Durability of Porcelain Veneers

For Edmonton-area patients considering porcelain veneers, durability is an important consideration. You don’t want dental work that is not built-to-last.
Porcelain veneers are not indestructible, and you have to take care of them like your other teeth. However, they are built from strong, sturdy material, and if you maintain proper dental hygiene your porcelain veneers can last decades.
Porcelain veneers are durable both because they are built from strong material and because they are bonded to your teeth.
You can eat and chew as you normally would. Plus, porcelain veneers are resistant to staining, so you don’t have to worry about losing a white, photogenic smile.
Maintaining your porcelain veneers is as simple as:
- Brushing at least twice a day
- Flossing regularly
- Coming to Dr. Christine Fialka-Eshenko for regularly scheduled dental cleanings.
- Avoiding chewing on hard objects, such as ice.
Provided you follow these tips, avoid trauma to the veneers (such as by falling or running into a solid object) and don’t grind your teeth, your veneers can last 20 or 30 years and you’ll never notice them.
We can answer any porcelain veneers questions you might have.
