It is difficult to put a number of years for a lifespan for porcelain veneers. Everyone’s mouth is different.
If you are using veneers you should avoid certain things such as:
- Biting pins or other metal objects, which may chip an edge of veneers
- Power polishing of veneers. By doing this, the surface can become rough and porous and the porcelain veneers will then stain very easily
- Frequent snacking, which can lead to cavities on the edges
- Clenching and grinding your teeth
The chances of longer life span depends on your oral habits, your occlusion and how well you maintain oral hygiene.
