How many veneers do I need?
A consultation is needed to determine how many veneers are needed or if veneers are the best option to achieve the smile aesthetic you'd like. In most cases, however, an even number of veneers (either 2, 4, 6 or 8) is the best option for the optimal smile.
How long do veneers last?
For patients who have regular professional cleanings and optimal oral hygiene, veneers will typically last 10 or more years without chipping or breaking.
How do I care for my veneers?
Brushing two times a day for 2 minutes, flossing daily, and wearing a bite guard at night is the best way to care for your veneers. We also advise against biting into hard foods, like almonds or shells, using your front veneers.
What is the most common reason to have veneers replaced?
The material we use to construct veneers is very strong and does not normally break. However, sometimes gum recession occurs around the veneer and the root of the tooth may become exposed. Gum recession for most people is a slow process and can be identified during your regular checkups. The other common cause is to develop a cavity around the edge of the veneer. This is easily avoided with routine brushing and flossing.
