Dental Veneers' Lifespan and Replacement



Many dentists estimate that dental veneers will last between 10 and 15 years. In truth, this is really just a rough idea of the lifespan of Norfolk dental veneers, because there are many different factors that can cause damage to veneers, and there are many things you can do to keep them looking great for a very long time.

Risk Factors for Dental Veneers

Every individual has their own unique circumstances that can affect the performance and longevity of dental veneers. In general, here a few things that can damage your veneers and lead to premature failure:

  • Poor dental hygiene
  • Tooth grinding
  • Chewing fingernails or other objects
  • Using your teeth to open things
  • Tooth decay
  • Chewing hard foods or things like nut shells

How to Extend the Life of Your Veneers

The very best way to keep your veneers looking their best as long as possible is with excellent oral hygiene habits and regular dental office cleanings. During your cleanings, Dr. Folck can also examine your veneers and catch any problems as they develop.
If your veneers are no longer looking as good as they once did, veneer replacement can make a huge difference. Call Dr. Folckā€™s Norfolk dental office at (877) 206-3444 to schedule an appointment today.
