How Long Do Veneers Last?

Veneers last for 10 to 15 years in most cases. Some of our patients got 15 to 20 years out of theirs. While veneers won't last forever, they have some great benefits like letting you choose the right type for your dental problems. Dental veneers come in different types such as porcelain veneers that the dentist applies to your teeth after removing some of the natural enamel. There are also no-prep veneers that require less work on your part.
