How long do porcelain veneers last?
In general, veneers that are properly made and bonded to your teeth can last as long as 20 years. However, there are many factors that can affect the longevity of your veneers, so the answer is really different for each person.
Veneers are made of thin slices of porcelain that are custom-made by Dr. Sanati and Dr. Shahram to fit the surface of your natural tooth. Porcelain is a very strong and durable material, and for this reason, is used in many other dental restorations like crowns and dental bonding.
The idea of these thin pieces of porcelain may make you think that they’re fragile. But after the veneers are prepared, they are bonded securely to the surface of the use and should give you many years of use.
Staying On Top Of Your Hygiene
Oral hygiene plays a big part in keeping your veneers in top shape. Proper oral hygiene at home and regular dental cleanings at our Vienna dental office are essential for protecting your veneers.
Other factors that can affect the life of your veneers is your dental bite and, of course, a blow to the tooth. Porcelain veneers are very strong, but in the end, good common sense will tell you that they need to be cared for like any dental restoration.
