Can Veneers Be Replaced?

Dental veneers are made out of porcelain or composite resin material, and are tooth colored shells that are bonded to the front of teeth. Veneers can help patients who have uneven, stained, chipped, or misshapen teeth. Dental veneers are great to help close gaps between teeth or create an even smile.

At The Foleck Center we provide many services from general dentistry to cosmetic dentistry and much more. We are the preferred dentist for veneers in Norfolk, and we welcome you to come visit one of our four locations.

Veneers can last for more than a decade, but over time there may be issues that cause the need for replacement. If a patient has an injury or other oral health issues, veneers have the ability to be removed or replaced. We welcome new patients needing veneer replacement to join The Foleck Center Family, and we look forward to becoming your preferred dentist in Norfolk, VA.

What Are the Reasons Veneers May Need To Be Replaced?

Injury or Damage

Our skilled doctors have years of experience in cosmetic dentistry, and can safely remove the veneer from the tooth’s surface. Typically, veneers are only removed if they are cracked or damaged due to injury, or from chewing on hard objects.


If there is decay or damage to the underlying tooth, we will need to remove the veneer in order to repair the tooth underneath.

Loose Veneer

If your veneer has become loose from wear and tear, bacteria may be able to accumulate behind the veneer. In this case we will remove the veneer to prevent damage or decay to the underlying tooth.


Porcelain veneers are highly durable and are also resistant to stains. Over time, teeth can discolor gradually and start to bother patients, making their smile look uneven. Veneers can not be whitened, but if the patient would like a more even colored smile, we typically recommend replacing the veneers.

How Does Replacing Dental Veneers Work?

During your consultation with our team, we will discuss the veneer replacement process so you know what to expect. We welcome any questions, and will provide you with tips and tricks to help care for your veneers at home.

When we replace veneers, we remove the original veneer from the teeth. If there are any issues with decay, those are treated before the new veneer is installed. The tooth is cleaned thoroughly to remove any cement, and this ensures the new veneer adheres properly. We then take dental impressions or images to create your new veneers. Once the veneers are ready, we bond them to your teeth and your smile is restored!
