Each person’s case is different, but with proper care, porcelain veneers can last up to 10 years — sometimes even longer! Keep reading to learn if porcelain dental veneers might be the key to your smile makeover.

What Are Porcelain Veneers? How Can They Improve My Smile? 

Dental veneers are thin shells made of specialized porcelain that are custom-designed to match your natural teeth. They are permanently applied to the front of the tooth — you can think of them like a contact lens or an acrylic fingernail — to alter the look of your smile.

Veneers can correct or improve many common signs of wear or damage — especially to the front teeth that are on display when you smile. Porcelain veneers are an excellent solution for:

  • Chipped teeth
  • Cracked teeth
  • Broken teeth
  • Teeth that have been worn down over time
  • Stained or discolored teeth

Veneers can also change the shape and size of teeth. If you have a few teeth that are smaller than the rest, have small gaps between teeth or have a smile with uneven edges, your dentist can apply porcelain veneers that create a beautiful sense of symmetry and alignment.

More Brilliant Benefits of Porcelain Veneers 

In addition to creating a smile that you love — and unlocking the confidence that accompanies it! — porcelain veneers come with a few additional perks:

  • You can brush and floss your porcelain veneers just like your natural teeth. Veneers are easy to care for as part of your regular dental hygiene routine. If you want to go the extra mile to protect your new smile, consider wearing a mouthguard at night and when playing sports. And avoid risky activities such as chewing ice or using your teeth to open stubborn packaging.
  • Porcelain veneers protect your natural teeth. Especially in cases of cracked or damaged teeth, veneers create a protective covering that prevents further damage.
  • Your veneers may resist stains. Unlike your natural teeth, porcelain veneers are non-porous. This means they may be better at resisting stains from wine, coffee and other foods and beverages. Just another reason your beautiful new smile will stay beautiful for many years to come!
