Dental experts agree that once securely bonded to the teeth, veneers should last a minimum of a decade without replacement. According to how much oral care is taken this gives the wearer a bit of wiggle room to add a few years to their lifespan. With proper care, you might be able to enjoy them for even 15 years or more. Similar to their natural teeth, clients will be instructed on how to take proper care of their teeth after the procedure is complete.

Factors like grinding your teeth and practicing good oral hygiene should also be considered in the lifespan of each placement. Ultimately, the smile and the confidence boost you receive from their placement can feel timeless.

The material that will cover the client’s teeth also determines the longevity of the veneers.

Dental Veneers

Two Options for Veneer Placement

There are two types of bonded veneers: composite and porcelain. Before deciding on which material to use, each client should discuss their dental history and what type of appearance they want.

Should a client want a more natural looking smile in just one appointment, a composite veneer is the best option. Our doctors design each casing to match the color and shape of other teeth in the client’s mouth.

Porcelain veneers slightly differ from composite layers in how and why they are produced. Regardless, both material types are used to help you achieve a radiant smile and boost your confidence. The dentist will take an impression of your teeth to construct and schedule a placement in a follow-up appointment.

According to one study published in the National Institute of Health, porcelain veneers have enhanced durability over the composite material. While both are aesthetically pleasing, the porcelain is naturally stronger over the composite material, and could last longer. Not only is the porcelain option stronger than the composite material, the porcelain shell is also stain resistant.

Composite veneers should still be considered when a client wants them placed within the same appointment.

Seeing Your Cosmetic Dentist for Dental Veneers in Glenview, IL

Prior to scheduling a placement, the dentist will evaluate your oral health and any dental issues you might have. Some factors considered when determining the placement of veneers include but are not limited to the following: tooth enamel health, chips or cracks in the teeth, and a history of gum disease.

With the placement of your veneers, there will be no need to hide your smile from the world anymore.

Real Patient Reviews

I have been going to this practice for several years now. I seemingly never have to wait when I arrive at the office and they are all very professional. Dr. Hartlieb and Dr. Ching have been terrific. In addition to doing great dental work, each has a great rapport with their patients. All of their assistants have been top notch as well.

I recently met with Dr. Ching to have some dental work done, and had an exceptional experience at this office! I usually hate going to the dentist, but this experience was different–this office is hands-down, THE nicest dental facilitiy I have ever seen.

- Shaun F.

This dental office is something I haven’t seen before. I had many past dental experiences at other dental offices (unfortunately not good) and finally I found Chicago Beautiful Smiles. Dr. Hartlieb had helped me restore my teeth to a beautiful smile.

- Natasa R.

I am a loyal patient for over (yikes!) 20 years because I appreciate the time, skill and patience of the entire team. As proof of my gratitude, I live in the city and reverse commute every six months for my appointment.

- Dennis H.

Dr. Hartlieb is by far the best dentist I have ever been to. He has transformed my smile into something of beauty. In fact, many people comment on how beautiful my teeth are who do not even know that I have had major dental work performed. I used to never want to smile that large before, but now I smile as big as possible when photographed.

- Fran L.

I always have a great experience when I go to Chicago Beautiful Smiles. The staff is amazing and Dr. Hartlieb and Dr. Ching are extremely knowledgeable and friendly. The facility is incredible and I feel like I’m being treated with the best technology in the dental industry. Go to Chicago Beautiful Smiles for a consultation and I guarantee you will go back time and time again. It does not get any better in the Chicago area.

- Antonio S.

I had a great experience with Dr. Ching – very professional and thorough in his craft. I had been seeing my previous dentist for the past 15 years; however, I am ready to make the permanent switch to Chicago Beautiful Smiles. Dr. Ching is great at explaining the procedures he was performing and made my visit comfortable.
