Dentures Vs. Veneers FAQ

What Are Dentures?

Dentures are essentially removable false teeth. You can get dentures to replace all the teeth in your mouth without having to undergo the invasive procedure needed to insert permanent dental implants. Your dentist will design the dentures to fit your mouth perfectly and match the shape of your jaw. Since they are removable, dentures are also incredibly convenient and fairly easy to maintain.

How Long Do Dentures Last?

denturesIf you take proper care of your dentures, a set can last for 10 years or longer. Some wear and tear may be apparent after a few years, and your dentist will likely evaluate their fit annually and make any adjustments as needed. 

What Are Veneers?

Veneers are a more permanent solution for repairing dental imperfections. To insert veneers, your dentist will file your teeth down before adhering a veneer to each individual tooth. Veneers cannot be removed, and you essentially care for them the same way that you would care for your natural teeth.

How Long Do Veneers Last?

With proper care, veneers can last for 10 to 15 years; however, you may not necessarily ever need a full replacement. As they wear down, your dentist can make minor repairs as needed.
