With the proper care, quality porcelain veneers can last several years, sometimes decades. Though many dental veneers are similar in that they are fabricated from a strong porcelain material, there are a variety of other factors that can impact the lifespan of this popular cosmetic dental option, including:
- Type of veneer
- Caliber of the dental lab in which the veneer is made
- Quality of the technology used to design and create the veneer
- Particular bonding method utilized
- Skill and expertise of the cosmetic dentist
Individuals who have a habit of grinding and/or clenching their teeth while they sleep may want to consider wearing a nightguard to keep their veneers protected throughout the night. Additionally, regular brushing, flossing, professional dental cleanings from a reputable dentist can help to prolong the life of porcelain veneers. In the event a veneer becomes damaged, it can generally be replaced relatively easily without having to address any others that remain in good condition.
