How Long Do Dental Veneers Last?

Dental veneers are thin porcelain shells that bond to the front of your teeth. They’re used to fix a variety of cosmetic issues, like deep discoloration, small chips, gaps, and more! How long should you expect veneers to last?

How Long Do Veneers Last?

Porcelain is a very strong, stain-resistant material. It’s one of the best imitations of tooth enamel, so veneers look very natural. When properly cared for, veneers can last 15 years or longer! What should you do to ensure their longevity? Good oral hygiene is very important. That includes twice-daily brushing, once-daily flossing, and regular visits to the dentist. You should also avoid using your teeth as tools. While porcelain is strong, it can still break on bottle caps, packages, and fingernails.

What Happens When Veneers Wear Down or Break?

When we first bond your veneers, we remove a thin layer of tooth enamel so the shells sit flush against your teeth. This means veneers are a permanent treatment. When your veneers wear down or break, we’ll need to replace them. The replacement process is very similar to the initial bonding.

How Much Do Veneers Cost?

Because they’re permanent, veneers are more expensive than other cosmetic treatments. They’re also priced per tooth, so the more veneers you get, the more expensive the treatment will be. If you’re interested in veneers, we’ll always provide an accurate cost estimate before beginning any work. Most insurance providers don’t cover cosmetic dentistry, but we offer an in-house dental savers plan that includes a 15% discount on all services. We also accept third-party financing.

Great overall experience getting a dental cleaning. Very friendly staff, beautifully designed office, and a comfortable experience watching calming Netflix nature programming while in the chair. Complimentary beverages are in the waiting room and so is a little play area for kids.It felt to me that this was a patient-focused family practice as opposed to a cold, corporate dental mill trying to churn through as many patients as possible.I’ll definitely be coming back here for all my dental needs and I highly recommend.

Dr. Nguyen and his staff are very welcoming and they provide an excellent experience every time I visit. I’ve only been here twice for annual checkups but would definitely consider and recommend this place to anyone who appreciates good customer experience and a very thoughtful approach to making sure that you feel at home. I have some procedures set up for later in the month and I must actually be the only person in the world actually looking forward to a dentist appointment.
