One of the reasons porcelain veneers are so popular with our Edmonton-area patients in need of cosmetic dentistry solutions is their exceptional durability. If properly maintained using basic dental hygiene, porcelain veneers can last for up to a decade.
Porcelain veneers are so durable for two reasons. These are:
- The incredibly strong material. Veneers are, obviously, made from porcelain, which is lightweight and strong. The porcelain material isn’t prone to cracking and won’t stain.
- The bonding process places the thin veneer firmly over your tooth. There’s no “wiggle room,” to use a common phrase; the veneer is strongly bonded to your tooth enamel.
Of course, the right cosmetic dentist is important. When you come to Focus on Smiles, you know that Dr. Christine Fialka-Eshenko has decades of experience with the porcelain veneer bonding procedure. She understands the important details and how to make sure the veneers are applied appropriately.
Now, as noted above, veneers still must be maintained. You have to provide them with the safe attention you provide your natural teeth. If you do this, your veneers will give you years of loyal service.
If you’re a resident of the Edmonton, Alberta area and you’re considering porcelain veneers, please contact Focus on Smiles today for a consultation.
