Worries and Solutions About Porcelain Veneers

Worry: Veneers are going to look great but I’ll have to be really careful with the foods I eat.

Solution: The truth is, you will not have to change anything at all once you receive your veneers. They are known in part for their ability to resist stains. While this does not mean they are completely stain-proof, it means you can keep eating the foods you like to eat (and the beverages) without excessive concerns regarding staining. Keep brushing and flossing each day and you’ll be in good shape.

Worry: My veneers will probably become fractured pretty quickly – I’m not a very delicate person.

Solution: Whether you practice extreme caution or if you live your life to the fullest, your veneers will remain in good shape. Similar to your teeth, they’re known for their durable nature, which tends to keep them in one piece barring severe circumstances.

Worry: Porcelain veneers are going to require some serious upkeep – I’m not sure I’m ready for that.

Solution: Actually, veneers require the same care we recommend for your natural smile. They are composed of porcelain, which is extremely similar to your tooth tissue. This means you will need to brush your teeth two times a day with nonabrasive toothpaste and a soft-bristle toothbrush. You will also need to floss once a day. Not too bad.
