You may have a lot of ideas about porcelain veneers, which can be a good thing (or a not so great thing). You see, when you make assumptions, you may guess incorrectly! As a result, your beliefs may lead you away from this chance to makeover your smile instead of closer to the grin you’ve been imagining for so long. Give yourself the gift of knowledge by learning a few surprising details about veneers and what to expect from them.
Surprise #1: They Last A Long Time!
Your porcelain veneers are not some temporary option for covering up the problems you see with your smile. They’re not something that requires consistent replacement either. What you can expect from them is years and years of wear (Surprise: They can last up to 20 years if not longer). Care for your smile and they’ll keep on looking lovely.
Surprise #2: They’re Super Durable
Nope, your porcelain veneers aren’t about to break at any second. Instead, they are tough little shells that we bond to your teeth. This means that you don’t have to constantly worry about cracks, chips, or staining. Take care of them and they’ll remain in good shape.
Surprise #3: Care Is No Big Deal
You might remember hearing us tell you that caring for your porcelain veneers is no biggie. This is the absolute truth! You’re not going to have to purchase anything special or even change your habits. Well, that is, as long as you have been following our advice for brushing twice a day, flossing your smile one time every day, and keeping up with your dental visits.
