Porcelain veneers typically last anywhere from seven to 20 years, but common sense should tell you that - like anything - the better care you take of something, the longer it's likely to last. Porcelain veneers certainly aren't immune to breakage or cracking, and not taking good care of your teeth or failing to be cognoscente about what is and isn't appropriate when it comes to the dental apparatus can potentially be the difference between premature replacement or a long-lasting solution.
How do you ensure that your porcelain veneers last closer to the two decade maximum than they do the seven year minimum? Here's a closer look:
Last but not least, one of the best ways to ensure that your veneers stay in good shape for the long run is to regularly see the dentist. By seeing the dentist at least once every six months, you can ensure that your teeth are professionally cleaned and that any minor issues are resolved before they become major issues.
