With proper care, porcelain veneers can last for years, and may even improve your overall health. You can even extend the lifetime of your veneers by following good oral hygiene practices and regular visits to your dentist. Avoid smoking, coffee and eating foods that are highly pigmented.

Composite resin veneers
Composite resin veneers can be confusing to some people. These veneers are made from tooth-colored filling material, which is custom-made and bonded onto your teeth. The resin will be shaped by your dentist to fit your teeth. After that, a special light will be used to harden it. Your dentist will polish your veneers once they are hardened.

The dentist will prepare your teeth during the procedure so that temporary restorations can fit. The dentist will then bond the composite material to the teeth. The temporary restorations are made of a plastic-like material, and are held in position with interim cement. These temporary restorations are only temporary and may not be available in all colors. After a few weeks you can start eating and chewing normally. A few weeks after the procedure, you can have your permanent teeth restored.
The procedure requires several appointments. To begin the process, you will need a pre-treatment appointment with your dentist. Braces may be necessary for uneven or crooked teeth.

Your dentist will give you post-operative instructions for taking care of your new smile.
Discuss your expectations and concerns with your dentist before you make a decision. It is vital to understand that no single procedure will work for everyone. Choose a team of experienced cosmetic dentists who will tailor your veneers to your particular needs and aesthetic goals. The best dentists will be honest about their realistic expectations and provide realistic outcomes. They will also inform you about the risks of getting veneers. Your dentist will explain the procedure so you can make an informed decision.
If your dentist failed to inform you of possible risks, you may be able to make a compensation claim. If your dentist failed to explain the risks or failed to obtain informed consent, you may be eligible to receive compensation. This type of claim can be extremely complex but can be worth it if you have undergone multiple procedures to improve your smile. To minimize future problems, it is important to take good care after veneers are placed.

The dentist will conduct a thorough exam before veneers can be applied to your teeth. This includes checking for root canals, gum disease, and tooth decay.

You may need to replace them, depending on how well you take care of them.
