If you properly maintain your veneers, they can last for a lifetime. However, if you don’t take care of your veneers, they can become damaged and need to be replaced sooner. Veneers are quite durable, but they aren’t indestructible.
You will need to take proper care of your veneers if you want to keep them in good shape. Here are a few tips you should follow:
- Practice good oral hygiene. Brush your teeth twice a day and floss at least once. This will help protect your teeth from decay.
- Don’t chew on hard objects. The porcelain on your veneers is stronger than your teeth, but it’s still possible to chip them or crack them. Avoid chewing on things like ice, pens, pencils, or hard candies.
- Be careful with your teeth grinding habits. Grinding your teeth can chip or crack your veneers. Make sure you wear a mouth guard at night if you grind your teeth.
- See your dentist for regular dental checkups. Regular dental checkups are the best way to ensure your veneers stay in good shape. Your dentist will be able to spot any potential problems during the exam.
