Dental Veneers Need Some Basic Care to Help Maintain Your White Smile

Posted .

The custom shaped and shaded dental veneers installed on your teeth by your dentist, Dr. Rosendo Garza, are made from a special porcelain material. The veneers are not as receptive to staining as natural tooth enamel. With some basic care and daily cleaning, you can help maintain your new, white smile for many years to come.

It’s important to keep in mind that the dental veneers are only cemented over the faces of the teeth in your smile. The remainder of the tooth remains the same. This means the teeth will still need to be brushed twice each day and flossed every evening to prevent tooth decay and complications from gum disease.  

It’s also important to note that porcelain is not as hard as natural tooth enamel. Recklessly biting into hard and crunchy foods could potentially chip the porcelain biting edge. You can still enjoy crunchy foods, but it’s a good idea to get in the habit of cutting them into chunks and popping them into your mouth.

With these basic oral hygiene and daily choices in mind, you should have no trouble maintaining your white and winning smile between your regular dental cleanings.
