Durability of Porcelain Veneers

General & Cosmetic Dentist serving Hoboken, Jersey City & Hudson County areas of New Jersey


Porcelain veneers can give you a straighter, whiter smile in just a couple of visits to our Hoboken office. They are a durable and long-lasting solution to correct the minor imperfections in your smile.

Veneers can last 10 years or longer and correct many of the common cosmetic dental problems that keep our patients from being fully satisfied with their smile. The strength of porcelain veneers is due in part to the way they are permanently bonded to your teeth. Once you have veneers placed, your teeth will function fully and you will be able to bite and chew normally.

Porcelain veneers, like your natural teeth, are not indestructible. You should take care, just as you would for your natural teeth to keep them looking and functioning their best. You can extend the life of your veneers by:

  • Maintaining a good oral hygiene routine – brush and floss regularly like you would for your natural teeth
  • Avoiding chewing on hard objects like ice and pen tips
  • Not using your teeth as a tool – don’t bite that tape or string
