Do Veneers Need to be Replaced?

Porcelain dental veneers should last between 10 to 15 years. However, with proper care you can extend their lifespan.

Key takeaways:

  • Use a quality toothbrush to gently brush your teeth twice a day.
  • Drinks like soda and alcohol should be limited as this can damage the veneers.
  • Avoid activities like cracking nuts and breaking ice with your teeth.

Maintain regular check-ups with your dentist. They can spot other issues like teeth-grinding or chips.

“Your dentist can give you the care you need during regular checkups, and ensure that your veneers are doing fine.”
