Veneers are a lasting, affordable, and quick cosmetic fix for imperfections in your teeth that prevent you from having the smile you have always wanted.

How long do veneers last?

How long your veneers will last is directly determined on how you care for them. Veneers generally, if properly cared, last between 10 and 15 years.

After this time, the veneers might need to be replaced.

They do not require any special care other than regular brushing, and flossing.

Professional cleanings every 6 months and yearly exams are highly recommended.

Here are guidelines to ensure your porcelain veneers last as long as possible:

  • Avoid excessive soda, red wine, coffee, tea and other staining agents
  • Avoid grinding your teeth
  • Avoid bitting your nails
  • Avoid chewing hard foods or ice
