How to Maintain Your Veneers

Veneers are a popular cosmetic dental treatment that can transform the look of your smile. They’re thin, custom-made shells made of porcelain bonded to the front surface of your teeth. At Boulder Smiles, we offer some of the most advanced white teeth veneer options available, but we know that it’s important to take proper care of them to ensure they last as long as possible. Today we’ll review our top tips for maintaining your veneers so you can enjoy a beautiful, healthy smile for years to come.

Practice Good Oral Hygiene

Whether you have veneers or not, good oral hygiene is essential. Brush your teeth twice a day with fluoride toothpaste, and floss daily to remove plaque and food particles from between your teeth. Be gentle when you brush and floss around your veneers to avoid damaging them.

Avoid Hard, Sticky, or Chewy Foods

While your veneers are strong and durable, they’re not indestructible. Certain foods, such as hard candy, ice, or popcorn kernels, can chip or crack your veneers. Sticky foods, like caramel or taffy, can also pull them off your teeth. Take care to avoid these foods to ensure your white teeth veneers last for years to come.

Don’t Use Your Teeth As Tools

While it can be tempting to use your teeth to rip into a hard-to-open bag, using your teeth as tools can cause damage to your porcelain veneers. Always use scissors or another tool instead of your teeth.
