Commonly Asked Questions About Porcelain Veneers
- How long will porcelain veneers last?
On average, porcelain veneers last about 10-15 years. However, the overall lifespan depends on one’s home care (oral hygiene), dietary habits, and regular visits to the dentist. Routine brushing and flossing are the most important things patients can do to protect the longevity of their new investment.
- Will getting veneers increase my chances for cavities and tooth decay?
Although the porcelain itself is resistant to tooth decay, the underlying tooth structure could still develop a cavity. To minimize this chance, it is imperative to practice good dental hygiene. Be sure to floss, brush, and visit Dr. Taylor for your teeth cleanings and your risk of developing cavities will diminish dramatically.
- Do porcelain veneers stain?
The high quality of porcelain that is used to fabricate veneers is not porous. This makes the veneers highly resistant to stain. If a small amount of stain develops with time, it can easily be removed with a professional cleaning.
- Do porcelain veneers look natural?
Veneers are one of the most realistic dental enhancements available today. They are custom made to match the shape and color of one’s surrounding teeth. Also, due to the high quality of materials available today, the porcelain reflects light very much like the enamel of natural tooth structure.
- Will my insurance cover the placement of veneers?
Because veneers are considered a cosmetic procedure, insurance typically does not cover this treatment. However, there have been some occasions when a plan has covered a portion of the cost. Schedule an appointment with Dr. Taylor to see if this may be the case for you.
