Are veneers permanent?

Have you noticed stains, discolouration or teeth that seem a bit misshapen? Our teeth show the effects of what we consume over time and potentially take on damage due to trauma or chewing on hard foods. Whatever the reason, many seek dental veneers to improve their oral cosmetic appearance.

How Long Do Veneers Last?

Like your existing teeth, veneers need diligent care and upkeep. Whilst veneers are a temporary treatment, patients who take care of their veneers can potentially expect them to last a decade or more! Some factors that can affect the longevity of dental veneers include:

  • The condition of teeth and gums before veneer placement- having a healthy mouth can help veneers last longer!
  • Consistent brushing, flossing and use of mouthwash can help your veneers last longer and also improve your overall oral health.
  • The variety of dental veneers (generally porcelain or composite resin) also affects longevity.
  • A patient’s diet may also influence the longevity of dental veneers. The consumption of red wines, coffee or acidic foods may leave stains on veneers just like regular teeth.
