The new dental veneers installed in your mouth by our dentist have been created from a special dental-grade porcelain material. They have been shaded to perfectly mimic lustrous white tooth enamel.
Not only will the dental veneers immediately improve your smile’s appearance, they will also not be as receptive to future dental stains. This will give you a gleaming white smile that will be very easy to maintain throughout the coming years.
As you go about your day, it’s important to keep in mind that the biting surfaces of the veneered teeth will not be as strong as natural tooth enamel. If you routinely enjoy very hard foods, you might suffer a minor chip to one or two of your dental veneers.
Fortunately, you can avoid this minor problem by cutting off chunks of crunchy foods and popping them in your mouth. This will allow you to break down the food with your premolars and molars.
It’s also important to remember that while the veneers will not be susceptible to tooth decay, the remaining surfaces of the teeth could still develop cavities. So it’s best to stay in the habit of brushing all surfaces of the teeth twice each day and flossing at least once.
If you had dental veneers installed on your teeth at Dr. Steven Oshins’s Guilderland, New York dental office and you have a question about how to maintain them, you can always call 518-356-5635 to speak to a staff member at Oshins Of Smiles.
