How Long Do Veneers Last

Wednesday, December 11, 2013 by Malisano Dental

porcelain veneers
Veneers are thin coverings of tooth coloured material ( Resin or Porcelain) that are bonded to the visible part of the tooth. It is a dental cosmetic option offered to those who wish to improve their smile. It can be used to whiten teeth, lengthen teeth, reshape crooked teeth, close spaces between teeth and fix chipped teeth.

Long term research supports that porcelain veneers (up to 15 years) last longer than resin veneers (up to 7 years) The following can happen to your veneers over the years.

  1. Colour change
  2. Gum Inflammation
  3. Tooth Decay around your veneers
  4. Chipping of veneers
  5. Splitting of Veneers
  6. Dislodging or Veneer falling off
  7. Gum recession

The success of veneers depends on the following

  • The type and product of veneer
  • The design of the veneer
  • The expertise of the ceramist who makes the veneers
  • The expertise of your dentist and her team
  • Your dental and general health
  • Your diet
  • Your compliance with daily oral hygiene care (toothpastes used,flossing and tooth brushing)
  • Your compliance with attending 6 monthly dental assessments.

Tooth Veneers can serve as a beautiful solution for twisted teeth, worn teeth, discolored teeth, spaces and gaps between teeth if done well the first time. Make your decision wisely as a compromise on cost and quality can lead to more dentistry and expense.
