Congratulations on your new smile! Veneers are a great option for taking your smile to the next level. Now that you have the smile of your dreams, it’s important to take great care of your veneers so that you can enjoy the benefits for many years to come!
Maintain a Consistent Oral Hygiene Regimen
Even though porcelain veneers aren’t susceptible to decay and cavities, the teeth underneath your veneers still are. Make sure you’re brushing twice a day for two minutes each time and flossing at least once a day. Even with veneers, it’s also important to continue visiting the dentist at least twice a year for an annual checkup, cleaning, and exam.
Avoid Cigarettes & Tobacco
Cigarettes and other tobacco products can wreak havoc on your new smile. Nicotine can quickly tarnish your veneers and cause the porcelain to start turning yellow. Tobacco can also cause tooth decay and gum recession which can have a negative impact on your veneers and expensive treatments to correct.
Limit Foods & Drinks That Cause Staining
Even though your porcelain veneers are stain resistant, we recommend limiting foods and drinks that cause teeth stains to a minimum. This helps ensure that your veneers stay bright and white for many years to come!
Use Teeth Whitening Toothpaste
A great way to care for your new veneers is by investing in a dentist-approved teeth whitening toothpaste. A whitening toothpaste will help keep your veneers looking fresh and new. It also helps keep your natural teeth as white as possible so that your smile looks cohesive.
