If you are new to having dental veneers in your smile, then it is important to remember how to care for them properly. Our team here at Langworthy Family Dentistry in Fuquay-Varina, North Carolina, is happy to give you advice on how to care for your dental veneers, so they can last and give you a dazzling smile for years to come.

Dental veneers are the custom-made shells bonded to the front of your tooth, which hides flaws in your smiles like discolored, cracked or chipped teeth. Dental veneers do not consist of tooth enamel. In many cases, they are made of either resin materials or porcelain giving you the flawless look. As a result, they do not suffer from tooth decay, but can still stain from dark drinks like wine or tobacco use.

Even though your dental veneer is not made of tooth enamel, the tooth behind your veneer still is, so brushing and flossing your smile is essential to keep your smile healthy. Cavities and gum disease can still appear if you neglect your oral health hygiene routine. It is also vital to remember to make your regular dental cleanings with Dr. Kristen Langworthy every six months. This will help keep your oral health in tip-top shape and veneers in healthy condition.
