As you may know, dental veneers are thin shells designed to erase small gaps, brighten teeth, and to enhance the appearance of smiles in general. If you would like to enhance the appearance of your smile, we recommend dental veneers: if you’ve already had veneers, we hope you are enjoying your smile. But, did you know that your veneers can last for more than ten years if you take care of them well? In fact, with good care, you may be able to enjoy your improved smile for more than twenty years.
Naturally, the answer varies from person to person depending on individual circumstances, but you should expect your veneers to last for at least ten years. However, there is good news. If you care for your veneers properly, they could last for more than twenty years!
Protecting your veneers takes practically no extra effort. In fact, all you have to do is maintain sound oral hygiene. That means brushing, flossing, and visiting your dentist every six months for a routine cleaning. Also, even though veneers are stain-resistant, it may be best to avoid hard foods like nuts, and staining drinks like coffee and tea. It is also important to avoid chewing on things like pens and pencils. Your veneers will also last longer if you visit your dentist to deal with teeth grinding or clenching.
