2. They Won’t Look Good for Long
What do veneers look like after ten years? Many people think that porcelain veneers will get stained and ugly quickly, but that’s not true. Porcelain veneers are actually very stain resistant. They have a glossy coat on them that prevents staining molecules from penetrating the veneer, unlike your teeth, which have pores that allow stains inside.
Veneers today can last anywhere from 15 to 20 years. Once they’re getting towards the end of their lifespan, they still don’t look terrible so you don’t have anything to worry about it. They usually just need to be replaced because they’re cracked, damaged, or loose, or the underlying tooth is cracked, damaged, or stained. Although veneers are stain-resistant, your teeth underneath are not. After a time, some discoloration can occur.
