How Long Do Ceramic Veneers Last?

On average veneers can last about 10-25 years with proper care. Newer porcelains are virtually indestructible and hardly ever chip. Veneers can de-bond, but usually, they need to be replaced when they are no longer esthetic.

How to Maintain Ceramic Veneers

After veneers are placed, it’s up to the wearer to protect them to increase their lifespan. Here are some ways to properly care for your veneers:

  • Follow good oral hygiene practices, the same ones that you follow for your natural teeth.
  • Brush at least twice a day, floss and see your dentist regularly.

  • Wear a mouth guard if you are involved in any sports to avoid accidents that could crack or chip veneers.
  • Don’t use your teeth as tools. Using your teeth as scissors to open a stubborn knot or closed container is a no-no and will lead to cracking or breaking your porcelain veneer.
  • Protect your veneers from certain habits like clenching, grinding or putting excessive pressure on your teeth.
  • Maintaining the color of your veneers is easy since they are highly stain resistant, but the dental cement that keeps them in place can become discolored. This can make the edge of the veneer appear yellowed and unnatural. To protect the color, patients should avoid stain producing foods and drinks such as coffee, tea, wine, berries, and tomato sauce.

What Do I Do If A Veneer Breaks Or Comes Off?

Get to your dentist ASAP if your veneer breaks or comes off. Often the veneer can be reattached. Carefully store the pieces and bring them with you.
