Are veneers permanent?
Because veneers require some enamel to be removed, they are considered a permanent treatment. Enamel is the hard outer layer of the tooth that protects it from tooth decay and damage, so when the enamel is removed, a dental restoration of some kind must be placed over the tooth to protect it, whether it be a crown or veneer. Our team will work with you to ensure that you are completely satisfied with the look and feel of your veneers so that you won’t want them removed!
Are veneers cosmetic or restorative?
Veneers can be used for both restorative and cosmetic purposes. If one or more of your front teeth are damaged, veneers can be used to protect and restore them while simultaneously correcting the color, size, and shape of the teeth. Some patients use veneers for purely cosmetic reasons, as they want to customize how their teeth look to achieve a whiter, more symmetrical smile.
Are veneers durable?
Traditional veneers are made of porcelain, which is a very strong material. This allows most traditional veneers to last an average of 10-20 years. Veneers do not come with any food restrictions, and they can be cared for just like natural teeth. We still recommend that patients with veneers avoid chewing on things they should not chew with natural teeth, like ice and hard candy, visit our office regularly, and practice good oral hygiene at home to help their veneers last for as long as possible.
