No prep veneers : Lumineers are a brand name of a minimal to no-prep teeth veneer system that provides a permanent white, straight smile. If teeth are moderately misaligned, clear or traditional braces may be prescribed to better align teeth before lumineers. Careful case selection is imperative for outstanding results.

Porcelain laminates: Can last that long. I have a case that's 29 years and going. Depends on the situation with occlusion, pre-treatment tooth damage, doctor technique, and many other variables.
