Dental veneers often involve special maintenance and care to keep them looking their best. There are numerous do’s and don’ts that are associated with having dental veneers.
At Preferred Family Dentistry, a patient with porcelain or composite veneers should avoid power polishing, pumice polishing, acidulated fluoride treatments and ultrasonic scalers.
These procedures can damage the aesthetics of the veneers and in some cases make the tooth more susceptible to recurrent decay. To maintain the luster of the veneers it is recommended the patient see our dentist or hygienist who specializes in veneers to polish the dental veneers and the critical bond area twice a year.
