If you have veneers and your gums have receded, exposing dark root surfaces, consult with a cosmetic dentist to find out the cause of the problem and the best long term solution for its correction. That solution may not always be replacing the veneers.
Sometimes, replacing with new veneers could make the teeth appear too long. In some instances, replacing the lost gum tissue with a graft will give a more aesthetic and healthier result. If you have some darkness at the gum line, it is sometimes possible for the dentist to remove and reseal the margins of the veneers. You may not have to replace your veneers if this can be done and you are still happy with the color, shape, and appearance.
If your veneers were placed more than ten years ago, there are whiter shades now available. If you want your teeth whiter, then the old veneers would have to be replaced. A whiter veneer should have a transition in color so that as it gets toward the gum line, it will blend and look more natural.
