A veneer is where a portion of the tooth enamel is removed and a thin shell of porcelain is placed on the outer surface of the tooth. It is usually done for cosmetic purposes. If excess enamel is removed then this may be considered below the acceptable standard of care.
Sometimes a patient’s expectations are not met. It is important that the dentist has mock trials and computer images to show to the patient prior to the veneer fitting. The dentist should also ensure that the patient is happy with the likely outcome. If the patient’s expectations are not met then this could lead to a claim.
Other problems that can occur following the fitting of veneers is where the teeth do not bite correctly. A small reduction of the opposing teeth may be necessary to correct the bite.
