Investing time and money in renewing your smile with porcelain veneers is a big step, and once you take this step, you’ll want to protect your investment! The care of porcelain veneers is very important for their long life. In this article we have prepared for you, we have written what you need to know about the care of porcelain veneers.
Do Not Chew Hard Substances
Biting and chewing are common nervous habits. Biting nails, chewing pens and pencils, crushing ice, chewing hard candy, and other similar things are very common but can be devastating to your teeth. Veneers are not as strong as natural teeth, so they can be easily damaged by the impact of chewing such objects.
Polish Your Coatings
Cosmetic dentists can help with the finer details of caring for porcelain veneers, and one of the services you should take advantage of is polishing. For cosmetic dentistry, clinicians can help you get the most out of your dental work by polishing your veneers. This helps them stay clean and shiny!
Avoid Stains and Discoloration
Porcelain veneers are inherently stain-resistant, more durable than natural tooth material, but they can still stain, and in some cases, the tooth underneath the veneer can stain. Avoid foods and beverages that can stain teeth, such as coffee, tea, wine, chocolate, and strawberries, and if you do consume them, brush or rinse your mouth as soon as possible after a meal!
Protect Your Teeth
Be sure to protect your teeth while playing sports, exercising at the gym or cycling. Teethers can be a real smile guard! Impacts to the face can shatter or break the veneers or cause the tooth to break. There is also the possibility that the tooth itself could be badly damaged by taking the veneer and falling off!
A surprising number of people, whether they realize it or not, are also known as teeth grinding and bruxism. This grinding pressure erodes the teeth and causes chips and fractures. It can also damage coatings! This is just one way we help our patient find the best way to care for their porcelain veneers and correct any underlying problems that may exist.
