Caring for Your Veneers
Caring for your veneers is extremely important. While veneers can last for years, they’re still susceptible to wear and tear—and because chipped porcelain is not fixable, you’ll have to replace a damaged veneer completely. Veneers are also susceptible to staining, just like real teeth. Stains appear on the surface of veneers after regular consumption of drinks like tea, coffee, wine. Also, smokers are likely to develop yellowish to brownish stains on their veneers. Luckily, if you treat your veneers the same way you treat your regular teeth, you’ll be in great shape. Beyond avoiding biting hard objects or ripping open packages with your teeth, be sure to brush twice daily with fluoride toothpaste and clean between your teeth daily with floss, water flossers, or another interdental cleaning device. If stains and discoloration develop, schedule a consultation with your dentist to explore your options.
You deserve a bright, confident smile. And with today’s advancements, you now have plenty of options for how to address your teeth’ imperfections. Whether you choose traditional veneers, prepless veneers, or another type of dental procedure, know that taking a step toward improving your teeth will boost your confidence and help you smile more often.
