Ready to transform your smile? Porcelain veneers are the way to do it. With proper care, you can look forward to enjoying your veneers for a lifetime. Read on to learn how to best care for your smile.

Caring for Your Veneers

Part of the beauty of veneers is that once they are placed, they actually don’t require any additional care. So go ahead and give your veneers the same TLC you would give your natural teeth. However, if you’ve been lapsing in your dental care, now’s the time to pick up the slack. That means committing to brushing at least twice every day, for two minutes each time. You should also floss every day, and visit the dentist every six months for a routine cleaning and exam.

Protecting Your Veneers

Since veneers are naturally stain- and chip-resistant, there’s not much you need to do to keep them sparkling. However, you should make sure to protect them from needless damage. Just like your natural teeth, veneers are very strong, but that doesn’t mean they absolutely can’t chip. Never chew on ice, use your teeth as a tool, or chew on object like a pen or pencil end. And if you’re in the habit of grinding your teeth, break it. Your dentist can also help you get fitted with a mouthguard that’ll quell nighttime grinding.
