How Long Do Veneers Last
How long do veneers last? That’s the question of the day, but there’s no one size fits all answer to how long dental veneers last; it depends on your situation.
Contrary to popular belief, dental veneers are not meant to last forever. Generally, dental veneers will last anywhere from 5 to 15 years (or more) depending on their quality, wear and care and lifestyle habits.
Poor oral hygiene can significantly shorten their lifespan, so be sure to visit your dentist for regular cleanings! If you go to the dentist every six months to have your veneers cleaned, floss regularly, and avoid certain foods (especially those with high acid content), then you can expect your veneers to last about ten years or more.
Front Teeth Crowns vs. Veneers
Which one is right for you? When it comes to cosmetic dental procedures, veneers and crowns tend to get lumped together. But they’re quite different, with benefits and drawbacks specific to each type of restorative dentistry. Which treatment is right for you will depend on a variety of factors: how much tooth structure needs to be restored; whether or not teeth have been stained by any discolouring agent; your willingness to undergo anaesthesia; etc.
The best way to find out which one works best for you is by speaking with a trusted dentist who can explain both options in-depth—and show you pictures of their work.
How Do Veneers Work
Veneers are thin, tooth-coloured shells that can be bonded to your teeth to make them look better. If your teeth are damaged, discoloured, misaligned or misshapen, dental veneers can improve their appearance without affecting their underlying structure.
Because they’re so effective and convenient, most dentists see them as a helpful cosmetic tool in their toolbox; it’s hard to beat something that can make a single appointment fix multiple issues at once!
They’re less invasive than crowns or dental implants but still provide you with a beautiful smile. If you don’t like your smile, consider getting porcelain veneers from your dentist. They could be a great way to transform your smile without making any drastic changes.
Now that you know what to expect, it’s time to decide whether or not dental veneers are right for you. If they are, and if your dentist recommends that you have them installed, try not to be scared of them.
They’re no more difficult than any other procedure your dentist might recommend and they can drastically change your life. Your whole smile will be transformed by dental veneers and everything from self-confidence levels to job interviews will improve as a result.
