Porcelain veneers are a popular choice for those looking to improve the appearance of their teeth. They can be used to correct a variety of issues, such as discoloration, chips, and gaps. However, they don't last forever and will need to be replaced at some point. Porcelain veneers can start to wear out over time, leading to chipping, cracking, or even falling off.
If a porcelain veneer is damaged, it must be replaced in order to protect the tooth from decay. On average, porcelain veneers last between 10 and 15 years, although some patients have been able to enjoy them for up to 20 years. Composite resin veneers are much more likely to chip and break, resulting in an estimated lifespan of 4 to 8 years.
