Repairing veneers

It’s possible to repair by buffing away the damage and contouring. If not possible, there’s a chance we can use bonding to save the tooth.

Reattaching veneers

If the veneer is intact and in good condition, we might be able to reattach it. But in most cases, it’s better to replace the veneer.

Replacement veneers

If your veneers are old or broken, we can replace them with new ones if the underlying tooth remains undamaged.

Broken veneer costs

Please note if you require a new porcelain veneer, it can take up to three weeks and three appointments, but temporaries are available during this time. “Immediate” composite veneers, however, only take one hour.

  • Is the veneer debonded or broken in two?
  • Has the veneer been chipped or cracked?
  • Are your veneers causing you pain?

You should treat damaged veneers immediately.

Signs and symptoms you need a new veneer:

  • There are spaces/gaps between the veneer and gum
  • The veneer has chips, cracks or a fracture line
  • The veneers appear dark and discoloured
  • The veneer feels loose or rough around the edges

Patients should book an emergency appointment if their veneer has fallen off or broken, as the underlying tooth is exposed an can cause sensitivity due to enamel removal.

4 years a customer and always professional yet friendly service. Corrected my major issues (fillings/caps) and while they’re keen to ensure ongoing ‘perfect teeth’ they don’t hard sell peripheral / optional treatments. Highly recommended

I was looking for somewhere with a personal touch, that I could trust and that’s what I got at Mint. They always remember my name and are so polite. After a year of zoom meetings I really wanted my teeth to be straight and the results completely surpassed my expectations. I now feel comfortable taking photos! The team explained everything clearly (I felt I could ask anything multiple times) appointments were always organised and it was a really easy, worthwhile process. My teeth look like my teeth but are now at their best.

The clinic is a really lovely place to visit – it is extremely clean and all of the staff are very friendly. They were kind and reassuring all the way through my Invisalign treatment – as well as having amazing technology at their disposal. Dr Imran is so accommodating and kept everything simple, addressing any concerns straight away. All in all I would definitely recommend Mint Dental Clinic, a lovely experience all round.

Excellent dental practice. A very smartly turned-out surgery. Staff are polite and very professional. I am impressed with the modern teeth scanning equipment. Dr Raj Patel will put you at ease. He is highly professional dentist. I have no problem in recommending Dr Patel and the rest of the Mint team.

Saving broken veneers

Three optional routes:

  • Repairing the broken or debonded veneer.
  • Replacing the damaged veneer. Temporaries whilst you wait.
  • Rebonding the veneer that’s come loose or broken off.

In some scenarios, we can repair the veneer with bonding. But this will depend on the type of veneer you have and the extent of the damage. For example, it’s simple to fix problems with composite veneers, whereas with porcelain, it’s not easy or always possible.

For example, porcelain is, unfortunately, not a repairable dental material. If it cracks or breaks, it often requires total replacement.

However, we won’t know if we can save your current veneer without taking a look. Book an appointment for £75 to see what can be done today and the best next steps we can take to restore your aesthetics.

Broken veneer advice

Don’t try to manage your veneer at home. Replace it safely with cosmetic dentists.

  • From tooth grinding
  • As a result of biting down hard into hard foods
  • Due to tooth decay behind the veneer
  • From a sudden blow or impact to the face
  • As a result of incorrect design and placement

As porcelain veneers involved removing a small portion of enamel to place, you should look into getting your veneer replaced as soon as possible. This is because the underlying tooth is more vulnerable and will be much more sensitive than you’ll be used to. 

If in rare cases, where the veneer has fallen off, loosened or detached from the tooth without breaking, it might be possible to rebond the tooth, or quickly attach it using dental adhesives. If the veneer is porcelain and sustained a crack, chip or break, there’s a slight possibility we can fix it. If not, a replacement veneer will be required.

It usually takes one appointment to reattach a veneer, or to place a new one. However, the majority of the time is taken up through designing and custom-designing your new veneer, if you’ve opted for porcelain. Temporaries are provided with porcelain veneers during this time. Composite veneers on the other hand are immediate and sculpted in the chair.

  • Emergency appointment from £75.
  • Dental veneer repairs from £90.
  • Porcelain veneer replacements from £850. Available on 0% finance over 12 months for £70.83 per month.
