Your new dental veneers represent a serious investment in giving you the brilliant and even smile of your dreams. Gaining some new dental habits will help ensure that they provide you with your ideal smile for many years to come.

Even though the porcelain veneers are not vulnerable to tooth decay, they will still need to be a part of your daily oral hygiene regimen. Be sure you brush and floss all of your teeth twice per day. Try to brush the faces of the veneers with a soft bristled toothbrush and a nonabrasive toothpaste to help maintain their polished look.

When you are eating, try to remember that your natural tooth enamel is going to be harder than the porcelain biting edge of the veneer. Biting down on hard and crunchy foods can cause chips in the biting edge of one or more veneers. You can still eat these foods, but it is good to get in the habit of cutting these foods into chunks and popping them into your mouth, rather than biting them off.

We invite you to contact our dental office at (404) 321-4588 with any questions and to schedule a consultation with our dentist. We look forward to helping you maintain your new, appealing smile for many years to come.
