Does Gum Disease Damage Dental Veneers?

Posted on 1/18/2021 by Dr. Hallas
Gum disease is unfortunately quite common in adults all over the world. Gum disease can lead to serious problems for your oral and overall health, ranging from tooth loss to cardiovascular issues. If you have perfected your smile with porcelain veneers, that does not mean you are immune to gum disease. Read on to learn how gum disease can affect veneers. Gum Disease and Your Teeth Gum disease or periodontal disease is primarily caused by a lack of proper oral hygiene, but there are other factors that can put you at a greater risk as well. Some of these risk factors include genetics, chronic dry mouth, diabetes, smoking or using other tobacco products, and heavy alcohol consumption. Periodontal disease is largely preventable and can usually be reversed in its earliest stages before it progresses into advanced periodontitis. With gum disease, your gum tissue begins pulling away from your teeth and your gums may visually appear to be receding. You might also experience bleeding gums when you brush your teeth, red or swollen gums, and heightened sensitivity to hot and cold foods and beverages. If gum disease goes untreated and your gums continue to pull away from your teeth, your teeth will start to loosen and can eventually fall out. How Does Gum Disease Affect Veneers? Veneers are simply porcelain shells or covers that attach to the front of your teeth, covering up cosmetic issues such as discoloration, chips, gaps, and more. They do not cover the whole tooth like a crown or replace a tooth root like a dental implant. You can still develop gum disease if you have veneers; just like natural teeth, teeth with veneers can loosen and fall out because of periodontal disease. Gum disease can potentially even cause veneers to separate from the teeth underneath. If you develop gum disease after getting veneers, treatment will most likely consist of a root canal, which could mean removing the veneer from the affected tooth and placing a crown over it instead. It is important to remain diligent about your oral hygiene and care for your veneers properly to not only keep them looking beautiful and extend their lifespan, but to prevent tooth decay and gum disease as well. If you already have some form of periodontal disease and would like veneers, it is important to have your gum disease treated first. At your consultation appointment, we will perform a thorough examination to determine the best treatment plan and figure out if veneers are a viable option for you. Contact us today....
