Dental Veneer Q and A’s  

What Are Veneers?  

They are thin shells that are placed candidly on your teeth to hide flaws and give you a more attractive smile. Some patients just require one or two veneers, while others choose to have a full set placed on all visible teeth. However, even if you only have a single veneer, it can significantly improve your appearance.  

Are Veneers Permanent?  

Yes, they are permanent. Dental veneers are intended to remain in place and cannot be removed whenever you like. If one breaks, wears out, or loosens, you’ll be advised to have it changed.  

How Long Do Teeth Veneers Last?  

The average lifespan of veneers depends on the material used. For instant veneers, they normally last five to eight years. Composite veneers last for at least three years, while porcelain veneers have an average lifespan of 11 to 15 years. Although they are synthetic teeth and are not susceptible to discoloration, proper care and maintenance are required to prolong their lifespan.
