Dr. Andrew Atwood and the associates at his dental clinic installed dental veneers onto your teeth to enhance and preserve your smile’s appearance. The special dental grade porcelain material they were created from will resist dental stains better than your natural tooth enamel. This will help you have an appealing, white smile that is easy to maintain in the long term.
Adopting a few simple habits and making minor lifestyle changes can help preserve your dental veneers as well as the overall health of your mouth.
While dark beverages and tobacco use will not affect the porcelain of the dental veneers, your other teeth in your mouth might still be susceptible to future dental stains. This can become apparent if certain teeth appear when you laugh or make exaggerated facial expressions.
The porcelain material on the biting edge of the dental veneers might not be as hard as your natural tooth enamel. To prevent a minor chip on a veneered tooth you might want to try cutting hard foods into small pieces and popping them in your mouth.
If you have recently had dental veneers installed on your teeth at Dr. Andrew Atwood’s dental offices in Orem, Utah and you have a question or concern about how to maintain them, you can always call 801-225-1002 to speak to one of the staff members at Double Take Dental.
