Can veneers be thinned out if they are thicker than you would like them to be?

Question:  My veneers are too thick, and the two front teeth stick out. They look nothing like my temps, and they look worse. Can they be thinned, or do I need to get them redone?

Sorry to hear that! I do not advise you to have them thinned out since you will never get the final glaze and shine after adjusting.
The second problem is the possibility of the show-through effect, in which the bonding can show through. If it is for minor contouring at the edges of your teeth, that can be accomplished by an expert cosmetic dentist; however, thinning out the veneers is a no-no.

Be informed that there is the possibility that the preparation of your teeth might need to be redone. If they are 0.5 mm thick, your teeth must be prepared more to give room for porcelain thickness, so they do not appear bulky. This is usually the problem with patients desiring lumineers or no prep veneers. For more information on no preps, click here:

Once they are bonded permanently, you either love them or, unfortunately, need to be redone. Usually, every dentist or cosmetic dentist asks for your approval before bonding them permanently, and if there is any issue, it can be addressed before final bonding.
