What are veneers and how long do they last?

Porcelain veneers in Oakbrook Terrace can correct several aesthetic dental concerns, and they can last for over a decade. You can learn if veneers are right for you by scheduling a consultation with your cosmetic dentist in Oakbrook Terrace, IL. 

How Long Do Porcelain Veneers Last?

Porcelain veneers typically last 10–12 years, but they can last longer if you practice excellent oral hygiene. This means brushing twice daily, flossing once daily, and seeing your dentist for routine exams and cleanings. We also recommend avoiding chewing on ice, pens, hard candies, and anything that can crack or chip your veneers. 

What Are Porcelain Veneers?

Porcelain veneers are thin, stain-resistant shells that adhere to the front surfaces of teeth. With veneers, you can correct the following:

  • Small chips, breaks, and cracks
  • Stains or discoloration that won’t go away with professional teeth whitening 
  • Mild misalignments or crooked teeth 
  • Gaps or uneven spacing between teeth 
  • Misshapen teeth 
  • Teeth with size discrepancies 

Veneers are why so many celebrities have picture-perfect smiles, but you don’t have to be a millionaire to have a stunning smile.
