Do veneers ruin your teeth?
One of the most asked questions we receive at Burkburnett Family Dental about porcelain veneers is if they ruin your teeth. As one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry treatments, we receive this question quite often. Simply put, the answer is no. Porcelain veneers don't ruin your teeth.
How much do veneers last?
Traditional veneers can last 8 to 10 years on average, with high success rates up to 20 years. They may last longer if well taken care of.
How much tooth do they remove for veneers?
A veneer can as thin as 1/2 mm, or about the thickness of a fingernail. So if we are adding bulk and length to a tooth, very little enamel needs to be removed. But if a dentist is trying to make teeth appear straighter or reshape them, we often need to take away more enamel where the teeth stick out too far.
