As with any dental restoration‚ porcelain veneers require some simple care to ensure that they continue to enhance your smile for years to come. Here at Brighton Dental‚ our expert San Diego dental team will explain everything you need to know when you have the procedure done‚ but here’s some general information about how to care for porcelain veneers.
Lots Of Good News With Veneers
Taking care of porcelain veneers is very much like taking care of your real teeth surfaces. You don’t have to change how you brush or floss – although it’s a good idea to make sure you only a soft toothbrush (which we recommend for everyone anyway).
Unlike older veneers‚ today’s porcelain is resistant to staining from most foods and beverages. That means you can eat and drink whatever you like and feel confident that your teeth will remain bright and beautiful for years to come.
In fact‚ porcelain veneers can last a decade to even 15 years or longer. It all depends on the brand and quality of the restoration you choose and how well you care for them.
Just A Few Things To Remember
For the very best results from your porcelain veneers‚ it’s best to avoid chewing on ice‚ fingernails‚ hard candies and other hard objects. If you have bruxism or any sort of grinding or clenching issue‚ a nighttime mouthguard might be appropriate. We recommend mouthguards for sports as well.
Of course‚ you shouldn’t use your teeth to open packages or crack nuts. And you’ll need regular dental visits – just as you do anyway.
