Your new dental veneers represent a serious investment in giving you your dream smile. Forming some new habits will help ensure that you keep your ideal smile for many years to come.

Even though porcelain veneers are not vulnerable to tooth decay, they will still need to be included in your daily oral hygiene regimen. Make sure you brush and floss all of your teeth twice per day. To maintain their polished appearance, try to brush the faces of the veneers with a soft bristled toothbrush and a nonabrasive.

When you are eating, try to remember that your natural tooth enamel is going to be harder than the biting edge of the veneer. Biting down on hard and crunchy foods can cause minor chips in the biting edge of one or more veneers. You can still eat hard, crunchy 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.
