How to Properly Care for Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers can be used to cover up minor to moderate imperfections in your smile, from stains to gaps to misshapen teeth. With proper care, porcelain veneers can last for years to come.
Porcelain veneers are made from very thin layers of porcelain that are attached only to the fronts of the teeth. They can be used to cover stained teeth, to give teeth a more even and symmetrical appearance, and can even be used to mask gaps in between the teeth. Porcelain veneers are attached with a special adhesive that is meant to last for a long time.
However, you still must take care of your porcelain veneers as you do your regular teeth in order to maintain the appearance and to prevent chipping or staining. Continue with your normal brushing and flossing routine and see our expert in veneers in North Hollywood twice a year for regular exams. With porcelain veneers, it is important to avoid:
• Clenching or grinding of teeth
• Biting ice and hard foods or objects
• Alcoholic beverages
• Large amounts of staining foods or beverages, such as red wine or coffee
