Transcript: You’re not going to wake up one day and the porcelain veneers are gonna pop off on you and we get this question a lot, same thing with Lumineers, veneers basically become part of your teeth. I have veneers on my teeth and I don’t expect my teeth to one day just all of a sudden all of these veneers pop off. But you can get cavities, so anything that can happen to a natural tooth can happen to your veneers. If you can chip a tooth, you can chip a veneer. If you grind your teeth and you grind them away, you can grind your veneers, even though they’re very strong you can wear them down. If you can get a cavity in a tooth, you can get a cavity in a veneer. So, these things are all stuff that you can get with a veneer as well as a natural tooth.
