However, veneers can be scratched and, once damaged, will need to be replaced to ensure continued aesthetic perfection. During your initial consultation with Fresno cosmetic dentist Dr. Gregory Miyake, how long you can expect your porcelain veneers to last will be discussed in greater detail.

To schedule your cosmetic dentistry consultation at our Fresno office, please call 559-224-0103 today. Dr. Miyake welcomes patients from Clovis, Tulare, and all surrounding California communities.

You can help prevent scratching your porcelain veneers by following some very basic care instructions:

  • Use a soft bristled toothbrush
  • Do not use an abrasive toothpaste
  • Refrain from chewing on hard candy or ice

These steps can help prevent damage to your porcelain veneers, but cannot guarantee a lifetime of perfection. During your routine visits to our office for cleanings and examinations Dr. Miyake will assess the state of your veneers to help you determine when it would be best to have them replaced.
