questionstickiesIn an effort to improve the beauty of your smile, you may find yourself quite smitten with the benefits of porcelain veneers. They can cover up a medley of issues, from discoloration to chips and cracks. You may even custom select the shape and length of your teeth, as well as the shade. However, one factor that often keeps patients feeling unsure about this cosmetic solution follows: How to clean your veneers. The good news is that keeping your veneers looking just as beautiful as the day you receive them is not complicated at all.

Remember Their Strength Level

Porcelain veneers are a runner up just behind your natural teeth for their strength. This means that you can eat what you want most of the time. However, it’s always a good idea to avoid anything you think may damage your natural tooth tissue – such as extremely hard foods or habitual snacking on crunch items. Keeping in this line of thinking, it’s also wise to avoid habits like tearing packages with your teeth or biting your nails.

Practice Gentle Home Care

Just like we suggest for your natural smile, you want to clean your smile gently yet thoroughly, a suggestion that will protect your porcelain veneers as well as your teeth. When you brush, always use a toothbrush with soft bristles and light pressure. Avoid products that might scrape your teeth, which can include abrasive toothpastes.
