The field of cosmetic dentistry has come a long way over the years. There are all kinds of cosmetic restorations that can fix problems like yellowing, crooked, chipped and even missing teeth. One of these cosmetic restorations is known as porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers are placed directly over your real teeth after they've been shaved down. To everyone else, they look just like your natural teeth. Proper cleaning and care is required to keep them looking great.
- Skill level:
Use an ultra-soft toothbrush to clean your porcelain veneers. More abrasive brushes can damage the surface.
Use an electric toothbrush. This helps remove any stains that form on your porcelain veneers.
Brush with a nonabrasive toothpaste at least twice a day. Brushing after every meal is better to prevent stains. A toothpaste that contains baking soda and fluoride is best.
Floss between your porcelain veneers after brushing just as you do your natural teeth. This helps to clean between them.
Rinse your mouth with a fluoride-containing rinse. Avoid mouthwashes with alcohol because these damage porcelain veneers.
