How often do you reassess your dental care routine? When was the last time you changed your toothbrush?
Your new dental veneers represent a serious investment in giving you a better smile. With a couple of changes in your everyday habits they can continue to provide you with a smooth and even smile for a long time to come.
Your new dental veneers need to be included in your daily oral hygiene routine. Even though the porcelain material that is not subject to tooth decay, it is still important to keep the underlying teeth healthy and strong.
You should also keep in mind that the porcelain biting edge of your dental veneers is not as hard as natural tooth enamel. Biting down on hard foods, or a bad habit of chewing your fingernails, or nibbling on pens and pencils can cause minor chips on your dental veneers. If you want to enjoy crunchy foods, you should get in the habit of cutting them into chunks, before popping them in your mouth.
Staining can also be a consideration. The dental veneers will only take on surface stains. If you have premolars or other teeth that are partially visible in your smile they could stain in a way that is noticeable compared to the white shade of the veneers.
If you have questions about the best way to maintain your new dental veneers, please feel free to call Swati Agarwal, DDS at 415-362-5315 to schedule an appointment.
