Tips On How To Keep Dental Veneers Clean

When it comes to natural looking teeth, porcelain veneers provide incredible strength with a very pleasing and aesthetic appearance. The good news is that when porcelain veneers or dental veneers are properly cared for they can last an entire lifetime. That said, daily wear and tear eventually could result in damage to porcelain veneers. When this is indeed the case the average life expectancy of dental veneers can be reduced to maybe one decade. Keeping dental veneers clean is absolutely essential.

The Look And Shade Of The Veneer Can Be Affected

When it comes to dental veneers, simply brush and floss as well as rinse as you would do with your natural teeth. While the veneer itself may not be susceptible to decay, the tooth located underneath the dental veneer can decay and discolor like any other type of natural tooth. When the teeth underlying the veneer become discolored, the look and shade of the veneer can be affected. One way of preventing dental veneers from becoming discolored or stained is to simply brush with a high quality whitening type toothpaste. In most cases a nonabrasive product that has a natural whitener or baking soda is the best option.

Avoid Exposure To Certain Food And Drinks

Equally important is to floss regularly as a way to avoid dental veneer breakage. As a note of caution, applying too much force or pressure when brushing or flossing can result in dental veneers becoming cracked or chipped. Work with your dental care provider to determine which type of technique in terms of brushing and flossing will be best for your particular needs. Finally, it is recommended to avoid exposure to food and drinks that will ultimately stain porcelain veneers. Avoid wine, tea, soda and coffee as well as other similar foods and drinks. Contact your Elk Grove dentist, Dr. My Huynh at Laguna Park Dentistry for more information on dental veneers and all that they make possible.
