10 Jul Can I get infection under a veneer?
You can get an infection under a veneer if you don’t implement the right dental hygiene .
A porcelain veneer has composite materials. Over time, it can erode or develop infections due to a number of reasons such as poor dental hygiene, poorly fitted veneers, and so on.
The underlying tooth where the veneer is placed will then be susceptible to an infection. If the bacteria is left unaddressed, these will enter underneath the veneers and build up as time goes by. Thus, the teeth and even the gum tissues surrounding the veneer will suffer the effects of such infection.
With these things in mind, it is important to make sure that the right dental practices are followed. You need to implement the right dental hygiene such as flossing, rinsing, and brushing, which can get rid of the bacteria. These practices can help reduce the risks of an infection. By doing so, you can prolong not just the lifespan of your veneers but also the overall health of your gums and teeth.
