What care do dental veneers need?

Regardless of whether it is porcelain or composite veneers, there are a series of cares that are fundamental for their maintenance , and to guarantee that they will be in perfect condition.

Oral hygiene

good oral hygiene is essential to care for your dental veneers , and your teeth. It is important that you brush your teeth a minimum of three times a day, ideally after each meal, as well as floss and mouthwash.

In this way, in addition to cleaning the veneers, you will avoid bacterial plaque, gingivitis or halitosis, among other oral problems.

Visits to the dentist

Regardless of whether you wear porcelain or composite dental veneers, it is important that at least once a year you go to the dentist and have a professional dental cleaning.

Attention to food

Although with veneers you can eat everything without any problem, it is recommended that you take precautions regarding certain foods that could discolor or damage composite veneers.

This is the case with coffee, wine or tea, sauces such as barbecue, ketchup or mustard, as well as nuts in the shell. And although it is not a food, here we also include tobacco, which is one of our worst enemies when it comes to having a clean mouth and white teeth .


Those people who suffer from bruxism and still opt for dental veneers, it is important that they use a dental splint at night , since otherwise the wear would occur too quickly.

You also have to be aware of the need to avoid friction on your teeth . The reason is the same as in the case of bruxism.


In the case of those who practice any contact sport , it is essential that they use a sports mouth guard , to avoid breaking the aesthetic veneer.


If you do not like your teeth and you dream of wearing a beautiful smile, which allows you to feel better and more confident with yourself, in dental veneers you will find a very good solution. Contact our dental clinic in San Vicente del Raspeig (Alicante) and we will inform you about our different treatments with dental veneers without any commitment.
