Will My Veneers Last Forever?
Here is a perfect example of what to watch for: At McAdams Dental, we recently encountered a situation where a set of porcelain veneers had outlived their useful life. The patient enjoyed 13 years of showing off her beautiful porcelain smile, but you might notice that over time a few problems have developed. Notice the spacing between the front teeth, fading color, dark stained pitting, and yellowing/darkening along the gums at the edges of the veneers shown in the photo below:
In the end, we achieved successful improvement by placing 8 porcelain veneers on her upper front teeth, compare before and after in the photo below:
