How long do dental veneers last? I guess to answer this question, I’d have to break it down into two parts. One part would be to talk about, the type of material that we would use. So the obvious in regards to this is that ceramic veneers will last longer than composite veneers. It’s a stronger material, it’s more durable. It is more stain resistant. It is also more aesthetic. It is easier to maintain and keep clean. And so porcelain veneers typically last longer than ceramic veneers. So the quality of the material dictates longevity initially.

However, the second part to this question would come back to the patient, and it would be in regards to how well they’re looking after their veneers. So I’ve seen patients that have taken immaculate care of composite veneers, and they’d been there for 10, 15, 20 years. So exceeding the average time we would expect for a composite veneer, but I’ve also seen patients who have had beautiful ceramic veneers placed that haven’t gone as much as we’d expect, which is about 10 years. And that all comes down to whether they’re brushing their teeth thoroughly, whether they’re maintaining a healthy diet, whether they’re flossing their teeth on a regular basis, whether they’re getting their veneers checked every six months during their checkups and cleans.

So maintenance is just as important as, I guess, the quality of the material that we utilise. So we can set the patient up for success by doing a ceramic veneer versus the composite veneer. But I guess to get the most out of those veneers, it really depends on how well they can maintain their dental health.
