Porcelain veneers in Garland have the potential to last for around seven to fifteen years, depending on how you care for them.
Committing to a consistent home care routine with daily brushing and flossing will keep your teeth clean and bacteria-free and promote the health and longevity of your dental veneers. Visiting Garland Grove Dentistry every six months for dental checkups with Dr. Jung will also protect your smile investment in veneers. Dr. Jung will examine your teeth and ensure that your veneers are healthy and functioning correctly.
Like your natural teeth, veneers can break or fracture if you bite directly into hard foods like crusty bread, apples, or raw carrots. Cutting hard foods into bite-size pieces protects your veneers and natural teeth from damage.
It's also wise to avoid chewing on ice or using your teeth as tools to open or carry things. These types of actions are damaging to restorations like veneers and could fracture your natural teeth.
You have a lot of control over the longevity of your porcelain veneers by how you take care of them. Contact your Garland dentist at (972) 272-3585 if you have more questions about porcelain veneers or need to schedule your next dental appointment.
