What Should You Do If Your Porcelain Veneer Debonds?
A porcelain veneer is a porcelain shell permanently bonded to the front of a tooth. Porcelain veneers are usually applied to worn down, discolored, chipped or broken teeth. They can last for many years if properly cared for. "Debonding" is what happens when the porcelain veneer comes off of the tooth in one large piece (versus breaking, which involves only a piece of the veneer coming off). If debonding occurs, you may be able to save the tooth, if you take the appropriate action.
