We offer dental veneers as a way to improve the look of your smile. However, like all dental products, they require proper care to stay looking their best. Contact us today to learn more.

Here are five tips for keeping your veneers in top condition

1) Practice good oral hygiene -

This is the most important thing you can do to prolong the life of your veneers. Be sure to brush twice a day and floss once daily. Gum disease can cause inflammation in the gums and may even lead to receding gums. This can expose part of the veneer and impact the overall look of your smile. We have exceptional periodontics at our Denver office to serve our communities and help our clients tackle this issue. 

2) Avoid stain-causing foods and drinks -

Porcelain veneers are resistant to staining, but they are not immune. Try to avoid foods and drinks that are known to cause stains, such as coffee, tea, and red wine. Smoking cigarettes can also stain your teeth.

3) Protect your teeth from injury -

Be sure to wear a mouthguard if you play sports or participate in any activities where there is a risk of your teeth being injured.

4) Avoid chewing on hard objects -

Avoid chewing or biting on hard objects such as ice, which can damage your veneers. If you have a veneer that becomes chipped or cracked, it is important to have it repaired or replaced as soon as possible.

5) See your dentist regularly -

It is important to see your dentist for regular checkups and cleanings, even if you are taking good care of your teeth at home.
