Maintaining your veneers is an integral part of achieving a beautiful smile. If you have porcelain veneers, you may want to follow these simple tips to keep your veneers in prestige condition.
Stay up to date on your oral hygiene routine
Although veneers don’t decay, it’s important to still make sure you are brushing and flossing your teeth regularly. The areas around your veneers are still susceptible to certain types of dental issues, so you want to be sure that you are caring for your teeth the best way you can.
Reduce your consumption on foods and drinks that stain your teeth
Minimize your risk of wine, tea, coffee, and other stain-causing foods and beverages. Over time, veneers can develop stains, so it’s important to brush and floss your teeth regularly and especially after you consume anything that may stain your veneers.
Avoid tobacco use
Smoking can reduce the shelf life of your veneers. Not only can smoking affect the appearance of your veneers, but it can also negatively impact your overall health. Be sure to find ways to quit smoking. If you are having any issues with finding ways to limit your tobacco use, be sure to talk to your primary care doctor at your next appointment.
Schedule routine visits to the dentist
It is always important to visit your dentist at least twice a year for a routine exam and thorough dental cleaning. Both processes are a key part of maintaining excellent oral health. During your visit, your dentist can also check the condition of your veneers and determine if further adjustments are needed.
