When Do Dental Veneers Need Replacing?
Dental veneers provide a long-term solution for people who want to improve the appearance of their teeth such as disguising small gaps or stains, cracked or chipped teeth.
– Veneers are a thin porcelain layer bonded to the front of your teeth.
– If taken care of properly, veneers should last 10-20 years.
– Veneers can be protected if you avoid chewing ice and other hard objects.
“Visiting your dentist for checkups and professional cleanings can also help you extend the life of your veneers by keeping your smile strong and healthy and evaluating your veneers for damage.”
