Porcelain veneers, when placed properly in the mouth and depending on the patient’s habits, can last for a decade or two. If patients are bruxers, that is, if they grind or clench their teeth, they tend to possess oral habits that require the use of their teeth for actions other than eating, such as opening plastic bags or biting into pencils or pens. Bad habits like these can cause the veneer to pop off the tooth. When veneers are placed, it is advisable to wear a night guard to prevent any grinding or clenching of the teeth during sleep. We caution our patients to never use their teeth for anything other than smiling and biting into softer foods.
