Are Dental Veneers Long Lasting?

Porcelain dental veneers are one of the most conservative ways you can achieve a smile makeover, and when veneer treatment is provided on healthy teeth with full understanding of how your teeth work together (your bite), the treatment can be very long-lasting.

Because you and your dentist want your dentistry to predictably last a long time without need of repair or replacement, your Smile Design Dentistry dentist will consider whether dental veneers are an appropriate treatment for your circumstances. There may be other treatments to achieve your goals that would provide even more optimal results. Your dentist will spend time with you, examining your mouth and explaining the advantages and disadvantages of treatment options, as well as the process and costs involved. For many people, porcelain veneers have been the right solution to improve the aesthetics of their smile.

When properly done, dental veneers are long lasting and can last decades without replacement. Under good occlusal conditions with healthy teeth and gum tissue, custom fit porcelain veneers are extremely durable. They do not stain, and they strengthen the outside of teeth. If you have an accident and chip a veneer, it can be replaced with a new veneer.

To make sure your veneers will be long lasting, your Smile Design Dentist dentist will evaluate how your teeth come together when you bite, chew, speak, and are resting. Your dentist will take into consideration whether you grind your teeth at night and will want to make sure that each tooth that is to receive a veneer is healthy and has sufficient dental enamel for preparation for veneer placement.
