How Long Do Veneers Last?

Your teeth should shine, and veneers may provide just that for certain people who have lost their original luster due to damage or wear and tear. Learn about veneers' creation, how long they endure, and how to care for them if you're considering these cosmetic dental treatments as a solution to problems like chipping, gaps, discoloration, or an uneven bite.

What is the definition of a veneer?

A veneer is a very thin layer of porcelain or composite resin that is adhered to the front of a tooth. Veneers may alter the size, color, form, and location of teeth, as well as their smoothness on the surface.

Enamel, the hard outer layer of a tooth, may be microscopically roughened using acid gel. When applied to the roughened surface, special resin glues or bonding agents form a very strong bond. For small adjustments in size, shape, and shade, a dentist may simply bond on a porcelain veneer or tooth-colored filling. When completely bonded to enamel, veneers have a very long lifespan, with some porcelain veneers lasting up to 20 years and composite veneers lasting 7-10 years.

What You Can Anticipate From Veneers?

When it comes to fixing a person's smile, porcelain veneers are often chosen. Dental veneers are mostly used for aesthetic purposes, but they may also make your teeth stronger and healthier. What to anticipate in terms of veneers and tooth function is as follows:

Many of the patients at Normandale Dentistry who have gaps between their teeth do so because they find the appearance to be unappealing. Nevertheless, gaps in teeth may also impair chewing and speech. Gum disease and tooth decay may be caused by the accumulation of plaque and germs along the gum line, which is facilitated by spaces between the teeth. These problems may make eating painful or impossible, and they often result in tooth loss.

Worn teeth may be restored with veneers so that they function normally again. Teeth grinding and dental erosion can shorten the lifespan of front teeth. As teeth are worn down, even eating may be a chore. In addition, major deterioration and structural issues arise when dentin is exposed due to excessive wear on teeth.

What Is The Average Lifespan Of Bonded Teeth?

Bonding, also known as composite veneers or instant veneers, is the technique of adding a thin coating of composite resin to the outer layer of the teeth. the benefit of this sort of veneer is that they are fast to perform, frequently being done in a single session with no injection. They do however have a propensity to take various stains like red wine, coffee, and tea.

The average veneer bonded to a tooth may last between five and seven years before it has to be replaced. This period may be drastically decreased is extremely strong colored meals are consumed and/or the veneers are placed under too much stress and they shatter.

How Long Do Veneers Last?

Depending on the veneer type and with the right amount of care and maintenance:

  • composite bonding veneers generally last 5-7 years

  • Porcelain veneers have a lifespan of around 10 to 15 years.

Your dentist will notice if you grind your teeth before getting veneers, which might reduce their lifespan significantly.


While the veneers themselves are cavity-proof, the underlying tooth is still at risk. That's why it's so important to keep up your regular routine of brushing twice a day and flossing once.

Porcelain Veneer are a long-lasting solution for those who are self-conscious about the look of their teeth yet want to improve their smile. See your dentist at Dental Cosmetic for additional details about veneers if you're interested in learning more about this cosmetic dentistry option.
