When it comes to porcelain veneers, a beautiful set can quickly change the confidence and look of your smile. One of the most common questions that patients consider is what kind of maintenance to practice to keep the veneers as effective as possible after the initial procedure. Here are several recommendations that can help you ensure your veneers continue to last long and keep your smile looking brilliant.

Porcelain Veneers

Avoiding Hot or Cold, Chewy Foods

After the initial week from treatment, your teeth may experience some increased sensitivity to hot or cold foods. In addition, it is recommended to avoid hard and chewy foods after your veneers treatment.

Continue Brushing and Flossing Practices

A veneers treatment from your dentist can be further supplemented with good brushing and flossing practices. Non-abrasive fluoride toothpastes can also be valuable in maintaining your veneers while keeping your teeth cleaned.

Avoid Clenching Your Teeth

If you frequently clench or grind your teeth, then consider using a mouth guard to help protect your veneers. Dr. Marine and her team in Glendale can help you select a mouth guard that can fit with your veneers.
