Examples of Poorly Crafted Veneers

Porcelain Veneers that haven’t been correctly placed can leave you with an unattractive, unnatural-looking smile. Either the shade may not be right for you, what you were trying to conceal like a crack, chip, or slight misalignment may not be adequately covered, or your oral health may not see any improvement. Bad veneers could wreck your already-delicate confidence.

She was seen on an emergency basis since she was to present herself for a speech. Porcelain veneers that pop off are a sign of a poorly engineered product possibly done by a dentist with little training in aesthetic dentistry. The veneers shown here look nothing like natural teeth. They are opaque with no variances in color. They are bulky, show no natural tooth anatomy and are ill fitting.
