FaQ – Porcelain Veneers

How long do porcelain veneers last?

Porcelain veneers typically last for many years, often ranging from 10 to 15 years or more with proper care. Their longevity depends on factors like the quality of the veneers, the precision of the application, and the patient’s oral hygiene habits. Regular dental visits are crucial for maintaining the veneers’ condition.

Are porcelain veneers prone to chipping or breaking?

While porcelain veneers are relatively strong and durable, they can chip or break if exposed to excessive force or hard objects. It is advisable to avoid habits like biting nails, chewing ice, or using teeth as tools to extend the life of veneers. However, with normal use, veneers are quite resilient.

Can porcelain veneers be whitened like natural teeth?

Porcelain veneers are resistant to staining and do not respond to traditional teeth whitening treatments. The color of the veneers is set during the manufacturing process and remains consistent throughout their lifespan. It’s important to choose a shade that will remain aesthetically pleasing, as it cannot be altered once applied.
