How to Keep Your Veneers Bright White

Veneers are a great way to reshape your teeth and smile. However, you may notice that they’re not as white as they once were. Fortunately, there are some things you can easily do here.

Maintain Good Oral Hygiene

Keeping your veneers clean and white is a matter of maintaining a proper oral health care routine. This routine is no different from how you’d take care of your natural teeth. You must brush your teeth twice daily for two minutes each time, floss at least once daily, and visit our office on a regular basis for dental cleanings. Visiting us twice yearly won’t only help you maintain crisp, white teeth and veneers, but it’ll also ensure that nothing is going wrong with your oral health.

Avoid Any Beverage That May Stain Your Teeth

One of the easiest ways in which your veneers will lose their vibrant white look is by you drinking beverages like coffee, tea, or red wine. Smoking and chewing tobacco will also stain your veneers. The good news is that if you can’t avoid these things, there are some stain-resistant veneers available today. Make sure you discuss this option with us before we put veneers on your teeth, though, since we may not always use those options.

Consume a Healthy Diet

There are many great reasons why you should maintain a healthy diet. Not only will it make you feel better, but it can also help you maintain whiter teeth. For instance, crunchy produce like apples and celery scrapes plaque off your teeth when you eat it.

If you can make these small changes in your overall lifestyle, we feel that you’ll be much happier with your dental veneers. Knowing this, if you’re ready to get veneers, we encourage you to call and set up an appointment so we can get the process started for you as soon as possible.
