The Lifespan of Your Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain Veneers Roswell GA

Porcelain veneers are one of the most sought-after solutions in cosmetic dentistry. In fact, many of the beautiful celebrity smiles that you see on television are a product of cosmetic veneers. In two easy appointments, veneers can address teeth that are stained, crooked, chipped or gapped.

What are Porcelain Veneers?

Veneers are wafer-thin shells of porcelain that are strictly used on the front teeth, or those visible when you smile. Once your dentist shaves off a tiny portion of your tooth surface, the veneers can strongly bond to the front of your teeth. In doing so, they are meant to cover up your dental imperfections and give you a beautifully balanced smile in return.

Factors the Impact How Long Your Veneers Will Last

When properly cared for, porcelain veneers can last decades. Keep in mind that this cosmetic dental procedure is irreversible due to the necessary shaving of the underneath teeth. Porcelain, however, is one of the highest quality and most durable materials in modern dentistry. Still, there are certain factors that can influence the specific lifespan of your veneers, including the following:

  • Type of veneer
  • Quality of the laboratory in which the veneer is made
  • Skill of the ceramist
  • Bonding method
  • Skill and experience of your cosmetic dentist

Other driving factors that will determine how many years you get from your cosmetic veneers include how well you take care of them. The following habits can shorten the lifespan of your veneers and cause you to need a replacement set:

  • Teeth grinding
  • Opening bottles with your veneers
  • Nail biting
  • Not brushing and flossing regularly
  • Skipping routine professional cleanings

Veneers should be cared for with the same attention and diligence that you give your natural teeth. However, if you do experience damage to a single dental veneer, it can often be easily replaced without having to replace any others that remain in good shape.

At the office of Dr. Mitzi Morris, we bring elite skill and knowledge in custom-designing and placing porcelain veneers. Our goal is to transform smiles in a way that helps patients achieve the most natural-looking, long-lasting results.

  • Dr. Morris is an excellent dentist. Her ability to relate to her patients makes her a stand-out amongst those in her profession. She practices dentistry with superior technique and care. Her staff is friendly, helpful, and accommodating. I feel she hires only the best! One special mention: I suffer from panic attacks at times- along with claustrophobia. Dr. Morris is the first dentist I have ever had who helped calm my fears. Thus, my experience exceeded expectations! Great service!

  • Definitely would recommend Dr. Morris to anyone. She has been my dentist for over 8 years! Dr. Morris is extremely personable and is serious about the completing the best care possible. Great established dental team! Very accommodating to your schedule.

  • Great and very educational experience. Compared to my last two dentists this experience blows them both out of the water. The staff is very friendly, and very helpful. I had to go in for a total of four visits a few weeks apart from each other. They made me feel very comfortable the entire time and kept making sure I was pleased. Getting a deep cleaning went very smoothly. It was also brought to my attention that the way I was flossing was incorrect. And have since changed methods. I worked specifically with Dr. Morris. She was very nice, and took the time to explain things. Which is a huge plus for me. Dr. Morris and the staff members worked effortlessly together. I was comfortable enough to sit back and relax, strangely enough, while having cavities drilled and fillings put in. Billing and scheduling appointments, as well as follow up for confirmation of upcoming appointments was very easy. I will say my favorite part of the experience was how friendly of an environment the staff has created. That alone is deserving of a 5 star review, and the rest is honestly icing on the cake. I highly recommend this practice on all fronts and will continue using them!

  • I transferred from a long-term and very good relationship with my former dentist because of a move, and I was a little apprehensive about a new dentist. Dr. Morris has been great. She is friendly, patient-concerned and the office is new, comfortable and clean. Everyone seems to enjoy working there. I feel like I'm in good hands!

  • Dr. Morris and her staff are very professional. Additionally, she as well as her staff have an excellent "bedside manner." The office is new and well equipped. If one has an appointment and an earlier one opens up, Dr. Morris offers it to her patients as she did with my last appointment.

  • I have never met a staff so nice and charming. This staff will make you feel comfortable and relaxed in Dr. Morris's Spa like office and everyone is professional and approachable too. Andrea R. explained the process of my appointment and procedures and is definitely a highly-educated and thorough dental hygenist -- SHE IS A ROCKSTAR. I'm so glad that Dr. Morris and her dental team have been my "go-to" for the last 5 years, and I wont be going anywhere else! Overall - A++ Dr. Morris...highly recommended to my family and friends!!!

  • I've been a patient of Dr. Mitzi Morris for many years, and recommend her without reservation. The office is modern. clean and spacious. The staff has always been welcoming and very helpful. And the women who work for her as dental technicians are fantastic; they do a professional and effective deep cleaning, but with a careful, gentle touch. It is clear to me that Dr. Morris reads her professional journals and upgrades her practice to stay very current with the latest best practices in dentistry. (I have had some dentists who stopped updating their practices after leaving dental school!) With Dr. Morris you can count on receiving the very latest dental technology. Her prices are very fair, and I have never been surprised by an unexpected cost or had problems with insurance not covering services rendered.

    Bruce C
  • I have never experienced an office so down to earth, so outgoing and so willing to satisfy. If you've grown to dread the dentist then lay down your sword and give this office a shot.
