How long do Porcelain Veneers Last?
Traditional porcelain veneers typically last between 10 and 15 years. Taking certain precautions can help make sure that you get the longest lifespan out of them possible.
Our patients' mouths love veneers because the process does not require extensive tooth shaping, and gum tissue tolerates the material well. Veneers don't last forever though and because your teeth will have to be slightly shaved down for fitting, the procedure is irreversible.

How often do Porcelain Veneers have to be replaced?
Porcelain veneers are generally sturdy and should last between 10 and 15 years with proper care. Depending on the type of wear or damage they incur, veneers may need cosmetic repair or full replacement. It's up to the wearer to protect them in order to increase their lifespan.
Do Porcelain Veneers come off easily?
No! Porcelain veneers should not come off every few months. If they are done correctly, porcelain veneers should last for over 10 years or more. ... Even though cosmetic dentistry is different because it is more aesthetically driven, having porcelain veneers that fall off after a short time does not meet this standard.
Can you bite down with Veneers?
Veneers are extremely durable. Despite that, they are not as strong as your natural teeth. … If you have to eat hard food, we recommend chewing with your back teeth. You can also break up candy bars or cut apples into pieces before you eat them, to ensure that your veneers do not chip.
Do Veneers protect teeth from cavities?
