Porcelain veneers are one of the most durable dental restorations available. Scratch and stain resistant, veneers are designed to last for years. Forever, though? Most likely not.
The Cherry Creek cosmetic dentists at DeWitt Dental Associates use advanced porcelain veneers that can restore flawless beauty for years. However, even these veneers may not last for a lifetime. During your routine visits to our office we will carefully evaluate the condition of your veneers and suggest individual replacements as needed.
Preventing Damage to Your Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers will not last forever, but caring for them can help ensure they last for ten or more years. You can help prevent damage and extend the lifetime of your veneers by:
- Using a soft bristled toothbrush and nonabrasive toothpaste
- Not using mouthwash with astringent ingredients like alcohol
- Not biting ice or hard candy
- Visiting our office every six months for cleanings and examinations
Biannual visits to our office will not necessarily extend the life of your porcelain veneers, but they will allow us to detect small imperfections and make plans for replacement before issues become more pronounced. During your next visit to our office we would be happy to address any questions you may have about porcelain veneers and to help you better understand how to ensure your restorations last for years to come.
