When you get porcelain veneers, you want them to last. They're beautiful pieces of dental work, and it's natural that you want to enjoy them for as long as possible.
Fortunately, veneers do a lot of their own maintenance work. They're strong and durable, and they are firmly bonded to your teeth. As such, they can be expected to last for at least a decade.
Of course, veneers aren't completely self-maintaining. You have to take care of them as well. The good news is that maintaining your porcelain veneers is really quite simple.
Put simply, maintaining porcelain veneers is a matter of embracing basic dental hygiene. You won't need any special techniques or devices to keep your veneers looking great. You don't need to do anything unique- you just need to do what you should be doing anyway.
This means brushing your teeth twice a day and flossing on a daily basis. It also means visiting your dentist at least once every six months for a routine cleaning and check-up.
You want to get the most out of your veneers. And you can, just by showing simple diligence in your dental hygiene routine.
