Dental veneers can benefit your smile by covering crooked or chipped teeth, while retaining a natural look. Made from porcelain, your dentist can advise on whether this treatment is right for you.

Key takeaways:

  • If veneers are cared for properly, they can last over 10 years before they need replacing.
  • Although thin layers of porcelain, dental veneers are durable and can resist everyday wear and tear.
  • Professional teeth cleaning and checkups with your dentist will help your veneers last longer.

“Just because dental veneers are durable and can last for years and years doesn’t mean you can abuse or neglect your teeth. You’ll still need to brush and floss your teeth just like normal. If you play sports, you should still invest in a custom mouthguard to protect your smile.”
