The dental veneers installed by your dentist, Dr. Timothy Dinkelman, are made from a material that is not subject to the ravages of tooth decay. Also, the porcelain material will not receive stains as deeply as your natural tooth enamel.

Despite these attributes, you should not be cavalier about the care, cleaning and daily maintenance of your dental veneers.

The dental veneers will still need to be brushed and flossed to maintain the health of the teeth underneath. This will help prevent tooth decay and gum disease.

When you’re eating, it’s important to keep in mind that your natural tooth enamel is significantly harder than the porcelain edge of your dental veneers. It is possible to chip the veneer when biting into or chewing hard foods. Instead, you should try to develop the habit of cutting hard foods into small pieces and popping them into your mouth.

With the proper care and maintenance, your dental veneers can provide you with a winning smile that will serve you for many years to come.
