Dental Guide: Are Veneers Permanent or Removable?

Posted on February 15th, 2022 by

Dental Veneers

One of the most common questions our patients ask us is, are veneers permanent? We’ve put together this guide to explain veneers treatment and how long you can expect them to last.

After you’re done reading, schedule a consultation with our dental professionals in the South Loop of Chicago!

What Are Dental Veneers Made From?

Veneers can be made from porcelain or composite resin. In either case, your dentists will take impressions of your teeth to create veneers that best match the shade, shape, and size of your natural teeth.

Are Porcelain Veneers Permanent?

Yes—veneers are permanent. These thin dental caps are crafted to be durable and long-lasting. While they will need to be replaced at some point in your life, high-quality veneers can last for up to 2 decades.

Are Veneers Removable?

No, all veneers are permanent and should not be removed once they’ve been set in place. While veneers are not removable, they can be replaced if one of your veneers ever breaks or loosens.

Veneers cannot be removed because doing so would leave your teeth unprotected. To adhere veneers to your teeth, your dentist must first file down your enamel. Taking off the veneers at any point afterward would leave your teeth exposed and prone to tooth decay.

If you’re hesitant about choosing a permanent dental treatment, you still have other options. There are tons of other cosmetic dentistry options, like teeth whitening, cosmetic bonding, and Invisalign, that can help you achieve your ideal smile.

I was a little hesitant to come here after reading some reviews on Yelp but decided to give it a try after being reassured by Millie (who is really sweet and pleasant) over the phone, and I'm really happy I did. The office is beautiful, modern, and clean, something that really makes a difference for me going to the dentist. They were very prompt, I didn't have
to wait long to see the dentist.

I've been a Art of Modern Dentistry patient for almost a decade at both the South Loop and Lincoln Park locations. Currently I go to the LP office and have to say these are the bets dental pros in Chicago. From the hygienists, to the doctors, to the office staff everyone is professional, nice, and wonderful at their job.

I was blown away by the warm energy that radiated from the staff. They made sure that I understood everything and knew what the cost would be before we moved forward. Each person took the time to sit with me and explain the process. These people clearly love their job, their co-workers, and have a passion for assisting their clients with their dental health.
