We’d love for veneers to last forever! However, according to the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, the life expectancy of a veneer is between 7 and 20 years. Our Beautiful Smile Guarantee ensures you’ll know exactly how your new veneers will look before you even leave the chair. We stand behind the quality of our work, and not only should you feel confident and happy with your new smile, we want you to absolutely love it!
“Because of your smile, you make life more beautiful.”
They’ve come a long way.
Dr. Charles Pincus, a dentist from California, developed the first veneers in the late 1920’s. They were placed as a quick fix for movie stars, but didn’t last long. Made from porous acrylic, and temporarily bonded by denture adhesive, they would’ve popped off long before they had a chance to stain! Today, they are made of stain resistant porcelain. They’re thin as a fingernail, but extremely durable and natural looking. However, as with any material, daily wear and tear is a reality.
Tips for keeping your veneers in top shape:
1.) See your dentist & dental hygienist for routine, preventative check-ups —We can catch small problems before they become big ones!
2.) Use a non-abrasive, fluoride toothpaste & soft toothbrush —Helps prevent microscopic scratches to the porcelain.
3.) Brush & Floss 2x daily —A gentle reminder that cavities can form around all dental work!
4.) Don’t bite into hard food/candy —Almonds, hard candy, ice, etc.
5.) Treat them like your natural teeth —And smile more often!
