Dental veneers are a popular and effective option for people who want to enhance their smile’s appearance. The white dental grade porcelain material used for each dental veneer will mimic the appearance of natural tooth enamel, while also being more resistant to future dental stains.
After your smile has been cosmetically restored, there are a few simple daily habits that can help preserve your dental veneers and the overall health of your mouth.
Even though the dental veneers will effectively resist dental staining, any visible tooth enamel one your other teeth will still be susceptible to dental stains. This can become apparent if certain teeth appear when you laugh or make demonstrative facial expressions.
It is also important to note that the porcelain material on the biting edge of each dental veneers might not have the same structural integrity as natural tooth enamel. To prevent a minor chip on a veneered tooth you might want to try cutting hard foods into small pieces and placing them in your mouth before chewing.
