Porcelain veneers can last a very long time, especially if you take care of them. The teeth are gently abraded so that a very strong, durable connection is formed between the veneer and the enamel. Maintenance should include brushing, flossing, and visiting the dentist for routine cleanings and exams. Although the veneer itself cannot decay, the junction where the veneer and natural enamel meet can develop cavities. Please watch Dr. Sussman's video to learn more.
