How to Take Care of Porcelain Veneers
While porcelain veneers are made from human-made materials, the cosmetic dentists at Sutton Advanced Cosmetic Dentistry recommend that you take care of your porcelain veneers the same way you would take care of your natural teeth.
Porcelain veneers are highly durable and stain-resistant, but still require the delicacy and care of maintaining natural teeth. In order to maintain porcelain veneers, be wary of your sugar intake (in excess, it may cause erosion of the veneers):
1. Brush your Porcelain Veneers Twice a Day!
It goes without saying that brushing your teeth is crucial to maintaining natural teeth, as well as porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers are made from high quality, durable medical grade material that still requires daily upkeep and maintenance. It is important that you brush your teeth / veneers daily, at least twice a day.
2. Floss, Floss, Floss…
In addition to brushing twice a day, it is crucial that you floss your teeth once a day to keep veneers unobstructed by food or other debris (and of course, to practice basic oral hygiene).
3. Use Mouthwash Daily
Mouthwash is an effective method to protect your teeth from decay and other forms of erosion that can occur in both natural teeth and veneers. If mouthwash is not already part of your daily routine, start doing it now to protect your teeth from potential enamel damage.
4. A Tooth-friendly Diet is Everything!
While you should already be maintaining a teeth-friendly diet to care for your natural teeth, it is equally as important to do so with porcelain veneers. Veneers are renowned for their stain-resistant abilities, but that does not mean they are invincible. It is important to take care of your porcelain veneers by maintaining a diet with minimal sugary food intake or dark colored / staining liquids (red wine, coffee, tea, etc.) as regular, long-term use of these foods may cause the veneers to stain. It is ok to consume these foods in moderation.
Go to Your Yearly Dental Check-Ups
It is widely known that porcelain veneers are a durable and long-lasting option for cosmetic dental treatments, it is still necessary that you attend the suggested yearly dental check-up with the NYC porcelain veneers dentist. This will greatly help with the upkeep of your veneers.
