How Long Do Porcelain Veneers Last?

Posted .

Porcelain VeneersThe longevity of a dental solution like porcelain veneers can vary based on the professional performing the procedure and the individual receiving the restoration. With extensive experience in placing veneers, Dr. Jerry Strauss has helped countless patients correct problems like stains, chips, misalignment, and other tooth imperfections. When you come in for a consultation with Dr. Strauss, he will determine whether you are a good candidate for porcelain veneers, help you understand what to expect throughout the process, and stress the importance of proper maintenance for long-lasting results.

To help you preserve the structure of your porcelain veneers, you should follow the care recommendations listed below:

  • Visit your dentist on a routine basis
  • Practice good oral hygiene (brushing 2-3 times and flossing once daily)
  • Wear a nightguard if you tend to grind your teeth
  • Avoid habits that are harsh on teeth, like nail biting and ice chewing

Taking good care of the restoration will help protect their quality for as long as possible. At Aesthetic Dental Care, Dr. Strauss utilizes MAC Veneers™, which are made of pressed ceramic that offers increased durability. As a result, our patients may experience an even better life for their veneers, assuming proper care is practiced.
