While dental veneers are not a permanent fix to your dental issues, these natural looking implants can give you a new smile for anywhere between seven and fifteen years.
Porcelain veneer does not damage your natural teeth by any means. In fact, it protects your natural teeth from further decaying as well as other damages. Fragile teeth can be dangerous, as they can be broken down anytime. With veneer, porcelain lamination is added around the teeth to give strength.
On average, porcelain veneers tend to last for about 10 years , but they can last for even longer with the right maintenance. Many patients have porcelain veneers that still look great after 20 years . The longevity of porcelain veneers often comes down to how a patient takes care of them after they have been placed.
A veneer is a thin moulding, custom-made from porcelain, which is bonded to the front surface of a tooth. Veneers are a quick and effective solution to stained, chipped, misshapen or crooked teeth. They can also be used to cover gaps in teeth where orthodontic treatment may not be suitable.
