Because they are made from strong, durable porcelain, your porcelain veneers can last you for more than a decade. And we know durability is an important consideration for our Ardmore-area patients. However, at the end of the day, the durability of your veneers comes down to one person: you.
You should see this as great news. You're not at the mercy of someone else's work – you control your own destiny. You simply have to care for your porcelain veneers, and if you do, they will provide you with years of excellent service.
And here's the better news: caring for your veneers isn't difficult. It doesn't require fancy equipment or new techniques. Basically, it comes down to good dental hygiene. Treat your veneers like you do your natural tooth enamel.
Brush your teeth at least twice a day. Floss on a daily basis. Visit Dr. Bellisario's office at least twice a year for regularly scheduled cleanings and examinations. And take the necessary steps to quit grinding or clenching your teeth if you do.
And that's it. These few simple steps will protect your veneers and keep them sound and beautiful for years to come. You'll be able to flash your lovely, photogenic smile with confidence, knowing you have veneers you can trust.
