If you have made the decision to invest in some dental veneers, it’s important to know how to care for your veneer to ensure high-quality results for a lifetime. Here are three tips and tricks on how to keep your veneers in tip-top shape—not just for this fall season, but for the many seasons to come:
1.Keep up with the basics: Brushing your teeth twice a day, flossing once a day, and rinsing with mouthwash daily are perfect at-home treatments that help you maintain awesome oral health. Also, don’t forget to keep up with your regular dental visits every six months so your teeth and veneers can be deeply cleaned.
2.Avoid drinking drinks and eating foods that can darken your smile: Some drinks and foods naturally darken your teeth, such as coffee, tea, red wine, beets, and even some berries. It’s best to avoid dark, stain-potential drinks so you can keep your teeth and veneers looking as white and as clean as possible.
3.Avoid foods that can harm your veneers: There are some foods out there that can cause damage to your dental veneers. Some of these foods include ice or hard candy. Other things that can harm your veneers include chewing your fingernails and chewing on pen caps. These habits can cause your veneers to chip and become damaged. It’s best to avoid these foods and habits so you can maintain your flawless smile.
