How Long Do Veneers Last?

Today, we're tackling a question that's been on the minds of many patients considering veneers: How long do veneers last? 

What Are Veneers?

Veneers are a popular cosmetic dental solution, designed to enhance your smile's appearance. They are thin, custom-made shells of tooth-colored materials, usually porcelain, bonded to the front of your teeth. Veneers are a great solution for addressing a variety of dental issues, including discolored, worn down, chipped, broken, misaligned, or uneven teeth. They can also be used to close gaps between teeth. When it comes to veneers, Dr. Daniel Jankowski at Sunrise Dentistry is your go-to expert.

The Lifespan Of Veneers

So, how long do veneers last? On average, veneers can last between 10 to 15 years. However, the lifespan of your veneers can depend on several factors, including the quality of the veneers, the expertise of your dentist, and your oral hygiene habits. With proper care and regular dental check-ups, some veneers can even last up to 20 years or more. 

Maintaining Your Veneers

Proper care and maintenance of your veneers are essential for ensuring their longevity and preserving your smile. Here are some key practices to follow:

  • Regular Brushing: Brush your teeth twice a day with a non-abrasive toothpaste to keep your veneers clean and free from plaque.
  • Daily Flossing: Flossing daily helps to remove food particles and plaque from between the teeth and veneers, preventing gum disease and tooth decay.
  • Routine Dental Check-ups and Cleanings: Regular visits to your dentist for check-ups and professional cleanings are crucial to maintain both your natural teeth and veneers.
  • Avoiding Hard Foods: To prevent chipping or breaking your veneers, avoid biting down on hard objects like ice, hard candy, or fingernails.
  • Limiting Stain-Inducing Substances: Minimize consumption of stain-causing foods and beverages like coffee, red wine, tea, and berries to keep your veneers looking bright.
  • Wearing a Mouthguard: If you grind your teeth at night, consider wearing a mouthguard to protect your veneers from excessive wear and tear.
  • Not Smoking: Smoking can stain both your natural teeth and veneers, so avoiding tobacco can help maintain the appearance of your veneers.
  • Using Gentle Oral Hygiene Products: Choose soft-bristled toothbrushes and gentle dental care products to avoid scratching or damaging the surface of your veneers.
