Prolong the Life of Your Veneers

Posted .

Veneers are thin shells made to cover teeth cracks, stains, chips, and discolored teeth. This makes veneers are great option for quickly correcting your smile. However, before you decide that veneers are right for you, there are a few factors that you should consider. Maybe the most important question you should consider is this: will I need to replace my veneers?

Naturally, the answer varies from person to person depending on individual circumstances, but you should expect your veneers to last for at least ten years. However, there is good news. If you care for your veneers properly, they could last for more than twenty years!

Protecting your veneers takes practically no extra effort. In fact, all you have to do is maintain sound oral hygiene. That means brushing, flossing, and visiting your dentist every six months for a routine cleaning. Also, even though veneers are stain-resistant, it may be best to avoid hard foods like nuts, and staining drinks like coffee and tea. It is also important to avoid chewing on things like pens and pencils. Your veneers will also last longer if you visit your dentist to deal with teeth grinding or clenching.
