Veneers Need to Be Replaced After A While

Posted on 10/19/2020 by Dr. Todd Rogers
Veneers can dramatically improve your smile. They are used to whiten smiles and improve front teeth with gaps or chips. The thin porcelain shells are placed on the front teeth, and replicate the look of natural teeth. However, you still need to replace veneers after a while. Signs You Need to Replace Your Veneers Now Usually, veneers last, on average, about 10 years. However, you can lengthen their useful life by twice as long if you take the proper care of them. You should replace your veneers early if you notice that your restorations show any signs of wear. If some areas display chips or cracks, replace your teeth immediately. In addition, we may find, on close examination, that the tooth beneath the veneer has decayed. This can cause the thin delicate shell to separate from the natural tooth. In some cases, veneers do not fit properly. When this happens, we will need to take impressions of your mouth to ensure the fit of your new veneers. Why You Need to Take Extra Good Care of Your Veneers You have to care for your veneers just as well, if not better, than natural teeth. That way, you will greatly increase their duration. By following a regular course of oral hygiene, and brushing and flossing daily, you will not need to replace your veneers as frequently. It also helps to eliminate certain bad habits. These habits may include biting your nails or chewing on ice. In addition, avoid foods and drinks that stain the teeth, and stop using tobacco if you now smoke. Both these practices can lead to an early replacement of your veneers. Save on oral health costs and ensure the usability of your veneers by practicing good dental hygiene and following healthier practices. If you have not had an oral health exam in the last six months, now is the time to do so. Give us a call or contact us online to arrange an appointment for a consultation....
