Helpful Information Before You Receive Porcelain Veneers


receiving porcelain veneers. This procedure involves placing wafer-like shells to the front of your teeth. They are custom-made to hide flaws with the color, shape, and condition of your teeth, and make your smile look flawless. This cosmetic dental procedure is permanent, as you will not be able to remove the veneers. However, when you maintain good oral care habits, you can sustain your smile’s new appearance.

Will Having Porcelain Veneers Affect What I Can Eat And Drink?

Your veneers are durable enough to handle biting and chewing tasks, and the material is stain-resistant. However, you should know that you will not be able to use whitening agents on your veneers, like you would your natural teeth. Take care to limit your consumption of color-rich items, particularly dark liquids, to avoid discoloration.

How Do I Take Care Of My Teeth After I Receive Veneers?

Your brushing and flossing habits will still be important after you receive veneers. Your dentist can recommend a non-abrasive toothpaste, but you should keep up with your regular habits of brushing and flossing.

How Long Will My Veneers Last?

The condition of your veneers should stay in good shape for many years. Of course, your habits after you receive them will affect their ultimate lifespan. Make sure you take care of your teeth at home, and keep up with preventive dental appointments. Taking better care of your veneers will help you enjoy their benefits for longer.
