Receiving quality dental veneers can be an excellent investment in your smile because they can provide the white and flawless teeth you desire. Dental veneers are easy to care for, though you will need to adopt a few new daily habits to keep your dental veneers in good shape so that they can beautify your smile for years to come.

Though the porcelain of the dental veneers is not susceptible to tooth decay, they should still be part of your daily oral hygiene routine, such as brushing twice a day and flossing all of your teeth. Use a soft-bristled toothbrush and non-abrasive toothpaste when you brush the surfaces of your dental veneers to help your dental veneers maintain their polished and gleaming appearance.

Exercise caution when eating, too, since the porcelain edge of your dental veneer is not as tough as your natural tooth enamel and biting down on crunchy and hard foods can slightly chip in the biting edge of a veneer. You can still eat these foods, but they should be cut into chunks so that you can pop them into your mouth instead of biting off pieces.
