Except for implants, there are virtually no dental restorations that last a lifetime.
Cosmetic dentist Dr. Michael Allen creates beautiful, durable restorations at our Tucson, AZ dental office. But even the highest quality restoration, whether it is a veneer, crown, bridge or denture – or even a filling – will eventually need to be replaced.
How to Care for Dental Veneers
Many things affect the lifespan of a veneer. Your general dental care, the types of foods you eat, and whether or not you are a smoker all impact the way your veneer ages.
Veneers are made of dental porcelain, which is very durable. But you have to remember that a veneer is very thin to sit naturally on your tooth. This makes veneers prone to chipping and breaking if you don’t take care of them properly, so avoid biting down on ice, nuts, and hard candies to prevent chipping.
Good oral hygiene and regular visits help lengthen the lifespan of your dentistry, so your 6-month checkups with Tucson, AZ cosmetic dentist Dr. Michael Allen are essential. Your veneer may look fine, but the tooth underneath it must also be healthy or you may have to have the veneer replaced.

Imperfections That Can Be Covered With Veneers
A veneer is an ultra-thin layer of porcelain that fits over your tooth and covers minor imperfections, such as:
- Gaps or spaces between teeth
- Stained, yellowed, or discolored teeth
- Chipped or broken teeth
- Small misalignment issues
- Tooth size or shape discrepancies
