Porcelain Veneers Before and After | Reveal Dental

A great way to transform your transform smile quickly can be with Porcelain Veneers. Veneers are very thin pieces of porcelain that are placed over the top of your natural teeth. Veneers can instantly make cracks, defects, and stains all disappear. Your Cedar Park dentist can also adjust what your teeth may look like and you can get the exact smile you are hoping for!

But, just like your real teeth, proper oral hygiene and care are essential if you want your new smile to maintain its looks and a bright shine. So, to help, our Cedar Park dental team has prepared a guide on how to properly care for your porcelain veneers.

How to Care for Your New Teeth Veneers

1. Be Aware if You Grind Your Teeth

Many people grind their teeth, and if you do, you must let your dentist in Cedar Park know so they can create a mouthguard to protect your teeth from nighttime grinding. The reason for this is that, just like real teeth, grinding can damage and cause wear and tear on porcelain veneers.

2. Proper Oral Hygiene

As mentioned above, one reason they are so popular is because they are like real teeth. And just like teeth, you need to brush them, floss, and use mouthwash just like you would if you didn’t have them.

Maintaining proper oral habits like teeth whitening, and Dental Hygiene will maximize your veneers, keep them looking white, and improve your overall health.

3. Avoid Chewing Things

Porcelain veneers can be a little more fragile when compared to your natural teeth. So, keeping that in mind, if you have the habit of chewing on your work pen caps, try your best not to since this can potentially damage your veneers and your real teeth as well.

4. Keep Away from Food & Drinks that Stain

While they can almost magically make years of wear and stains vanish from your teeth, veneers are still vulnerable to being stained. If you consumed a lot of staining food and drinks, your new bright smile could possibly fade. Try to avoid such things as coffee, teas, pop, wine, nicotine products, soy sauce, etc. If you do have them, try your best to brush right after to avoid staining.
