Often when patients receive porcelain veneers, they are motivated to keep up with their oral health to preserve their veneers. What does your cosmetic dentist in Fairfax, VA, recommend to protect your dental veneers?
Brushing and flossing are the key. Veneers are resistant to decay, however, the decay can still grow on the teeth supporting the veneers. When selecting your toothpaste, avoid highly abrasive toothpaste because it’ll scratch the finishing gloss of your veneers. Your brand new veneers act as your natural teeth; so it can break and crack when not taken care of properly. Avoid biting on hard objects such as pins, popcorn kernels, nails, bottle caps, etc. Follow these great tips from Drs. McMillan and LaViola, and your porcelain veneers can last a lifetime.
