Do Porcelain Veneers Extend the Life of Your Teeth?

Cosmetic Dentistry for Beverly Hills & Los Angeles, CA

Porcelain veneers Los Angeles are intended to correct cosmetic flaws with your smile. Although they can protect and potentially strengthen teeth with minor cracks, chips, and superficial damage, veneers are not intended to prolong the physical life of your natural teeth. However, veneers are certainly capable of repairing and visually enhancing your smile for many years to come, and the porcelain is capable of resisting stains better than your natural enamel.

If you have an uneven or crooked smile and want to transform it without the time and energy required by braces, porcelain veneers can be a lifetime solution. Veneers are durably bonded to the front surface of your teeth in a way that ensures they will not shift in placement over time. Their resiliency can rejuvenate imperfect teeth and act as a protective barrier.

Still, the best way to extend the life of both your veneered teeth and your natural teeth is to practice good dental hygiene. By brushing, flossing, and visiting your dentist for regular check-ups, you can keep your smile healthy, strong, and beautiful for a lifetime.
