Dental veneers are essentially thin shellsmade of composite, porcelain or zirconium that are fittedover your natural teeth. In our dental offer, the patient may also chose the e-max veneers, which are the thinnest on the dental market. E-max veneers are the best dental option for patients who do not want have their teeth ground downprior to applying the veneers. Unlike standard veneers,which requires 3 mm of the tooth surface to be ground down, E-max veneers do not require any grinding.

Veneers are chosen by patients with chipped, discolored, broken teeth. Patients with diastema, or with gaps, or other flaws in their teeth, use veneers as well to improve the smile. With veneers patient may have the natural bright smile or may have extra white Hollywood smile, the same as celebrities have. With veneers, patients can attain the samenatural, bright Hollywood smile that celebrities have.

How Long Do Dental Veneers Last?

According to almost 2000 dentists, dental veneers last up to 15 years. The durability of dental veneers depends on the veneers material. For example, the composite veneer will last only 5 years. But, the full porcelain veneer and the zircon veneer will last much longer, up to 15 years. Of course, dental veneers should be treated with proper care, like natural teeth. Each dental veneer user should remember: veneers are very thin, like 0.5 – 0.1 mm, and easy to crush, or break.

What kinds of habits can shorten the life of your veneers?

Any hard, tough meals like nuts, ice, raw veggies, raw fruits should be chewed with back teeth. Generally speaking, back teeth should be used while chewing following treatment with dental veneers. In particular, teeth covered with cheap dental veneers should not be used to chew hard or sticky foods.

How to Maintain Dental Veneers?

We get many questions from our patients like: How to Take Care of Dental Veneers? How to make veneers last longer? What to do to maintain the longest use of dental veneers abroad? How long do dental veneers last? The most important thing you can do is to select a high quality veneer material. In our opinion, the bestoption is zirconium veneers, which are made from the same zirconium material often used in jewelry. Zirconium veneers are completely natural and metal free, which also makes them a great choice forindividuals who are allergic to metals. Zirconium veneers are the most durable, the longest lasting, and themost natural option. Well performed veneers cannot be distinguished from natural teeth.

Take Care Of A Proper Hygiene

Patients with dental veneers should brush and floss their teeth just as they normally would with natural teeth. Daily hygiene protects your teeth and veneers from dental problems. In addition, cavities,bacterial diseases, and inflammation may reduce the duration of your dental veneers usage. Any non-abrasive fluoride dental toothpaste is acceptable, although your best option is antibacterialmouthwash. Good home care, like daily teeth brushing, can help veneers last longer.

Dental veneer might get discolored because of drinking coffee, tea or red wine. It is essential to brush teeth,use mouthwash, or chewing gum after drinking dark liquids. Patients who clench their jaw at night shoulduse a mouth guard to protect their teeth and the lower surface of their veneers from night grinding. What ismore, a night guard will minimize stress and tension located in the facial muscles, neck and shouldersmuscles. Night guards should be worn all night. For beginners, the mouth guard should be used during thedaytime while conducting home activities, as well.

Do not Chew Hard Objects

Even though porcelain or zirconium veneers are durable they are not quite as strong as regular teeth. Patients should not be extra careful not to chew on hard objects, such as pens, ice, fingernails, or any plasticobjects. What is more, raw food should be bitten and chewed with the back teeth.

Chewing and biting hard items may damage your veneers. In case of minor damage, veneers can often berepaired. However, more serious damage may require new veneer preparation. Dental veneers do not haveany warranty if they are damaged or destroyed.

Beware of Substances that May Cause Stains

Porcelain veneers are designed to be stain resistant, but the frequent use of coffee, wine, black tea may result in stains on the front surface of your veneers. In order to keep your smile bright and white, you should refrain from cigarettes, tea, coffee, wine, or any stain-causing meals. Teeth brushing and washing is recommended after each drink, or meal mentioned above.

Quit Smoking

Everyone already knows that smoking leaves hard, permanent and resistant stains. Usually smoking stains are hard to remove by teeth brushing, whitening or any other dental procedure. Quitting smoking is beneficial not only for your teeth but for your overall health. Smoking stains and discolorations on veneers cannot be removed, and veneers can not be whitened. After years of smoking, dentists always suggest installing new veneers and to stop smoking.

Consider Permanent Alternatives to Veneers

The biggest downside to veneers is that, no matter how well you take care of them, sooner or later they will need to be replaced. In addition, while veneers can often improve the quality of a smile, they cannot alwaysgive you perfectly straight looking teeth if you have moderate crowding or certain bite related issues.

If you’re looking for the best possible results and don’t want to deal with the hassle of replacing veneers downthe road, then you might wish to consider clear aligner treatment. This procedure has a reputation for beingvery expensive, but there are now much more affordable aligner treatment options that don’t even require anin-person visit to the dental office. For example, Straight Teeth Direct is a highly reviewed online aligner company that offers custom aligners delivered directly to your door, starting at 1,350 GBP – about a third thecost of braces/Invisalign.
