As you may know, dental veneers are thin shells designed to erase small gaps, brighten teeth, and to enhance the appearance of smiles in general. If you would like to enhance the appearance of your smile, we recommend dental veneers: if you’ve already had veneers, we hope you are enjoying your smile. But, whether you are planning on getting veneers or currently enjoying the appearance of your improved smile, there is a question you should consider: how long will veneers last?

Naturally, the answer varies from person to person depending on individual circumstances, but you should expect your veneers to last for at least ten years. However, there is good news. If you care for your veneers properly, they could last for more than twenty years!

To make matters better, caring for your veneers is relatively simple. All you have to do is care for your teeth. That means taking two minutes twice a day to brush your teeth and flossing every day.  It is also important to avoid chewing on things like pens and pencils. Your veneers will also last longer if you visit your dentist to deal with teeth grinding or clenching. Of course, it is also very important to visit your dentist twice a year for an exam and cleaning. Your dentist will be able to give you specific advice and care for your smile.
