Can Porcelain Veneers Last a Lifetime?

Porcelain veneers are not permanent, but with proper care, they can last for decades. Our team at KFA Dental Excellence has discovered that some of our patients who have a diligent oral hygiene routine at home never have to replace them. The lifespan of dental veneers depends on the type of veneer and how well you care for them. Laminated porcelain veneers can last up to 12 years, while composite resin veneers should be replaced after 4 to 8 years.

Several studies have concluded that it is reasonable to assume that your veneers will last up to a decade. The useful life of porcelain veneers is affected by several factors, such as the type of veneer chosen and lifestyle habits. Porcelain veneers are among the strongest and most reliable dental restorations, and when properly cared for, they can last for several years. Composite resin is less durable than porcelain, which causes veneers to chip and break more easily than porcelain veneers.

Tooth decay or partial detachment of the veneer may only be detected during a dental exam by your dentist. When considering dental veneers, you'll need to weigh several factors, including the short- and long-term cost, the expected lifespan of the veneers, and the appearance you hope to achieve. It is important to note that once a conventional porcelain veneer is placed, from that point on, it will always require some type of dental restoration (veneer or crown) to have a satisfactory appearance. At KFA Dental Excellence, we believe that porcelain veneers in northwest Calgary are an effective and simple solution to several cosmetic dental problems.
