How Long Can Veneers Last?

Are you tired of your dull, yellowing or chipped teeth and want a quick way to a perfect smile. Dental veneers are perfect for just those situations. Dental veneers usually last anywhere from 10-15 years, depending on the care and treatment they receive.

Understanding how veneers are applied and what they are made of will help you know what types of activities will shorten their lifespan.

What Are Dental Veneers?

Dental veneers are a thin, white shell of porcelain or resin that are custom-made to precisely fit over your natural teeth giving you a naturally beautiful look.

Dental Veneers are perfect for people with: chipped, stained, gapped, yellowed, uneven or worn teeth. Unlike our natural teeth, veneers also resist food or beverage stains. At Reason To Smile, we offer custom dental veneers for all these conditions.

Tips For Long-Lasting Veneers

Because veneers are thin layers of material applied to your teeth, they are vulnerable to the same hazards as the teeth they cover. Here are a few tips to keeping your veneers in tip top shape for years to come:

  • Good Oral Hygiene: Following good oral hygiene practices is always important whenever your teeth are involved. Brush twice a day, floss and have regular dental check-ups.
  • Wear Tooth Protection: When participating in sporting events or any event that compromises your teeth, wearing a mouth guard will protect your veneers from becoming chipped or damaged.
  • Need Something Opened?: We’ve all used our teeth to open a bag or loosen a knot. But, do not use your teeth as tools. This can chip and damage your dental veneers and your natural teeth.
  • Tooth Grinding?: Do you grind your teeth at night? If so, before you think about dental veneers, you should have this addressed with your dentist as it can cause chips to your veneers.
