What Can I Do to Keep My Veneers Clean?

By placing veneers on top of the teeth, we can accomplish a variety of things such as close gaps, make teeth even in length, cover dark stains, and create a perfect Hollywood smile. Porcelain veneers are durable and stain-resistant, but not impervious to damage. Dental veneers are not permanent. Their duration is based on how you care for them. Once veneers have been placed, you can help extend their life expectancy. Caring for your veneers is easy.

Tips to Keep Your Porcelain Veneers Clean:

  • Brush, floss, and rinse regularly

  • Use a soft-bristled toothbrush and non-abrasive toothpaste

  • Avoid food and drinks that stain your teeth

  • Do not bite into hard candy or ice

  • Do not use a mouthwash with alcohol as an ingredient

The teeth under your veneers can still accumulate plaque and tartar. If cavities develop on these teeth, they might not be able to support your veneers after your dentist treats the decay. it's still important to maintain proper dental hygiene and regular visits to your dentist for cleanings and checkups.
