This is a big purchase for many people, and they want confidence that their veneers will be attractive and useful for many years. Your dentist will likely present you with two options for getting dental veneers: composite or porcelain.
A porcelain veneer is a long-lasting, durable, gorgeous, and lifelike restoration. A very tight seal is used to apply the veneer’s edge to the enamel. It is unusual to detect degeneration at these locations in the front of the mouth in a mouth that has been well-cared for.
Porcelain (ceramic) is particularly tough, smooth, and long-lasting. It is more durable than a composite resin veneer and does not discolor or lose color. A veneer may require replacement for the reasons mentioned below:
Yes, most patients eventually replace their veneers over their lifetimes because they last up to 12 years. Your dentist will polish and redo your veneers at this time. A crown also might be an appropriate replacement if the enamel on your natural teeth is no longer sufficient to support a new veneer.
One of the greatest methods to ensure your dental veneers endure as long as possible is to rely on a knowledgeable, experienced dentist that you can trust. Every patient receives individual attention at Northwoods Dentistry.
