Tips to Prevent Staining Your Veneers

Veneers can be stained by repeated exposure to:

One easy way of diminishing the risk of staining your veneers is by drinking with a straw. Also, reduce eating processed foods.

Proper tooth care is most important. Veneers are like natural teeth. They can be brushed and flossed, you should use a soft toothbrush and non-abrasive toothpaste. Just like the veneers can not be stained they can not be whitened by Zoom Whitening or by another whiting agent. 

You should floss at least once a day before you brush. This will help in removing all the food particles stuck in your mouth as well as bacteria. Removing bacteria from your mouth prevents decay underneath your veneers. Flossing twice a day will offer you enhanced oral hygiene benefits. 

Alcohol-based mouthwash is not recommended for people that have veneers.  The reason is that it may damage the dental bonding agent used to secure your veneers. This may weaken the bond of the veneer with your tooth and may cause the veneer to fully fall out entirely. Also, a lot of the mouthwashes have dye colors added that benefit the formula, but could stain your teeth. 

Routine cleaning and exams help keep your veneers bright and beautiful. These visits provide us a chance to check on the veneers to determine if one or more need to be replaced.
