Do you have porcelain veneers? It’s important to talk to your dentist about proper maintenance techniques for your porcelain veneers in order to keep them looking good for a long time to come. First, make sure you maintain an excellent daily dental care routine in order to keep your veneers looking their best. That means brushing your teeth twice a day with a non-abrasive fluoride toothpaste and flossing daily. You should also continue to see your dentist regularly for teeth cleaning appointments and to check on the state of your veneers.In addition to maintaining proper oral health care, keep your veneers in shape by treating them delicately. Don’t use your teeth to rip open packing or hold items in place. Never crunch ice or chew on pens or pencils. Get rid of these nervous habits and show off your beautiful smile instead. If you have bruxism, the tendency to grind your teeth in your sleep, consider using a mouth guard at night to protect your veneers from damage.
