In this case, there are measures you can take to whiten your veneers and either reduce or completely remove the stains.

  1. 1

    Brush your teeth regularly with whitening toothpaste. It is true that whitening dental products cannot directly change the veneers themselves, but they can keep new stains from forming.

  2. 2

    Use Supersmile toothpaste if regular whitening toothpaste does not solve the problem. Supersmile toothpaste, which can be found at chemists, is specifically designed for removing stains on cosmetic dental work veneers and bonding.

  3. 3

    Set up an appointment with a professional cosmetic dentist for a full maintenance polish on your veneers. This procedure will whiten your stained veneers and also keep them from deteriorating more quickly. Use your computer to research reputable cosmetic dentists in your area and ask for referrals from friends and family to find a provider.

Tips and warnings

  • Regular brushing and flossing will prevent plaque build-up and help to keep you veneers in good condition.
