Myth 1 - I cut all my teeth
This fear is false, and it appeared due to the widespread use of prosthetics with crowns. For their installation it is really necessary to grind healthy teeth strongly enough. To install veneers, the teeth are also ground, but affect only the enamel and only on the front surface in the area of the smile. The thickness of the enamel decreases by 0.1 - 0.3 mm. It does not affect the functionality of the teeth.
Myth 2 - caries is formed under veneers
Caries occurs due to the fact that the teeth are affected by acid. It occurs during the breakdown of carbohydrates that remain in the plaque after eating. But veneers are installed on a prepared, thoroughly cleaned and dried, sterile surface. Due to the tightness of the connection, pieces of food can not get under the plates. That part of the tooth, where the enamel is turned, remains as if "preserved".
Myth 3 - teeth will become hypersensitive
Misconception, veneers securely cover the part of the enamel that has been treated, and do not allow hot and cold food to affect the nerve endings.
