral hygiene should include brushing your teeth at least twice a day with fluoride toothpaste and flossing every day. To make an appointment at SpringRock Dental, please contact our Aurora, Colorado dental office today.
