How long do dental veneers last?

Dental veneers are a great option when it comes to cosmetic dentistry. We consider dental veneers an investment in your smile, and our Eagle River dentists strive to give your teeth the shine you’ve always wanted.

Well-maintained veneers have the potential to last decades. Seems worth it, right? The longevity of dental veneers depends on how well they are taken care of. 

Here are some factors that will ensure a longer time span and protect dental veneers:

  • Consistent and quality dental hygiene (brushing, flossing, mouthwash, etc.)
  • Consumption of foods that generally aren’t harmful to regular teeth 
  • The use of a mouthguard while playing sports 
  • Having healthy teeth before veneer application 

Factors that decrease the longevity of dental veneers:

  • Gradual gum recession
  • Grinding or clenching your teeth
  • Junk food unhealthy for regular teeth
  • Potential trauma causing cracks or fractures in teeth or veneers
  • Poor dental hygiene
