The Steps That Go Into Keeping Veneers Safe

Posted on 2/10/2020 by Oasis Dental
The Steps That Go Into Keeping Veneers SafeVeneers are great for people who want to improve their smile and take better care of their oral health. The most common material veneers are made out of is porcelain. However, veneers can be made out of many different materials.

While veneers are strong, the materials they are made out of aren't as resilient as natural teeth. It's possible to keep veneers in good condition for many years with a little planning.

Veneers made out of porcelain are more likely to get stained by drinking dark liquids. This is because porcelain veneers are more porous than natural teeth.

One way to enjoy drinks like coffee and tea with less risk of staining is to enjoy them using a straw. If you want to enjoy your morning cup of Joe, don't fret! You can use a straw. When you use a straw, the liquid that you're drinking comes in less contact with your teeth. It may take a little getting used to, but it'll help your veneers stay white for a longer amount of time.

Avoid Excessively Hard Foods

Another way you can protect your veneers is to avoid eating hard foods or chewing on ice. Veneers can handle other foods, but hard foods carry the risk of breaking or chipping your veneers. It's also important to note that if you grind your teeth, your veneers are at risk for damage.

Constant teeth grinding puts a lot of force on your teeth and doing so may cause your veneers to crack. Luckily, we can provide you with a mouth guard to protect your teeth from damage if you grind your teeth at night. If you have any more questions about how to keep your veneers looking beautiful, please call our office. With the right help, you'll be able to keep your veneers for many years to come.
A better kind of dental practice for your entire family.
