One of the most effective ways to get a more beautiful smile is with porcelain veneers offered by Dr. Phillip Miner and the team at Miner Dental in San Antonio, Texas. Your smile is the most important feature of your face, and when you can smile confidently, it makes you more approachable, increases your job opportunities, and can even impact your physical health.
Porcelain veneers can be pricey, but they’re a huge investment in your well-being. Let’s dive into some tips for caring for porcelain veneers.
When you brush twice a day, be sure to use a soft toothbrush. A hard-bristled brush can damage the polish on your porcelain veneers.
Porcelain veneers aren’t invincible, and chewing on ice can cause your veneers to chip.
If you clench or grind your teeth, you risk wearing down your veneers and damaging the porcelain. Treatment options for grinding and clenching can help.
When your teeth feel rough and fuzzy, you’re probably leaving dental plaque behind after brushing your teeth. This roughness is plaque, and sugar is the main culprit.
Some foods and beverages stain your teeth or cause your veneers to chip. Avoid these foods, or brush right after consuming them.
Few things stain teeth as severely as tobacco. This includes:
Using toothpaste with grit and other abrasive substances can damage your veneers.
