How long do porcelain veneers last?

Dr Foncea How long do porcelain veneers last

When an individual is dealing with discolored, chipped, or crooked teeth, one commonly recommended cosmetic dentistry procedure that Dr. Foncea from Sequoyah Dental Arts will consider for his patients are porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers are thin shells that are adhered over your existing, natural teeth in order to change their appearance. You may be wondering how long porcelain veneers last.

With the proper care, porcelain veneers can last upwards of twenty years for most patients, sometimes even longer. While they don’t require any special attention other than regular brushing and flossing, Dr. Foncea of Sequoyah Dental Arts does ask that you refrain from using your teeth for unusual purposes in order to keep them from chipping or cracking. When this happens, your porcelain veneers will need to be replaced with new ones in order to bring your smile back to its original appearance.

In addition to inappropriate use, porcelain veneers and natural teeth are also at risk if you grind your teeth at night. This can cause damage to the veneers, which is why Dr. Foncea will oftentimes require a night guard to be worn when you sleep in order to reduce the risk to your porcelain veneers. This can help increase the lifespan of your veneers, just by protecting them and using them appropriately.

When cared for properly, porcelain veneers can be a long term consideration for many when it comes to improving their smile. Whether you are attempting to address crooked teeth or permanently stained or discolored teeth, Dr. Foncea of Sequoyah Dental Arts in Knoxville can help you rejuvenate your smile with the use of porcelain veneers, as well as other cosmetic procedures. Call today to schedule a consultation appointment and get started on improving the appearance of your teeth!
